You don’t have to shell out huge amounts of money to experience luxury in the Western Ghats region. The Munnar Queen is affordable, beautifully decorated, and as romantic as a hotel high up the mountains can be.
The resort offers several honeymoon packages, with the most comprehensive one including a stay at their honeymoon suite, daily breakfast and dinner for two, a sightseeing tour, and on-site activities.

Situated in the middle of the lush jungle of Munnar, Elixir Hills is a family-friendly resort that knows how to turn it down a notch for honeymooners looking to relax and unwind.
The modern, treehouse-style lodge has a honeymoon suite with a four-poster bed with canopy, a spacious bathroom with a whirlpool soaking tub for two, and plenty of space to stretch and move around. Our favorite part of the resort, however, is the infinity pool that looks like it’s suspended among the trees.
Relaxing deep-tissue massages, authentic satvik dining made with fresh and locally sourced ingredients, and the most picturesque yoga spots await at Kaivalyam Wellness Retreat. Even if you and your beloved aren’t too big on wellness, this place will convert you or at least make you feel rejuvenated– perfect after months of planning a wedding!
All of Kaivalyam’s guest rooms and suites feature breathtaking views of the jungle, king-sized beds with luxury linens, and en-suite bathrooms. But if you want privacy, check out the treetop cottages.

Blackberry Hills Munnar Nature Resort and Spa is perched on the hills of Kannan Devan, giving you and your significant other the best seats in the region when it comes to Munnar vistas. Here, time stands still– you and your partner can literally spend hours doing nothing but enjoying each other’s company.

The resort has a couple of different accommodation types. For your honeymoon, we recommend Cirrus or Alto’s cottages. Both offer king-sized beds, spacious living areas, beautiful views of the Western Ghats, soaking tubs for two, and balconies.

Each cottage has hot and cold water and shower, DTH TV, nature-based toiletries, boxes of homemade chocolates, and more. But for honeymooners, the Saffron suite is simply the place to be. Apart from the usual offerings, this suite has a balcony where you and your loved one can enjoy being under the canopy of tall trees.
Underrated but definitely worth it
If you’re looking for a honeymoon destination that’s off the beaten path, Munnar is it. There are plenty of resorts to choose from and exciting nature-based activities to try, from enrolling in a tea-making program to trekking to one of the waterfalls in the area.
