It was a nice experience here. Not far away from main city munnar and at a walking distance from Blossom park ( one of the listed attractions in Munnar ). Tariff is reasonable and the staff is quite supportive. Food here is very nice. Value for money guaranteed.

Matter of surprised that there was no Hindi or English TV Channel in the hotel in particular News Channel. However tariff is reasonable and I feel value of money. The lawns of the hotel are good adjoining plot is a vacant land belonging to Forest Dept.

We spent 2 nights at the Royal Retreat paying 3000 rps per night. This did not represent value for money.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Royal Retreat is a 16 room private hotel built in 1988; it is located at Aluva -Munnar Road, and just a walk away from the Blossom gardens. What makes the hotel unique is its location unlike the hotels near and around Tea gardens, Royal Retreat is built like a set of cottages with an amazing garden in front, all major tourist attractions are only a stone throwaway. The feel is very cozy and personal. The hotel rooms are spacious with large windows, classic hardwood furniture and tasteful colors. Most rooms have temple view across our very popular garden adding to the sense of peace and tranquility you will experience here. The elegantly designed MULTI CUSINE RESTURANT which serves traditional, continental and Chinese cuisines has soothing interiors and a quiet ambiance, allowing you to enjoy your meal in peace and comfort ... more   less
