Paradise on Earth... Pleasant Stay... Great Hospitality
on Apr 2, 2019
I still cherish the moments I had spent in this lovely place...
I had visited this Resort Twice... I would say it is my best stay in India...
1. The best place to admire nature, the construction and design of the resort is pretty awesome that you land up on the top floor to park your vehicle.
2. Lush green tea estate, the beautiful view of lakes, mountains wrapped in clouds, the topmost resort in that locality, the list goes on... If you are a nature lover, you can't miss this place.
3. Beautiful birds, sounds of nature in the early morning and late nights, adds up to the beauty of this place.
4. Exceptionally friendly and caring staff.
5. Homely food.
1. This place takes a minimum of 45 mins from the heart of Munnar Town.
2. Roads are kinda challenging to drive an ordinary car, and the last 1 km stretch you can't drive without an SUV (But don't worry, if you call the manager he will arrange you a vehicle for the last stretch, He helped us the same way)
3. You need to drive for at least 20 mins to find a shop for any purpose.
But I would suggest that if you are kind of person who wanna roam all over the city, then you can find better options. But if you are a person who looking for a pleasant stay in one place with morning and evening walk, nature admirer. This is exactly the place you have to visit. Manager Mr.Saju was the most friendly guy I ever met. He takes care of every request we ask for, I took my father who had recently undergone some major surgery, they were very courteous enough to take care of all our specific needs. So it's family friendly for sure. And the prices are pretty reasonable.
I will surely visit again.
Mind blowing beauty and amazing staff

The place is 23 km from munnar city and the last couple of kilometers to this place were rough. There are a few routes that lead to the site so be sure to contact the hotel manager for directions well before u reach munnar city. The place is quite remote. No other resorts nearby. Surrounded by tea gardens and forests and naked mountains in the back drop and a lake and valley view in front which is to die for. This property has one two bedroom suite and four other rooms. All rooms are beautifully done and have the same spectacular view. Places to see nearby are the kollukumalai peak and tea estate. This is a one hour off road Jeep ride and we were told the sunrise and view from here ( can see Tamil Nadu on one side and Kerala on the other side of the peak) is much more beautiful than the ones nearer to the town. Other attractions are the lake but we were content walking around the resort in the nearby tea gardens and cardamon fields. The owner of the nearby campsite and fields, a gentleman named Mr Robert was kind enough to give us a tour and treated us to fresh cardamoms and oranges from his orchards. Coming to the stay, we couldn't be happier with the room and service. The food is simple but fresh and delicious. most vegetables were organic and grown right there in front of the hotel, the menu is limited but Mr Matthews was most kind to make any changes as per our taste. Breakfast is hearty and complementary. They feed you with so much love , you feel like u r their personal guest. We had the live chicken and vegetable barbecue one night and Mr Anthony was most attentive and dilligent and took care of us for more than 2 hrs on his feet. Last but not the least Mr saju, the manager was always at service, most polite and helpful. Thank you guys for the wonderful experience. We recommend this place completely to anyone who appreciates a peaceful and quaint location far from the hustle and likes a personal touch ..
The best for the price paid

The rocky road to Capithans Bungalow was well worth it. The room was large, quiet, and serene. We had a huge private balcony overlooking the scenic beauties of Kerala which was perfect for morning yoga. The staff was very accommodating with fast food service and even laundry service. We felt so comfortable with the friendly staff. There are also beautiful hikes with set trails in the nearby tea plantations you can walk to.

Place with a crazy view. People are nice and always ready to help. Some small things can be improved but nevertheless it’s great I recommend it. There are great hikes around and apparently you can get with a Jeep on a high peak from here
