Hard to find off the main road from Munnar but worth the remote location for peace and tranquility. Located down a very steep road on the side of a hill made it very difficult for Aneesh, our driver from Earthy Routes. Thankfully the Hotel provided pick up and drop off to the top of the hill, this worked well. We... More

Kaivalyam retreat boasts excellent service and delicious food. We arrived at 3am on our first morning and were put up in a room at no extra cost. The staff here are helpful, friendly, down to earth and hospitable. Kaivalyam is 8km from Munnar Town and is best if you have a vehicle or are willing to pay +/- INR150 to... More

This hotel far surpassed our expectations. I was initially disappointed that we very not near the town of munnar, a few kilometres away but when we went to munnar I was truly glad we stayed where the did. The town is grim. The rooms were lovely with the most spectacular views. The staff were friendly and helpful and you left... More

This place is located about 6 km from the Munnar market place and has a simplistic touch with a serene and verdant ambience. In fact the last 1 km of the road leading to this place is an exciting experience if you are a driving enthusiast. (The hotel does offer assistance with their driver for this stretch) The property is... More

We remember the stay at Kaivalyam even till date. Mr Harish, the soft spoken, well mannered gentleman and his family made our stay special by taking care of all our small needs. The food at this place is awesome. The taste is authentic. Great chefs at this paradise in midst of a plantation. Coming back pretty soon.

Kaivalyam exceeded all our expectations. The rooms were extremely clean and well maintained. We stayed in one of the top floor rooms and the views were simply worth it! The weather was quite warm during our stay but the evenings were comparatively cool. Only vegetarian food is served in the property but it is quite simply one of the best... More

Lovely retreat with gracious hosts on a peaceful property away from the traffic and horns. Rooms are spacious and clean. We had an upper floor room with a deck and nice view of the surrounding mountains. Food was also very good. The property is building a spa as well which will be great when completed. They offer guided walks/ hikes... More
