The stay in Estate Residency was greatly enjoyed by myself and an Australian senior colleague who himself was a world traveller and visited Munnar in Dec 2012.One of those stays which only leaves good memories behind of the hospitality provided by the Firosh family.Needless to say,the rooms were spotlessly clean and food was authentic kerala cuisine greatly appreciated byboth of us.What clearly stands out is the hospitality and warmth exuded by everyone in the Firosh home.In fact,Mr.Firosh ensured that all the key sights in Munnar and a proper tour of the Cardamon estate/the processing centre was provided.Mr.Firosh is a 3rd generation cardamon planter and passionate about spices.Estate Residency is a hidden gem and deserves a 5 star rating for their service oriented approach and genuine hospitality.

Room Tip: Please request for a room with views of the mountains and valley.

We stayed in one of the rooms on the top floor from which we had a fantastic panoramic view. The room was nice and clean, but a bit crowded with 2 extra mattresses on the floor for our kids. However, it was no problem since there was a nice common balcony and living room. The family was very friendly and service-minded. They cooked us the most excellent food and took time showing us around their cardamon plantation.

The Estate Residency owned by the Foriche family was an excellent find and the first of many homestay experiences I shall be having from now on. The residency is located about 10 minutes taxi drive from the town of Munnar in a small little village at 2 nd mile. Being located outside Munnar was not an issue as it was quieter and had few chai shops, ayurvedic treatments on offer, a Kathikali theatre with some fantastic performances, I highly recommend a visit here.

The accommodation was superb with the most amazing view from the bedroom over the cardamom and pepper estate owned by the family . The room had a very comfortable bed, its own tv and bathroom that was well presented and clean.

The food here was faultless and delicious, so much better when it's home cooked and a welcomed change to the usual restaurant fare that you get when travelling and tire of so quickly. There were number of dishes I really enjoyed especially the beef curry and the fried okra (ladies fingers). I just wish I had more time there as Annie would have shown me how to prepare these dishes.

The Firoche family went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable arranging taxis and taking us for a tour of their estate , which was just fantastic. I hope to return again when their new tree house room is available and I highly recommend Estate Residency as somewhere to stay.

I kinda loved it here !

We had a pleasant stay at the Estate Residency. Mr & Mrs. Firosh & family were very hospitable, warm & friendly. The rooms were clean & neat, the food was home-cooked & delicious.

This wonderful couple went out of their way to make other arrangements for our trip.

The scenic view from our rooms were awesome. Had a wonderful & memorable stay.

I will definitely recommend my relatives & friends to stay with the Firosh family at the Estate residency if ever they visit Munnar.

Except for the things you see and the food you eat etc.; one of the most important aspects of traveling (at least for me) is the local people you meet.
At the Estate Residency, all ingredients which make an overnight stay a memorable experience are well represented. Comfortable, Clean, Great Food, Genuinely Friendly and...A Splendid Panorama

Friendliness with a story to tell - this characterizes the Firosh family.

We visited Munnar on 27th and stayed as three family in three rooms at ground floor. Mr. Finosh and his family given an ultimate stay experience. Fresh Banana was fantastic and I was surprised when my two year son too ate those which normally he don't do. Candamom estate is an unique area to visit around estate residency. Rooms were very clean and home food was very tasty. Sorry Mr. Firosh to bother you all on Good Friday but even then we have a fantastic breakfast on that day. "Kallu" shop nearby was very good compared to normal ones. We stayed two nights. I liked the design of house which was inspiring particularly chain hanging from water drain from roof. I wish i could visit again in more misty season at Munnar and stay again at estate residency. Ayurvedic Massage centre nearby was a good experience. Fun Forest park at walkable distane is a difference adventure park. We had a lovely time at Munnar.

Room Tip: Ground Floor Rooms are good for garden view and cheaper. Higher floors are good for view.
