We keep coming back!
on Dec 21, 2017
This is our fifth visit to Royal Mist and every bit as enjoyable as our first visit some 9 years ago. God-Willing, it will not be our last. Anil and Jeeva a lovely professional couple with two grown up children are the perfect hosts and one reason we keep returning. There is also the ambience of
Chithirapuram which is very green and surrounded by forests and of course the tea estates. This is an ideal chill-out zone. Those coming from a cold country will appreciate the gentle acclimatisation. There is no air conditioning simply because the climate is such that you do not need it. This is an ideal place to arrive and a worthwhile 3-hour drive from the airport at Kochi. Transportation is easy with regular buses or an auto rickshaw. For longer distances, it seems that Anil can 'magic' up a really good driver at any time and even meet you at the airport.
Stay here, tour the area, take some tea, this is probably the easiest introduction you could possibly get if you are considering a trip to India. Try Royal Mist
Our favourite stay in India!
on Nov 30, 2017
Royal Mist was the perfect end to our three week trip in India. Anil and Jeeva were the most lovely, warm and genuine hosts and we loved every minute of our stay.
Our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean, the surroundings were stunning, and our welcome walk with Anil around the tea plantations was a great introduction to Munnar. When we first arrived, Jeeva rang us and asked if we'd like lunch - which was absolutely delicious! Our evening meal and breakfast were also amazing with loads of food and lovely local flavours :)
We also arranged transport with Anil and Jeeva which was easy and meant that we could make the most of our limited time in Munnar. Loved our day trip to the top station and tea museum!
Thanks so much for making this by far our favourite stay in India with the loveliest people. We will be back. Love from Abby and Nick x
Amazing stay with a lovely family

We had the most wonderful 3 nights here at Royal Mist. Anil and Jeeva are the most welcoming and kind people we have met in India and helped us with everything we needed. The food was so wonderful -we ate here all 3 nights and it was so tasty and lots of variety - great breakfasts too with fresh juices and fresh fruit alongside tasty Indian dishes. It really was a perfect and relaxing stay. The rooms were beautiful and clean with lovely bathrooms. Anil helped us organise a driver and a trip out into the tea plantations and up to the top station - it was so fabulous.
If you want a taste of real home life in India with incredible hospitality please visit Anil and Jeeva - it really has made our India experience!!!
The best homestay in India? :-)

Royal Mist was recommended to me by a friend who stayed here in 2010. And really glad she recommended it! Anil and Jeeva are the most wonderful hosts, super friendly, smiley and welcoming and so helpful. We also had great food and lots of laughs here, relaxing amidst the beautiful scenery. The only problem was we didn't want to leave! <3 Highly recommended.
Lovely home stay

We had a wonderful stay at Royal Mist. Anil and Jeeva are fantastic hosts. They have a lovely house that is perfectly located to visit the Munnar area and have a relaxed time. Jeeva’s Indian breakfasts were a particular highlight and we loved seeing lots of spices growing wild during Anil’s welcome walk around the area. Could not have been better.
