This was by some distance the nicest accommodation we stayed in during our 18 days in Kerala. We had a spacious cabin with a bathroom big enough to bathe a medium-sized elephant. It was beautifully-furnished in a very cool, understated way, and immaculately clean. The hotel staff were without exception friendly, courteous and professional. We liked the fact that there were some structured opportunities to mix and mingle, ie the excellent, free, guided walks, and the pre-dinner barbecues. Equally we liked the peace and quiet and the privacy. The reading room above the dining room was an unexpectedly lovely place, with views so distractingly lovely that I don't imagine anyone does much reading.
Certainly a great place if you want to experience nature at its purest! Living among the clouds and pristine green hills are probably Indias alternative to the rainforest experience. The hotel has no Tv for all those of us addicted to the box. However after a few days without the modern influences (place has poor mobile networks; so you stay undisturbed) one certainly is refreshed and recharged. Maybe requires a better menu since the dinner was ok and could be better. However to get around one must certainly get a self drive car too; which is a great way to explore places around at your pace and convenience. Have seen almost all hotels in the area. This is one of the best without doubt.

It felt like we were staying in heaven. I'm sure the exotic beauty of Munnar played a role in this feeling, but everything about the Blackberry Hills Retreat was perfect for the location--from the simple elegance of the lobby to the siting of all the buildings to maximize views to the way they've kept mature trees close to the buildings to the room itself. We had a comfortable suite with a great balcony, a large sitting room, and a perfect bedroom with very comfortable bed. Everything was spotlessly clean. The front desk staff were extremely helpful. The restaurant was excellent when serving off the menu, less so when serving a buffet.
Note: You need to be comfortable with walking up and downhill if you stay here.
Very nice hotel with super view from large windows and balcony. The hotel is very good for retreat stay when you can walk in the cardamon garden, do yoga, take a rest at the room or take a long walk in the hills - in all these activities you will be supported by the staff. I want to return to the hotel for a 2 weeks stay. The only dissapointment is the food, i don't like it at all.
We had booked 3 rooms in advance at this hotel for our trip to Munnar. On arrival we found out that they cannot give us the assigned rooms as there was a water leak and 1 hallway was not usable. They offered to give us 1 room and give 2 rooms at another hotel across the street that was not the save quality place. Alternatively they said they could give us 2 rooms and have extra beds in the big room. We took that option. We had only seen the big room first. The second room assigned to us may have been a spare that the hotel staff uses - the interior was different, makeshift place. The bathroom was really a kitchen with black counters and rectangular sink! Water was leaking when we tried to use the hand held shower! When we complained about our experience the next day the person at the checkin desk had a blank look and kept talking about the water leak that caused the issue. He refused to acknowledge that he should be compensate us for the room we did not get, or in kitchen we were assigned to use as a shower! The manager was to come at 11am at at 8:30 in the morning he was offering nothing but some spices! After trying to talk to him to 30mins, a PR person came and helped matters.

I have booked 3 rooms using Expedia and when I reached in evening got to know only 1 room was booked. Person at reception instead of providing any help he clearly said he cant help us and asked me to contact expedia people. Finally I got 2 more rooms that were under maintenance.
Person at reception should understand evening time and it was raining there should try to help customers. he can see I was coming from bangalore and girls are with us how we can manage something and hotel is situated far away from city
This hotel is situated at a lovely hill side location with 12 rooms, the scenery is amazing.It is an excellent place to enjoy the nature and for relaxation. The staff here are friendly and very helpful. The only negative point is the staff are very slow when serving the breakfast. you have to wait for quiet some time to be served. The hotel staff also will request you to place your diner or lunch order an hour ahead in order to be served on time. For travelers who needs to be in touched with family please be aware that due to the hotel is located at a high altitude between the mountains their is hardly any mobile connection, however it can be overcome by buying a prepaid land line phone card( ISD Card) in advance and you can use the hotel phone to make the call. Overall i enjoyed my stay
