My daughter and I just returned from 2 weeks in Kerala. Our Royal Mist home stay with Jeeva and Anil and their sweet helper, Alphonsa, was just lovely. These are truly warm people, folks: welcoming from the soul. I had made an error with my booking dates, but the family still managed to accommodate us with every amenity. The room itself was immaculate and very comfortably appointed, meals were very nice and served on the restful veranda just outside the guest rooms. Attention has been paid to every small detail at this handsome home stay, which is a short walk from a stunning tea plantation and spice farm. Anil walked us all around, giving us the benefit of his extensive knowledge of the history, culture and topography of the area. My daughter was fascinated with the gorgeous flowering plants and fruit trees that Jeeva has planted all around the Royal Mist property. We asked a million questions, and I don't believe Anil ever lost his warm smile, or happy persona for one minute of our interaction. Jeeva was the same, always checking for our comfort and happy to accommodate our wishes any way possible. We had come with a driver and car, so all of Munnar's attractions were very accessible. Being closer to Munnar proper would not have been an advantage, as we would have missed the chance to experience some genuine Kerala hospitality.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

This particularly close knit family with two children aged 13and 18 are incredibly hospitable, welcoming guests as part of the family, whilst allowing them as much independence as they desire. The separate area of the guests' rooms occupies the top floor of this modern house with an upstairs terrace, which looks out onto the valley and hills extending into the distance. ... more less
