Editor's Review

Urumbi Hill Palace is in an isolated location at a high altitude. The weather is pleasant and the property is well-maintained. You get some great natural views around the place. The rooms are a little rustic and spacious. But you can’t expect them to be very well-kept and also you cannot expect top-class services and professional hospitality.


  • Splendid views throughout.
  • Well-maintained property with a good garden.
  • Nice waterfalls nearby.
  • Pleasant climate because of the altitude. 


  • Difficult to reach.
  • No internet and poor network connectivity for mobiles.
  • Hospitality maybe a little unprofessional.


  • Safe Parking
  • Room Service

Detailed Info

Urumbi Hill Palace is a beautiful plantation stay that has natural beauty all around it. Nestled among the hills at an altitude of 3500 ft above sea level, the retreat not only offers a pleasant and tranquil atmosphere but also some splendid views. Mountain slopes, tea and cardamom plantations, scenic landscape and the colourful flora and fauna are what make the place extremely alluring. There is a natural spring nearby where you can take a bath. From a view point near the retreat, you can actually see Cochin, Allepey and Quilon.

Urumbi Hill Palace was built by the British in colonial-style. There are three categories of rooms in the retreat namely suites, deluxe rooms and standard rooms. They are tastefully furnished with modern amenities but they still preserve the old world charm. They are ideal for a plantation stay and have good ventilation along with a beautiful enveloping garden. The rooms also have a fireplace which is pretty much expected from a bungalow built by the British.
