First of all the scenery here was amazing. I stayed in the hotel for 2 nights with my parents. There is nothing that would stop me from saying that it was not a good hotel. From food to comfort everything was just great. I would really love to come here as often as i could. Very helpful staff and there... More

I think this was our best find in kerala. We stayed here for 3 nights and the experience can only get enhanced by the minute. I am out of words to express the beauty and serenity that this place can offer. Right from booking to checkout, everything was super smooth to magnify our experience. We are so glad we didn't...

There are a range of activities that the hotel offers, these include bird watching, yoga, and hillside plantation walk with transport. I noticed a good selection of books and games in the hotel library. Hotel laundry was excellent. The menus... More

The Kaivalyam Retreat was a wonderful experience. The setting was within a cardamom plantation. There was yoga in the morning, nature walks, tea tasting. The meals were excellent and they provided complimentary tea and cookies in the afternoon. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable and each had a scenic private terrace. Would recommend this hotel.

We were greeted with welcome drink & refreshing towel. Due to our late arrival we missed couple of activities which was scheduled pre-lunch. Rustic stone cladded... More

This is a fabulous place to stay in Munnar. The rooms are extremely neat and tree house is a real winner. It is a very unique experience. The stay was one of the highlights of our trip. The tree house makes you feel you amongst the woods. The spice trail is another great experience. The retreat has well maintained gardens,... More
