This traditional Kerala style Bungalow is located right in the wilderness of Munnar hills. Its layout blended harmoniously with the local carpentry, steeply pitched tile roofs decorated with simple and neat gables, inward cut verandahs and contoured ledges forming the front facing east make Kollenkeril bungalow a very private space who loves privacy and relaxation. Welcome to Kollenkeril Plantation Home-stay Bungalow.

I booked two rooms (really, they ended up being two huge bungalows attached to the house) at this plantation house because of the great reviews and photos. Although, photos don't do it justice. The views, the house, the host, the grounds, the wildlife, and the cleanliness are all outstanding. Make sure you take the plantation tour with Joseph and plan to eat your dinner there too (for less than $10 for dinner, it's a huge home-cooked meal with locally sourced Kerala ingredients). Go to Kerala, it's beautiful and fully recovered from the monsoon of 2018. And stay at this property (if a sister property is offered, decline the offer, this is where you want to stay) you won't regret it!!

We stayed 2 nights at the Kollenkeril plantation Homestay. The room was so comfortable and the views were fantastic. It was wonderful to be woken in the morning by the Malabar Whistling Thrush and the other birds just outside the window. The plantation is large and it’s so interesting to take a walk around and see all the different spices being grown here. The food was delicious and the staff friendly.

We had a wonderful two days here. We were made to feel very welcome by Joseph, who arranged a driver to show us the tea plantations and several other of the many beauty spots in the local area. Our tour of the farm with Joseph was one of the highlights; it produces so many spices and is beautifully situated; the homegrown coffee is very good. Joseph's brother, James, prepared delicious Keralan food for us. Kind and charming staff and a really good stay.

We spent a night as a family of 2 adults and 3 children and stayed in the family room. We really enjoyed the unique view of the mountains and being surrounded by the green nature. The host, Joseph was also very hospitable and offered us a tour of the plantation, the food was really delicious and the place was really peaceful and perfect to relax. We wished we could have stayed longer.

We stayed here for 3 days, far too short, and can only recommend this amazing halt far from the madding crowd. First of all, you meet Benny in the village before moving up to the bungalow, a very professional reception... the rooms are comfortable (and some), the view is breathtaking. The caretaker family are absolutely fantastic, welcoming and friendly and on hand for anything you need - and do take advantage of a tour around the plantation, it is fascinating. The breakfast and evening meals were perfect and delicious too. In short, an ideal landing point for visiting Munnar and the surrounding area.

Spent 3 nights here- 2 families as part of a holiday to Kerala. It was a memorable home away from home experience. We were all very looked after by the team of Joseph, his brother James and Eldos. The property has fantastic views all round and a spice plantation, for good measure. Food was divine including a barbecue on our last day. Will be back again. Thank you.

The property is well surrounded by greenery and vegetation (spices) and its definitely a plus when it comes to location. And the tree house gives us a unique viewing experience from the top. Having said that, don't expect any spectacular views from top of it though. I would say it was okey and definitely not excellent when it comes to what you see from your rooms. Food was very good and satisfactory. Thumbs up for the chef and the team who takes care of the hospitality. Overall its a good place to stay without much complaints. At the end of it we felt the experience can still be better for the price we pay when compared to similar other properties.

This is the place to stay if you want to imbibe the fantastic views of Munnar. Away from the hustle and bustle of the town yet on the NH, the traditional plantation house has lovely wood panelled rooms with their own verandas. And ideal resort to book if two or three families are travelling together and you can have the place to your selves. Ask for the Appam and Ishtew and whatever you fancy. Joseph and his brother take excellent care.

We spent three wonderful days and nights at Kollenkeril. Joseph and his staff, including his brother who is a fine cook, couldn't have been more solicitous. Joseph, who is a first-rate agronomist also found the time to take us through his "plantation" surrounding the bungalow. Our room was very comfortable, including the beds, and the bathroom was clean as can be. We'd give it an excellent plus review if that was possible.
