The heritage plantation retreat called Urumbi Hill Palace is nestled amidst the Urumbi Hills. The hills are somewhere between Vagamon and Kuttikanam in Kerala. The place is far removed from the bustling noises and pollution. At an altitude of 3500 ft above sea level, the Urumbi Hill Palace has plantations, scenic landscapes and exotic flora and fauna surrounding it. The retreat has three categories of rooms namely Suites, Deluxe and Standard.
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.
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.
