Ambady Estate Munnar
Chalets in the Clouds, Munnar
Munnar
INTRODUCTION There is something simple yet very very appealing about Chalets in the Clouds in Munnar. These twin cottages in Munnar are breathtakingly beautiful. Is it the lush plantation with birdsong in the background, the warm hues of the wooden chalets or the doctor who is passionate about organic farming? Dr Rajesh and his wife are warm hosts at this twin cottages in Munnar who welcome you at the old smokehouse cum reception with their special herbal tea. The idea of a luxury bed and breakfast in Munnar germinated when Rajesh came to look at the cardamom estate inherited from his father. The abundant natural beauty struck him and he decided to stay on to give his children the benefit of growing up in a wholesome environment. Under the management of conscious Rajesh, the plantation moved to organic farming. The yield has fallen because of this transition but the ecologically aware Rajesh says it’s not important in the larger scheme of things. Pepper, coffee and fruits are also grown on the seventy acre estate. ROOMS & SERVICE This luxury bed and breakfast in Munnar has four twin cottages that can also be used as eight independent rooms. The spacious rooms are built on split levels with the bedroom and bathroom on a lower level to the living area. The latter has comfortable seating, a television, a mini fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. Wood has been used extensively for the interiors giving it a pretty chalet look. All the cottages have a lovely view of the valley and you can lie in bed looking at the gorgeous view. Meals here in these cottages in Kerala are served in a pretty thatched structure made from wood of local trees. The food is mainly a mix of Kerala and European cuisines. These cottages in Munnar have an adorably honest and down to earth appeal.

Evergreen, Mundayakam
Thekkady
Succulent local cuisine, charming hosts, an art deco bungalow, all amidst a rubber plantation. INTRODUCTION The first thing that strikes visitors is that the house seems to be out of place in a quiet Kerala rubber plantation. Though there are bigger plantation houses in the area, Evergreen has an unusual design. A mix of colonial bungalow style and Art Deco elements, this homestay in Thekkady provokes curiosity about its history. As you wander inside, you see a horseshoe shaped dining table and your curiosity grows. Not to worry, you can get your questions answered by the extremely affable host, George Abraham. He is passionate about the history of plantations in Kerala and has authored a book on the subject with another due soon. ROOMS George is the fifth generation of his family to manage the 100 acre plantation. He lives at Evergreen with his soft-spoken wife Anju, a daughter and son. Built in 1955, it is a comfortable homestay in Thekkady with plenty of space and light. They have kept renovations to the minimum so that the character of the house is intact. The two rooms meant for guests are large and furnished with lovely old wooden furniture. The rooms are interconnected so it is perfect for a family with children or a group of friends. One of the bedrooms has an air-conditioner. The rooms lead out to a private verandah meant for guests. The house also has a large porch at the entrance, which is a great place to relax with a book or look at the soothing greenery.  The bathroom fittings are rather old fashioned in keeping with the colonial feel but are spotless and spacious. SERVICE While George will feed your mind, Anju keeps the body going with great food. Her repertoire of Kerala dishes is authentic and delicious but she can tone it down or up depending on the guests’ palate. Guests are welcome to watch the cooking. This homestay in Thekkady makes a great stop over to relax on the way to the hills of Munnar and Thekkady or on the return journey to Kochi. Since they take in only one set of guests at a time, they are free to help with information about the area and plan activities Destination Guide - Kerala - BackwatersSucculent local cuisine, charming hosts, an art deco bungalow, all amidst a rubber plantation.

Eagle’s Retreat, Thekkady
Thekkady
INTRODUCTION Rather than a fairy tale beginning, Eagle's Retreat started with a tale of a lost cow. One evening, a cow went missing on Simon’s newly acquired coffee plantation. He found it late at night in an uncleared area but couldn’t move it since it had hurt its leg. Next morning when Simon went back, he saw that this wild patch of the plantation had the most stunning view of the hills. In a masterstroke, he decided to combine the hospitality project with his love for antiques. Simon’s wife, Maria efficiently manages the bookings and interactions with guests before they arrive. Simon shuttles between his house in the plains and the plantation while Roy, the affable manager resides full time and is very helpful. LOCATION Today, this hotel in Thekkady has an unusual array of heritage cottages transplanted onto the hillside. Each cottage is a restored traditional Kerala house, made mostly of wood. The wooden style continues into the bathrooms and some even have an open courtyard. Care has been taken to see that modern fittings blend well with the surroundings. Simon has furnished the cottages with antique style furniture. Privacy is the best feature that this hotel in Thekkady has to offer. The location is up on a hill in Thekkady enroute to Periyar Tiger Reserve from Kottayam. It takes a while to get to this charming luxury bed & breakfast in Thekkady through a steep winding path from the main road. Once here in this hotel in Thekkady, the view is amazing as it is right on the edge of the valley. There is nothing between you and the forested mountains on the opposite side. ROOMS & SERVICE It may be hard to turn your back on the panoramic view from the verandah of your cottage.  But it is completely worth your while as the food is as good as the view. The walk between the villas and the restaurant with several steps cut into the hilly terrain is probably the only activity that some guests will ever do at Paradisa. For others, the estate walk is a great way to explore the hilltop property. The restaurant is an open structure with a thatched roof that is remade every year. The food is primarily Kerala cuisine with some delicious innovations. The staff here in this hotel in Thekkady can help if any food preferences have to be managed. All this makes Eagle's retreat the best  of Thekkady resorts with swimming pool.Boutique resort with restored traditional cottages on a hill overlooking the Western Ghats. Breathtaking views from the finest of Thekkady resorts with swimming pool.
