We stayed for 2 nights in the treehouse and after spending time in Mumbai, Kolkata and Delhi it was a delight to be able to completely switch off. We got a pick up from the airport it would have been too much to tackle public transport as the resort is a good 15 minutes drive off the main road, up a hill and well hidden. Perfect to getaway from it all! All the food was freshly cooked and it was some of the best we ate in India. Who knew homemade Puris were so delicious?! There are no creature comforts in the treehouse though hot water was available and my husband and I were able to spend some good quality time together.
One piece of advice if you organise a day trip out and about in munnar (we paid around Rs1600) head to top station first and avoid some of the awful tourist sites like echo point. You MUST visit the Tata DARE project (or Shristi I think its called) it was the best thing we saw in munnar as it was a community based project making natural fabrics and paper products.
