Bracknell Forest, Munnar
P.B No. 43, Pothamedu, Bison Valley Road,, Munnar, Kerala 685612
This is one of the best places we ever visited, Honeymoon trip. This is the first place we are offered with as part of our package. We reached around 6:00 PM on 14th of February 2014. The moment we entered the Resort, wow its awesome climate, well gardening, the greenery and cool and calm place, we forgot all our journey tiredness. We are offered with an excellent room which we least expected, the real looks gives you more satisfaction that those in photographs. Very clean and neat arrangements. The facilities like the bed, a sofa set, a study table, dressing table, lockers, a very terrific balcony view with wooden chairs what not all are arranged well before we reached there and the washrooms are really hygienic. The forest look from balcony is too thrilling. The hot water facility and all the necessary aids we needed are arranged well before we reached the room. The staff are very polite and as and when we ordered something they have given us the quick response. The housekeeping services are good, they are genuine people we can trust them as even we forget some valuables they were safeguarded. Whenever we go out and come back they ensured the room is cleaned properly and we are quite comfortable with the services rendered. We are also offered with bed decoration though it is not the part of the package we chosen. The complementary breakfast and candle light dinner are really awesome. Honeymoon surprise gift is really thrilling, we are offered with strawberry ice cream in a half piece of pineapple as a bowl. Without an idea we ensured we brought all the things like shampoo, soaps, etc which remained untouched as the people itself offered all that are necessary to stay there. The Aroma of soaps and the quality of shampoos are good. Remember to carry bru instant sachets and sugar those who are coffee lovers. The improvement which this resort can bring up is that, as not like foreigners, we Indians prefer coffee/tea serving hot and strong. The people served us the bulk of coffee or tea with sugar pieces, I am not sure what exactly we call them they are like stones, when we try to stir it by the time they melt the coffee/tea becomes tasteless and cool, which we dint like. When we ordered for sugar they said they don't have it. Finally, one should definitely visit and experience the stay here in this resort once in a life time. I am feeling happy to share our experience.
From the moment we arrived, tired from a 8 hour road journey, we had wonderful service. Our room was large, clean and comfortable and had the most wonderful verandah overlooking the forest. We didn't appreciate how high we were until next morning, above the clouds! The sounds of the forest and the cool air made for a wonderful nights sleep. Dinner was cooked to a pre-order which was a welcome idea as everything was hot, fresh and delicious. Breakfast was the same and both were presided over by the most attentive waiter "Jos". Our room was in the main building which I presume was once a beautiful house with an inner courtyard garden. It was enchanting and I would definitely stay here again.
