We entered from the main gate of resort and OMG it was really like a Heaven. Love at first sight with the resort. Carmelia has occupied a hill which is close to gate and have planted Trees of Tea and it the center of that hill they have made their Reception. Absolutely lovely reception than any Hotel in my entire... More

Huge property you have to walk around a half of kilometer to reach your quarter from reception. Hotel is surrounded by lush green tea gardens and other plantations. Separate duplex quarter stay facility and each duplex quarters are some what away from each other-So it will give farm house stay like nice experience. Food is bad and in night only... More

Carmelia Haven is a beautiful plantation resort filled with spice plants. They have a variety of rooms, amazing food and exception staff. Definitely an experience worth your money. Only disappointment was that the Jacuzzi in the 'Jacuzzi Room' did not have hot water which is shame and does not serve the purpose of a Jacuzzi at all.

It was heaven, our stay at this haven. There are times you need to get close to the nature and feel it's love. This is the place for it. The staff were angels and the food nectar. Little was needed and nothing ever demanded. Deep in the mountains and so far up, this is the place I shall go again... More

27 kms from Thekaddy town this resort is serenity personified. Set amidst a tea garden dotted with few taller trees , a perfect setting for a lazy holiday. The cool freshness of the air around , the refreshing welcome drink and the cackle of a flock of guinea hens greeted us as we set foot from the long drive from... More

We went for holiday to Kerala in Feb 2011 and during our visit to Thekkady we stayed in Carmelia and loved it. The location is amazing in the lap of nature and the rooms are suited to the theme of the place and that adds to another dimension. The food was amazing in the restaurant and the staff was very...

Not easy to find places that will happily serve beer - this is one - although in disguise. Large rooms with beautiful view of the trees in the estate (go for upstairs). Nice buffet dinner. Low water pressure and fittings a little tired. Easy to get lost at night to find your way back to your room from the restaurant-... More

My wife and I stayed here for just one day. We stayed in a tree house which is a must if you have not stayed in one. The suites are spread out with a lot of privacy. There are only 2 tree houses and they book fast. The rest are regular suites. One gets dropped off at their cabin/treehouse in... More

Carmelia Haven was suggested by my family members who has been there couple of times. The plantation resort was a great retreat. They have nature bounded activities such as walk trails, hiking and jeep safari to view the plantations. Kolumban restaurant inside the resort served good buffet spread. I strictly recommend this place for those who like to live with... More
