This is my third visit to Munnar and my second visit to Royal Retreat. This time I traveled with 3 friends. The hotel is 4 km from Munnar town, but it's easy to come to the city with autorichshaw.

Spent 4500/- per night for 2 nights in December 2013. Room is very ok for the price paid. Garden is good. Food not available as per the menu card. Breakfast menu not very elaborate. Staff is very courteous and helpful.

We spent 2 nights at the Royal Retreat paying 3000 rps per night. This did not represent value for money. The room was very average for the money, pillow cases were not clean and the sheets had other peoples hair on. The restaurant attached did not serve good food either, frankly the Indian food was bland and nothing like the... More

It is a nice hotel with a decent garden in the front. Also, it is located just outside the town. Away from the crowds and easy to get into Munnar downtown. Rooms were good and reasonably sized. The service was good. The camp fire costs extra. We saw few large insects (not dangerous) in the garden and it was amusing...

Located in the beginning of Munnar, along side river. Has couple of walking paths. The hotel is very comfortably located away from the hustle of Munnar yet very close to the town. The food quality is very good and the staff is very gentle. Mobile network not available in the rooms.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Royal Retreat is a 16 room private hotel built in 1988; it is located at Aluva -Munnar Road, and just a walk away from the Blossom gardens. What makes the hotel unique is its location unlike the hotels near and around Tea gardens, Royal Retreat is built like a set of cottages with an amazing garden in front, all major tourist attractions are only a stone throwaway. The feel is very cozy and personal. The hotel rooms are spacious with large windows, classic hardwood furniture and tasteful colors. Most rooms have temple view across our very popular garden adding to the sense of peace and tranquility you will experience here. The elegantly designed MULTI CUSINE RESTURANT which serves traditional, continental and Chinese cuisines has soothing interiors and a quiet ambiance, allowing you to enjoy your meal in peace and comfort ... more   less
