And needless to say they were so please with their stay and every aspect of it....

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 11 January 2017

We loved our stay at Kaivalyam so much, we didn't want to leave! We found it to be really relaxed, welcoming, friendly and unpretentious - and in a beautiful forest/garden setting! The restaurant serves delicious, affordable fresh vegetarian food using local produce from the nearby markets. The menu was adapted daily (based on seasonal availability) which meant we enjoyed an...

Such an amazing location, It never feels like a commercially run hotel. So much of silence. All you can hear is the variety of birds chirping day and night. We stayed in a Tree top room for two days (Highly recommended), the view outside the room is stunning. One day i woke up with the melody of a bird which...

We loved this wonderful retreat. It felt more like a special experience than a hotel. We stayed in the double tree house (which the kids absolutely loved), it was very new (it had a huge bath!!) and a balcony overlooking the spice gardens/ jungle. The beds were very comfortable and soft (unusual for India). The food was hands down the...

Nice property, stayed there for 2 days couple 1st week of April. Amazing food, staff is very courteous and helpful. They have thier spice plantation and guided tour was good and as part of that you keep walking and go further down which reaches to the river. They have also arranged taxi's for site seeing. Nice experience, would definitely recommend

We stayed at kaivalyam retreat for 2 nights and had enjoyed every minute of our stay. One should never miss tree house stay which is best in munnar. Complimentary activities like yoga, bird watching are a treat.. lastly the vegetarian food delicacy simply best.

Stayed here for 2 nights with family. Somewhat difficult to find out initially and road leading to it very sloppy and ordinary driver can't manage it. But they have their jeep and drivers who will take care of your vehicle also ... and then you reach the property and it is like heaven only. Rooms are simple but elegantly decorated...

This retreat is set in some beautiful grounds, surrounded by coconut tee, cardomen and tea plantation. I was stunned when I turned up - it is so quiet and stunning. The rooms are done to a very high standard and are clean! I had a beautiful terrace looking into the mountains of Munnar. I felt so relaxed here and the...

You will have to take the off road to reach this place and the ride is no less than a riller coaster :D. We had a room on the ground floor and they are equally beautiful as the ones on the first floor (If you have an option, opt for the 1st floor rooms). The food and the hospitality was...
