Certificate of Excellence
Mistletoe Munnar is a boutique, premium home stay having five well furnished rooms with private balcony; overlooking the magnificent Chokkanmudi peaks, Lakchmi hills and Kanan Devan plantations of Munnar. This home stay features a traditional clay oven bakery, a cute cafe, small library and plenty of warmth and care from a typical Kerala Syrian Christian family. Mistletoe Munnar is situated at Iruttukanam, on Kochi – Dhanushkodi, NH 49. The driving distance to Munnar via NH is only 16 kms and via Anachal By pass is 14 kms only. It is located between Munnar and Adimaly, ideally at the gateway junction to the Kanan Devan hills of Munnar. Cochin International Airport is only 95 kms away from Mistletoe at a driving duration of 2 hours and 30 minutes. The nearest town is Adimaly, the famous hub for spice trading in Idukki district, and it offers all health care and emergency services. The concept of Mistletoe Munnar has been germinated through several years of passionate desire to offer a value for money real hospitality experience to discerning travelers both international and domestic. The name Mistletoe Munnar has a lot of significance. Mistletoe as a herb, flower has epical attributes in Greek and European mythology and culture. Mistletoe has been attributed as good omen for love, romance, warm family life and relationships, prosperity from time immemorial especially in the medieval European era. Here in our context, every room in the house has a spacious balcony that faces the Lakchmi and Chokkanmudi peaks of the Kanan Devan Hills. One can visualize and be part of the unending romance between the ever relaxing Lakchmi on semi laying position on the north and the Chokkan Mudi peaks with all his magnificence at her footsteps on east, appreciating her natural curves and lush greenery, silvery streaks of water falls on her large bosom. The traditional bake oven & cafe is also the main and characteristic place in the home stay, where baking has been a family business for years. Here one could taste freshly made breads, cakes, cookies and experience baking by learning the basic steps of traditional baking – where the fuel has been always firewood or similar natural fuels like coconut shell, etc. The guests would have a privileged feeling of staying with a baker’s family and enjoying their simplicity of life and hospitality.
