A perfect get-away. A wonderfully designed building with a lovely view from the room. Spotless rooms with comfortable beds. Very enjoyable early morning yoga in a beautiful location. All activities were smoothly organised but we also enjoyed just sitting and playing games and enjoying the view. Food was wonderful and so generous. Staff were lovely and there was a varied... More

A look at the past reviews and you may nod and agree that this place is really a nice, friendly, peaceful and green property with a very humble owner who is ever ready to help and a cooperative staff who helps you in every thing. The Jeep and its driver were both efficient and made us feel awe of the... More

This place is absolutely beautiful - set on a tea plantation with a spice garden (you get a free tour), it feels calm and serene. Rooms are clean and spacious, great value for money. The best thing though, is the food. I don't normally like vegetarian food but the food here is incredible. It's varied, generous in portion size, cheap,... More

Kaivalyam is more for the health conscious and nature loving traveler. If you're staying here, you're in luck for food because this is the best place for food in Munnar. They do not serve non-vegetarian food. But this is not a problem - the food they served us was the best in our entire trip of the South - organic,... More

Kaivalyam is every bit as gorgeous as the reviews here suggest. It's a five star property nestled deep in the forest and is surrounded by spice gardens. Harish bhai and his entire staff looks after the property with utmost love and care and it shows in how the place blossoms. The views from the cottages are spectacular and we had... More
