We stayed here in a treehouse for 2 nights and it was simply breath-taking! Lovely rooms, incredible views, wonderful service and tasty food. The staff were extremely helpful and very friendly, the daily yoga and meditation sessions were also a nice way to unwind after the hustle and bustle of Munnar town. Highly recommended as a place to recharge!

We were welcomed by the owner with a glass of home made lemon and mint juice and a lemon grass hot towel. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and nothing is too much trouble. All the...
