We stayed here for one night, as part of our two weeks trip through the south of India. This was by far the best accommodation we had during our trip, and we regret not being able to stay longer at this amazing place (we had a pre-booked itinerary). The staff is exceptional, always friendly and helpful, they have different activities...

We've spent two days at the Blackberry Hills Retreat & Spa and were amazed by the beautiful location, the clean and modern lodges (we loved the bathrooms in particular) and the restaurant. The first evening we spoilt ourselves with a Swedish massage in the on-site Spa, highly recommendable if you seek for moments of deep relaxation. The second day we've...

For the price you pay for this property you can stay in a 5 star hotel. NEVER book directly with the hotel management. They charge sky-high prices.Book through GoIbibo or any other website. I booked the hotel close to 25 days in advance. The management could have suggested me to book through ibibo as they already have agreement with GoIbibo....

This resort & spa is amazing. Situated in a quiet location in the hills of munnar, cottages are dotted on the hill side. Everything is designed to be eco-friendly, views are stunning. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. Would stay here again without a second thought.

The review was long overdue. Our visit to Blackberry resort and spa was a very memorable experience. The resort is safe and has so much to offer that it was worth spending 4 days there. Its so beautifully located on top of a hill. We stayed at Nimbus cottage, which felt secluded (in a good way) and was spacious and...

Our 3 day stay at Blackberry Hills was one of the best travel experiences we've ever had (and we are fussy Londoners who travel a lot)! The resort doesn't even feel like a hotel; our room was in its own little building; it felt like a luxury treehouse as it had a balcony with trees on one side and an...

Stunning location with great views over the tea plantations. Very peaceful. Adequate rooms although, as others have noted, some have partially obscured views from trees. Lots of activities to stay busy which are suited to more active visitors (trekking, yoga, etc.).

Blackberry Hills is set in an idyllic and scenic area of Munnar set high above the tea plantations. The cottages are spacious and private and the staff are helpful and kind.

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
