We stayed at the retreat with 2 families with children in April. The view from this resort was absolutely amazing, surely the most beautiful we have seen in India so far. Mr Harish helped you to pick out dishes for the evening meal, which were fresh and of excellent quality. Both rooms were spacious enough to fit two adults and... More

If you stay at Kaivalyam as long as we did - 9N/10D - you will come away being at peace with yourself. Tucked away in a spice plantation this small retreat of 8 rooms and 2 tree houses is a gem. Lush greenery surrounds you from any spot on the property. The loudest sound you will hear is from the... More

A perfect resort in the nature's lap. I liked Hiking to near by hill, a little walk to the spice garden and Yoga session. Overall food and hospitality was great. :) Thank you Harish, Mahesh and Vijayan(Hiking guide). You people made my trip. :)

This retreat is a little out of Munnar, but you will barely notice because the service and hospitality is so slick. I arrived very late on my check in date after a bumpy bus ride, and was immediately given a very warm welcome with chai and dinner. The food here was excellent, all cooked fresh each day using produce from... More
