We have just returned after spending a day in the resort. Excellent place to spend a weekend. Hospitality was too good. Worth for money. Very well maintained. Food was good. Bird watching - photographers can find a lot more varities of birds to capture.

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.
