Lodgings are humble but clean and comfortable. The view is beautiful and the staff are friendly and helpful, The excellent tour of the tea plantations that we took was organised by the staff and left from the front gate of the guest house. Highly recommended!

Stayed four nights in early January 2016 on our bike tour of Kerala. Hosts Gowri and Raja very welcoming and helpful. Beautiful veiws of tea plantations and the hills behind with pretty walks from the cottage door. Nice garden with hammocks to snooze in. Lovely and plentiful Keralan dishes cooked by Gowri that just kept coming. Rooms pretty and comfortable,...

Zina in the best place to stay in Munnar. The location is perfect: right in the middle of a tea plantation with gorgeous serene views, set away from the noise of central Munnar town, yet just a short tucktuck ride from the center of town. The place has running hot water, great food, a beautiful garden with hammocks, and is...

Gowri is an amazing cook, and a wonderful personality. Raja is super attentive and eager to help you with whatever you need. The cottage itself is very homey, and in the heart of the tea plantation, near enough to see wild elephants roaming on the hills around. Definitely recommend a stay hear.

Raga and Gowri are an amaizing couple! They are very helpful with everything: arranging tours, calling a riksha...and making delicouse authentic meals. Rooms are tidy with hot water. Make sure you get the room facing the garden and the amaizing view to the tea plantations. We had A GREAT time!

Quiet, magnificent vistas, a garden to rest in, caretaker couple gets you taxis and tuk-tuks, wifi on terrace, basic amenities..not fancy, very reasonable rates, great food at night around long table on the terrace. Tea bushes grow right up to the front gate. Did I mention the magnificent views. Worth that alone.

What this guesthouse lacks in comfort (can be cold, limited hot water) it compensates with price, welcoming hosts and perfect location on the hills with a nice view. Interesting crowd of fellow travelers is a bonus. Mind that you will probably be charged for all the niceties (like a cup of tea) though ;)

We stayed here one night and loved it - a peaceful haven in the hills with great views and some welcome quiet after a night in Munnar town. The room was good and we had hot water - WiFi decent but only works in the shaded terrace. Gowry and Raja are amazing hosts, great cooks and lots of fun -...
