    Biswaaa's 8 days trip to Munnar

    It was a nice experience travelling with Travel triangle and Sai Arha Holidays. Rupali ji guided throughout the trip regarding payment and bookings etc . Similarly Mr. Sunil and Disha ji guided well and planned a beautiful experience. All the hotels were nice and above my expectations except the Houseboat which was dirty and poorly maintained. I have informed this at that moment to Sai Arha holidays and Sunil ji they tried their best but atlast only regretted and we acquired 1 bad memory regarding houseboat experience. Leaving that i would also thank Sunil ji for planning the trip so nicely. The cab driver Mr. M. Sebil was an excellent man guided us very nicely. 5 star for him . 5 star to Sunil ji for trying to arrange everything. But 4 stars to Sai Arha holidays for that 1 bad experience in Allepy houseboat. Best memory was the stay in Dew Drops resort . Excellent view in the lap of nature with excellent staffs and service . A must stay for all. And not to forget the Kovalam beaches...
