Flower Valley homestay is a stunning retreat tucked away in the mountains of Idukki. True to its name, the premises are comprised of a lush, colorful garden, accessible only by footbridge over a gurgling stream. The room itself is clean and comfortable, with a huge comfy bed and an airy bathroom. The proprietors are gracious, welcoming, and kind, and will serve you an absolutely delicious Keralan dinner and breakfast prepared to your tastes. The only drawback is that the homestay is about a 40 minute drive from from any of Munnar's main attractions, but that is a relatively small price to pay for the comfort and quiet surroundings.
Im not much of a reviewer. So ill keep this short. I stayed here with my friends for two nights and there was nothing we had to complain about. The property is beautiful with a variety of exotic plants (ask about the strawberry guava) in full bloom. Never eaten so much fruit broken directly from the tree.
The service is just absolutely fabulous. The uncle and aunty there go really out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as they can.
I recommend this to all. Cheers.
Honestly, this was our best outing so far in any home stay. This property - quaintly located amidst lush greenery and away from the buzz of the city's commotion. It is not only quite well maintained and beautifully decorated, but, the hosts go out of their way to ensure that your stay is a memorable one and thanks to the sumptuous meals served by them.
The entire Homestay is very clean and neatly maintained. All common areas other areas are frequently cleaned.Hats off to Ancy’s patience to getting the place and garden cleaned to keep it Clean and Neat.
Talking about the sumptuous meal they had served is one of the main attraction. You will feel like you are eating your home cooked dinner. Unique dishes prepared specially by the daring housewife Ancy will tip you off your toes with its Taste and Speciality.
All the services that we required where happily arranged by the hosts within our budget, We were instructed well regarding the surroundings and the places that we should visit before we leave. They had made sure that all our necessities were met without any lack.
A walk through the Mist covered Farm and the Garden in the morning will cleanse our mind and will relieve us from our stress.
Can’t express our feelings for the hosts for making our stay a memorable one, I would say
“ A beautiful place rich with scenic beauty worth your time and money! “

We booked Flower Valley because the photos on a competitor website looked pretty. We were not to be let down.
We arrived and were met immediately by Joy and Ancy who helped us to our room. What hit us immediately was that the photos don't do Flower Valley justice, it's more beautiful than the photos suggest. After settling in to the exceptionally clean room with an enormous comfortable bed, spacious bathroom with 24/7 hot water, Ancy took us on a tour of the gardens and nursery that they run alongside the homestay.
It was beautiful - wonderfully kept gardens and no sounds from the nursery other than nature's own.
Ancy and Joy have a great knowledge of the area and have fantastic contacts to help tailor your visit very expertly. We met Jason who essentially took us wherever we wanted to go very reasonably!
There is the option of 3 traditional Keralan meals per day prepared by the expert cook Ancy. These meals are fantastic - tasty and ample.
In short, neither of us could find fault with Flower Valley - would we recommend: YES, would we stay again: YES, would we stay longer if we could: YES!!!
Stay at Flower Valley - you will not be disappointed.
We as a family of 3 visited this homestay for diwali holidays. We spent 4 days there and trust me... we just didn't realise how the days passed by.
Flower valley is a newly run homestay run by Mrs. & Mr. Joy. We were the 3rd guest that they have had... but trust me though it's a newly started one there were no shortcomings in any of the services... Their hospitality is commendable... we never felt anything was wrong anywhere.. nor did we have any worries on anything. It was just a feel at home atmosphere there.. Mrs. Joy was always ready with a big smile to extend her help to make our stay very comfortable... even if we would have stayed in a great hotel I am sure that we wouldn't have enjoyed being in Munnar how we enjoyed being in Flower Valley... It was a very reasonable place in terms of cost also. It's worth every single penny you spend... a very relaxing stay!!
The food Mrs. Joy cooked for us was also great and she took utmost care in checking with us our likes and dislikes with respect to our food habits. Over all I would give them 99/100... 1 mark only for them to keep improving the good work they are doing.
I will definitely recommend this place to every family and more so if they have children... I had no problem getting food cooked for my 2 year old son as Mrs. Joy made me feel very comfortable even in using her kitchen.
We as a family just thanked God for the wonderful place and the people he gave us during our short stay in Munnar.
