After going through reviews on trip advisor which were very good, we chose this property. But as a traveller visiting Munnar for the first time, we were skeptical about which property to finally zero in. Thanks to all Trip Advisor users who had taken out time to write reviews which enabled us to close Kaivalyam. The best part about this... More

The rooms are really good nice and tidy. We booked tree house for two days, despite having smaller area, room has an awesome view to offer. Food was delicious,... More

We hit munnar on the 5th of July and had selected Kaivalyam Retreat for a quiet peaceful vacation for a couple of days - a much needed break from the noisy din and chock-a-block traffic snarls of the IT Capital of India (Bangalore) and to generally get out of the drab monotony of a corporate life spent in meetings and...

Kaivalyam Retreat is situated about 8 km out of Munnar town. They have a jeep that meets you on the main road and then takes you on a steep descent into a beautiful setting of gardens and spice plantations away from the bustle and noise. The room we stayed in was clean and the beds were very comfortable. I was... More

Kaivalyam Retreat was the absolute highlight of our trip. A peaceful, quiet place with the best homegrown food, friendly and helpful staff, clean and luxurious rooms and the amazing spice plantation. We stayed for two nights but we wish we could have stayed longer. The place has a free guided walk through the spice plantation with a great guy. He... More
