Editor's Review

The Ela Ecoland Nature Retreat is at a calm and peaceful location with waterfalls, lakes and plantations in the property. It is perfectly suitable for nature lovers. There are very few rooms available in the retreat. The tree house is the highlight about the retreat. The views are great from the tree house. None of the modern amenities like internet, TV or room service are available. So you cannot expect top-class services and ambience. But there are some nice activities that are provided to the guests.


  • The environment is perfect for nature lovers with waterfalls and lakes.
  • Extremely quiet and peaceful.
  • Amazing tree house experience.
  • Interesting nature-related activities.


  • None of the modern amenities are available.
  • Very far away from the main town area.
  • The ambience of the retreat is not great.
  • Mobile network has very poor connectivity.
  • You cannot expect luxury. No room service either.

Detailed Info

Ela Ecoland Nature Retreat has a beautiful property which provides the ultimate connection with nature. The name Ela Ecoland literally means cardamom ecosystem enriched with flora and fauna. The retreat is built amidst coffee and cardamom plantations on a hillock. The accommodation in the retreat is available in three room types which are two luxury tents, a tree house and a two bedroom rock house. The restaurant in the retreat is called "Mannu". There are quite a few activities available for the guests.

The nature retreat offers nature oriented accommodation facilities. It is not luxury or comfort that make the retreat great, but it is the location and the nature-related activities. The property has beautiful waterfalls, majestic tress and natural water resources. In a sense, Ela Ecoland can be compared to a nature reserve in Munnar. The retreat provides very basic accommodation but promises to get you close to mother nature.
