This was one of our favorite spots during our stay in South India. Carmelia Haven is set on a cardamom and tea plantation on a beautiful lot in the hills of South India. Though it is a good 40-minute drive outside of Periyar, you don't want to be anywhere else when you're here. We did go to the Tiger Reserve... More

This place is beautiful, but the managers are cranky, they have lots of DON'Ts to the guests. First of all they need to realize its an hospitality industry, Guests come here to relax or take a break themselves from their usual routine. I find them to be bullying and showing attitude to guests which is very bad and spoils the... More

An excellent place to stay! Amazing hospitality, real nice food and so much peace. The nature trail was really amazing since it was a huge property! Amazing country side feeling and sad I didn't get to stay at the tree house as it was unavailable. Wanted to stay longer! Loved it..!!

Sadly, we only stayed at this location one night but it was lovely. Yes, it is isolated, but very restful and quiet. The day before we arrived, I was struck with "Delhi belly" and was very ill. I had tried Imodium and Lomotil to no avail. So I made an appointment for a free consultation with the ayurveda doctor. Her... More

If you want to stay in a secluded location, this one is nice. Our room (tree house) did have issues with plumbing in the bathroom, but otherwise was fine. I enjoyed the food in the restaurant. The Staff was the most friendly/professional of all the places we stayed in Kerala. There is spotty WiFi in two locations on the premises.... More
