About Munnar, i can vouch that fans are not required there. Long ago I stayed there for three years and the interesting part is that while shifting to Munnar from Trivandrum my father sold off a pedestal fan. Even in the peak of summer you don't need one.

Friends,

Best place for Breakfast/lunch in Munnar (strictly Veg)?

Also, is there any decent food options in Munnar-Top Station road (which has Mettupatty dam, Kundale Lake etc)?
I will reach Munnar by 10 AM and planning to cover Top station road whole day, Hence would like to know decent food joints in this stretch. Else, I have to get some food packed from Munnar itself.

I would say no other place other than the resort you stay. That is the best bet that you have got.

No restaurants on the Top Station road.The only strictly veg restaurant in Munnar is Saravana Bhavan(no relation to the original one).This is a small restaurant with very limited seating.Food is good though and for strict vegetarians this is the only life saver in Munnar that I am aware of.

recently I stayed in Munnar(Chinnakkanal Mahindra Lakeview resort) for few days and I did venture out to Munnar town and see that there are north Indian Jain Restaurants like "Mahaveer Hotel" are there. I have no idea about the quality of their service.

Options for veg. food are all mostly in Munnar town. Refer this earlier post in another thread:
here
Note that Silver Spoon is not a veg. only place but does serve veg. food. Saravana Bhavan for South indian food and Sujatha for North Indian food are good.

We could not find any decent restaurants on the Munnar-Top Station route. There are some shacks and one restaurant at Top Station but did not give us the confidence to eat there

Default Re: Munnar : Recommendations for Hotel/Resorts/Homestay

Guys, I'm about to book a Luxury Suite in "The Siena Village". Any reccomendations for this place?

Also, in case you have better options, please let me know. Budget is not a constraint. Following is the requirement.

1. Good clean rooms with good ambience and good view

2. Preferrably out of Munnar town but shouldn't be too far away(max 20km is Ok)

3. Not looking at hotel type of stay and not looking at Oldish Bungalows as well

4. Preferrably a secluded place with not many people around

TIA.

Just a general response to this thread, in case it helps someone planning a trip to munnar- we stayed in a hotel called silver tips and I would recommend it. Its close to the town, yet located in quiet surroundings, has good views and is very clean. I also got a decent deal when I booked through one of the online travel websites.

Not very far off from munnar town, this is easily accessible by buses, share autos from munnar town. I have stayed here and I think this would meet all your conditions !

I had stayed there during October 2009. It was brand new then, and the place was in pristine condition. The location is awesome, and not too far from the town (8kms). Make sure you choose valley view rooms-they offer an amazing view. Food was also decent, for south Indian non vegetarians, it would not be an issue at all.

Misty Mountain seems to be have decent review in tripadvisor. You can check for other hotels listed there for options-

We had stayed at seagrace cottage when we went to munnar couple of months back. It is right next to hotel grand plaza on msa road. The rooms were very clean and neat but a little small. It was priced at around 1200 rupees. Its a good place to stay, especially while on a budget.
