Stayed at this hotel for 1 day during our Kerla family trip. Cardamom Country is located very close to Elephant Camp which is one of the main activity area for activities like Elephant ride, Kathakali Dance and other Cultural shows. It is located in the middle of the town so someone like to have a stroll around the local market,... More

A pleasant hotel in Thekkady with an attractive layout and comfortable, spacious rooms, very convenient for visits to the Periyar National Park. Its Ayurvedic Centre is an added value, with very attentive and polite personnel.

Staff genuinely warm and happy in their jobs, which creates a really relaxing and warm atmosphere. Our room had a lovely view, very comfortable, spotlessly clean. My tiny criticism would be it was a bit dark, but this was due to a north facing aspect, most of the rooms are and decoration. However the tree top view, and the balcony... More

Loved my stay here while on a tour of South India. Cardamom County is close to Periyar Nature Preserve, centrally located to town and other attractions while also providing a tranquil oasis. The rooms have all the amenities in a natural setting with monkeys and other wildlife on the property. The pool is inviting, the staff super accommodating and the... More

Excellent location right in the middle of town, yet away from all the madness. Staff is extremely courteous and competent. Nice restaurant with good choice of food. Overall ambience is very good. Good value for money

Stayed a couple of nights at this hotel as part of a tour. Our room was in the higher section so need to be fit to reach it. Basic rooms with the bonus of an occasional monkeys visiting on the balcony. A good pool area and the restaurant great. Serving the usual Indian buffet by great staff. Funny set up... More

Hello there! When we were setting up and through over a decade of operations, our focus has been to hold nature close in all that we do. To protect, sustain, and replenish the land we work with. With the Periyar Tiger Reserve right across our gates, we do have the occasional furry visitors. They are largely harmless with the safety... More

Stayed for 2 nights in this impressive hotel during Jan 2016. Rooms were very clean and the staff were extremely courteous. The location of the hotel is ideal just outside the tiger reserve (couple of km) and easily accessible. Walking distance to the market place and Kalaripayatu/Kathakali centers.

Hello Freddy! That’s a perfect one-day tour of this stretch of the hills! Fantastic that you managed to catch the best in just a day! The spice plantations are an eye-opener to the many flavours that go into your food, aren’t they? Hope you managed to take some spices back with you - the Indian variety has a distinct flavour...
