We spent a wonderful two days at the wooden chalets at Stanmore bungalow. The property is atop a hill, the balcony overlooks the tea slopes, makes for some great views. We enjoyed the nature walks -- we spotted the elephant, bison, lion-tailed monkey, and lots of birds. The manager is a wildlife and photo enthusiast, gave us a lot of tips. Staff was young and eager, the food was superb with the right touch of homeliness. Will be back again.

We stayed at the tented cottage in Monica Bungalow. This is a very well managed property in the midst of nature. Staff are all amazing with great level of service. They will ensure you are taken care of. A special mention to Bhuvesh and Sateesh who ensured we had the best experience. They organised nature walks for us and as I am into birding; was well worth it to watch the different bird species in Valparai. The nature shouldn't be missed. Food is of excellent quality and chef Mahesh does an amazing job. Overall an excellent stay at Monica Bungalow. We will certainly come back.

What a treatment. Staffs are excellent. Food was so good. Limited menu but it was so tastey.Staff shows so courtesy to people who stay over there. They take you to river side and a morning walk through the jungle.

Excellent stay in the tents with good food and friendly staff.Nature walk through tea estates and birdwatching in and near the place ,night campfire ,all added to the charm.Covid protocols were followed and we had a great time.Lots of nilgiri langues,hornbills and a pack of bisons when we went for nature walk all were exciting.Hope we can stay for more days and get more time to explore the area.

We booked wooden suit and stayed for three nights in the month of March.2020. During our stay first day there are only three booking available, and food is not up to the mark. Later they asked for feedback, based on that from next day on-wards food was good. From second day we alone stayed there entire resort done service for us only without any hesitation.
River walk in the property is good one and due to low flow of the water we are allowed to take bath. It was a wonderful experience and kid enjoyed it a lot.
Edwin, Shiv and their team done wonderful job!

Suggestions:
1) Lighting in the ground floor of the wooden suite can be improved.
2) In the children's play area some snack and tea shop kind of thing can be set in the evening.
