River Rock Homestay is appropriately named with our room having a balcony that overlooked the river with rocks. We stayed for two nights during a trip to Munnar. This was a beautiful place to watch the sunrise. The hosts were very warm and welcoming.

Stayed 2 nights. Was originally put out that my husband & I weren't in Munnar but the Homestay was fabulous. Our balcony overlooked the river - birdsong, squirrels scampering about on the rocks & in the trees. Boiled water is provided to guests. Generous sized room with 2 singles pushed together, a divan, cupboards. Wifi reasonable. Good sleep quality.
The bus from Kumily stops outside if requested. The host helpful with suggestions for onward travel. And very best of all, DO eat in as the in-house meals are superb!

I stayed here for a couple of days with my family. The rooms are very cosy and spacious with a good amount of luxury at a very affordable price. The host Mr. Varghese and his wife serves the best hospitality and makes a homelike feeling. Not to mention their food, it was soo finger licking gooood. Cleanliness was also at the best. You'll wake up the next day with the mesmerizing view of a river. The place is quite isolated from city traffic and noise.

Had a lovely stay here. The owners were very friendly and kind, made us feel very welcomed and ensured we had everything we needed. Our room looked over the river and the breakfast was delicious - we got to try some of the local breakfast options. Would definitely recommend to anyone coming to Munnar!

If you come from noisy Madurai or from busy Cochin, Riverrock homestay is the ideal place for resting and enjoy the riverside just down the private garden. Here you will start the day among the birds. The river is singing and will give you a good sleep. Varghese and his wife are giving you excellent food and fruits which are grown nearby. Mother nature will care for you as well. The problem is that you don t feel like leaving this amazing place.

This is an exquisite heavenly place. The hosts are gracious and kind, the rooms spacious, the home-cooked authentic breakfasts tasty. Step out onto the rocks in the small mountain river below the homestay to bask in a sunrise you'll never forget. Truly blessed.

Greeted by a warm welcome, clean rooms and hot showers, woke up to amazing river views in such a peaceful location.
Varghese is a lovely host, always helpful and willing to help in any way he can, nothing is too much trouble which makes for an easy and comfortable stay. A Peaceful location and not too far from the local shops.
Lovely food and great coffee, I would highly recommend.

We visited for 3 nights. It was excellent. The accommodation is clean and spacious and looks down into the unspoilt river valley which you can access through the garden via a few steps. A fabulous location, welcoming, friendly and attentive hosts and great breakfasts.

This is a beautiful place to stay. There are steps down to the river where's a little seat to watch the birds. Our room had a balcony looking out over the valley and was very airy and spacious. Ask your hosts for a guide to take you through the forest and up to the tea fields. It was one of the best hikes we made on our visit. Thanks a mill River Rock for a lovely stay!

Hi, when we got there we just took an auto Riksha. You can also take a car driver. There are many of both just by the bus stand

What is the best option to reach this place from Munnar bus stand?
Answer from DominikaAgo

We had our own car and driver, so I have no idea about buses. I think the best way to get to River Rock Homestay from Munnar is to take a taxi/tuk-tuk
