We stayed at the Carmelia Haven for 3 nights, it was a little out of the way for the main town of Thekkady but the resort was peaceful and lovely. Great rooms with attentive staff but the food lets you down. The first evening there was not a lot available on the menu and when I did get my chicken... More

We came across this place while searching for a tree house stay in Kerala. Initially I was a bit tentative about the tree house plan as i was afraid of insects and all, but to our pleasant surprise it turned out to be one of our best stays. The place has just 2 tree houses which were occupied by the... More

Our stay in the resort was a part of our honeymoon package. We were welcomed in a warm and professional way. Room was clean, spacious and very comfortable with pool view. You can find cardomam pantation in the whole resort. You can play caromboard, table tennis, chess, cricket and badminton. Food was very delicious and best that we had on... More

Not recommended for family visits at all. Few if the staff members are extremely rude and don't understand that hospitality business runs on customer satisfaction. Overall I feel that resort owner doesn't care about how customer feels and want to run the business this way only. You can see many posts in reviews about behavioural issues of staff and I... More

I was here for only a few hours, but still, I found this place very beautiful. The tea plantations, the tree houses and the huge gardens make it an experience to stay here. When I walked in, a man was playing the flute, when I walked around, I found all these crazy looking flowers and plants and all the staff... More

This was part of my honeymoon trip. This place is amazing. The service was courteous. The rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. The food was good too. Part of our package here was a short jeep safari to a nearby private property, and the hillock next to it. The entire property is spread on a vast space, and while it... More

We arrived at the Carmelia resort very late after a full day at the National Park. We received a warm and professional welcome and were shown to our room, which was spacious, well decorated with a lovely bathroom - all very boutique in finish. The beds were large and comfortable - and provide a good nights sleep. The aircon worked... More

It was one of the best experience I have, staying in a exclusive resort. The best part is, it is not primarily made to be a resort. It was a private property in Vandanmedu ( Away from Thekkedy) which is famous for cardamom and different type of spice farming. This property is basically in lap of the farming facility. It... More

I and my Friends went to stay one night at this hotel but we all really enjoyed our short time stay there. We were welcomed by the traditional ARATHI and placing traditonal குங்குமம் on our face..
