I had visited July 2015 with my office colleagues and stayed one day. It is good place if you need peace and nature lover. They have own restaurant and food taste is good. Swimming pool was too good.If you prefer cottage than rooms you would never leave from there. It is good place for couples and such a romantic place.... More

Our family had a nice stay at Carmelia Haven. Carmelia haven is situated in the lush Cardomom estate of Thekkady in a serene setting. The carefully managed ambiance worth mentioning with a affectionately served delicacies. The site seeing trips are well managed and provides a rich experience in the lap of mother nature. I recommend this strongly.
