Lovely location albeit a bit far! Beautiful site. Very comfortable beds. Well attended by staff. It was not busy at all when we there despite being high season, so I am not sure why. Food was excellent but given its location, one is certainly captive to eat all meals there. It would be more reasonable if it was not on... More

We were so well looked after here by everybody. The rooms are gorgeous and the views utterly spectacular. Simon, the owner, has created a very special piece of heaven, with lots of ancient stone pillars, antiques and local materials. He has so clearly thoroughly enjoyed bringing Paradisa into existance and it is infectious. He is an entertaining, informative and generous... More

This is certainly a 'get away from it all' place! We were met by Simon as got out of our car and he made us very welcome indeed. On the first afternoon there was a walk around the neighborhood and then the next day Simon took us to a tea plantation and factory to see tea being harvested and produced.... More

Thank you for your review. We count ourselves fortunate to be is this beautiful location and are happy to have shared it with you.

This is billed as a retreat and it certainly gives you great peace and quiet. The service by all was fantastic and simon was a very gracious host. I think there are a couple of suggestions I would make, one being a few more seats around the pool. There were only four but plenty of room for a few more.... More

Best on our trip will return. Personal attention for everything. Perfect excursion and plenty of quiet areas in cabin or common area to read and relax. Pool is nice with amazing view. Must do the walks and tea tour organized by Simon and his team. In fact, Simon is what really made the experience as he cares so much about... More

This was hospitality at it's best. Paradisa is located high in the hills near Thekkady and of course it's remote, that's part of the charm - the sheer solitude and beauty of the place was complimented by the wonderful generosity of the owner, Simon, and his staff. For a family of 4 Cardammon Cottage was perfect, the food was as... More

We booked following a recommendation and enjoyed the trip to this out of the way place in the mountains. We were met on arrival by our host Simon, a generous and erudite host who enjoys the art of conversation. He is extremely knowledgeable and takes great personal interest and pride in his retreat. The cabins are delightful, though not air-conditioned... More

A remarkable hotel in the middle of the forest/jungle, carved into the side. The view is remarkable. The cabins have no A/C but there are fans and that is enough for a peaceful sleep. The food is good and staff, under Simon the owner, are welcoming and friendly. The hot water left much to be desired! It is clean and... More

The hotel was booked by my nephew and we had no idea on the kind of place it was going to be. The drive from Munnar to Paradisa Retreat was long and arduous and even when we got close to the nearest village, there were no sign posts to the resort. Luckily our car driver spoke to local lingo and... More
