A lovely place, and lovely people. This offers perfect relaxation and / or plenty of activity depending on how much time you have. Anil and Jeeva have the balance just right on being attentive hosts and offering you perfect tranquillity and the ability to make the most of beautiful surroundings. Alfonsa also deserves a special mention for her beaming smiles and keeping us topped up with tea, chapatis and pancakes. We only had 2 nights here but could easily have stayed longer. Our room had a TV with many channels on offer but we were way too busy to watch it of course, I thought I’d mention this though as it was the only place out of 5 we stayed in with this on offer – could be useful if someone is bed ridden with a troubled tummy. It’s also the only place we stayed where we took up the offer of evening meals and they were utterly delicious. If we could have stayed longer, maybe we would have been able to go in the kitchen and learn a bit about Keralan cuisine. Breakfast offered different exotic fruits on both mornings, very interesting and appetising. No wonder they’re getting such good reviews all the time, the only thing wrong with this place is that we didn’t stay long enough. Even though when you’re there, you feel as though you’re miles from civilization, we had our driver and there was a nearby village 10 minutes away where we saw the Kathakali and an incredible martial arts display. Plenty of the attractions of Munnar on the 2nd day as well (speedboating / dams, lakes, tea factory not to mention spectacular scenery) and in the evening Anil and his lovely daughter took us for a very interesting short walk in the tea fields. Two words for this place. First class!
