Rooms are nothing special (the house seems pretty old and is up for some renovation) but it's spacious and definitely atmospheric. The place is located where the tea plantations start and makes for a welcome escape outside the (dirty) town. It's not cheap so I guess you also pay for the location. A cheap dinner is served every night for... More

We made a reservation three days before arriving in Munnar. We reserved the room on the phone and when we requested e-mail confirmation were told that written confirmation was not necessary. The morning of our arrival we decided to call to make sure we had a room and were told that there were no rooms available and given the phone... More

Stayed for one night, rooms where big, clean and cozy.. Just outside the room a nice small garden overlooking the green hills and mountains. We had a great home cooked dinner made by the owners, and they can provide you with beer, breakfast, tea, coffee and anything else you want to have. Just outside the gate of the guest house... More

We came to Zina cottage after spending one night at a cheaper place in town. Considering that most of the places with this kind of view in Munnar are much more expensive, zina is actually very well priced. Yes, the rooms are very basic, but comfortable enough and very spacious. They had hot water, toilet paper, soap and extra blankets... More

Set on a tea plantation this was a beautiful setting. The service was excellent and the food was great. We went on a 5hr hike with the gentleman who manages the place and it was good time. The room was quite spacious and clean. Hot is by the bucket but actually hot.

Such a beautiful place to stay, the best in Munnar. Set in old Munnar amongst the tea plantations making this place the perfect getaway. Me and my friend stayed longer then expected due to its serene and welcoming atmosphere. Valou was absolutely amazing, the perfect host! Helped him cook dinner on many nights! And if you want an honest opinion... More

Zina Cottage is clearly overrated by the Lonely Planet and sad enough they know it and definitely overcharge on the rooms. First impression was rather bad since our room (the cheapest) was very old-fashioned, damp and cold, quite dark, the windows didn't shut properly and it just didn't seem entirely clean. Fair enough the bathroom was newly decorated and we... More

Having read positive reviews about Zina Cottage on Trip Advisor and Lonely Planet, I decided to stay at Zina Cottage for a couple of days during my trip to Munnar. I'm so glad I did! Zina Cottage is located up in the hills, in the middle of a tea estate. With no signboards leading the way, it would be tricky... More

After 4 weeks in India, the cheapest and the simplest accommodation turned out to be the best one. Yes, only bucket shower, yes, only basic furniture. But after half a day of walking through spectacularly mountainous tea plantations (with or without guide from the hotel) and following trails of wild elephants, you sit in the evening on the terrasse surrounded...

We had problems finding accommodation in Munnar and came to Zina cottages as the lonely planet recommended this place for the hospitality. Upon arrival the youth who was permanently plugged into his earphones and seems to be running the place showed us to the rooms, and then disappeared. We had no idea where he went and where the reception was,... More
