“God's own country at Ambady Estate”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Just stayed here for 2 nights with two of my girl friends in Oct 2013. This is one of the beautiful places I've stayed at. We were welcomed by the General Manager and were served delicious spiced tea (made with their own receipe and seasoned with spices and ginger grown on their farm). The cottages are very well built and decorated with quality building materials and the whole property including the cottages and the grounds are well maintained and very clean - very high ceiling, huge size, very comfortable with a big bed and nice sitting area for hanging out. The 360 degrees view at the lookout view point during the sunrise was breathtaking. Very peaceful, comfortable, and extremely refreshing place to stay along with nature. You can sit and listen to the birds while the sun comes up and walk around the ground to see monkeys and beautiful plants and flowers. You can also visit their spice and vegetable gardens in the back part of the property. Miles and miles of the view of rolling hills and tea gardens in the cloud makes you really feel like you are in God's own country indeed! During the evening, the clouds and fog tends to roll in but if you are lucky, you get a clear view during dusk and a clear night sky to see the moon. All the staff is very well trained, very polite, responsive and helpful. The food was DELICIOUS! The breakfast was really good and plentyful. We had dinner for 2 nights and they were our best meals in Kerela - all the ingredients were fresh from their farm including fresh vegetables, spices, and ginger. Very tasty and great service. The General Manager is very kind and even offer us a tour of the main farm house to see where they kept and dried their freshly grown cardamom on the 2nd and 3rd floor of the main farm house - the big storage room was heated by firewoods and it's fun to see how the traditional drying process is like. This place is definitely worth it and I would highly recommend everyone to experience this amazing place!! One of the best places I have stayed at in the world and I've been to many resorts and B&B stay around the world. Refreshing stay for your body, mind, spirit, and soul. 5+ stars!

though I like the location, i feel its little costly and food is too expensive and we don't have any other option expect to order the food from their restaurant. service is average. I really like the food which is tasty(but expensive) and location.

We stayed here in Aug 2013 and booked this property because we wanted to stay away from the city. The three days spent here were amazing. The staff is very well trained, polite and super efficient. The cottages are very beautiful and have all the facilities.
We loved the food here, it was fresh, delicious and home cooked. The cardamom plantation visit was the best part of the stay. The plantation is spread over the hill side and it was great fun wondering around the thickly planted estate. The manager Mr. Shyam was very helpful and made sure our stay was most comfortable. I recommended this property to a friend who visited one week after us and had the same experience. I would strongly recommend this place for a lovely holiday.

Room Tip: Try and get the D or C row rooms, they have better view.

A charming place, right in nature, where you will feel away from the world. Dr Rajesh, the owner and his family, Mr Shyam, the manager and the staff, everybody is there to make your stay enjoyable. The cottages are spacious and quiet... You will have a wonderful sleep after walking in the hills..Food is excellent and the choice of wines surprising in this place! Perfect for rest and stay with family to discover the full aera!

Room Tip: You can choose any cottage... They are all same, and view mostly same from all...

Ambady is a very well maintained property. There are only 8 cottages, so very calm and quiet place. The view from the cottage is towards mountains.
We stayed in Ambady as part of our honeymoon. We had opted for honeymoon package, flower arrangement, fruit basket, cake, etc. welcomed us. The cottage interior is in two levels with high ceiling which is simply amazing. Friendly staff, amazing food, privacy all made our stay a memorable one.


Pros:
* Very clean, well maintained
* Cottages are extremly spacious
* Friendly Staff
* Delicious food

Cons:
* A bit away from Munnar town.(Its in Pallivasal, which is 10KM before Munnar town when coming from Kochi)
* There is no tea estate view from cottages.

If you are looking for a well maintained calm place and is fine if there is no tea valley around, then this is a place for you. I would definitely recommend.

We stayed here for two nights as part of a tour organised by Kerala Travel Centre and were amazed at the quality of accommodation and views from our cottage. From pictures in the brochure this was the least attractive looking base in our tour but when we were shown our cottage my jaw nearly touched the floor! It was huge, on two levels with a very high ceiling, comfortable bed, sitting area and a small green area in the front, beyond which were views of the mountains. Birds were everywhere and we explored the Cardemon (excuse spelling!) plantation behind the cottages, having to walk through a small holding tended by a friendly family. The reception area was beautiful and the restaurant was decorated tastefully. Food was tasty; on the first night was a buffet where dishes were described fully to us and on the second night we chose from the menu. Staff were friendly and always helpful with books to borrow to identify all the birds. Because of the altitude the climate was warm rather than hot which was a welcome relief from the humidity on the coast. Would thoroughly recommend.
