I stayed in this tata guest house along with family and we had memorable stay there. The food prepared is tasty though the choice is limited.It is preferred for the people who have their own transport and prefer solitude.

Stayed with family at one of the bungalows ( Mattu patty) . All the bungalows are erstwhile colonial residences occupied by the europian managers of the tea estates.And all of them are located in spectacular and tranquil locales.But this is not the place for fun lovers, it's for having a peaceful time with yourself and your loved ones. Food is...

John Buchan said "Trying to see something solid in the mists is the whole fun of life, and most of its poetry" and no place is this is more pronounced than in the bungalows nestled amidst the tea estates of The Tea Sanctuary - Munnar. Another lovely colonial mansion converted into a retreat for the restless soul. Munnar is a...

My friend discovered this place and she was quite excited to be there on the basis of reviews. We checked few other options in munnar city before we finally proceeded to this place. She was bit scared as to how we will react as it was outside city and feeling was bit scary during late night. But the moment we...

Initially, I had booked it for staying in May 2013. Due to some unavoidable reasons, I could not make the trip and had to drop travelling plans in the...

The location is outstanding, bang in the middle of tea plantations. The experience is truly one of a kind. That said, for the price you pay, clearly a lot more is expected. Firstly, the weather; We went in the first week of September, when the tourist season was yet to start. It did rain quite a bit, mostly in the...

The Tea Sanctuary is a division of KDHP (Kannan Devan Hills Plantations) which is basically owned by the TATA Tea division. KDHP basically owns 85% of the tea plantations here in Munnar. They have different tea estates and each has a bungalow in it. Originally they were meant for the tea plantation managers. But due to the modernisation over the...

Our Tea Sanctuary experience was definitely not what we expected - it was better and worse in equal measure! We had thought that the different Tea Sanctuary bungalows would be close to each other, with some sort of central reception building, but our bungalow was completely isolated and information was hard to come by! While this was a bit unsettling...

It's probably the cheaper of the many tea estates that offered accommodation. The European style house was manned by a team of housekeepers. The room was indeed very large for me a solo traveller, which came with a large bedroom and sitting room, a dress-up room and a shower/toilet. The place was indeed filled with old-world charm and therefore in...

“Since this is a bungalow, depending on whom you are travelling with ask for a room that guarantees privacy and is away from other travellers.”

“If you are travelling with kids and small children, then go for a bungalow that's nearer to the town in case of any medical emergency.”

“Sevenmallay has three bedrooms - we had the first one on the left, which opens straight onto the communal conservatory (the door has a lock and curtains for privacy though!)”
  • Sevenmallay bath - a bit offputting but the stains were from age rather than dirt I think!
  • Sevenmallay bathroom (bedroom 1)
  • Sevenmallay conservatory - rather odd, lots of chairs!
  • Sevenmallay bedroom 1 - big and very old-fashioned!
  • Sevenmallay Bungalow - beautiful garden!

“Ask for the one that has the valley view. They are all well appointed and comfy but this is the only one with a view. It also gets the early morning sun, that is the alarm clock.”
  • Contrasting colours
  • Endless vistas of tea
  • Mist in the valley
