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!

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.
