Could kissed mountains , mist covered valleys and undulating tea gardens made my stay at this marvelously designed resort an enthralling experience. The moment you get there you get transported to a delightful world of peace , tranquility and pristine natural beauty. Fine food is the icing on the cake.

The grounds in which the hotel is in are very pretty, with lots of different flowers and fruits growing. The food was delicious and the waiting staff were lovely.

Had a nice stay over here. The staff and service was exceptional. The room was spacious and beautiful. Would recommend this resort except for the food as it was expensive and the taste was not upto the mark. Overall experience was amazing.

We stayed at the hotel in early June, so the rainy season had started already. The hotel was nice enough, but the room could have been cleaner for the price, and everything was always damp so there was a lot of mildew. I guess that's hard to control with the weather. The restaurant is very nice and the waiters were... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched on the majestic mountains of Munnar, Blackberry Hills Retreat & Spa™ offers you a mystic experience which only Mother Nature can provide. Wake up to watch the mist and sunbeams weave magical patterns, take a morning walk along the hilly pathways drenched in the aroma of wild flowers under the shade of cinnamon trees, feel the silence of the rocks that are as ancient as the earth, and watch the sleepy dales and distant villages down below the valley. Off the hubbubs of habitual life, nestled against the backdrop of Western Ghats, every charming little cottage offers magnificent views of the Sahya Mountain Ranges. Time comes to a standstill at the retreat, where days are incredibly snail paced. Well-furnished rustic cottages will charm you and invite you to have the most wonderful stay that Munnar can offer. Open your bedroom window and catch a glimpse of the most spectacular sunrise. Experience life flourishing in the far-flung plantation village from your balcony or simply whisper sweet nothings to the mist-drenched valley. You cannot get any closer to nature than this. What we offer is beyond a holiday resort for you experience Munnar in its entirety, its tea plantations, waterfalls and tropical Shola forests. Other Activities: Campfire and BBQ Trekking Mountain Biking High Tea and Snacks Activity Room ... more   less
