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

by far the best place to stay in Munnar/high range. the rooms are awesome, the cleanliness swisslike, the amenities are great, the service impeccable. a mecca in the midst of plantations. the only drawback is the small tv and no wifi in rooms, but really, this is no place for distractions :) ask for the honeymoon package, totally worth, flower...

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 wonderful place with nothing new to add to all the previous positive reviews. One has to stay here to experience it. It is difficult to express the smells and sounds of nature. Good: - Personal attention to every guest by the owner Mr. Harish who stays in the property itself with his family. - Best place to relax for... 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
