Travellers' Choice
Monsoon Retreats is situated in the midst of thick cardamom plantation where we had tried to blend Agro cum Ecotourism. Here we desired to spread agricultural awareness along with ecological service. Nights are serene which gives you the real essence of jungle where one sleeps under the lullaby of Cicadas. Ecotourism initiative. Carbon neutral stay. Sustainable and Responsible Tourism for Biodiversity Conservation. Good Birding area. Out of 330 birds at Periyar Tiger Reserve, 80 species including endemics are found at Monsoon Retreats Ecostay.

It's time to write up a little long review about Monsoon Retreats Ecostay, Thekkady. That we went in April 2021,as 13members of our family. From welcoming till we check out all the guidance was given by property owner cum wildlife researcher Subish. That was really great and we had special tea made from organic spices taken from same place(Because the stay is inside the Cardomom Field) was just awesome. It is basically a treehouse stay with separate dining hall. It was not a hotel food but we had a nice home cooked breakfast and dinner, it's really really Good try there. Heard and felt the dev drops on nights, if u are a nature lover or planning for a very refreshing stay then you will love the Nature's sound it's a gifted nature stay. And Subish's guidance for sight seeing plans and arrangements was excellent, because we don't know anything in Thekkady before. And here in thekkady if we won't start earlier in the morning we will miss out more things, if we miss the time Subish will watsapp us like "it's time to go bro :)". I didn't see anyone before like this much caring. In our stay we had campfires, barbecues.This is fully a nature based stay with nature sounds. So, definitely it is a must try stay if u are planning for Thekkady Vacation.

As the name suggest it's really an ecostay, resides near to the Kumily town but still you won't feel anyway near by town, such a good ambience and tranquility. The cottages are lifted above almost 12-15 feet above the ground without affecting the ecosystem. Underneath the cottage it's cardamom plantations. Subish the owner of Monsoon Retreats later turned out to be a good friend of mine is a great wildlife enthusiast and a conservationist. I would recon the ecostay those who wants to get rid of their busy lifestyle, take a break blend into the nature and everything slows down & soothe. This is my second visit to the retreats. Malabar whistling thrush make sure to give you a wakeup call in the morning. You might get a chance to see different varieties of birds and amphibians. The cottages are nice and tidy with all the basic amenities. Lovely place. Will visit again.

Just a cute little place to blend yourself right in the forest! We loved our stay here at Monsoon Retreats. The cottages are high above and below all you can see are the cardamon plantations...they grow so many veggies and fruits here and all that makes its way on to our plates. Subish's mom is the most amazing host - her dishes were lip smacking and so homely! She would come around ensure we are all well fed and taken care of. Shibin and Irshad are also hands on running around to make sure we are all ok. Would have loved to have some nice filter coffee :)

An amazing eco stay. We could feel the vibrancy of the plantation n hear chirping of birds. An excellent location enthusiastic host (subhish n his mom both) and tranquility. You can see cardamom plants jack fruits and pepper around your room. Raised construction gives a feel of tree house.
