Staying here with Santosh and his family was one of the highights of a recent trip to India. It's away from the hustle and bustle of Munnar and you really feel like you're away from it all. I see this place as a the perfect place for artists and writers to take time out to really get in touch with their creative sides - it really is so trabquil.
I spent some time with Santosh's cousin, who drives a rickshaw and took me on a tour. He is a really funny guy and knows the area like the back of his hand - i highly recommend going out for the day with him.
The rooms are really nice, very clean and comfortable with so much space. The view from the roof top is stunning. A perfect place to take a yoga mat or meditation cushion at sunrise and as for Satosh and his family they really make you feel welcome.
The food was some of the best I had in Kerala.
I will be going back without doubt and would love to take my partner and family.
Make it a must if you're in Munnar
