Stayed there two nights a week back. It is a fairly new property with well designed clean rooms and bathroom. I think the room quality and sleep quality is as good as any top hotel. The owner himself is a yoga expert and is so humble. He showed us to the room himself.... He even lugged our luggage in and... More

We had an excellent two night stay at the Kaivalyam Retreat. It was so private, relaxing and a nice reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the town. It was a family get together and we all had a wonderful time. The food was spectacular, very fresh and tasted good. They do not serve buffet for breakfast, however the breakfast... More

My wife found this retreat through trip advisor and we instantly liked it. The place is approx 800 mtr downhill from NH 49. The last mile drive is bit scary as it is too steep slope. The place has only 10 rooms including 2 tree house. Food is vegetarian and it's very good. All in all a very nice place... More

I came to this retreat for the yoga and I wasn't expecting so much luxury! The place was so beautiful and located on a spice plantation and very close to the tea gardens. All the food was delicious and organic. They even pick some of it right from the property. The coffee is also so good and I was told... More

We loved being in Munnar and felt very much at home and welcome at the Kaivalyam Retreat. The rooms are large and comfortable and our 7 year old son was made to feel very welcome. The hotel staff helped us organise trekking through the tea plantations and I especially loved the morning yoga sessions with Harish. Many thanks!
