Our stay was par excellence, we travelled north to south India and can say easily that one of our top destination was our stay at Kollenkeril Plantation Home stay Bungalow , the bungalow is lovely with the most amazing views of the nilgiris and amazing spice plantations on the premises ,also a lovely tree house with super views , the staff is wonderful and made us some of the best meals we ever had, our son had fallen sick previously and the staff and Manager cured him back to health with their simple,healthy and lovely food and ofcourse their extra kind touches , their hospitality never left us and we hope to go back soon . Top marks!!! Harkers, New Zealand .

My daughter and I stayed with Joseph and his staff and family in early January 2010. I wanted to see this part of the world as I had heard it was beautiful . My daughted simply loves everything good about India , and thats a lot !(she has been several times+places there)
Our stay in Munnar was just idyllic...such kindness , comfort ,such wonderful cooking, good humour and interesting trips , to the sandalwood forest and the spice plantation. It was the happiest time in my life , and I often talk and think about it. I would love to return sometime , to be on top of the world in every sense, and be with people who were so genuinely interested in caring for us. I cannot speak highly enough about this venue.

With it's sweeping views of the Cardamom valley and breathtaking views of the sunrise and sunset from your room, this traditional style bungalow is possibly one of the best places you can stay at in Kerala. About 30mins before the hill-station of Munnar (on your way from Kochi), the manager and staff offer great hospitality and service, along with some great southern-style meals. The small tree-house in the backyard overlooking the valley, offers a great platform to enjoy your morning coffee or evening tea. The pictures on the internet do not do justice to the place.

The estate manager, Joseph or Joey, is a great host and offers an informative tour around the plantation full of cardamom, coffee, vanilla and other spices.

The rooms are simple and don't expect luxurious resort style living. Go here for the experience. We have already recommended this place to a lot of family and friends.

This place is absolutely gorgeous and spacious. Location is excellent and views are amazing. This place is located on the back of a mountain. Very serene. It's like living in real jungle with all the modern world luxuries. I couldn't think of any better place to live in Munnar (or may be in Kerala). Mr Joy and his staff is always there for you for all your needs. The food preparation is real authentic and delicious. A must stay for resort like experience.

Kollenkeril was one of our favourite homestays on our trip around Kerala. The views are amazing, the food is delicious and the hosts kind and friendly. The Munnar area is well worth a visit and this is a lovely place to use as a base.
