From the first moment on I felt great being in this hotel! Check in was quick and very friendly with fresh flower welcome necklace! We got a nice cottage with a giant bed and nice view over the well designed hotel area. Swimming at the lovely pool was refreshing. The afternoon tea or coffee served by the pool side was... More

Hello Ka R! Happy travellers like you make us happy, too. We agree about there being something ”very special” about the tea/coffee served by the pool. Must be that cool fresh mountain air that is a constant companion on the property. The crispy golden dosas seem to have a growing fan base! The team at All Spice will be glad... More

Myself and three friends stayed here for two nights on a tour through South India and were blown away with the hotel and its surroundings. Upon arrival we treated ourselves to an Ayurvedic massage which proved to be totally worthwhile. We relaxed by the pool, ate some spectacular food and toured around the hotel and surrounding area. The hotel fits... More

Hello Two Agnews! Beginning your stay with an Ayurvedic massage - don’t think it could get more relaxing than that. And our hand-made oils and experienced therapists will definitely have shown you the benefits of this traditional system of healing. Between this and letting the lush greenery make for a soothing ambiance, nobody is too far from the practices and... More

A fabulous wildlife resort where you will be awoken by birds singing. It feels as though you are in the jungle, but you are just steps from shops. Just don't hang your bathing suit on th balcony- a mischievous monkey may run away with it!

Hello Jmp L! At Cardamom County, we enjoy the best of both worlds - the famed Periyar Tiger Reserve is close by, while the town’s offerings are walking distance. Glad to have shared this with you. And, good advice about the monkey business – they can indeed be quite mischievous, but they’re fun neighbors to have when next to a... More

We were disappointed with this hotel, which sounded very good on the reviews. The room and bathroom in particular,was not clean in several places: the shower & toilet working only intermittently. In particular, the push button for the toilet hardly worked at all. The other main problem was the fact that we were put in one of the highest rooms... More

Cardamom County is a lush, tropical property with a distinct eco-friendly mantra that is evident throughout. Despite being walking distance from the local village shops and restaurants, from our room we felt as if we were perched in a beautiful tree house in the middle of the forest. There are a few windows in the room with just screens and... More

This was a lovely hotel. The landscape was beautiful. The room was adequate. The meals were delicious and the location was brilliant. The staff were very friendly and eager to please. This hotel was like a little oasis amid the hustle of country India.

I loved everything about this place! From the lush greenery, to the hillside rooms, the pool and the amazing service. The rooms are like little cottages nestled right into the hillside and come with a balcony. It was very peaceful, all you could hear were the birds and wildlife. The service was exceptional and the food delicious. I also enjoyed... More

Hello Tara W! A lovely time on the hillside is what we hope you had at our resort. The cottages sit pretty and gel with the green canopy because we also prefer that the colours, sounds and the feel of the wild stand out. And experiences, too, like the all-natural massage (using handmade oils from herbs we grow ourselves) you... More
