Situated eight kilometers from Munnar, Tea Plantation & Valley View Room, a homestay offers views that most may not have seen. The property’s location is a bit of a trek to get to, as the nearest space to park your vehicle is a three-minute walk away. What you lose in walking, you make up for with exquisite views.
The room to be occupied is on the first floor of the building and overlooks rolling hills and tea plantations as far as the eye can see. There is a bedroom, a bathroom, and a balcony to admire the view. Moving inside, the bedroom looks just as vibrant as the hills outside; bright blue walls, warm brown floors, white French windows that open onto the balcony, and a king-size double bed. Amenities-wise there’s Wi-Fi, TV, hot water on tap, and even homely food on request, thanks to the homeowners living below.
Organising a campfire and going on an off-road jeep safari are just some of the activities they’ve done for guests so far. They’ve also got an optional cooking class, where they can teach you how to cook local cuisine! Outside of guided activities, you’ll have plenty of trails and walks to go on. If you’re the outdoorsy type you can rent bikes to explore the hills.
We like this property not just for its views and bedroom, but also because of how many things there are to do here. Stay for one night comes up to about INR 1885. For that reason, we recommend this property to budget travelers and travelers looking to stay a while.
