Reviewed 27 June 2014

People at The Wind only know how to earn money. They charged us 2200 for a cab that was suposed to take us to Top Station, the driver took us back mid way stating we have to go back but charged us in full 2200.

I stayed at Wind in April. Place is very good, people are courteous.Bur no internet facility and food service is okay as the staff neither understands hindi nor english properly. Morning tea is a problem...overall a comfortable stay.

I stayed at The Wind Munnar in June 2014. The view is just breathtaking. You can get a whole view of the valley in front of your room and the view is unobstructed by any other man made construction since there are no artificial construction around. The only thing you see on all sides is lush green trees. The property is situated a little off the Munnar town and that is why it is so much tucked away into nature. While coming here you have to pass through a place which is known as "Lockhart Gap". This "Lockhart Gap" is a place to see in itself. There you can see the vast expanse of tea estates.

The rooms at The Wind are good and every room has a private balcony overlooking the valley. During the evening you can hear the cricket making its typical sound created by rubbing its wings. Early in the morning you can listen to a myriad birds chirping. You will wake up to that sound but will fall asleep again because that sound actually helps you to sleep. I stayed for three nights and four days and everyday I used to enjoy these fine gifts of nature. I even came across a rainbow one day when the sun came up just after a small spell of rain. You will feel that you are in a fairyland.

Well now coming back from the dreamland into reality. The rooms have all the modern amenities and the toilets are spotless clean. The service is also good. Food was delicious. We did not expect this kind of service and tasty food in such a far off corner of the world. The MD Mr. Noby Abraham also arranged our cars for sight seeing.

Overall our stay was good and memorable. I would like to recommend the Wind munnar.

Room Tip: All rooms are with view so you can choose any. There is one room though which has a good lawn. You c...

A really good stay experience with my family at The Wind. Was there on 20th June 2014 for the next 3 days. The location and the layout of THE WIND really gives a middle-of-nature feeling. The view from the resort location is just mind blowing and beyond any explanation..The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The staff members are also very courteous and well behaved. I liked the food served as well. Its really a worth for money to be in such a place away from all the nasty traffic and city congestion.

Would be better for the first time to get in to the location before it gets dark as it is an interior location and i dont think there are street lights for the full length from the main road. Heavy slopes leading to the resort, but the roads are not bad, except for the last 50 feet or so. But again for people like me who lives in the city, that 50 feet reassures a feeling that we are stepping out into a different world.

We had a very pleasant stay at The Wind Munnar when we visited on 12th of June. We were two couples and enjoyed a lot here.
Some of the key advantages of this property are as follows.
1. Location:- It is located some 25km away from the Munnar town; however this is the key fact that becomes the advantage of this property. It becomes a serene getaway from the city crowd. The cliff edge cottages are also designed to perfection giving a glimpse of the greenery that Munnar has to offer from the windows and balcony of your hotel room
2. Food and Service:- Although the staff required some time to service you; it was a well set expectation from the beginning and we ordered food a good hour in advance. The quality of food was very good and the food was served hot on the table.
3.Staff Behavior:- Very well trained staff and always had smile on their face. Catered to guest needs time and time again.
4. Transport Service:- Local transport was a little expensive as the place is located far away from town. But the restaurant has good tie-ups with the taxi service providers and were able to provide us vehicles for each of the days we went out for sight seeing.

Room Tip: Almost each of the rooms have a good cliff edge view; but would recommend 107 as it had both a balco...

We visited The wind munnar on 26th of May 2014 and stayed for three nights. We had taken cliff edge cottage. the rooms were spacious and toilets were clean. the room had excellent view of the hills and forest. The food was good. I recommend this hotel if you want to stay in a quiet place amidst nature. It is located 25 Kms from the city of Munnar and personal vehicle is must for this resort. Roads are good except last 1km from the resort. In the morning you will hear birds chirpin, nice breeze coming from your balcony and clouds all over. very nice quite place to stay with family. The hotel staff were helpful and courteous.

'The Wind' is truely what the name suggests, amidst breath-taking scenic views of the Munnar valley. The resort property is carved out on a cliff amidst spice plantations and provides excellent views, I would say the best in Munnar ranges. Imagine waking up with misty mountain & valley views right in front. Forget about the distance - if you are looking at spending quality time away from the hustle and bustle of crowded tourity places - in the midst of real nature, this is the place to be at. In summary - excellent property, well maintained, tasty food, great staff with personal attention, reasonably priced! Well done Mr Noby & staff.

Room Tip: All rooms provide great views by its unique location. Go for honeymoon suite if available.
