The service provided in the hotel were good. The food was good with breakfast was complimentary. We didn’t ask for sightseeing and we arranged our vehicle for a sightseeing trip. My overall experience in this hotel was good.

"Good stay and good facilities"

Posted 17 May

I went to Munnar during the month of February 2017 and booked the rooms in the Deshadan Mountain Resort. It was my holiday trip with couple. The city Munnar was average. My hotel location was good as number of options for shopping is more. The appearance of the hotel was very good as it is very hygienic. I would rate the front desk staff as average. I booked this room directly at hotel. The house keeping services were average since it is for limited time. Rooms which we stayed in were very good because of available facilities. The food which was served in the hotel was good, we can have a large menu of items.

"Hotel was convenient to reach"

Posted 16 Dec, 2016

The hotel was convenient for me to locate. In the month of December I had visited this hotel. The hotel had a good view. Services were not that helpful. Parking area was not that spacious but was fine. Rooms were average at condition. No Wi-Fi provided to me in the room. This hotel is recommendable if people insist.

"Another fabulous resort we (my hubby & I) delighte..."

Posted 18 Oct, 2012

Another fabulous resort we (my hubby & I) delighted is Deshadan, Munnar... Wow what a beautiful resort. I was suggested about this resort by friend who went there for their second honeymoon... we chose this place for our honeymoon (Nov 2008)... This is the highest resort in Munnar... All the aspects like place/destination, ambiance, climate, room, room service/housekeeping, food served, view from the hotel room everything was excellent... They had lot of activities like campfire, indoor games, trekking, sightseeing and many more... Since we went for our honeymoon ;) we did not opt for any of these, we just went around the place by ourselves... So I don't know how all these activities are arranged and managed by them... That is why I didn't want to rate the activities as excellent with out experiencing the same... I hope it should be very good, as I found all the other facilities were excellent.. :)... In fact, booking was also very simple, everything I was able to do sitting at home and sending some mails and doing an online payment and get their conformation mail... I would in fact suggest / vote this as an excellent, medium budget destination for honeymoon... :)

"Good service & good view"

Posted 4 Jan, 2016

This facility is one of the best places I have been to in my recent times in South India Hill stations. Highlights : 1. The altitude of the resort is the most exciting factor to stay in this facility. 2. The ghat road to this facility will be steep and at the same time terrifying but anyways it is safe. 3. The view from the rooms will be splendid. The balcony door opens to welcome you to the lush green and thick Munnar Forest with tall trees and the valley view. 4. Food, indoor and outdoor play area was really interesting. 5. Good service altogether. I would rate 8. 5 / 10 for this resort. It's definitely a must stay place in Munnar. Would be loved by people who enjoys nature serenity and those who likes to come out of the concrete jungle. Mobile tower signals were feeble but that should not be a problem at all for people who seeks a break from the routine. I stayed from April 25th to 28th 2014.

"Deshadan Mountain Resorts is situated in Pothamedu..."

Posted 7 Jul, 2010

Deshadan Mountain Resorts is situated in Pothamedu, 8kms from Munnar. It happens to be the highest mountain resort of Kerela (some say in India) and offers magnificent view of the valley and mountains. Beautifully designed Cottages (1 Bedroom) and Double bedrooms offer great comfort and the gallery overlooks the pristine surroundings of Munnar.

"Good hotel & located at the heart of the city "

Posted 23 Mar, 2016

The standard is what you pay for and the service is the best! It is close to many of the tourist spots. Very good location sunrise and sunset from balcony was surprisingly fantastic plus you are at highest height of mountain from there, we minutely observed the notorious nature, feel the blowing wind. We can simply open the curtains to watch the crazy madness of Munnar. Candle light dinner we especially remember. Staff are very helpful. The food, breakfast are good, there is a chance to improved quantity and quality of the food.

"Nature lovers paradise "

Posted 28 Jan, 2016

Pretty high in location, gives some amazing views from the rooms and totally away from the dust and noise of the city! Though spent relatively less time, enjoyed the place immensely. Witnessed a late full moon rise, went trekking further up the hill, which turns into grasslands and could view Munnar town from the summit and enjoyed the sunrise too. An excellent place for birding, still unexplored. Friendly staff and decent food with the dining hall facing the valley. Clean sheets and rooms are the positives. The climb up hill is very steep and narrow and needs some expertise from drivers. Also, some management of vehicles with walkie-talkie or a parking lot at the base with pick up facility will add to the safety. Though the food was not spectacular, it was not bad either. Not a place for city slicker, who wants all the facilities in one place.
