Carmelia Haven is away from Thekkady, however its a beautiful spice plantation with vast grounds and aesthetically designed rooms. The food was good. Staff is also nice. You can simply enjoy exploring the grounds on foot.

Too many check ins, which needed some allowance. We were given the occupation of our villa on time. The staff were friendly and attending to needs as... More
