We started our tour through Kerela at the Crown Plaza Cochin, then stayed for two nights in Spice Village Athripolly . Crown Plaza was ok for the start and Spice Village was a lovely little hotel in the hills. Spice Tree here in Munnar we would never have found without local knowledge of the tour operator we used because this...

One of the nicest places we stayed during our 3 week trip to Southern India. The most comfortable room, possibly the best food. Top top service. Interesting distractions in the form of tea tasting and cooking lessons. Would definitely recommend. Thank you to all who made our stay so very pleasant.

Yes I think this place has just inched ahead of some stiff competition to rank as my favourite hotel in India. We stayed here for a couple of nights, almost by accident, 2 years ago and decided to come back this time for a full week. The trekking possibilities in the area seemed amply to justify a longer stay but...

This place was doing well until this morning when someone lit a fire. This was no small fire and the smoke and ash got everywhere. Not only that, the smoke polluted everything, clothes, rooms, lungs and if you suffer from asthma like I do, it was extremely uncomfortable. Added to this everywhere was covered in black ash from the burning...

The beds were unusually comfortable and the soaps etc were the best we had in India. Our 2 rooms both had roomy jacuzzis as well as showers. The service was excellent and personal. Early morning Yoga, ayurvedic massages and treks through the cardamon plantations to neolithic remains all added to our experience. This was topped by watching the sun go...

A beautiful boutique hotel set in an amazing location. The rooms are outstanding with attention to detail. Staff were knowledgable and very hospitable. Attended the Yoga classes in the morning which were very good. To sit outside on the balcony having our breakfast, breathing in the beautiful every morning was soul elevating.
