"Hot water facility was provided"

Posted 8 months ago

The hotel was located conveniently. It was located a bit far from the city. There was no shopping mall or temple nearby the hotel. I had travelled to the hotel by own car. The appearance of the hotel was outstanding. I didn’t have any delay in check in and checkout. I was happy with the room assigned to me. Mountain View was visible from my room. They used to regularly clean the room. The bathroom was neat and clean. Hot water facility was provided for 24 hours. I had taken the food from the hotel itself. The quality of the food was good. Price was reasonable for food. The hotel had not provided any kind of activities. I had stayed there with my wife. I would like to recommend this hotel to my friends and colleagues. The money spent to the hotel was worth. I don’t have any suggestion for the hotel.

"Ok property surrounded by Tea Estate "

Posted 10 months ago

Nice place surrounded by Tea Estate. Property was ok but food wasn't good. The staff were courteous. The waterfall view was a big hype at least in Jan. Due to dry season the waterfall was almost not existent. But it was away from the main city, hence was quite peaceful.

"Waterfalls view from room"

Posted 1 year ago

I pre-booked rooms. I had no problem in check in check out. Staffs were friendly, helpful, quick and attentive to our entire request. Required amenities were provided to my room in working condition. I had waterfalls view from my room. Complimentary breakfast was served. No sightseeing trip was arranged by hotel. It was value for money.

"Pleasant stay, staff was extremely courteous."

Posted 3 years ago

The target was a hill station and that has to be Munnar. It was a long lost plan and after almost 4 year of belated planning, the chance finally came for us to visit Munnar. I was fortunate enough to get the reference of this resort from some other hotel, which eventually was not available. Hence, we were little skeptical about the stay but with a lots of confusion in my mind, I started following up and researched the reviews on this resort, which were better than average in the online archives. I called them up and enquired. They were pleasant enough to speak in detail with patience and there were not a single call from me which got unanswered. The first experience was good. So, I decided to book one of the home stay in the resort for my family. Since our trip was an extremely planned and strategized one, I had a series of conversations with their staff to understand the minute details of Munnar make the trip really a worthy one. After all, it was a 3 day and two nights visit and every minute was necessary to be spent with a value in return. The hotel staff helped us in getting whatever information they could get for us regarding sightseeing, places, locations, facilities, travel info and all those was nice much before even landing in the place. We reached Munnar by train on 24th January early morning and there was the driver waiting for us - I could not understand how he could recognize us even though we were meeting the very first time. He drove us pleasantly through the "gods own country" for over 3 hours and stopped 3 places for sight-seeing near beautiful waterfalls. The water falls' beauty took away all the tiredness from us. And, then we landed in the 'Heaven' of Munnar - The Aranyaka Resorts. It was a set of nicely drawn scenic series of houses separated from each other with lots of landscape and we grabbed the one booked for us. My kid was busy on the massage chair and I along with my wife just roamed around. There were sceneries all over the place. In fact, if you just walk as little as 100 mts from the home stay, you can sight the extreme beautiful water fall just a little farther from within the tea garden and, believe me, we 3 of us were staying in that beautiful place - me, my wife and the nature. You cannot think anything beyond that - just imagine and experience it out when you be there. The hotel staff was extremely courteous and arranged daily sightseeing trips on a taxi for us and we could visit more than expected and more than the desired place of visit to remote areas. The guidance of the driver called 'Ganesh' and his knowledge on the sights was A+. Moreover, it was a marvellous trip and all that was because of the hospitality provided by the Aranyaka Resorts staff and owners. I recommend couples, family and even bachelors to visit the place and enjoy their trip to Munnar anytime they prefer. The following advice would be handy when you are in Munnar though (which obviously the resorts' staff would explain you during your trips): 1. Avoid visiting the gardens with various types of trees - it's a waste of time. 2. Avoid taking trips from local travels - prefer the ones from hotel - they know it better and will be helpful as guides as well. 3. No need to take any other guides 4. Visit for "Kalaripayattu" - the kerala martial arts - that will be mind boggling 5. Do not eat too much while travelling in taxi - because of the up and down route in mountains, you may feel sick. 6. Last but not the least; enjoy the walk for a while on the curvy roads, if you travel during Jan/Feb, which could be a pleasant time to visit. 7. If you want to experience the mist, then you could visit there just after the rains and before the winter. Well, I wish there is another chance for my entire family to visit there again and, this time, I would take my friends and other family members along with me. We would stay there for some more days and enjoy the hospitality of the locals out there. Do a bit of trekking and cycling. We would like to visit there during the winter and get lost within the heavenly mists all around the hill station.

"Excellent location with beautiful greenery"

Posted 2 years ago

Complimentary breakfast with buffet was served with more varieties, the quality and taste of the food was excellent and they provided north, south Indian and Kerala food varieties with ice cream. Conveniently located with good hospitality. There were 3 types of rooms, which was I stayed room tariff was around Rs. 2200 per day and room was spacious, neat and well maintained with good working basic amenities. It was located in a beautiful location with pleasant near to the waterfalls and hotel surrounded by tea estate. Staff were good, polite, professional and very caring and cooperative. I went here with friends for relaxation in September 2014 and my native place is Erode. There were activities like campfire and they arranged a vehicle for sightseeing places with a guide and they are given a map for sightseeing places in Munnar. There was no proper road to this place, it was inconvenient, so they should have main road facility. The hotel room tariff was value for money and it was recommendable to others.

"Best Location"

Posted 5 years ago

Best Location .Can hear the sizzlling Waterfall whole night though 1 km away but seen from the room. Good Breakfast but poor quality North Indian Food -need to improve on that Rooms classic , neat and well furnished with good location giving privacy to couples and Fun to families with every 2 rooms attached . One should prefer only ARYANAKA .Not advisable for those who do not have their own vehicle.

"Wonderful stay, average room size, good food"

Posted 3 years ago

We had stayed at Aranyaka homestay a part of Aranyaka resorts. It is a 2 mins walk from the resort. It's very spacious has a separate dining area with a big size dining table. The living room is also big and spacious. Both the bedrooms are of average size with attached bathroom. The view outside is exceptional. At times you find yourself among the mist. But has a few drawback as it is not as par to the resort, doesn't appear to be a part of the Aranyaka resort. Secondly they lack security there. You are all alone out there among the trees and valley. There is a waterfall just opposite to the resort and can also be seen from the dining area, it's very pleasant to watch. The food is good and the dining area is also clean and well maintained. There is still some construction work going on inside. The resort some new apartments coming up. May be they will come up with some new upgrades. All in all a nice and wonderful stay.
