On a particularly sunny morning, us harrowed, tired LOVE BIRDS, drove to the steps of a neat little nook of Swiss County, Munnar. Having just been through a big journey we were indeed a bit skeptical. However, all of that vanished like a bad dream as we were ushered into our room - the one on ground level. Spic and span, softly lit expansive room with minimalist, contemporary decor and a generous french window that opens up to the nearly pristine valley of Munnar (we chose to ignore the construction site in front). The food was definitely a high point. The soups were refreshing, the dishes sumptuous and one particular dessert preparation was near divine. If you crave more of local flava suggest trying out the Barbeque Corner, right beside the State Transport depot adjacent to the Hydel Park. Chicken in coconut gravy - enough said! Back in the bliss of our room the excellent hospitality made us feel at home by second nightfall. Not to mention the owner dr. Joice michael. He is a gem of a person. We were living in the hotel as daughter and son all though our stay. All the couples and families if you want a swizerland kind of a experience in Munnar go for this property. I would definitely come back again for sure in my life ... So touched by the owner as well as the interiors of the property. Thanks for a very special, memorable experience. ( ADVICE : go for Alpine Suite
Swiss County Picture perfect! Swiss County is a cute little hotel tucked in the hills of foggy Munnar. The styling of the hotel is Swiss themed as the name implies. The hotel is well maintained. The staff is attentive and the manager makes sure your stay is comfortable. The food was delicious. Almost everything we ordered ( Chinese, Indian, snacks) were made fresh and tasted heavenly. The breakfast though a la carte, had a lot of variety. Everything was made to order. The restaurant is on the top floor and beautifully designed. It has an amazing view of mountains and tea plantations. The decor of the restaurant, like the rest of the hotel is Swiss inspired. The only food that wasn't satisfactory was Italian. The fried ice cream is one dessert worth trying. It was the best I had in India. There is a chess board near the reception. We had great time playing. All these things were undoubtedly amazing. The best part though, was the view from the room. The magnificence of misty mountains leaves you spellbound. The view can be enjoyed from the bed itself. We stayed there for two nights in Swiss Regalia 112( shared the balcony with 111). The second day was a strike in Munnar, with almost everything closed. Yet we ended up having so much fun. The hotel also has a colourful garden and a mini landscape with a couple of chairs to enjoy the view. The manager gave us bicycles and showed us the way to nearest tea plantations. Between cycling, chess and room service the day of the strike turned out to be our best day in Munnar. This place is definitely recommended for honeymooners. It's charming, romantic and will leave you with wonderful memories.
I traveled to Munnar during the month of May 2017. It was a holiday trip with my family. I booked a room at this hotel through online in MakeMyTrip website. The hotel surroundings were very good. It was in the outer city and had a cool atmosphere. It was a silent and peaceful area. It was convenient to reach. We traveled by hired cab. The appearance was good with the overall looks. It was attractive with the in look and outer looks. It looked like a Villa. The reception was very good with the administration. They completed the booking formalities properly and they responded on time. They were friendly and cooperative. The area was kept clean and had a pleasant atmosphere. The overall service was excellent and very well satisfactory. We took a deluxe suite room. It was like a home. It had all the necessary accessories like Reading hall kitchen double bedroom attached bathroom and a balcony. It was well maintained. It was clean and spacious. The bathroom was clean. The room service was good prompt and they were on time. When we asked for any services they rendered it on time. We took both North Indian and South Indian food items. It had good taste and quality. It was well cooked and delicious. We took more room service than restaurant service. At that place no fun amenities and no extra benefits. Our stay was comfortable so I recommend this hotel to all other travelers. I indicate the hotel management
We visited Swiss County as the second stop on our Honeymoon. After a nice 3 hours drive from Kochi we finally reached Swiss County which is a good 8-9 kms away from the Munnar Market area. The hotel looks exactly as what I saw in the photographs. It is a bit on the downhill side but the view from the rooms is breathtaking. It has the perfect swiss chalet feel to it. The rooms are wonderful with a nice balcony which gives a fantastic view of the valley. The bathrooms are perfect, the bed is cosy. The staff is very friendly, helpful and timely. The food is great and they have a variety on offer for the breakfast. You can choose any room as all the rooms are facing the valley. Don't forget to spend some time for the bicycle ride which you can enjoy for free in the mountains. They have 2-3 nice bicycles which you can hop onto & ride off. Definitely one of the best places in Munnar for a nice luxurious stay at an affordable cost.
