“An Ideal Location To Experience 'God's Own Country'!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We chose Deshadan purely because we wanted the highest location possible. The property exceeded out expectations in the quality of its rooms and the view of the valley from the room balcony. The staff at Deshadan were always cheerful, wanting to help and responsive to our need. For example, we wanted to taste the Kerala mutton stew and appam. We were treated to it at the first breakfast we had. We had no hesitation in recommending it to our friends, who were planning to travel the next weekend.

Room Tip: Choose a valley view room. It is a panoramic spectacle.

We stayed here during our Kerala trip in April 2013. The rooms(cottage) was very clean and large in size. The view from the window and the balcony was simply amazing!!! It was like we had come to Manali in summer. The buffet breakfast of the hotel was very good. The hotel was at such a height that we could easily see the beautiful tea gardens below. I recommend this hotel to everyone going to Munnar.

As other travelers have noted, the view is breathtaking from this hotel! For the chance to see the clouds rolling by, it is worth the stay. The room is decorated well and had a soft bed. The bathroom was clean, although it had a peculiar (chemical) like smell to it. The staff was courteous and pleasant. I had friends visiting with me from the States and they enjoyed the "walk in the clouds." I was a little disappointed with the extra cot in the room. The bed was not big enough for my husband, child and myself so I went and tried to get the cot ready. It was extremely dusty and when I pulled it out, it triggered an allergy attack.

It was start of our lovely HM.. n what a way to start it.. Deshadan is located way far from town of Munnar, but for honeymooners, it's never too far! But ur driver shoud be well versed with driving to deshadan the highest resort in Kerala. Full of greenery n flowers, but best is view from Valley View Room. just go for it, n go only for it.. Staff is courteous. Though not highly equipped, Deshadan has all u need to be tranquilized. Food is good. Try Kerala stuffs. I can't comment abt non-veg items. No Hidden Costs. they arranged DJ on New year eve. If possible take a walk down the road to Deshadan, It's amazing being there, but make it sure u return back in time before it's too dark...

Room Tip: Choose Valley View Rooms
