My sister and I traveled through Kerala before attending a friend's wedding in Hyderabad. We read so many great things about Munnar so we wanted to experience it but we also wanted to be off the beaten path. Royal Mist is perfect for that because it is easy to take the public bus into Munnar town but the homestay's location is quiet, peaceful, and scenic. Since dinners are not included, we decided to add them and we were not disappointed. The food is incredible and the service is excellent. We ate outside in the covered dining area where we watched the rain fall and enjoyed the serenity. Jeeva and Anil are wonderful hosts and we especially loved playing with their pug, Ricky.
We trekked through nearby cardamom and tea plantations with Anil where we saw huge jackfruit. We really enjoyed this experience. We were supposed to go trekking the next day with a tour guide based out of Munnar but I became sick so we had to cancel- Jeeva went out of her way to make sure I was taken care of. She brought up ginger tea and oral rehydration tablets another traveler left behind. I was touched by her thoughtfulness- but that is the kind of hospitality and warmth you will find at Royal Mist.
We highly recommend this homestay to anyone traveling to the Munnar region!More
