The Shade is an excellent place to stay when visiting Munnar. The host and his family were wonderfully accommodating and the house had some amazing views across the mountains. The host organised a sightseeing tour which was great and a very relaxing drive despite some very windy mountainous roads. We ate some delicious food during our stay and were sad... More

We stayed here in January and I will never forget it. Beautiful place, food and lovely family. Why has it taken me so long to write a review? I wanted to keep it a secret! But Santosh and his family deserve the utmost praise. Wonderful views over the garden, ravine and mountains..shhhh don't tell everyone!

You stay in a beautiful surrounding (spice and tea plantation) and from your terrace in front of your room you can oversee this quiet nature. The room is good, the owner and his family is really friendly and the food you eat is mostly of their own (organic) plantation. His wife is a really good Indian cook and you can... More

Couldn't have asked for a better stay in Munnar. My dad, sister and I stayed at The Shade. The property is very well kept, tastefully designed, and the views from the room we stayed in was breathtaking- probably one of the few times in my life I enjoyed waking up early just to take in the early morning view.
