John Buchan said "Trying to see something solid in the mists is the whole fun of life, and most of its poetry" and no place is this is more pronounced than in the bungalows nestled amidst the tea estates of The Tea Sanctuary - Munnar. Another lovely colonial mansion converted into a retreat for the restless soul. Munnar is a... More

My friend discovered this place and she was quite excited to be there on the basis of reviews. We checked few other options in munnar city before we finally proceeded to this place. She was bit scared as to how we will react as it was outside city and feeling was bit scary during late night. But the moment we... More

I stayed here from 2nd Oct 2013 to 4th Oct 2013 along with my wife. I came to know of this property from an online review in a popular automotive forum. Initially, I had booked it for staying in May 2013. Due to some unavoidable reasons, I could not make the trip and had to drop travelling plans in the... More

The location is outstanding, bang in the middle of tea plantations. The experience is truly one of a kind. That said, for the price you pay, clearly a lot more is expected. Firstly, the weather; We went in the first week of September, when the tourist season was yet to start. It did rain quite a bit, mostly in the... More

The Tea Sanctuary is a division of KDHP (Kannan Devan Hills Plantations) which is basically owned by the TATA Tea division. KDHP basically owns 85% of the tea plantations here in Munnar. They have different tea estates and each has a bungalow in it. Originally they were meant for the tea plantation managers. But due to the modernisation over the... More

Our Tea Sanctuary experience was definitely not what we expected - it was better and worse in equal measure! We had thought that the different Tea Sanctuary bungalows would be close to each other, with some sort of central reception building, but our bungalow was completely isolated and information was hard to come by! While this was a bit unsettling... More

It's probably the cheaper of the many tea estates that offered accommodation. The European style house was manned by a team of housekeepers. The room was indeed very large for me a solo traveller, which came with a large bedroom and sitting room, a dress-up room and a shower/toilet. The place was indeed filled with old-world charm and therefore in... More

Dear ardent travellers, First of all I should thank Trip advisor. If not for their reminders I wouldn’t be writing this review in the first place. I think over the years I have become lazy :) lol. Anyways this review is about my favourite place to stay and detox in Munnar. We did this trip during the 2ed month of... More

The Tea Sanctury bungalows must be the best places to stay in Munnar if you want beautiful views of the plantations and personal service. Booking is easy with the very helpful Mr. Dharmaraj. Four of us had Chokanad to ourselves for 3 glorious days relaxing in the lovely garden and walking in the plantation. Eighty year old caretaker and chef... More

First the booking, I booked the Tea Sanctuary at the last minute through phonw when my other booking at Munnar fell through. The manager Mr. Dharmaraj was very helpful and though I had only a confirmation sms from him, we kept in touch via phone, and when we reached the bungalow the caretaker and his helper were already waiting for...
