“Well maintained (interesting place) but not easily approachable ”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The name speaks for the place..it is literally solitude..we found it extremely difficult to approach the place as it took us more than hour to drive from munnar town...the approach roads are not good and the place completely secludes you from any kind of facilities..even the mobile phones do not catch network which could be a bit risky in case of emergency..the property is very well maintained, has a cozy bedroom and dining room (only on the first floor) and is surrounded with breathtaking view of the hills and spice plantation..The caretakers...Mr. Kalesan and his wife are extremely helpful and do a great job with hospitality...they prepared sumptuous meals and breakfast for us and made sure we were comfortable..out of the two floors (ground and first) only the first floor is worth the stay which also has unique balcony with a spectacular view of the hills...this place is not recommended for families travelling with small kids or for those who wish to explore and drive around munnar for sightseeing as it's not easily approachable. But I would advise this place to those who are really looking to relax and unwind and do not mind spending all their time in "solitude" and desire a peaceful getaway from the city.

Thank you for the feedback.
We perfectly take the inputs that you have suggested.

Regarding the room downstairs we understand that the room is not at par with the top one. We have already planned a maintenance in the last week of September. We are planing to put in a false ceiling and and the walls with wooden cladding.That should be making it a bit more cozy for the guests.

We have tried to work out the concept of living close to the nature. Viripara is away from the hustles of the Munnar town and is near to the forest. I guess we were not clear regarding the explanation about the distance from the Munnar town. We would make sure that the explanation is more crisp and clear for the future guests.

Regarding the safety of the kids, again We would ensure that the guests have a clear picture of the terrain. Also we will try to work more on the safety part. My apologies, that we assumed the safety is at the best as the previous guests with kids did not provide an open feedback.

We also understand that mobile signal is not good at times. We will provide the facility to use the mobile phone available with the care taker in case of emergencies.

We would definitely make the best effort to improve the quality and would like to see you back in Solitude for your next vacation.
