Cardamom House is a long way from anywhere. But the journey is worth every minute. A beautiful, tranquil setting; comfortable rooms; an immaculate pool; and far better personal service than you'll get in most five star hotels. This was our second visit and we were delighted to find that the team were still together and as friendly and efficient as we remembered.
The food, though a set menu, is very good. We are about to cook Pandi's Burmese chicken curry recipe which he gave us. But do remember that they do not have a drinks licence.
Do not go to Cardamom House if you want a bland top-tier hotel with all the facilities. But if you want a unique, informal, friendly experience that gives a real taste of rural southern India, there can be nowhere better.
