Divided into the ground and the first floor, the latter has a common deck area for everyone to hang out and relax in. Three of the rooms have cardamom plantation views. Imagine waking up to that every single morning on your days off? Ahh, the dream! The rest are facing the garden, so that’s a pretty amazing deal too. The ground floor rooms have private balconies to delight in beautiful views.

It is important to remember that this is not a resort but a homestay. Think of it as living in your own home with great views and someone to take care of it.

There is an open hut restaurant that can accommodate up to 12-15 people if you wish to sit outside to have your meals.

The area gets misty pretty quickly owing to the weather there and it is best to check in before it gets dark so that you don’t lose your way. The property is situated some 10 km off the main Munnar town and so it is good to know that it is placed safely within a village.
