We got Hydel Garden facing room, but it was under maintenance :( Room was OK. Hot water only runs for certain time. Room has only one charging port. As out trip was in January end, Munnar temperature was chilled and Room has many windows. So AC or Fan was not required. But surprisingly there was NO FAN at all. Breakfast... More

We 2 families traveled in Nov 2015... The place is quite with a lovely garden in front of the rooms! It had blossomed with a variety of flowers!! The food is good! Rooms very clean, though there is a scope for improvement. But not bad. Overall a good experience!

Dirty rooms, no wifi in the rooms, hot water is available only for a few hours every day and the price is outrageous. We actually booked a room which included breakfast but when we arrived there we found out there is no breakfast included. Avoid at all cost.

I went there with my family and we all loved the cottages. Very cosy and was the perfect place for a family. The location is beautiful. Value for money. We spent a lot of time on the hammocks and the view from the resort is very refreshing. :D

Overpriced room for what you got. Musty bathroom and dirty sheets that didn't cover the mattress, in a small room. The resort restaurant served very average food, and un-stomach-able sweetened toast and salty eggs. It had a nice garden and an alright location, however I would suggest booking at a different location slightly out of Munnar. You cannot call this... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Royal Retreat is a 16 room private hotel built in 1988; it is located at Aluva -Munnar Road, and just a walk away from the Blossom gardens. What makes the hotel unique is its location unlike the hotels near and around Tea gardens, Royal Retreat is built like a set of cottages with an amazing garden in front, all major tourist attractions are only a stone throwaway. The feel is very cozy and personal. The hotel rooms are spacious with large windows, classic hardwood furniture and tasteful colors. Most rooms have temple view across our very popular garden adding to the sense of peace and tranquility you will experience here. The elegantly designed MULTI CUSINE RESTURANT which serves traditional, continental and Chinese cuisines has soothing interiors and a quiet ambiance, allowing you to enjoy your meal in peace and comfort ... more   less
