The place was awesome, the food was great, the service was friendly felt like home. The only reason i am not giving five star is for the water it had a chlorine smell it was uncomfortable. I hope the management does something about water because i am really looking forward to visit again!

Dear Guest, Namaskaram!!! Thank you for Choosing Hills and Hues - Luxury Boutique - Resort, Thekkady for your recent vacation. We really appreciate your real-time feedback, which is very helpful for us to check ourselves. Sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused, have escalated to the concerned to check water consistency on a daily basis. We are happy to see you appreciate the awesome place, great food, and excellent service of our team. Once again sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused. Normally hotels and apartments use chlorine as water is stored in large tanks, but maybe the ratio must have been a bit high on that day. This can be just a one-time incident; you can confidently come again and enjoy the place. Looking forward to welcoming you to the Hills & Hues hospitality for an amazing family holiday and assuring you of our best service and attention at all times. Thanks, and regards, Resort Manager

Dear Guest, Namaskaram!!! Thank you for Choosing Hills and Hues - Luxury Boutique - Resort, Thekkady for your recent holiday. We thank you so much for sparing a few minutes of your precious time to write a review for us. Delighted to see that you enjoyed the wonderful place, ambiance, and excellent service of our team. I hope you had a wonderful time watching the mist coming into the rooms and walking through the misty garden with dewdrops falling on you. Being winter using the pool is difficult, but the view will be amazing. In a cold place like Munnar, you need hot delicious food to keep you warm. Happy to hear that you enjoyed the yummy food. Looking forward to welcoming you back to the Hills and Hues for an amazing stay and assuring you of our best service and attention at all times. Thanks, and regards, Resort Manager

Amazing place to travel with family! Kid friendly, away from the noise, maddening tourist crowd, open to mother nature, clean, fresh, privacy and peace is how we will describe the stay. It was a 2N & 3D trip climate was at its best. Hospitality and service was top notch the drive up to the property itself is an experience on its own. Steep uphill is what I would describe the drive as to the property. Christmas cake, home-made wine and Santa dance was totally fun on Christmas eve. They were very kind enough to pack some breakfast on the day when we stepped out early(4AM) for the wildlife watch at Shatram because we were going to miss their breakfast on Christmas (worth the early morning wake up and drive). Our plan was never to visit the tourist spots but who can escape the periyar lake boat ride. It was planned on our last day assuming will not take more than 4hours. Inspite, of reaching the place at 5AM we had a long que of tourist so returned at 11:30AM to the property for our checkout. This was purely not our delay but that is when the hospitality missed few beats. We had to do a last minute fresh up/packing before we checked out. By then we would have got at least 5-6 reminders from the reception for our checkout. Not a complain but those calls made the other good things take a back seat. Anyways we were also late as we had a flight to catch at 5:45 at Madurai so we were anyways in a hurry to leave. The team should understand that pushing the guest on their last day of stay will build unwanted pressure when they are already running late. Food: totally yumm a little $$$ but it’s a hill station so can’t complain Service: On dot Hospitality: 100% (minus 20% due to the last one hour) But we as a family had a memorable stay and highly recommend Hills&Hues, Thekkady. The last day or rather last hour at Hills & Hues could have been due to peer work pressure or another guest coming in but still could have been managed well. Team Hills & Hues - you guys rock keep the smile and cheerful attitude going :)

Dear Guest, Namaskaram!!! Thank you for Choosing Hills and Hues - Luxury Boutique - Resort, Thekkady for your recent holiday. Many thanks for your real-time review, it is superb. Hills and Hues is a gateway to a getaway from the hustles and bustles of urban life to a chilling, peaceful, calm, and quiet lonely holiday. Drive up the hills is taken as an adventure ride by our guests. Nice to hear that it was an experience. Our team was successful in creating a Christmas ambiance with carol, Christmas cake, homemade wine, and a Santa dance. All of our guests kept complimenting it as a memorable Christmas Eve on a misty mountain top. Kudos to our team for providing an anticipatory service - even with the rush of Christmas day preparations they made sure that you did not miss the breakfast on a Christmas day. Periyar Tiger Reserve activities undertaken by forest. When we go for the boat ride, all of us want to be the 1st to reach there or ensure to book the tickets by online, but we end up in the long queue as many will reach much earlier than us. Apologies for the 11th-hour mishap where you felt the hospitality missed a few beats. We understand that you did not anticipate a delay, hence the bags are unpacked. Checkout was delayed as you took time to pack and freshen up, which left Reception in pressure being a full house day. We are much flexible if anyone request for late check-out but whenever the resort is full house, we have to be stick on the timings. As per the Covid protocol is time-consuming for room cleaning for other after check-out. Its only the reason Reception kept calling you. Looking forward to welcoming you to the Hills & Hues hospitality for an amazing holiday and assuring you of our best service and attention at all times. Thanks, and regards, Resort Manager

Everything about this place is 'wow'. We stayed here for a couple of nights over the Christmas weekend at one of the cottages. The views were breathtaking and waking up to misty mornings was an out of the world experience. The staff are all bright, enthusiastic, friendly and courteous. They sang Christmas carols at our door on Christmas eve which we thought was a great added touch. We enjoyed the breakfast buffets and the dinners. The views from wherever you choose to stroll around the property are outstanding with the infinity pool area being the best. This place gives you a feeling of seclusion as it is on a hill with a narrow road going up to it but at the same time it is very close to nearby attractions like Periyar Sanctuary and Spice plantations . Highly recommended this place.

Thanks a million for your fantastic review, we all are thrilled to read your feedback.
