“Lovely place, Great ambience n Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2011

A wonderful place to go to. Amazing hospitality, considerate and freindly approach. AMAZing view from the 1st floor.
Food is decent nothing to write home about.
The Rooms are wonderful and the Balcony is just perfect. It is just a few meters from the forest enterance.
Do try and get the Jeep Safari / the Boat safari tickets well in advance
Jeep = 12000 for a jeep. Boat = 150 a head

stayed in ranger woods (09447130183) for 2 nights,with my wife,son and parents.we had booked 2 rooms..(they have a total of 5 rooms if i am not wrong).unfortunately the day we visited,the cook had gone on leave..but sunil(owner of ranger woods)and his mom made all arrangements for our dinner and breakfast.The breakfast cooked by sunil's mom,and it was really good.As i was travelling with my baby,my wife was allowed into the kitchen to cook up a meal off eggs and milk.The rooms were very clean,with clean toilets and linen
The property is in the midst of cardamom plantations and the tea estates are a short walk away.Although i didnt get a chance to go for a walk,sunil recommended the same to me.
Sunil arranged for a very friendly driver (09495690904-tata indigo) who was a local and knew munnar like the back of hand.He was with us for our trip to allepy also.I recommend u fix ur taxi tariff for the entire trip before you start your trip.
Will surely recommend this homestay for families and couples.

The rooms appear to be clean...but there is no possibility for fresh air in the room. Reason being _ the balcony backs to the marshland...making it stinky and humid. The moment you open the door you have all sorts of bugs entering the room. So the rooms are never aired and smells very stuffy. All three of us fell sick after the visit there. It was a nightmare for me and unfortunately we had already paid for the nights...leaving us with no option to get our money back.

Ranger woods is about 7 kms from Munnar town surrounded by cardamom plantations on one side and tea plantations on the other making it a beautiful stay option.The highlight is the calls of lots of birds in the early morning including the whistling thrush.The hosts and their entire team are very hospitable and accomodative.The cook Prashant prepares very delicious food but you need to inform about your food choice well in advance as the food is prepared fresh on order unlike in restaurants. Sunil has readily agreed to take us to a long walk midst the beautiful plantations and shared with us lot of his knowledge of Munnar which is the highlight of our entire trip to Munnar.

This friendly homestay, run by Sunil and his mother Mary, is a large house set among cardamom and tea plantations at Pothamedu, about seven winding kilometres above the town of Munnar. Its three guest bedrooms, leading off a large open-air balcony with a seating area, are basic and could, maybe, do with a lick of paint, but they are perfectly comfortable and any shortcomings are more than made up by the friendly, homely atmosphere. Our room had a private wet-room style shower and toilet, and a terrific view of the forest on one side.

Ranger Woods is known for good food, prepared by Mary and her cook, and served in its small dining room. Despite gloomy weather during most of our stay, Sunil took us for a very interesting and informative walk among the plantations and was always on hand to provide information and help.

Sunil’s brother, Anil, together with his wife Jeeva, also run a very pleasant homestay named Royal Mist a little lower down, about ten kilometres away. Actually, this is where we had originally booked but Jeeva had been taken ill just before our arrival and Anil had thoughtfully made the alternative arrangements with his brother. We did visit Royal Mist for an excellent lunch and I think it may be slightly more up-to-date - it certainly had one big plus in that it had free Wifi, which Ranger Woods didn't. However, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ranger Woods and would return if we ever managed to have another holiday in this lovely area.

We stayed in Ranger Woods for 2 nights and had a very good time.
Our room was clean and spacious and everything was in working order (including hot water!).
It's a bit far from Munnar itself and you will require a taxi or your own car to get there.
But Ranger Woods is located on this quiet country road with access to tea plantation 5 minutes away..which we weren't able to hike through as it's been forbiden recently (apparently..)...and therefore the only traffic are other taxi or tea plantation workers going to or from work.
I really enjoyed the stay as in the morning and the evening the forest comes alive through its inhabitants. Never heard so many birds singing at the same time, but at the same time it sounded coordinated. It really made me feel away from home!

Food was brilliant! Simple indian food but very tasty. Service was fairly quick but then it was only the 2 of us at the time.
