An excellent place to stay! Amazing hospitality, real nice food and so much peace. The nature trail was really amazing since it was a huge property! Amazing country side feeling and sad I didn't get to stay at the tree house as it was unavailable. Wanted to stay longer! Loved it..!!

Sadly, we only stayed at this location one night but it was lovely. Yes, it is isolated, but very restful and quiet. The day before we arrived, I was struck with "Delhi belly" and was very ill. I had tried Imodium and Lomotil to no avail. So I made an appointment for a free consultation with the ayurveda doctor. Her...

If you want to stay in a secluded location, this one is nice. Our room (tree house) did have issues with plumbing in the bathroom, but otherwise was fine. I enjoyed the food in the restaurant. The Staff was the most friendly/professional of all the places we stayed in Kerala. There is spotty WiFi in two locations on the premises....

Carmelia Haven is literally a haven for weary travelers. Located in a cardamom plantation, the hotel is aesthetically pleasing and the location, mildly put is phenomenal! Highly recommend! The room with Jacuzzi pool is really good.

We booked three rooms recently on a family holiday. First thing you need to know is that whatever they say in terms of distance from Kochi airport may be correct in terms of kilometres. But it's a 5 hr trip that feels like 15. Because of the winding roads chances of hurling are very high. When you finally get there,...

Carmelia Haven is seriously one of the best resorts in Thekkady. we have been there for 2 days in december 2014 for our first anniversary celebration, the stay over there was excellent... we stayed on deluxe cottage, which was very nice, neat, and clean. The ambiance was very nice. the room was spacious, so was the bathroom. everything over there...

It is a beautiful resort. I spent 2 nights there during my vacation. Those who want to enjoy the feel of forest, it is a very nice palce to stay. Common pool was not very clean. I could not get a tree house. Definetly will go back there to experiance the tree house stay.
