We stayed with our family, including parents and kids. We couldnt have found a better place than this. The location, food, service, everything was excellent. We stayed one night in tree house, and other night in regular room. Both rooms were very clean. The kids loved the treehouse. Food was so good and freshly made. Would highly recommend this place...

Nature abounds all around in both sights and sounds of this hillside retreat -- the view from my room was spectacular, with double patio doors that walk onto a nice terrace, or one can enjoy the view from the sitting...

Since we stayed during August, the weather was a bit wet but it did not dampen our efforts in exploring the tea gardens and the... More

Our stay at the Kaivalyam Retreat was very breif; only one night. First the positive: food was good and the location is a bit of an adventure to get to which was fun! Also the tea garden walk was a big plus. The negative points are: firstly, that it was under construction when we arrived. They were expanding. This was... More

Amazing time with Harish and his staff, they created an excellent experience. Service was superb. Food was great, we are not vegetarians but we loved it. Activities included yoga, bird watching, and hikes- one through the on site cardamom plantation to a river, the other through tea plantation to waterfall. We stayed in tree house one night and it was... More

We chose Kaivalyam after seeing lot of positive reviews on trip advisor, and the place lived up to the expectations I must say it even exceeded our expectations Location : beautiful Service : very good Food : very tasty (only veg is provided) Only concern I can think of is the road to the resort which is very steep
