Anil and Jeeva are the most wonderful hosts. We left feeling like we had met two very special people. Truly, they made our stay exceptional, from the moment we arrived. Anil took us on a walking tour which was great to familiarise ourselves with the local area and his knowledge on the plantations.They also helped us plan our itinerary which... More

Anil and Jeeva were friendly and helpful from the minute we got in touch. They arranged for someone to pick us up from our previous homestay, which was 6 hours away on the coast, and welcomed us with tea and biscuits upon arrival, followed by an informative walk through the beautiful local surroundings. The rooms are quiet, peaceful, clean and... More

We changed our booking in Munnar at the last minute, based on the great reviews given here and it was definitely the right thing to do! Anil and Jeeva are very warm, friendly people and after 3 days with them, we felt like we had known them for years. From a guided walk around the cardamom plants and the tea... More

For starters, Anil and Jeeva are extremely warm, hospitable, and accommodating hosts. We were offered tea upon our arrival, followed by a splendid short trek (about an hour) through the tea farms which was just right after having ridden for 5 hours in a car. Anil was very knowledgable about spices, tea, and coffee beans. Rooms are very clean and... More

It seems you will not find anyone here without a big smile on their face - Jeeva, Anil, their daughter, their housekeeper Alphonsa... Even their dog Ricky (well obviously he is not able to smile but he will surely let you know, that he is more than excited to see you ;-). During your entire stay here you will never... More

The most alluring part of staying here is the amazing hospitality of the hosts, Anil and Jeeva. Anil helps in setting up experiences for the day and will set up guides and transportation simply to help out. The day long trek into the surrounding mountains is amazing and highly recommended. Jeeva takes care of gastronomic stuff and renders wonderful breakfasts,... More

Right from our arrival we were made to feel completely welcome and at home. We were even given a walking tour of the local area! The homestay is very well looked after with all rooms being very well maintained, clean and tidy. The evening dinner was also lovely, especially when sitting on the balcony enjoying the cool evening air. Overall... More

Anil and Jeeva are great hosts. They're so friendly and helpful and they've cultivated relationships with drivers and guides to help their guests have the best possible experience. They helped us to arrange cars both too and from Munnar as well as a trek with spectacular views and no other walkers! They were the first homestay we experienced that catered... More

This homestay was recommended to us by our friends, and I can see why. It was a great place to visit the sight of Munnar from and Anil and Jeeva were really helpful in suggesting places to go to, and the best ways to visit them. They also helped us with hiring drivers, which we really appreciated.

It's hard to imagine something better than seeing Anil and Jeeva's smiling faces and the rolling hills of Munnar after 24 hours of travel! The Royal Mist was our first stop on a 2 week trip around southwestern India, and it was the perfect setting to get adjusted. Other reviewers have mentioned the amenities: plantation walks, water, food, clean and... More
