    Despite it being the monsoon season this retreat has lots to offer. The hotel jeep will come and get you from the main road as it is a wee bit bumpy to get down the retreat set on a hill in a valley. The rooms are stunning and real value for money and the balcony over looks trees and the... More

    We were at kaivalyam on the 22nd and 23rd June, 2015 and i must say its a great deal to be at kaivalyam. Its a bit far from munnar town but its worth to be there. surrounding of lush green tall trees and built on steep slope make Kaivalyam a natural theater for enjoying natural beauty. We had very warm... More

    I came to Munnar with my husband in the middle of November when the entire Munnar was blooming. You could see hues of yellow, orange set in the backdrop of green, everywhere. It was the peak season - I could see couples and bangles (read: chooras) everywhere. I wanted to stay some place special. And Kaivalyam turned out to be... More

    I spent 1 month in India and this was my favourite place. First of all, Munnar - it's so beautiful! As someone else said, it's like living inside a postcard. Kaivalyam is 6 Km before you reach Munnar, set on a cliffside, surrounded by tea and cardamom plantations. As previously said, a spectacular setting! My friend enjoyed the nature walks... More

    Our stay at Kaivalyam was splendid. We loved every moment we had spent here. The room size was big, we were with kids and hence it was a big size room, nice clean bathroom, although not ultimate on finishing but the bathrooms were clean and hygienic. A glass on the bathing area would be great so that the remaining bathroom... More

    It is totally worth the excellent reviews. The rooms are clean and spacious. The calmness of this place is therapeutic. If it's Munnar it must be this place. Dear Harish, We had a lovely stay at your resort and enjoyed every moment of it. Starting from the jeep anna to the trekking guide everyone we came across exhibited sterling behavior... More
