Posted on December 21, 2010 | HotelsNo Comment



Adorning the south Indian state of Kerala, the hill station of Munnar is among the most thronged Indian destinations throughout the year. Frequently explored by the visitors from all across the world, Munnar is regarded as among the most congenial places in the subcontinent. Although you can come here anytime because of its pleasant climate, it is still most preferred to come between April and June.

Besides natural scenery and amazing attractions, Munnar is also admired for its lodging facilities of which the loving welcome of the staff is much more appealing. It goes without saying that you will find many Munnar hotels online. In fact, Munnar hotels are available right from budget to luxury preferences. I recommend not to go for AC rooms as that is not required – all credit goes to the weather here. A majority of the hotels feel proud to stand flanking the tea gardens as well as mind-blowing vistas. So, if you wish a budget-cum-pleasure vacation of fun as well as relaxation, then Munnar is your cup of tea.

To cater to the needs of people of different status, Munnar hotels besides basic facilities offer many best deal packages. Talking about the cost of the hotels, a budget one will cost you in the range of 600 to 2,000 INR daily, while a deluxe one will fall in the range of 2,000 to 3,700 INR per day. If you want to stay in a resort, then be ready to spend 3,400 to 5,000 INR per day (this includes all taxes). Listed below are my top 5, but they are not in any order.
