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.

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.
