    I would like some help in finding some 4-star hotels in Munnar. I will be visiting Munnar later this year with my family and I want to find a good hygienic hotel for us to stay at, as we have small children.
    I would also like the hotel to be located near some eating places, so we don't have to travel too far to have our meals.

The property is away from the chaos that is of the city, so utmost serenity can be enjoyed here.

You can choose from a variety of villa options such as Horizon View Villa, Valley View Villa, Family Cottage and Honeymoon Villa.

The ground floor has a living room and pantry area, the bathroom is also found in this area. The first floor has the bedroom and balcony areas, from where you can enjoy the valley views in. The on-site restaurant is known as Panorama, which serves a variety of North Indian and South Indian cuisines, with specialties on local Keralan cuisine.
