During the month of January 2017 I had been to Munnar and made my stay in Wild Elephant Eco Friendly Resort. It was my holiday trip with family. My travel destination was average. The hotel location was good with necessary available at the nearest. The appearance of the hotel was good because it is clean and neat. The staff at the reception was average. I booked my room through online. I would rate the services in the hotel were good because of availability of service. The hotel room was very good because of nice view and facilities. I would rate food as good because of taste and price is not high.
I went to Munnar with my wife during October, but it was very worst and terrible experience. We booked a cab for two days and started from Cochin around 9 in the morning. The road to destination was awesome with tea plantation around and reached Munnar around 5. We didn't know about hotel location, so I call at reception and asked for distance. They told me it was around 8 km before Munnar and road and all was good and easy to reach. Depending on his words, we took tickets for Traditional dance and martial art in Munnar. It ends at 8 and by then it was quite dark and had some rain outside. I called again to get confirmation on how to reach hotel now, and if we could come at this time. This guy without any hesitation said, yes you can come and its direct road. We started from Munnar and after 10 km or something, I called again to ask, where that was, and person at reception said, "Yes, you are going right, just continue straight on new road after right. We did the same and this was very horrible, there were no lights, no vehicles crossing by, heavy waterfall sound nearby, and it looks like road in between some forest. The worst happen after few minutes, [3-4 km I guess] when there were no signals coming to any of our mobiles. It was already 9 or more. There was no signboard, nothing and were in middle of forest where some waterfall was running alongside of road. After few minutes [few km as well] we thought of go back to Munnar as it looked dangerous and both of us were feeling risky to go deep in forest, but still needed to move forward as there was no space on road to reverse back. Then there seemed on very steep road on left side, and a board, we thought to check this also, as we are continuously looking at each and every board in between and this was our destination. WILD ELEPHANT RESORT. Now the big task was to drive cab to hotel parking, on this steep road. Our cab driver trying hard, but car was sliding backward always due to the rain or some mud on road, it not able to move up. I came out of car and shocked to see, that if it skid from the mode it may go in deep abyss. I asked my wife to come out and driver to just hold the brake and went to the hotel and asked staff to come and push from back. It took them 5-10 minutes, to arrange some staff that can help us. [Already frustrated a lot, and didn't want to fight now, as there seems no other option around 10/15 km]. Took our room key, went inside and what I saw was, very dim light with whole jungle look. Some rat / insect voice was coming don't know from where. Tired, so we prayed to God and went to sleep. Overall it was a very worst experience, and next morning I told reception as well that you should have told us not to come after 8, or arranged a cab to pick from Munnar, or at least told properly to driver how far hotel was. But they were very rude and didn't want to understand, as we already paid it online booking. Location of hotel was far away from Munnar, and I don't think one should choose this, as there are a lot of hotels in Munnar city and view was awesome everywhere in Munnar.
