I came to Munnar with my husband in the middle of November when the entire Munnar was blooming. You could see hues of yellow, orange set in the backdrop of green, everywhere. It was the peak season - I could see couples and bangles (read: chooras) everywhere. I wanted to stay some place special. And Kaivalyam turned out to be... More

I spent 1 month in India and this was my favourite place. First of all, Munnar - it's so beautiful! As someone else said, it's like living inside a postcard. Kaivalyam is 6 Km before you reach Munnar, set on a cliffside, surrounded by tea and cardamom plantations. As previously said, a spectacular setting! My friend enjoyed the nature walks... More

Our stay at Kaivalyam was splendid. We loved every moment we had spent here. The room size was big, we were with kids and hence it was a big size room, nice clean bathroom, although not ultimate on finishing but the bathrooms were clean and hygienic. A glass on the bathing area would be great so that the remaining bathroom... More

It is totally worth the excellent reviews. The rooms are clean and spacious. The calmness of this place is therapeutic. If it's Munnar it must be this place. Dear Harish, We had a lovely stay at your resort and enjoyed every moment of it. Starting from the jeep anna to the trekking guide everyone we came across exhibited sterling behavior... More

We absolutely loved Kaivalyam Retreat! We arrived here after 5 weeks of traveling through India and we were ready for the quiet and tranquil environment. The original booking was for the 2 day hiking package staying in a tree house. The tree house was a cool experience. It offers amazing views of the forest and is private. We enjoyed reading... More

We stayed for just a day and had a wonderful time. The room was clean and nice. Particularly good was the food which was not only very tasty but also healthy and light on the stomach. Since we are vegan, Mr. Harish went out of his way to organise tea with cashew milk for us during our stay there which... More

We stayed for two nights in a treehouse here during our visit to Kerela. Simply one word...outstanding! From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, we were very well taken care of by the staff. Harish, the soft spoken owner, is full of great information about the history of the area and the restaurant staff are friendly and... More
