We stayed at Kaivalyam Retreat as part of a trip organised through Carnival Tours. We would consider this a small hotel rather than a homestay . We were a little apprehensive on the basis of this being a ‘retreat’, pure vegetarian, no alcohol etc - however we were pleasantly surprised – Kaivalyam Retreat was excellent! The location is away from... More

We went in the month of July for 3 days (6th to 9th) and stayed in Tree house. We were well received by Mr. Harish and a jeep is at our service whenever we wanted to go to nearest places. The retreat is in excellent valley location with scenic views of cardamom trees, Coffee and other spice plantations. The view... More

A very quite surroundings in the hills, full of flora & fauna. Very helpful owner Mr Harish, personally looks after the guests. Recommend for a memorable family visit. The restaurant food is very good. The 9 family members were in age group from 2 years to 75 years, and all enjoyed the stay. S C. Bhatnagar

This is coming some months down the line, but I am happy that I am finally putting down my thoughts on this beautiful property. We loved everything- the morning yoga sessions, the food was homely and delicious, the room was superb...very tastefully done with glass doors opening to a small sitting area and the trees beyond. We also went on... More

We stayed here for 2 nights - in the tree house. The tree house is done very well, one of the walls is actually completely glass within big frames - and gives view to magnificent valley, mountains and plantation trees... The food was also very good... this is a pure vegetarian resort and all the dishes were prepared nicely and... More

This is a very tranquil place in the midst of lush greenery. The people here are so warm and friendly. The food they provide is absolutely healthy, nutritious and delicious. The rooms were very nice as well. They also have morning yoga sessions for guests staying at the resort.

What is there to say about Kaivalyam that hasn't already been said. Run by an amazing couple who live and practice what they believe, the whole Kaivalyam experience is consistent and authentic. The 8 rooms are beautifully appointed looking out into the forest and although they are in a block they are so well positioned and insulated it would be... More

We enjoyed a very relaxing 3 night stay at Kaivalyam, staying 2 nights in one of the tree houses and one night in the luxury room. The highlight for us was the free yoga each morning, an incredibly beautiful, rounded session in a very beautiful, open space with amazing views. As the sun rose, it never failed to move us.... More
