We loved the welcome flowers in our room, the view from the room, the opportunity for late afternoon tea, and the willingness of staff to help. However, I am not quite as enthusiastic about the resort as other reviewers. A new "resort" is going up next door, so there are signs of construction as you walk down the hill to...

Everything at Blackberry Hills Retreat is designed for relaxation, and it works. Even just the sublime pleasure of sitting on your veranda looking far across rows of hills receding into the mist, with no sounds except birdsongs, is enough to transport you into nirvana, especially on a clear night with countless stars, or as the sun rises over the eastern...

We stayed for three nights and the staff were really helpful, with delicious food at the restaurant and a great massage in the spa. The view is excellent from the restaurant and more expensive rooms, although our villa had trees partly obscuring our view. You wouldn't come here for sunbathing facilities but the resort was relaxing, rooms spacious and sympathetically...

Lovely location and nice rooms although there were a number of maintenance issues - fridge didn't work, shower leaked and toilet wasn't reliable.

I have been travelling with a friend and we stayed here this week. A couple of things need attention, like a bit more grass near the restaurant. It's just a dusty spot now.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Perched on the majestic mountains of Munnar, Blackberry Hills Retreat & Spa™ offers you a mystic experience which only Mother Nature can provide. Wake up to watch the mist and sunbeams weave magical patterns, take a morning walk along the hilly pathways drenched in the aroma of wild flowers under the shade of cinnamon trees, feel the silence of the rocks that are as ancient as the earth, and watch the sleepy dales and distant villages down below the valley. Off the hubbubs of habitual life, nestled against the backdrop of Western Ghats, every charming little cottage offers magnificent views of the Sahya Mountain Ranges. Time comes to a standstill at the retreat, where days are incredibly snail paced. Well-furnished rustic cottages will charm you and invite you to have the most wonderful stay that Munnar can offer. Open your bedroom window and catch a glimpse of the most spectacular sunrise. Experience life flourishing in the far-flung plantation village from your balcony or simply whisper sweet nothings to the mist-drenched valley. You cannot get any closer to nature than this. What we offer is beyond a holiday resort for you experience Munnar in its entirety, its tea plantations, waterfalls and tropical Shola forests. Other Activities: Campfire and BBQ Trekking Mountain Biking High Tea and Snacks Activity Room ... more   less
