We came to know about this resort through the internet last year. While we were quite apprehensive about the way internet photos vs actual location/facilities are, we still took a call to give this resort a shot. Mr. Seetharaman who is one of the partners of this resort, spoke convincingly about the facilities this resort offers and the location of this resort. The resort is located 18 kms away from Munnar on the Mankulam Road, it was easy to locate the kallar route on NH49. The first look at the resort made us forget the long distance that we had to travel from Chennai. It was heaven on earth...really...looked as if we are on top of a hill surrounded by greenery all around and a beautiful waterfall straight opposite to the resort. There is a lovely swimming pool in this resort which adds to the beauty of the location..We stayed in the leaf cottage which had a lovely view of the valley and the waterfalls. Somehow, in this place, it rains almost everyday in the afternoons for a short while...the rooms are designed in a very artistic manner which gels with the nature around. The sight of insects, butterflies and flying lizards in the nights is an awesome treat to the eyes while chirping of the birds and the noise of the waterfall after a rainshower is a treat to the ears. The resort kitchen takes care of your tastebuds with delicious Kerala style food throughout the day. The staff were very friendly and we quite didnt feel like leaving the place after 3 days. Mr Ravi who takes care of the resort is quite a friendly person and is always available for any assistance.Mr Anil takes care of the guests by arranging for trekking, elephant sighting etc. We will go there atleast once in 6 months for sure...
