If you want to get away from It all this is a great escape. Absolutely beautiful location watching the clouds dance throughout the day. The resort staff are fabulous and more than willing to greet with a smile and to help with anything. The resort was not a 4 star compared to most standards, but it was clean and quiet which is what makes up for the other things. Bed was comfy. Bathroom water took quite a while to get hot.
Do the morning walk with Shihab. He is energetic and totally knowledgeable and passionate to teach you about the spices and Bamboo in the area. I very much enjoyed the walk with him.
One note as a solo traveller, it is a decent distance from anything so you will need to hire a driver or taxi to get to Munnar town where you could join tours. Also being there in low session there were no tours running because they needed a minimum of 2 people, so if nobody signed up it wasn't a go. Private day tours run 2000 rupees so it added up very quickly.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Munnar's new resort is one that gives back to Munnar, much more than what it took up to construct. Rivulet is situated not too high, not too low, just about at the right level. This makes the stay a far more fascinating experience with the sun warming your back while your face is graced with cool breeze. Calling the resort 'eco-friendly' will be an understatement. With more than 20 acres of lush, fertile land, Rivulet's built up area for its cottages is less than a quarter. So be it a moment in the evening where you sulk into the comforts of nature with a book in hand and coffee on the table or a physically exhilarating morning when you paddle down rivers and climb up hills, Rivulet is the place to be at.And that's because Rivulet is not just a resort. It is a concept. An experienceStretch out from your comfortable bed, slide the glass door and step onto the balcony. Grasp a view of the chilly heavens up above the hills. Hear the soothing flow of the waters that slithers up to the rooms through moving trees.Every premium cottage room at Rivulet (24 in all) comes with an expansive living room space, a sit-out facing the river and the hills. At Rivulet, "the view" is complimentary for one and all. The cottages, consisting of two rooms have been given the names of spices. Each room within the spice villas will have a characteristic touch of their respective spice names. All necessary modern amenities with a luxurious king size bed awaits those entering the spice villas. Rivulet also offers deluxe rooms (12 in all), where the view is not billed and comfort not compromised. ... more less
