This is one of the most beautiful, relaxing, awe-inspiring places I've ever seen. My husband and I spent two nights here and wanted to stay longer. It is so beautiful at Kollenkeril that it is very tempting to just stay there and not leave. Joseph and James greeted us on our arrival with a welcome drink and a tour of...

For me, Kollenkeril was one of my favourite experiences of our stay in Kerala. I treasure the tranquillity and what I can only describe as heavenly views. It was magical to watch the morning mist lift with the rain butterflies gently fluttering around making it feel so perfect. The bungalow had a homely feel in a very peaceful setting, a...

We did 2 nights in Munnar in our 1 week tour of Kerala. We were 4 adults and 2 kids and got 2 plantation view rooms. I have no words to describe the view. It is simply superb. It is a big property with a nice treehouse in the back of the bungalow or rather in front of our room....

We stayed at Kollenkeril plantation bungalow for 2 nights this month as part of our 10 day long tour in Kerala and would easily say this was one of the best highlights the other being the houseboat tour. Joseph who is the care taker of the property is passionate about what he does and took us on a spice plantation...

Kollenkeril Plantation. If you are traveling through or close to Munnar this IS the place to stay. Joseph and James were the ultimate hosts. Joseph gave us a tour around the plantation, and allowed us to taste and smell a large variety of spices, fruits and herbs. He described each and every plant to us with a passion and knowledge...

My wife and I stayed at Kollenkeril during our honeymoon and had a very nice time. The view from the property is truly beautiful, Joseph is a great host, very nice, friendly and helpful. We particularly appreciated the visit of the plantation. James' cooking (homemade food) was very good. The rooms were a bit dark and larger windows would brighten...

We stayed in Kollenkeril July 2012, during the rainy season. Joseph is a wonderful host, caring and attentive, without being pushy. The homely food prepared by James was lovely, if a little bit too spicy for our tastes (but we're very sensitive, so you might not have that issue). And we got to try typical south-indian food and even got...

Our visit to Kollenkeril was a highlight of our trip to Kerala. This is a place for those who love the beauty of nature, enjoy delicious food and want a place to rest and unwind. The views are spectacular and the care and attention given by Joseph, who manages Kollenkeril and his brother James, who cooks, is without parallel. We...

We had a very pleasant stay at the Kollenkeril plantation. Joseph was an excellent host, the food was good and the view was excellent. We had a party of 7 and was accommodated very nicely. The double bed in the joint-shared room was a bit too firm but everything else was lovely.
