The website for Kaivalyam does it no justice at all - if it weren't for the tripadvisor reviews we would have passed this one over - so glad we didn't. Even the tripadvisor photos don't show how lovely this place is. You reach the retreat via jeep from the main road - we had no problem getting up and down... More

A must stay for people looking for a relaxing and most peaceful stay on a hill station. In-fact its a model for all other resorts to follow. Kaivalyam Retreat is situated 7 km before Munnar on a hill slop in beautiful spice plantations in the area. Spread over 11 acres but has only 8 rooms and two tree-house. The all... More

We were in a treehouse for 4 glorious nights and despite the fact that I was ill the whole time I was there, I can't imagine a better place to recover and rest. The grounds are lovingly landscaped, the views are amazing. Everyone on the staff is friendly and goes out of their way to be helpful. Mr Harish is... More

Loved everything about this retreat - the rooms are gorgeous and have terraces that look out over the hills, waking up here is literally like being in paradise. The home cooked food is delicious and complimentary afternoon tea a nice treat. Morning yoga is practiced in an open sided cabin set amongst the hills with the most beautiful view, no... More

Situated in the hills surrounding Munnar and requiring a 4x4 to transfer you to the resort from the main road down steep narrow roads Kaivalyam is a fantastic place to retreat and unwind. The scenery surrounding, which is ever present through large windows in the rooms and dining hall, is breath taking and highlights the natural beauty of the area.... More

I was in Kaivalyam along with my family for three nights from 29/03/2014. Harish / Anju, an engineer, yoga - certified couple manage the place. First the context - reviews on portals like tripadvisor helps managements get feedback for improvement. There were some nasty reviews on this property. I jotted my list of questions and called Harish. I liked that... More

We had an amazing two night stay at the retreat. It's located in a stunning location, and the pictures don't do it justice! It was so quiet and peaceful, and the perfect getaway for city dwellers. The rooms were very neat and clean, and the food was really "homey" and extremely affordable. We thoroughly enjoyed the morning yoga and the... More
