1. Large clean rooms, good enough for a family with 2 school going kids. 2. No/poor internet access in rooms. Available in dinning area 3. The 2-hour complimentary trek in cardamom plantation - till the river is very attractive and good. However, the guide - a makeshift guide cum local gardener - had very limited knowledge of local plants/trees. He... More

This was one of the coolest hotels I've ever stayed at. Unfortunately we didn't arrive until after dark and had to leave very early the next morning. The staff was so welcoming when we first arrived and greeted us with water and a warm towel. We pre-ordered dinner, which is nice so you don't have to worry about it later.... More

If your are planning to visit Munnar this place would be your definite choice. Don't miss the calmness and cleanliness of the Kaivalyam Retreat. Rooms were clean so were the tree houses. Food was more than excellent, best food we had during our trip. Mr. Harish is very humble and takes care of each and every guest personally by himself.... More

The experience from the first day has been very satisfying. Booked the room a month prior to arrival and been in touch with Mr. Harish over phone and... More

This is a lovely place and well deserving of all the excellent reviews. Our first night was in the treehouse, an experience not to be missed. Our remaining nights were in a room, which was the best we have stayed in during this trip. Staff are courteous, food is well prepared and versatile (could be a little spicier, but we... More
