We booked a deluxe room but they upgraded to super deluxe as deluxe was not available at that point of time. Excellent view from room. Staff was good. Breakfast was ok. WiFi does not work. Resort situated around 8 km far from city centre so it has its own pros n cons. Overall it was a pleasant stay.

Good view with nice services. Food is also good. But you will not find any place near to hotel to roam around.
Rest everything was perfect. Booked through package. Rooms also perfect.

Location is the best. You can see fog, waterfall, tea garden, mountain from your balcony. Hotel staff is good and food preparation was excellent. A value for money. Check-in/out timings are very late 12 noon, it spoils our one day after check-in. They should make it little early around 10 am.

I had been to Munnar with my wife and we stayed for 2 nights in Aranyaka Resort. The location for this resort is a big plus with lush green mountains in front and a big waterfall. It's a treat to your eyes. You can chill out in the balcony for hours. We booked the delux rooms. They also have cottages but view is not good from it. Service was excellent, food was awesome. They don't have much of activities. Parking space for car was cramped. They could have made more proper arrangements for parking the cars. Overall a very good place and recommended. It's 5-6 km away from Munnar main town, calm and quiet.

Aranyaka is one of the best hotels I have stayed in by far. It is exactly as advertised in the photographs. Amidst the Pallivasal tea estate and flanked by mountains with a superb view of the Attukad waterfalls this is heaven on earth.

The way the valley fills up with mist every evening adds to the brownie points of this place.

We walked through the tea estate to the waterfalls one evening and that was probably the best shorted hike I have had in a long time.

The hotel itself is well maintained and has a superb service staff. I cannot say enough about the hardworking and efficient staff and the amazing soft spoken manager. They are gems!

We stayed in the new building and were a bit disappointed when we did not get the cottages. But fret not, the new building is as good as the cottages. In fact I would say the view is better as they are located higher and give a very pristine view of the cottages themselves.

The restaurant food was good and served in rooms as well as the restaurant.

I will not deviate from my 5 rating in spite of the Chinese food that we ordered not being up to the mark because come on, who orders chinese food in Munnar!

The breakfast itself was basic and good, and I think the service that we get here is enough to overlook any small issues that you could see. For example - I would have liked it if they served some typical Kerala food here.

The location of the hotel is a bit away from the main town of Munnar but that is the best because who would want the hustle and bustle of the town when you could have this!

I have recommended this resort to all my friends and would continue to do so.

Thanks a lot Aranyaka. My first 5 star rating goes to you.

PS: There is absolutely zero network here. So be ready to go off the grid!

Everything is positive about this resort. Be it location, service, room, attention paid, staff behavior etc. , Had comfortable stay. Resort is overlooking Attukal Falls. Room was neat and clean. One suggestion would be to provide better amenities to drivers.

Location is good and WiFi is very poor in some rooms. Dinner was horrible. Breakfast was good. Hospitality was poor. They charge extra if we pay via card, cash is preferred there. Their chefs should learn how to make chocolate shake.

I had visited the hotel along with my family for holiday trip. There were no activities in the hotel. The hotel was value for money. Overall I was satisfied with the hotel stay. There was no delay in check in and checkout procedure. The room was spacious, clean and well maintained. TV, AC, geyser and other basic facility were provided in the room. There was beautiful view of water fall from the room. Wi-Fi facility was provided only in the reception area. There was very poor network coverage in the room. I would like to recommend the hotel to other travellers. The hotel was located near to the city. I would suggest the hotelier to improve the room.
