Tea County Resort Review
The state of Kerala is one of the most visited places in India mainly for its variety of attractions—from beaches to backwaters, from modernity to tradition, from national parks to spice plantations, and more. Of course, Kerala isn’t that small, and if you’re a travel junkie then you would want to make the best of your vacation by visiting as much places as you can within your stay—but at the same time getting to sleep in the right hotel.

Tea County Resort in Munnar (hotel info), Kerala, offers it guests not only the best rooms and view of the mountains with its accommodations, it also offers it guests the chance of visiting half of Kerala’s wild side hassle-free with its strategic location.
The town of Munnar, back in the good old days, was the summer destination of the British. Now, though time has changed much of the geography of the mountains, Munnar remains to be the summer destination of not only the British anymore, and remains to be historically significant to the state.
Being in the mountains, Munnar’s climate is cold all year-round, and thus has turned Tea County Hotel one of the best hotels for hikers, trekkers, explorers, and, yes, even the lovers.

The facilities in the hotel also promise its guests a relaxing stay. Since the Tea County Resort (check rates) is located in the middle of two hills, views from the balconies of rooms are mostly that of the lush forests and the relatively less-urbanized side of Kerala. Guests may choose among 4 types of rooms, ranging from the deluxe-type, to the most luxurious royal-type.

Guests with different purposes of traveling may also find their needs satisfied here—as the hotel caters to the needs of businessmen, with its WiFi-connected conference rooms, and also that of the needs of families, with its play area, health club, lounge, and Ayurvedic parlor. There’s a beer parlor in the hotel, if you feel like having a drink. There’s also a restaurant—the food served here will leave you asking for more—and a dance floor, so you might as well save all your energy for the evening.

Still, if your purpose is really to explore the wild side of Kerala, Tea County Resort (check availability) also offers day tours. Nearby attractions include the waterfalls of Nyayamakad, a popular picnic spot for the lovers, and the Blossom International Park, which features 16 acres of blossom fields.

The facilities of Tea County Resort Munnar also include a doctor-on-call, in case anyone gets bitten by a bug (Munnar is mostly forest).

Nevertheless, the crew are trained to be attentive and empathic to the needs of their guests, so there’s no need to worry about anything much—except for the fact that your vacation is almost over and that you have to say goodbye to Munnar soon.
