Noort Giri farm house,Resort and restuarant Munnar Reviews
Besides Munnar Apr 17, 2015
The Noor Giri Farm house, resort and restaurant is perched on a hill top with a wonderful view of the misty mountains on three sides and an estuary on its one other side.Traveling from Madurai to Munnar this resort is just a few kilometres before you reach Munnar.As it offered a restuarant service we stopped over for lunch and found service to be in a formal homely manner.The menu had many varieties of rice,Indian breads, curry in both vegetarean and non vegetarean culinary.The water served was free but brown in color and warm.I was alarmed at the color but was told that it is so because it was brewed with indian herbs which was good for the body in cold and wet weather conditions.I drank a good portion of it and it truly was soothening.
Apart from the restuarant the place had basic yet decent lodging facilities and the rates where cheap when compared to the Hotels and lodges in Munnar town.This could be because Kundalay is a 20 minute drive from Munnar.Nevertheless this place has a quite and serene feeling.The staff were well mannered and I had no qualms with their service as they were fluent in Tamil, Malayalam and English.The rooms were basic yet tidy.Checking around I noticed the Lake behind the lodge to be clean and opaque.It was called the trout lake maybe it is because it has many trouts but unfortunately no fishing is permitted.The Jungle beside the resort is said to have elephants and bisons which the staff said they would show if they are around during night times.Trekking is permitted during day with a staff to guide you in a forest trail beside the lake side of the Hotel.Taxi or Auto service for a fee, is arranged by the staff to help you visit the important sights in Munnar and nearby.
Overall it is a quite a place for those who like budget stays and advisable to only those who have their own means of transport or those who don't mind spending a few more bucks on travel expenses yet on the bargain purchasing peace and quite by being away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy town.
