"Perfect location and service"

Posted 17 Dec, 2016

Fantastic location, the home stay is surrounded by lush-green tea and cardamom plantations. Great views from the rooms, which were spotless clean and comfortable. Santosh is very warm and discreet, always smiling and helpful. Maya's food is absolutely delicious. Great breakfast with both Indian and continental options. Santosh can arrange half-day and full-day treks departing from the house which are great value for money. Staying at the Shade was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

"Lovely Ambience"

Posted 23 Jul, 2016

I was keen on a cultural experience which owner Santosh and Maya provided. They gave authentic Kerala cuisine and were extremely courteous, the children Devika and Arjun were friendly and disciplined. My three year old grandchild was comfortable and felt free to run around. I wish we could have explored their garden a bit more. To enrich their services they could perhaps have conducted Tours for plant recognition or to a nearby village. That would be their usp for cultural experience Asha Singh

"Good Home stay but located far away from Munnar"

Posted 7 Oct, 2015

This was my first home stay and it's very nice. The location far away from Munnar town but who need calm location this is best. Food available from the host need to inform early so they can prepare for you. Host very friendly and helped to explore Munnar. Need car to go around Munnar from here.

"One of the best budget hotel, staff are helpful "

Posted 7 Sep, 2015

This is one of the best budget hotel. Cosy hotel. Staff are cheerful and always smiling. Opted for this one because it was closer to my office in Khar. Room was very small but it was clean and maintained properly. They have recently closed their restaurant. So you have to eat your lunch and dinner outside or order. They provide breakfast but variety is less. Overall, an average stay. Overall, good experience I had.

With my school friends we had planned a trip to Munnar. For the stay we chooses hotel The Shade for 2 days stay. We had a wonderful experience in that trip and the stay in the hotel. Room facilities are awesome and service also so good. They arranged guides to help us and made our trip a more pleasant one.

"The food & ambiance was awesome"

Posted 7 Dec, 2013

Shade was purely a home stay. We felt at home during our stay here. The food & ambiance was awesome. There was complete privacy as well. The family was too good in treating their guests. Munnar was a wonderful place to relax in the midst of a hectic schedule.

"Peaceful place with homely enviornment"

Posted 6 Dec, 2013

If you are in stressed/disturbed of whatever reason that movement what you thing and may share with your friends like "I wanted to go the alone/group place where i will get relaxed and get refresh myself" exactly this is the place you should go and stay. The same i/we had felt and enjoyed the places, clean, fresh and green atmosphere around you. Food was nicely prepared 100% home food in the shade, very humble and good treatment. You have to order the quantity to prepare much advance. We don't feel like going out and stayed at room only and enjoyed the places around you. We again planning to go to next Mar-Apr :-)

It was wonderful experience with The Shade. We felt homely and enjoyed nature at The Shade, private water fall within the property, cardamom plantation and other spices. We had authentic Kerala food at The Shade which is inexpensive also.

"Room had most of the channels subscribed."

Posted 18 Nov, 2013

We went for our honeymoon. Rooms were comfortable. TV in the room had most of the channels subscribed. Had a very very pleasant view in front of the room. Almost like a dream land. We were very much impressed by the view in front of our room. Though being a home-stay, we felt very safe and comfortable. The room service was good. Only disadvantage is the hotel is 13 km far from Munnar which added to the cost of transportation on everyday visit. Apart from that, very peaceful location.

"I had 1N/1D stay & found it very comfortable"

Posted 27 Nov, 2013

Its a great place to stay at Munnar, me and my 2 friends were here, I had 1N/1D stay & found it very comfortable. The double bed room is nice and the view behind the hotel is excellent. Enjoy the nature at its very best by sitting out at balcony. Nearest daily needs shop is 3 km away.
