I spent 1 month in India and this was my favourite place. First of all, Munnar - it's so beautiful! As someone else said, it's like living inside a postcard. Kaivalyam is 6 Km before you reach Munnar, set on a cliffside, surrounded by tea and cardamom plantations. As previously said, a spectacular setting! My friend enjoyed the nature walks...

Our stay at Kaivalyam was splendid. We loved every moment we had spent here. The room size was big, we were with kids and hence it was a big size room, nice clean bathroom, although not ultimate on finishing but the bathrooms were clean and hygienic. A glass on the bathing area would be great so that the remaining bathroom...

It is totally worth the excellent reviews. The rooms are clean and spacious. The calmness of this place is therapeutic. If it's Munnar it must be this place.

We absolutely loved Kaivalyam Retreat! We arrived here after 5 weeks of traveling through India and we were ready for the quiet and tranquil environment. The original booking was for the 2 day hiking package staying in a tree house. The tree house was a cool experience. It offers amazing views of the forest and is private. We enjoyed reading...

We stayed for just a day and had a wonderful time. The room was clean and nice. Particularly good was the food which was not only very tasty but also healthy and light on the stomach. Since we are vegan, Mr. Harish went out of his way to organise tea with cashew milk for us during our stay there which...

From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, we were very well taken care of by the staff.

At first I was bit apprehensive about jeep ride from main road to the stay. However that turned out to be most fun part - especially with my kids fighting to sit in the backseat of the jeep. First impression was great - exactly as per reviews mentioned at Tripadvisor. Nevertheless, that impression sustained throughout the trip. Food was outstanding...
