Deshadan Mountain Resort

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed two nights here. As advertised, the views from room are nice. The balcony opens to a mountain (stay in the rooms on top floor). You will see the sunset clearly, the rooms face west. Balcony was spacious, has comfortable chairs to enjoy the view, listen to the chirping of birds while sipping a cup of hot tea. Rest of the room and facilities were okay, they are a bit old and have had their glory days. Rooms have a fan. It is better to get into resort by 6PM max.. Road is difficult and narrow. There is nothing nearby, so plan for dinner in the resort. We ordered dinner both days and liked the taste. Try the malabar biriyani! The management told us the road will be fixed in the next few months. I really hope they do it soon, this is the only grey part of an otherwise awesome resort.

Spacious rooms with beautiful view. The resort is on top of the mountain. Delicious food at the restaurant and a separate recreational activity room. Mr. Lalu was very nice and helpful. Helped arrange our day trips and packed us sandwiches during our kodokkumalai visit. Mr. Abhilash, Nobin and other people of the staff were also very nice. WiFi was unstable and spring mattresses in the rooms were little uncomfortable. Everything else was great

I visited this property on Feb 20th 2018 with my family. We had occupied two rooms. Few things which Deshadan staff are not trained on or could not handle. 1) Check-in time delayed by 45 minutes. They made us to wait providing reason that they are getting the rooms ready. But both rooms had bad smell in it. After making us wait for almost an hour we did not expect this response from them. 2) Bathrooms are very smelly, drainage clogged and water was over flowing inside. Staff did not fix it and mentioned the entire property is filled and we are running out of staff as of now and chucked the matter. 3) Cockroaches in plenty inside bathroom 4) No power supply!! only in our building in the afternoon as mentioned by staff. Almost 2hrs without power in high temperature afternoon !! 5) Rooms - 101, 102, 1043 and 201, 202 and 203 should be avoided. These rooms are in single building and very old. Not well maintained. More over it is right above the kitchen which is not sound proofed. Very noisy entire stay. What ever cooked in the kitchen had to be smelled by customers !! Just not done..... 6) Parking lot has lot of local drivers who dont care about customer vehicles. They damaged my car when it was parked inside hotel premises. Hotel staff saw this and they did not do anything saying all these drivers come from local union and we also dont like to talk to them. Holidays are meant to make good memories......!!! If in Munnar, better avoid this property if you want to have a good holiday. As marketed by Deshadun management, this property is in good location but very bad maintenance and rude staff. Visit at you OWN RISK

We spent 2 nights here; the resort is very beautiful . It has 02 Bed room cottages and rooms which made it a quiet and calm stay. No need to have air conditioned rooms since the climate is always cool and perfect to enjoy. The resort is considered as the highest resort in Munnar. View from the rooms was really amazing. All the staff provided great service and was very attentive to our needs. The rooms are very spacious. The restaurant catered to our various diet needs very well. The food was delicious. The manager is extremely helpful in organizing small tracking to the mountain We would definitely recommend staying in this resort.

The resort is nice. Highest resort in south India - as claimed by the hotel. Pros: Nice view because of its height. Room size is OK. Cons: The size of bed is small and overall uncomfortable. Breakfast is just fine and overall restaurant taste is OK.

Had booked this hotel through MMT from 12th Feb to 14th Feb. My booking was confirmed. Just day before check-in hotel management called me up to inform that they won't be able to accommodate me due to some maintenance issue. It was unusual as MMT was not aware of it. I called up MMT regarding the same and till the last moment my booking was confirmed as per MMT. When I reached the hotel for check-in, hotel management was not ready to show the room which had leakage issue and instead they were offering alternate accommodation in some other hotel. While I was on property I asked one of the hotel staff about leakage issue and he denied of knowing such issue. Truth is hotel management had given all rooms to foreign guest ( at very high price) and deliberately canceled my booking and tried to shift me to other hotel without informing MMT. After multiple follow up and calls MMT gave me some alternate accommodation. It was a horrible experience.

This is the highest resort in Munnar and the view from here is quite magnificent. Rooms are ok types but Excellent staff makes it for this. Food here is awesome and staff is very friendly. We stayed in mountain view room.

Situated at the peak of the mountain range, Deshadan provides the best view of the entire valley. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. With enough area around the hotel property, it is an ideal option for family and couples. Sitting in the balcony, sipping a cup of tea, you can watch the clouds keep the mountain range on it's toe; playing peak-a-boo every other minute. We visited Munnar in the first week of July, last year. It was misty all throughout with drizzle coming down in the evening. Not that we couldn't step out of our room. But the experience was one to be relished. Coming back after visiting the well-known places of Munnar, we sat in the balcony. Having ordered some hot cup of cardamom tea, french fries, and chicken roast, it felt like being on the top of the world. One of the best properties of Munnar, with extremely warm and cordial hotel staffs. Deshadan, I will visit you soon.

Me and my wife was on New Year celebration trip to Munnar and booked DESHADAN resort for stay. On the way we met with major accident and I called to the resort for help and it was Mr. Abhilash manager of Deshadan resort who came like God's angel to us and helped upto the last we stayed in the resort. Staff, cleanliness, food quality is superb over there and very well organized and maintained. If you are planning for Munnar - DESHADAN RESORT should be your destination.

I stayed with my family on a vacation and took my elderly parents as well. We had a great time at Deshadan. We stayed in Family Cottage room - C1 with two bed rooms, living room which was spacious with dining area and a balcony. Here are the pros and cons(off course very few) that goes with our stay - PROS - 1. Location was too good, we feel like being on the top of the world. Especially early in the morning that freshness in the air along with chillness with birds crippling sounds makes you feel so fresh and rejuvenated. 2. Rooms were neatly maintained and they changed all towels, toiletaries and do full house keeping every day. 3. Kids have good amount of activities to keep them engaged and the hotel staff were courteous in allowing the kids to feed carrot to rabbits grown up there in the resort. 4. Food was very tasty and moderately spicy which makes us completely satisfied suiting to the needs of my elderly parents and kids as well, more importantly served hot despite of the chill weather outside. Even the morning buffet breakfast was good enough and sufficient for our needs. We dinned mostly in the resort itself since we were comfortable with the food options available in the resort. 5. Resort staff were very courteous and helpful. Mr. Gokul personally took care of all our requirements and was very friendly in taking care of us during our complete duration of our stay. CONS - I would call it as scope of improvements 1. The location is at a high altitude and little away from the city so more sign boards en-route to the resort would help travelers reach there even more comfortably. We struggled during the last leg our of journey despite of reaching close to the resort since the sign board in the road was facing the other direction of the road we missed noticing it, ending up roaming in search of the resort for 20 minutes. 2. Resort contact numbers present in Go-IBOBO site was that of the corporate office in Kochi and calls were not answered during our date of travel since it was a Sunday. Usually the resort coordinators used to contact the guests a day before or on the boarding date to check on our arrival time, food and travel requirements, but unfortunately we never received a call from the resort till we arrive at the resort. 3. For the Al-Carte food ordered in the restuarant, they took a lot to time to deliver which is close to an hour, even though they prepare it fresh and mentioned about the time taken for preparation in the menu card, but still close to an hour is something that needs to be looked upon to bring it down to 30 minutes. Moreover the orders taken through room service were misplaced with other room orders a couple of times during our stay(but got them corrected within a short duration), this can be taken care in a better way.
