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

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!

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

I preferred this hotel based on the rating, but really got disappointed after reaching there. At first we have booked one room type as said by my friend, but after reaching staff members told that those room types are filled and they are shifting me to higher category. Room was quiet good in respect to amenities, but AC was not... More

The hotel consists of very well-equipped cottages laid out on a hillside surrounded by helpfully labelled trees and shrubs, with plenty of space between. It might have been my imagination, but the air smelt quite spicy! Each unit has an outside terrace with chairs and ours looked across to a flame tree. The restaurant and pool are at the centre...
