“Awesome place to stay and enjoy. (Couple, Family, Bachelors, etc…)”
Reviewed 28 November 2013

If you want to enjoy the trip with the nature, I will advise to visit this place (Eco Friendly Wildlife Resort).

It is situated 20kms away from the Munnar town but it’s a worth of staying in this resort. You will feel the worth once you travel from the Munnar town to the resort. You can see the natural beauty on the way to the resort and after reaching the resort you will find the real beauty of the nature.

I have stayed for three days but really it was touched my heart very much. Resort was placed in top of the mountain, resorts are fully surrounded by mountains and tea plantation, resorts looks natural feel with different kinds of plants and flowers, swing, it was created innovatively with some beautiful arts, wood. Swimming Pool was very clean and maintained well.

Day 1 we have spent full day in the resort, since it was very nice to admire the natural beauty of the resort and the place. Near to the resort (Walkable distance) tea plantation, waterfall, etc..
Dining Hall was decorated well with the paintings; pictures are drawn using the cement and it looks beautiful.

Anil, the Manager of the resort was very friendly from the day 1 and he is helpful in explaining about the place, etc..

Jaison Luiz, MD of the resort was another nice friendly man. According to the name Eco Friendly, all was very friendly that’s feeling a lot when we left the resort . We felt that we could have spent few more days in the resort.

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner: It was awesome I need to say. All the foods were served very hot according to the cold climate. It was very tasty. The prices of the food were average.
Eagerly waiting for another trip to the same resort.

Eco Friendly Wildlife Resort is the best resort in the Munnar I believe with the beautiful nature.

Suggestion : Please reserve one full day to stay in the resort itself to enjoy the natural beauty of the resort and nearby tea plantation and waterfall. I had one full day to enjoy in the resort and stayed for 3 days in the resort, but still have the feel of the resort. Its unforgettable.

Thanks Eco Friendly Wildlife Resort…………..

This place is in the middle of knowhere, which is great on one hand as it's beautiful but it restricts your shopping around for the best daytrips as you're largely limited to what the hotel offers. However they supplied us with a very friendly taxi driver, the price was fair. There is no internet here and the place feels a bit random and dead. The room was clean but the price too high. If you stay hear there is a chance you could like it more than me, make sure you check the location works for you.

Nice one , must visited if you are nature lover. Cottages are good as well as availability of tasty food though located at remote location. You can enjoy their swimming pool also. There is a excellent water fall near to this resort at walking distance.

We booked the standard suite for 2 nights with my one year old daughter and it was a wonderful experience. Although the resort is located somewhat inside, the stay was comfortable and the manager and waiters are very much helpful and kind enough to prepare baby food for my daughter. The rooms are clean. The resort location is awesome and very much close to nature..... Would definitely recommend it for family. Thanks for making our stay in Munnar memorable !!

Visited elephant resort 1/11 and 2/11. It was a wonderful experience. We stayed at the bamboo cottage. The view from the cottage was superb!! The resort itself is very beautiful.The resort is nestled in a very quiet place , little far from munnar town, but if you are looking for views and silence, go for it, it is the best you will find.

Being a mallu suggested this resort to my other state colleagues. Contact person Anil confirmed the so called bamboo cottage though he didn't send the email confirmation saying internet is not working and assured cottage availability without advance. Anil confirmed the cottages when we started from Cochin. On reaching Munnar, Anil's phone as well as all other munnar numbers of this resort became not reachable. Somehow we managed to find the resort which is situated 20kms away from Munnar @ night 9. Reji, the incharge came with the news Anil has left with the message: Non availablity of cottage or any rooms as advance was not paid. Further communication with cochin office was attended by Seetharaman(the same guy who is writing meaningless excuses for bad reviews here), ended up to be meaningless as he was shielding Anil (Excuses like no advance and nowhere in munnar rooms will be available today). By then the in charge Reji arranged 2 below average double rooms in nearby resort Exotica. The booked cottage as we were able to see was occupied by a larger group(Of course more people means more money). As assured next day we were moved to cottage but ended up paying almost double than what was promised. Before writing this review only we found out the online booking options through trip advisor with much cheaper rates for the so called bamboo cottage. The whole munnar turned out to be disaster because of the attitude of this single guy, Anil.

Had worst experience with this resort. Made phone booking for cottage and on reaching there we were informed cottages were already occupied and no rooms are available. Anil with whom booking was made was not reachable as his phone was switched off. Later accommodated in a nearby resort.

Room Tip: Dont trust the manager Anil. Better to book online.
