10km from Munnar town, down winding hilltop roads with spectacular views, Royal Mist Homestay is owned by Mr. Anil and his family. This particularly close knit family with two children aged 14 and 19 are incredibly hospitable, welcoming guests as part of the family, whilst allowing them as much independence as they desire. The separate area of the guests' rooms occupies the top floor of this modern house with an upstairs terrace, which looks out onto the valley and hills extending into the distance.

A really lovely homestay. Beautiful balcony overlooking a lovely garden - great for bird watching, comfortable rooms and a good location close to Munnar and for walking to a nearby tea plantation.
Jeeva and Anil were excellent friendly hosts and made us very welcome and we enjoyed a delightful early evening circular walk with them past a cardamom plantation and through tea plantations.
Would highly recommend

Royal Mist is a home away from home set in the lush mountains of Munnar. Jeeva and Anil are exceptional hosts - warm, helpful and friendly. They go above and beyond to make your stay memorable. We already miss their cooking! The highlight is the personal nature walk hosted by Anil through the surrounding tea plantations and sharing his local insights and knowledge. Also, having dinner on the balcony with those views is something quite magical, especially when the sun is setting.

FEATURES:
Spacious bedroom and bathroom;
Room is clean and immaculate;
Free wifi;
Hot showers;
Air conditioning;
Felt safe and secure;
Personal nature walk;
Amazing cooking (seriously the best);
Incredible views.

I would stay here again.

*We booked our accommodation through Reverence Tours, who custom designed our South India itinerary to meet our travel needs and budget. They have long-standing relationships with local homestays such as Royal Mist and private drivers. Quite renowned for being the tour specialists of South India. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

The Royal Mist really was the highlight of our three week stay in Kerala.
It exceeded all our expectations; from the moment we arrived, we were met with such warmth which continued throughout our stay. We were taken on a nature walk the day we arrived - Jeeva and Anil are so passionate and knowledgable about the beautiful surroundings in which they live.
Guest rooms are on a separate level to their lovely home, giving privacy but also a lovely homely feel.
The rooms were super clean and had absolutely everything we needed.
Meals were served to us on the veranda - these were all home cooked and absolutely delicious. Having a cooking class with Jeeva added a lovely touch to our stay!
Nothing was too much trouble for Jeeva and Anil, we would highly recommend staying here!! An absolute must.

My partner and I stayed at Royal Mist for a couple of days. We were so pleased we found such a wonderful place. We were warmly welcomed by Anil & Jeeva.

The guest rooms are on the top floor with separate external entrances and with an outstanding view .The rooms were spotless with very comfortable beds.

We went for a walk with the hosts to see the tea plantations and we were extremely lucky enough to see the elephants in the wild on the way to Top station.
The food provided to us was delicious and plentiful.

If you want a great place to stay with genuinely lovely hosts then this is the place for you.
Thank you so much Anil & Jeeva for the memories and wonderful time. Xx

A perfect little retreat for travellers to the tea plantations of Kerala near Munnar is this friendly homestay in the hills. Jency and Anil are wonderful hosts and make sure their guests are well fed at mealtimes with beautiful fresh produce cooked by Jency in their kitchen, and delivered to a shared table with wonderful views. There are only 3 rooms so mealtimes you can meet other travellers and share stories of your adventures. Anil and his son took us for a terrific circuit walk (a bit steep) very near their home for some stunning scenery in and near the plantations. Our room had everything we needed, tea is offered on your arrival back from trips and they are happy to put drinks in a fridge if needed. Highly recommended for your stay in Munnar, we felt very much at home. Thank you Jency and Anil.

We had a lovely and very peaceful three day stay with Anil and Jeeva who were the most helpful and accommodating hosts. The homestay is on a quiet road away from the main highway but close by to the amenities of the local town and a 20 minute rickshaw ride from Munnar. There are some delightful walks in the tea plantations nearby on which Jeeva kindly accompanied us on the day we arrived and she can also arrange treks further afield and visits to the local attractions. The room was very comfortable and a delicious breakfast was included every morning. We can highly recommend a few days stay here and actually wished that we had stayed longer. Thank you Anil and Jeeva and we hope to see you again sometime in the future.

Stayed at Royal Mist for 2 nights from 28th March to 30th March 2024.
Greeted most warmly by the owners, Jeeva and Anil.
Shown to our room, (there are 3 rooms available) and a shared terrace area with stunning views.
Tea and cookies brought up to us soon after we arrived.
All meals served at the communal table (no one else was staying at the time, so we had the area to ourselves).
Food was delicious and plentiful. We were half board, but if you wanted lunch, this could be ordered for a small sum of 200 rupees.
No air conditioning, but fan worked well!
Local shop very close by where we purchased bottles of water and soft drinks at a very low cost.
On our 2nd evening, Jeeva and Anil took us out for a walk around their local area, through the tea plantations and were very friendly, chatty and informative about all the plants and wildlife. It was a lovely walk and our hosts were wonderful.
Jeeva presented me with a birthday gift when we left, which was so unexpected and such a kind gesture.
We had a wonderful time and the views of the tea plantations are stunning. Would recommend this homestay wholeheartedly.

Thank you so much to Anil and Jeeva for a lovely peaceful stay in Munnar. Our rooms were comfortable, well equipped and private, and it was amazing to wake up to the beautiful rainforest sounds and view.
We would strongly recommend the nature walk and another highlight was Jeeva's cooking demonstration, where she showed us how to make a wide variety of delicious authentic dishes.
Anil and Jeeva you were so helpful and welcoming, thank you for the wonderful memories!

Wonderful homestay. Anil and Jeeva could not have hosted us better. We went for the Splendours of Munnar package which was great value. Actually stayed 4 nights, they arranged cars to fetch us from kochi and take us to Thekkady afterwards as well as arranging trips and all our wonderful meals on our own outdoor terrace

We really enjoyed our stay at the home of Anvil and Jeeva from the wonderful welcome of tea and biscuits and a lovely circular walk up the hill through a tea plantation before supper on the balcony.
The breakfast was excellent each day with a choice of dhosa, omelette, toast, juice etc and supper was plentiful and delicious. Nothing was too much trouble, even chilling our beers in the kitchen!
The room was clean and well equipped with a good shower. There are 3 rooms off the balcony which is large enough to read on the sofas and eat at the table enjoying the views.
The house is out of town but it is a nice scenic drive and, for us, good to be away from the hustle and bustle. We stayed for 3 nights.
We would highly recommend a stay with this very friendly and welcoming couple.
