This is a wonderful and tranquil place to stay in Munnar, - very authentic to its surroundings and not a as many of the other "glitzy" out-of-place hotels in the area. Maximize your stay with these experiences which are offered for free by the estate, and you will discover why this place is such a "secret tip": - Borrow a...

It's one of the best places to stay in Munnar, away from the tourist crowd, in the middle of a huge cardamom plantation. The staff is extremely warm and will attend to event minute need that you might have. Food is delicious, and the rooms are comfortable, upper floor has great views too! Beautiful place to relax, unwind and rejuvenate!...

Set in over 75 acres of cardamom plantation. Lovely bungalows and panoramic views over the surrounding countryside.. You have your own garden with seats to relax. Average food, Stick to Indian as European dishes not good. No alcohol licence so take your own.

We had a wonderful stay on this tranquil estate. The vegetation and birdlife were fabulous. The food in the restaurant was delicious with a super variety of fresh local produce. The plantation walk was fascinating with the local guide having an excellent knowledge of local plants and wildlife.
