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 caf, small library and plenty of warmth and care from a typical Kerala Syrian Christian family. Perhaps the only home stay in Munnar where the hosts family resides in the house. About The Promoter The Promoter of Bakers Villa Munnar, Jo belongs to the third generation of the migrants who have moved from the Central Kerala district of Kottayam( Erstwhile Travancore kingdom) in the early 1930s. Jo is a graduate in Psychology from Adamoson University, Manila, Philippines and is a certified a Certified Hotel Administrator by American Hotel & Motel Association and has more than 16 years of hospitality exposure with reputed brands like Club Mahindra, Habitat Hospitality, in operations, sales & marketing, administration, HR. In the home stay venture, Ms. Jeena Elizabeth, Jos wife is rather your host. Jeena is a post graduate in Mathematics and hails from Kochi. Mr. Joseph Oommen, the head of house is a skilled baker of the traditional baking era whose expertise in baking and cooking will be the prime flavoring agent during the experience at Mistletoe. Mrs. Annamma, Josephs wife is from a conservative Syrian Christian family of Kottayam, it is only an added blessing that Annamma has excellent cooking skills especially in Syrian Christian delicacies. And their jovial grandsons Nirmal & Thejas, aged six and three would certainly add some rhythm and life to the entire ambience at Mistletoe Munnar. Concept 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 foot steps 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 bakers family and enjoying their simplicity of life and hospitality. The house has been designed by the award winning Kerala artist Mr. Somu from Aymanam, near Kottayam. His passion for being distinct in whatever he touches has added a lot of flavor and color to Mistletoe. His style is minimalist yet has a taste for detailing especially in concept development , architecture lay out to logo creation. His soft spoken nature with a deep sense of observation in to natural and local surroundings have added a lot of value addition. What you could expect ! As a home stay what one could expect from Mistletoe: The rooms are spacious, well appointed with modern shower rooms and private balcony and entry. We do not offer luxury, only the nature around is luxury. Our Guests could expect a peaceful, homely atmosphere that is clean, hygienic and safe for families, couples, women travelers, solo travelers where the hosts family lives in the premises. Mistletoe is also a cozy place for small groups of friends, who look for a quite-undisturbed place for a chill out. Mistletoe is not recommended for late night parties and noisy socializing. Food as a major ingredient during holidays; we could offer neat home cooked food, BBQ, customized to your taste with prior discussions. One cannot expect a typical hotel menu to order especially for major meals. Baking and cooking as an activity is encouraged with prior intimation and with an affordable price.

First thing first it’s not a full fledged hotel. It’s a small home stay with 5 rooms run by Mr. Joe and his family. The rooms are neat and the the entire home stay is well decorated. This is where the positives end. First it’s no where near close to Munnar. It’s 19kms from the city centre. This is a very big negative as many will find transportation a huge barrier and also very expensive. Even though we had our car it takes almost 1hr to reach the town cause of the hilly roads. Second the food is very limited and while the pictures show wood fired pizza oven it won’t be available all the days. Also the food takes 1hr to be prepared and the taste is so so as it’s prepared by the gentlemen’s family who again not professional chefs. Again as the town is far off we are very limited in choices as we need to travel for 1hr for a decent nearby restaurant. Third the beds are very small and not comfortable and the sofa bed they had is fixed far off so if u come as a family u all can’t sleep together leaving kids exposed on one side of the bed as two adults and a kid can’t sleep in the same bed. Fourth the room service person doesn’t know a single word of English, Malayalam or tamil only Hindi. When we asked him to clean our rooms and gave them the key and after a long day we come back to the room in a messy state with no cleaning done claiming I told the guy not to clean. Come on he doesn’t know a word. Even the dust bins towels and daily supplies are not done is that also an excuse for so called not cleaning? Fifth the real bummer is of provident RO water for drinking after paying *k per day? Are u kidding. They don’t even provide two complimentary bottled water? The buffet breakfast again very limited with a cut fruits served only once and a single Keralite breakfast. When we asked for cheese omlets the guy was reluctant but did provide on the first day. The next day when we asked him they gave plain omelet without cheese what cheep behaviour. Basically for *k a day u have awesome places to stay in Munnar and did I mention the place is hotter than Munnar because it’s 19km below Munnar. Also extension work which is happening in the premises will start making noises from 7.30 so pls be prepared to be woken up early. All in It’s a disaster and pls stay away.
