This place is located around 15km from Kuttikkanam, Kerala. Make sure to ask the correct route to this place before going as some roads which will show in google map may not be a good idea as some road works are going on.

Unexpectedly treacherous off road drive to the hill top. Bungalow was quaint and beautiful, but the new management was not prepared for guests. We were booked there for 3 nights (Agoda double booked us and refused to fix the problem or refund us) as a result we had only 1 night there and no where to go and no way... More

It was an awesome weekend that we had. Urumbi Hill Palace is something every nature lover should explore. Built in the start of 1900's, this resort started functioning a decade ago it seems. The property is well maintained with some great garden, varandah's, seating arrangements, accomodation spaces etc. Bathroom facilities and beds were too good, and they served nice food... More

I went to Urumbi Hill Plantation resort with my family for weekend. It will be a lonely place for single family. Its adventurous, will love the 9 kms off road travel in a 4X4 wheel drive jeep to the resort. Amazing views. Hospitality is good but not professional.

We went to Urumbi over the weekend , as a large group of four families. There are 3 suites and 2 double bedrooms. The drive up in self is an adventure. Not for the faint hearted. Suv's and jeeps will just about get there. They can arrange for your cars to be parked down and taken up in a jeep.... More

Amazing place totally disconnected by mobile and internet. Nice weather. It was a bit sunny during day time, But became a bit cold after 11 pm. This is actually 5 bedroom estate bunglow which can accomodate 16 people. There is a private water fall near bunglow. But there was no water when we visited. The food was superb and hospitality...

Absolutely a haven for true nature lovers.....mountain side, waterfalls, plantation, trekking routes, great climate coupled with good service.....You will need to engage a 4 wheel drive Jeep from the bottom of the mountain in Yendayar (Near Mundakayam, Kerala) if you don't have a 4x4 and the drive up (about 8 km which takes close to an hour) is thrilling.
