“Amazing view from the terrace”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

The cottage is really nice, especially the view you got from the terrace and the rooftop. The restaurant brings the food directly to the cottage so you can dine on the terrace/rooftop while enjoying the breathtaking view. The food was good and the prices reasonable.

The rooms where very clean and everything you need was provided. Prakash was extremely helpful and responded to every request within minutes.

Also very good is that you have a washing machine in the cottage!

The only thing I was annoyed of was that I had to pay for the breakfast even it was originally included. But apparently as I got a special rate on the cottage it was extra. However, I should mention that when I was heavily ill, Prakash was there in a minute and brought me to a doctor without accepting any money for this help (neither did the doctor).

I definitely recommend going there. Prepare yourself and find out about the trekking paths in Munnar as the typical tourist sights are not worth seeing but rather the stunning nature and the beautiful tea plantations.

I would strongly recommend this resort to all visiting Munnar. Set in a beautiful hill-range, surrounded by lush green tea gardens, the cottage is like a paradise in itself. Each room has been so lovingly decorated with beautiful stitch-work paintings and lovely upholstery. The balcony and personal terrace overlook the stunningly beautiful panoramic view. A little kitchen facility stocked, very sweetly, with milk, and tea and coffee,provides you with the option of brewing your own tea and putting together a quick meal if you want to. The cottage itself is very cosy and warm and really really clean. And as i already mentioned above, the setting is idyllic. not to far from Munnar and also, not in the midst of the bustling town, Carpe diem is perfectly located, though prakash (the care-taker and manager there) was very sweet to drive us into the town and show us around. Take my advice...visit Munnara and stay at Carpe diem and you wont want to come back or else will be as happy as I am and definitely want to go back again :)...its a perfect holiday destination!!!

Stayed here with friends for two nights in October this year. We found it a beautifuil spot to use as a base for exploring the Western Ghats around Munnar. The cottage is first class with two bedrooms, two bathrooms [one with bath] a kitchen and dinning room. However the real bonus is the two balconies from where you can view the birds and the lush surroundings. All the accomodation is of a European standard and if there are enough of you to use both bedrooms the rates are quite reasonable. I have no hesitation in strongly reconmending Carpe Diem

Stayed in this place for 2 days. Its an awesome property, service and care was excellent. Its slightly away from Munnar and hence if u plan for too much of sight seeing u gotta leave early.

Since its slightly downhill the weather was pleasant and not as cold as munnar

The resort was full and hence they served only buffet BF & Dinner. The food was good and if u are late you will not get the full course.

Care taker was Prakash, he did a fabulous job.

Even though quite far away from the munnar town, the winding roads, roaring river, and chilling breeze is definitely worth experiencing.

Having shouldered burdens for months at a stretch, this trip was relaxing as well as rejuvenating.

I forgot the name of the escort who waited for us for about 2 or more hours in munnar town, to guide us to this place.

He was kind enough to help us buy the provisions to cook. We bought rice, chicken, spices, and groceries.

By the time we reached the cottage it was almost 11 in the night and he helped us by sourcing some vessels to prepare our dinner.

We could not see anything during the night, however, we had good positive vibes that this place will be remembered for a long time and it turned true to our delight.

The sunrise and the chirping of birds - the stunning view of the mountains was breathtaking.

The only negative side is no restaurant in the near vicinity, but the escort managed to get us puttu with kondai kadalai curry.

Will be visiting this place again with another group of friends on 18th and 19th December 2010.

It was our pleasure to have this group of young men as our guests. We will welcome them again at their next visit, with the same courtesy. The restaurant has been opened now and offers a variety of Indian dishes. I am the guy who waited for hours for you and guided you to the resort, my name is Prakash. I hope to see you all soon again.

I travelled with my husband and his parents and we stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage with which we were absolutely delighted. The surrounds are absolutely stunning with unrivalled views from all around the property. The people were friendly and very accommodating and the cottage we stayed in was lovely with spacious bedrooms (both en-suite) and good communal spaces for relaxing etc. Munnar and the surrounding areas are beautiful and easily reached by car. We found this a perfect base to do some exploring of the surrounding area from and will certainly return.

Thank you for your honest review. It was our pleasure to have you all as guests. I do believe that you did have a wonderfull experience since your mother in law was ready to buy a similar cottage in this resort the day you were leaving. That was a compliment. We would love to have you visit us again!
