Location, view, tranquility, privacy, togetherness, along with good food, Ayurvedic massage and personalized service - if these are your priority then this resort is the perfect place. They could not connect my iPhone and iPad to Wi-Fi. Otherwise I'd given them a perfect 5.

Blackberry Hills was a beautiful quiet, peaceful and small resort arranged on terraces down the slope of a valley. Part of it is in a forest which makes it a haven for birdwatchers. We went at the start of August and it was rainy season so it monsooned. Our room, one of the lower cottages, was quite damp - my...

This was our second stay in Blackberry hills. Stayed in a cirrus room which offered fantastic view of the hills. The 'cloud-curtain' that went on and off the hills was a delightful sight to watch. I love the plantations around that give the feeling of living amidst nature. There is a definite sense of peace and tranquility in this place....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched on the majestic mountains of Munnar, Blackberry Hills Retreat & Spa™ offers you a mystic experience which only Mother Nature can provide. Wake up to watch the mist and sunbeams weave magical patterns, take a morning walk along the hilly pathways drenched in the aroma of wild flowers under the shade of cinnamon trees, feel the silence of the rocks that are as ancient as the earth, and watch the sleepy dales and distant villages down below the valley. Off the hubbubs of habitual life, nestled against the backdrop of Western Ghats, every charming little cottage offers magnificent views of the Sahya Mountain Ranges. Time comes to a standstill at the retreat, where days are incredibly snail paced. Well-furnished rustic cottages will charm you and invite you to have the most wonderful stay that Munnar can offer. Open your bedroom window and catch a glimpse of the most spectacular sunrise. Experience life flourishing in the far-flung plantation village from your balcony or simply whisper sweet nothings to the mist-drenched valley. You cannot get any closer to nature than this. What we offer is beyond a holiday resort for you experience Munnar in its entirety, its tea plantations, waterfalls and tropical Shola forests. Other Activities: Campfire and BBQ Trekking Mountain Biking High Tea and Snacks Activity Room ... more   less
