Green shades is 13 KM far from munnar town and located on the national highway. I stayed for couple of days in Munnar but then booked this place for the third night as I thought it may provide some peaceful stay with good views of the jungle and hills. The place turned out to be more than my expectations. We...

We booked Green Shades last minute as we didn't want to stay in the town. Located about 10km from the town of Munnar Green Shades is located just off the main road. It consists of very comfortable rooms behind the owner's house. The gardens and location were absolutely beautiful, and it was incredibly peaceful. Sangtosh (I can't quite remember his...

This place is close to 15 kms from the Munnar town close to a spice plantation. Luckily the roads are good and there is parking available inside their premises. There is one good restaurant called View Point nearby which serves awesome uttappams. Other dishes we tried were ordinary. The hotel can provide you with dinner if you ask in advance...

We've been traveling throughout Asia for more than 15 years in various countries. So we know that things are not always up to western standards in Asia and understand one cannot expect a 5 star hotel service at a home stay. But green Shades just doesn't deliver the facilities and holiday atmosphere it advertises. The only thing well maintained the...

We booked our two-night stay at Green Shades through booking.com, where the listing promised: "The centralised kitchen offers food on request via room service. Green Shades operates a 24-hour front desk. Guests can make travel arrangements at the tour desk, or get assistance with luggage storage, laundry and ironing services." However, upon arrival, we discovered that there was no kitchen or...

Though Green Shades is several kilometers away from Munnar, it is a beautiful "tree house" in a gorgeous, quiet, wonderful forest. The manager was sensational, helpful, pleasant, and kind, as he did everything around the place except the cooking. In addition to serving our breakfast, answering questions, cleaning our room, and taking care of everything around the place, he stood...

Great place, lovely food, different breakfast every day, great dinners. Hotel manager was very helpful and organised trips and rickshaws / cars whenever we needed one. Hotel outside of Munnar with a really lovely garden next to a Spice Garden where we had a delightful tour with a really knowledgeable guide. Well worth a visit.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Green Shades plantation holidays with all the luxuries of a hotel and the peace and tranquility of a home. Set amidst 10 acres of verdant lush landscape with a marvelous view of misty hills on eastern side, and sky scraping trees on the west. The only thing that could disturb you is the lullaby of the birds. Its just 12 kms. away from Munnar town, very near to National Highway. The land is gifted with a vast variety of spice plants, fruit plants and vegetables. 6 twin accommodations are available with clay tile roofing and the clean natural mineral-rich well water is an added attraction. ... more   less
