We booked online and arrived late, the hotel staff prepared a dinner for us and were very helpful about finding transport and tourist trips the next morning. Had a great breakfast in the morning and walked around the spice garden there with a guide. Bed a little hard but overall great one night stay and good food and helpful staff....

The setting for this homestay is beautiful, you wake up in the morning to mist covered mountains and greenery.

The rooms are basic, but clean, and Santosh who runs the homestay was a very friendly and helpful host. He helped us to arrange...

Wifi was quite unstable and it wasn't working most of the time on our second day. Santosh (I hope I'm spelling his name right) who is either the...

We stayed at Green Shades in Munnar in October 2014 for 3 days. We interacted with Rish before booking and making advance payments. Rishi was extremely helpful in accommodating a last minute change in dates as well as I had to push out my travel by a day. This place is right on the main road from Munnar to Kochi...

Green Shades plantation holidays with all the luxuries of a hotel and the peace and tranquility of a home. Set amidst 10 acres of verdant lush landscape with a marvelous view of misty hills on eastern side, and sky scraping trees on the west. The only thing that could disturb you is the lullaby of the birds. Its just 12 kms. away from Munnar town, very near to National Highway. The land is gifted with a vast variety of spice plants, fruit plants and vegetables. 6 twin accommodations are available with clay tile roofing and the clean natural mineral-rich well water is an added attraction. ... more   less
