We passed a lovely couple days at 3 Elephants. Cherai Beach is quiet and beautiful and the attractive grounds provided a serene escape from the hustle and bustle typical in many parts of India. We enjoyed the clean and tastefully done room, though the mosquitos invaded our semi-outdoor shower. Some screening could improve the experience. I enjoyed practicing yoga with...

Arrived at 4pm. They told us there was an electrical problem in the room which will take one hour. In exchange they asked us to sit in the restaurant and have complimentary drinks and snacks. That was fine till 5pm. Didn't understand why they didn't inform on the phone earlier when they had my number. At 5pm, the room was...

Dear guest, We are very sorry about your disappointment and aknowledge that an electrical issue in your room has unfortunately delayed your check-in by about 2 hours.

We spent a wonderful 4 nights at this beautiful location, enjoying excellent service and food. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We were woken by a dawn chorus each morning from the wild life of the river and watched the fisherman at night working the chinese nets. The showers may not always have been hot, but you are...

We were traveling by road from Munnar to Cherai. Our driver didn't knew the way so we followed Google maps all...

The owners were very kind and helped us a lot. All the staff made our trip more pleasant and enjoyable. They are very helpful and cheerful. A small problem was mosquitoes, but the staff gave us some kind of cream, so it worked. The other small problem could be wi-fi which doesn't work in the room as well. The cleanliness...

I just spent 5 wonderful days & nights @ Les 3 Elephants, a lovely eco-resort comprised of 11 clean & artistically decorated thatched roof bungalows situated on the backwaters & an easy 200 meter walk to Cherai Beach. It is off the beaten path in a peaceful neighborhood. The grounds are nicely groomed w/ an abundance of tropical flowering plants...

Good location, walking distance to the beach and overlooking the backwaters. Perfect vacation spot for honeymooners and older couples. Need more activities with kids. Wish there was a swimming pool too, would have been perfect. Food needs more variety
