Getting to this property is an experience in itself. Once u reach pallivasal a jeep will come to pick u up from the main road. Wonder why? The roads can give a roller coaster ride run for money. Don't worry the drivers are well equipped to drive on these roads. At the end of the roller coaster ride is a... More

Stayed in Kaivalyam for 3 nights starting from Oct 1, 2014 with a family of 5 people and stayed in 2 cottages. Right from the welcome drink to check-out, the process was smooth, very helpful and courteous staff and excellent food options. They have customized food to our requirement right from complimentary breakfast to dinner and it was an extremely... More

We had a very good time here. I had requested special food for my toddler, and they did a very good job with it with no issues. Property is very clean and we loved our small strolls in backyard with the toddler.

Kaivalyam is high in my top ten places to stay worldwide. The sense of serenity and relaxation created is truely inspiring. The location, deep in a valley, creates views I could and did gaze at for days, and provides a sense of isolation from the world. Indeed you'll need to utilise the retreat's driver and jeep to access the property.... More

I stayed there with my family last year for two nights (9th and 10 sep. 2013). Everything is so perfect about this place. The dining area + library, the rooms.. so very perfectly designed. In the midst of nature along with all modern facilities. After we checked in here we didn't even think to go some where else for any... More

Perched on a hillside, nestled amongst a cardamon plantation and the forest, Kaivalyam is a peaceful, rejuvenating corner of India. Conveniently located near national parks, but somewhat removed from Munnar, you are generally best placed to eat at the onsite restaurant. Just as well, then, that the food is fantastic and the staff supremely attentive and friendly. We took a... More
