Being our second visit to Munnar, we wanted to stay far from the maddening crow of the town. Munnar city centre is little crowded and concentrated. Hotels there are cheap but since we wanted so stay a little closer to nature so we chose hotel “Deshadan Mountain Resort” which is a little far from the city centre. Transportation is not an issue as the resort arranges for a pick up from Munnar Bus stop at an extra charge of Rs 500. The Resort is the highest resort in Munnar situated at a distance of 7 Km from the main town. The road to the resort is fairly good except for the last 1 KM stretch when the roads are pretty bad and steep.
We had taken a valley view room. The view from the room was breath taking but nothing else about the room was worth the amount of money that was paid. The rooms were very basic. The bed sheets were torn and even on repeated complaining they failed to provide us with proper bed sheets. The staff were pretty rude.
We were quite taken aback when we were informed that we would have to choose from the menu that had been set for buffet for the dinner. The options that were there for the buffet was pretty bad. The breakfast was even more let down. There was very less options to select from for breakfast.
We enquired about few local site seeing places around. They were unable to provide us with adequate information.
Over all the resort was a total let down. With the amount of money that is paid, it is definitely not worth a penny.
