The Kaivalayam Retreat is a lovely hotel. We took my in-laws there for a vacation, and the staff was so helpful and attentive. Their attention to detail is extraordinary, and they made sure we had a wonderful experience. Would definitely return!

I loved every minute! - there are some serious hills around if you want to challenge yourself to a bit of a walk or run... and the sound of birds & insects is magical

The owner was very helpful. Have to be careful when you take turn. They will bring their own vehicle. Yoga, clean food, water has made the stay memorable. The owner is too humble and helpful.

Splendid facility and surroundings
Kaivalayam is a fantastic resort on a mountainside of tea plantations and spices. We were delighted with the reception, our room, the surroundings, the yoga sessions and the meals. Our only complaint was no hot water for showering.

We stayed 2 nights at the beautiful tree house complex with a tree growing inside the room. We signed up for yoga in both mornings, as well as the tea tasting class. Harish was a great teacher and the sessions were informative and fun! The walk in the tea garden was amazing, too bad we didn't get the chance to stroll around the spice garden. Overall we had an amazing stay at Kaivalayam Retreat, Harish and his wonderful staff really went out of their way to make us feel welcome, would love to come back. Thank you so much!

Amazing property in God's own country
This place offers the most exocitic experience of living inside jungle with great amenities. It's not like a regular hotel or resort it's and experience. You can hear the birds chirping the sound of river from your rooms balcony. The food is amazing too, they encourage vegetarian food and promotes yoga and meditation, infact there are free yoga and meditation session and few more activities too. The hosts are amazing and work hard to make your stay special. Thanks

Cozy and relaxing stay
Best choice in munnar for vegetarian families. Stay here with a good book for three days and forget the world. The activities offered by staff are good. Food is best, tasty and hygienic.

Beautiful rooms and grounds with free activities
The hotel and surrounding tea plantations are so peaceful and beautiful. The hotel staff were so helpful and welcoming and arrange a schedule of free activities such as yoga, bird watching and cooking classes free of charge as well as help with organising other things to do. Our room was very nice with a separate seating area and lovely view but I would like to come back and stay in one of the tree houses they look amazing but were fully booked. They serve vegetarian food which was nice but a little bland, not quite as tasty as some of the meals we had elsewhere. Indian breakfast was good though and changed every day. Definitely recommended.

Best way to enjoy Munnar
I chose this hotel because it was within our budget and had great reviews. But I was a bit skeptical since it was called a yoga retreat, which meant to me too many activities I wouldn’t be interested in and forced community building. However my experience was far from it. Location – The resort is located around 5 kms from Munnar bus stand and very close to the Pallivasal Tea Estate. A narrow lane goes downward from the main road and leads to the hotel. This road is quite steep at places and wide enough for only one vehicle. And the hotel staff suggest you to call for their jeep to take you down this distance. Ambience – The rooms are located in two floors of two buildings placed side by side on the hill. There are also some tree houses further down. The place is completely surrounded with tall trees giving it a forest feel. Rooms – We stayed in Luxury room which was in one of the main building. Tree houses were priced higher, so we went with this. The room was equipped with all amenities and decorated tastefully. The view from the window was absolutely beautiful, which could be enjoyed from seating area inside or outside balcony. Food – They have a different menu every day with a few choice for starter, main course, desert etc. As a yoga retreat they don’t allow non-veg and alcohol. So all items were vegetarian. But the food was quite tasty. Staffs & Activities – Activities were great and staffs were extremely amicable. Their simplicity made us feel very comfortable.

Un excellent rapport qualité prix
Nous avons passés 2 nuits et avons été particulièrement touché par la gentillesse et le professionnalisme de toute l'équipe. L'endroit est superbe. Les cours de Yoga, la restauration... Tout était mis en oeuvre pour nous satisfaire. Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir dans cet hôtel.
