    I will be on my honeymoon soon and the chosen destination is Munnar. I am trying to find a good decent hotel or resort in Munnar which has a private pool, but had no luck. I have joined the forum in the hope to get some information on hotels and resorts with private pools. Budget is no issue yet and will probably be decided after the suggestions given.

    There are a few options for resorts with private pools, some within Munnar and some a bit away from it, which I have mentioned below:

    Raagamaya Munnar provides a honeymoon villa with a plunge pool.

    Ragamaya Resort also provides a private swimming pool but is around 25km away from Munnar.

    If you looking for a resort with a pool you are more likely to find them outside of Munnar, although there are some available in Munnar but the prices are quite high and you have not mentioned anything about price.
    Although overpriced The Panoramic Getaway is an excellent place to stay.

    Yes I did kind of realise that most of the resorts with pools are outside of Munnar which is not much of a problem it is just that because the destination is popular one would have thought that there would be resorts with pools. Do you think I should reconsider the destination?

    Hello there! Welcome to the forum!

    There are many hotels in Munnar with swimming pools. However, there are very few properties with private pools in Munnar being that it's a high altitude area. There are a few properties with private pools, but they are further from the city centre. Here they are:

    Hotels and Resorts in Munnar with Private Pool
    • Spice Tree Munnar - This is about 23 kms from Munnar proper. This hotel/resort is between the Kannan Devan Hills and Bison Valley Hills. It has 14 luxurious suites and 2 pool villas in the property. The Private Pool Villa has its own pool and a deck overlooking the mountains. The Villa also has a separate master's bedroom, dining area, bathroom and a living room. It also has a writing desk, television, mini-bar and tea/coffee maker.

    There you go. These are all the resorts I was able to find that have villas with private pools.

    It depends upon you really. If you'd been wanting to do some sightseeing, then you have to reconsider your options. These resorts are far from the main city centre. But if your main goal is to relax and have a quiet atmosphere, then you can consider these resorts as they're far from the city noise.

    I hope this helps!

    Well I think that it would have really been outside of the feel that we were going for to have a private pool, but at the same time it would have been really nice to beat the heat. There were times when we were over there when we barely got around because we had to take so many breaks due to the heat. A nice dip in a pool might have worked to ease that pain, but oh well. Thanks for sharing.
