WEER (I feel tired to write the long name! ) is as picturesque as it appears in web photos. The so-called Standard rooms on first floor of the front building do not have integrated balconies and thus offer no view from within room unless removing curtains from the large window onlooking entrance over a common balcony. This totally compromises privacy of the room. Deluxe room do have a narrow balcony that is a prized possession during the stay. MakeMyTrippers beware, don't get lured by lower tariff of a standard room, as you would inevitably wish to graduate to a Deluxe one checking in a Standard one. Layout of standard rooms, though, are not bilaterally identical in layout. We were offered a cottage on a lower ground level because of a valve gland leakage in the first floor Standard room where we spent the first night. This cottage was excellent with a balcony onlooking the Viripara falls over the adjacent road through Letchmi tea estate. My only grudge with this cottage was its awkwardly placed commode (which lets your feet dangling in air! ) and absurdly placed toilet paper holder which creates a hole on your scalp without miss when you leave the toilet seat. I have my full sympathy with manager Mr. Anil Kumar who always wears a smile on his face despite having to run a facility at an awkward location against all odds. WEER might have to 'coax and cajole' the municipal authorities/politicians to smoothen the pothole-ridden 17 km stretch up to the Kallar-Mankulam junction where you happen to land the NH 49. The 25 km detour from Munnar centre is negatively overshadowing the otherwise enchanting beauty of WEER. I have seen people leaving pre-booked room to look for some place close to heart of Munnar. A drop to Munnar by autorickshaw will cost you Rs. 500. Cars are far more expensive. The Munnar sightseeing will cost you Rs. 2300 by car. The same trip will cost you Rs. 1200 by autorickshaw on a kilometre basis (Rs. 9 per km). Avoid visiting Top Station in a foggy day as you will see nothing at that view point. This will cut 14 km from the trip. I did not do the Jeep safari and hence cannot comment on its content and quality. Do visit the Berijam lake, Kundala lake and, if possible, the beautiful Anaierangal lake on the way to Madurai. The last one is an wild elephant zone, so exercise caution. I loved this resort as it is loved by birds! The Hill myna, the red whiskered bulbul, scarlet minivet, purple-throated sunbird are few to mention from a long list of them; some exotic varieties of butterflies too are there. I don't know the names. The forest authorities should stop extorting the tourists of Rs. 20 fee at the Viripara falls, I don't know what their contribution is in 'maintaining' the falls at its own place for the tourists, however, the resort has nothing to do in this. Last but not the least, WEER should be off-limit to smokers. Owners, are you listening? Loud music and cigarette smoke must be kept at bay from an eco-friendly resort, strictly implementing this discipline even by a notice at the entrance, whatever harsh it may sound. I had to stop bird photography and leave the beautiful lawn twice just to avoid passive smoking from an idiotic guest. PS: Open the roof top for guests implementing well thought safety handrails/parapet walls (to discourage the suiciders), as they may offer some breathtaking views of the mountain/valley, esp for one's not having balconies with their rooms. Cut or aesthetically bend the unsightly steel rebars jutting out from the right edge of the building. Using uPVC plumbing fittings may prove beneficial with borewell water in the long run. Else switch to Essco/Jaquar for CP fittings. Use SS hoses for health faucets (Hindware/Watertec). Centralised water heating may be thought of with insulated CPVC piping for distribution. Think of using centralised LPG cylinder manifold and piped gas supply to LPG geysers installed at cottages. This will minimise the risk of having individual cylinders behind cottages.
Overall, my experience in this hotel was very good. As a destination, Munnar is an excellent place. It was conveniently located. Location wise, it was very good. Appearance of the hotel was excellent. Booking was done directly and it was excellent. Service and behaviour of the staff was excellent. They were very helpful and friendly. Room was clean and spacious and it was very good. TV, AC, refrigerator, and all amenities were available in the room. Food was available there and it was excellent. Activity part was very good. It was a relax kind of holiday. I went there with friends in May.
It was a excellent stay. It is a wonderful place with privacy, eco friendly, fresh air, organic food, very adventuress place. Food is very yummy specially Tribal food, cooked by Tribal people, vey home place to stay and as well food. Room is excellent with beautiful view and very spacious, well-trained staff with prompt service. I will suggest this place to most of my friends and would like to visit often to relax.
Must Stay. Totally recommended! Hotel is situated in a "Dream Location". While staying in this hotel you will get the real feel of Munnar. Hotel staff are extremely friendly and specially the owner. Owner and staff were so good that, they surprised us by creating bonfire specially for us. Resort is surrounded by tea garden, spice garden and waterfalls "A Paradise for travellers who are looking for adventure and peace at the same time". A perfect romantic destination also. There are two roads to Munnar city from this resort. You will get excellent "Photo Spot" on both the roads. Pros: 1. Location 2. Friendly staff 3. Living close to nature. 4. Jeep Safari 5. Trekking 6. Great food. 7. Excellent photographic spots. 8. Peaceful And Fresh Environment. Cons: 1. Difficult to reach. 2. Road to resort is not good. 3. Resort to Munnar - 15km 4. No mobile network available. 5. No telephone facility available in rooms also. 6. Flies in rooms (But its a part of nature) Advise: 1. Try to reach the place before sunset. 2. Contact the hotel staff and get the accurate location before reaching because its difficult to find this place. 3. Must carry BSNL SIM Card. 4. If you have problem with flies then must carry a repellent.
Far from the madding crowd, if you want to spent a weekend this is the right place. Wild Elephant Eco Friendly Resort is a quite an awesome place. I have no words to express the services offered by the Resort Manager Anil, who always enquires about your comfort during the stay. The boys who works from dawn to night have always a smiling face and ready to serve you. People who love nature, for them this resort will be a real heaven. From the hotel of you want you can go to the core tribal area to see how they live and you can experience the bamboo cooking style. You can hear the music of the night and looking at the sky in the night, watching the stars, hearing the sound of the birds in the morning you will feel that you are in another world. Once you visit the place you will eagerly wait for your next visit. Even though a little bit away from Munnar Town those who love nature and its beauty this is a wonderful place. Hats off to the management who have made this beautiful resort
