Located far from the city

Posted 22 Jun, 2017

It was a holiday trip with my family members. We visited Munnar in the month of December 2016. We booked this hotel through a travel agency. The destination was a nice place. We like the tea garden in Munnar. The hotel was located far from the city and situated in the forest. The interior and exterior appearance of the hotel was just ok. The service staffs were provided all the service for us. The reception staff was not cooperative and customer friendly. The rooms allotted were not well maintained. The basic facilities were provided in the room. The geyser was not provided in the bathroom. The food was not good in this hotel. Other fun activities were not available in this hotel. The pick and drop facility was available in this hotel. It was very nice.

We visited Munnar in the month of December 2016. It was a holiday trip with my family. We booked this hotel through a travel agency. The destination was a good place. The interior and exterior appearance of the hotel was attractive with the woods and greenery surrounding. The hotel was located on the top of a hill. We enjoyed a beautiful nature view from the location. The allotted room was well cleaned and well organized. The bed was clean but not comfortable. The bathroom was clean. The basic amenities were provided in the room but they were old and not proper. The lift facility was not available at this hotel. The reception staff was polite and cordial. They were helped to do check in and check out process. the service staffs were provided all needs on time. They were cooperative. We had food from the hotel it was not tasty because it was like north Indian food. The complimentary breakfast was available in this hotel. The cab facility and pick and drop facility was not there.

Hotel location was excellent

Posted 2 Feb, 2016

The hotel location was excellent. It was at a height. There was no difficulty in locating the hotel. The hotel surroundings were good. The hotel looked quite decent from internal as well as external. The hotel staffs were helpful and cooperative. The staffs at the reception were quite good and welcomed the guests with respect. The check in and checkout process was done on time. There was no delay in the same. The staffs were very prompt in providing service on time. The room was comfortable and had a cosy ambiance. The basic amenities like AC, TV in the room were working well and geyser was not provided in the room. I had to ask for hot water in the room. The housekeeping staff did its job well and regularly cleaned the room. The bed sheets, linens were changed and cleaned by the housekeeping staff. The vegetarian food was provided in the hotel. The food taste and the quality had no issues. It was reasonably priced. The room service was quick. Some activities could be provided by the hotel. There was a garden view from the room. The interior of the hotel needs improvement. I had been for a cultural dance and shopping. The food quality and taste needs more improvement. It was a relaxation trip. I had visited with my family. I would recommend this hotel to other travellers.

Good hotel but activities were average

Posted 12 Dec, 2014

The hotel was conveniently located I did not face any problem in reaching. The service of the staff was good and friendly. Both the internal and external appearance was very good looking. The room given to me was spacious, neat, clean and well maintained. All the amenities were well placed and it was working properly. There were some indoor and outdoor games it was not good especially table tennis was worse. The food was good with more varieties of menu. They arranged sightseeing trip for me. The stay was worthy and recommendable for other travellers.

I was planning for a honey moon location, so my fr...

Posted 18 Mar, 2006

I was planning for a honey moon location, so my friends suggested me Munnar was the place to go in the month of Jan-Feb, after lot of searching on the web came aross some resorts which were matching to my taste( Truly I wanted to make the stay ever remembered for my wife and me) Initially I had selected Strling Resorts in Munnar (which is 21 kms from Munnar City) but I couldnt get a Suit booked since it was season that thime. I wanted a resort which was away from city but still near (convienient to go to city) So I selected The Forest Heaven Resort. After lot of information gathering about Forest Heaven which is situated in kallar (about 12 kms from Munnar). I found the rents affordable and above all the resort is surrounded by cardomom plantations, a river flowing next to the resort, a natural Swiming pool. I booked the resort for 4 days and 5 nights for a couple after lot of phone calls and e mails. When We reached their the Manager was kind enough to allocate us the best room available with three gallaries to view the forest from 3 sides (I had requested him to make the stay memorable). The food was great ( on the first day they prepared the food with coconut oil which we didnt like) but after that the food was 100% according to our preference (food was totally customized dont know if they do it for every one) On the third day the manager arraiged for a safari, the travel was great but we could not see any animals, but my wife really enjoyed the trip since she is very fond of different kinds of herbs and plants which she was asking the guide cum driver. On the forth day he arrainged a trip around munnar and tourist points this time he had arrainged for a maruti 800 but on incistance to get a indica he oblidged ( I assumed the roads to be rough in the mountain terrain). The guide cum driver was again informative we came back late night had a good food and relaxed. Next day we left for Cochin from their to Bangalore

Abode in Forest in Green Country

Posted 3 Jul, 2015

Hotel is located really in a jungle. Has access to a natural pool. Decent open space around the hotel with a small shuttle court. There is a sports room too which we did not use. Food is served. All items were good except curd which was too sour. We were 7 from two families. We had to shift from one of the rooms due to stink. Service was good. Telecom signal is very weak for most of the operators. Don't expect a reliable net connection. One of the days morning we went for a trek well guided by the hotel person. We enjoyed our stay except while checking out when they refused accept credit card. It delayed out departure by couple of hours which affected rest of the plans for that day. Munnar is a great place for a holiday; I have not seen so much greenery anywhere else in India. Weather was not very cold during May. The place was very good, hotel is OK. Make sure your payment mode with the hotel, while booking itself.
