This property is deep in the countryside on the side of a valley with magnificent views to the mountains and the lake. The property is small and intimate and the British owner Chris has chosen and trained his staff very well to provide you attentive and friendly service and they seem to genuinely care about their guests.

We sometime get guests who arrive and stay at the same time as an anniversary -Bbirthday, Marriage etc.) We all try to rise to the occasion! Sorry if the "Cardamom House Happy Birthday Chorale" was sometimes out of tune. Hope to see you again for your next birthday - which will give me time to rehearse the notes a bit...

This place revealed its beauty with the kindness and dedication of Chris and its staff. Despite its remote location, we enjoyed the relaxing touch of nature, the views and the exceptional food quality. The walk through Athoor was a highlight.

We stayed 2 nights and had a great time. The place is beautiful and well maintained. Staff is lovely and helpful, meals are delicious and they do their best to meet your expectations. It's a nice and small place, you will be sharing space and diners with the other guests (so don't go if you want to be alone !)....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
AN OVERVIEW! Nestling in the Eastern foothills of the mighty Western Ghats, "Cardamom House" overlooks the monsoon dependent "Kamarajar Lake" and is surrounded by unbelievably beautiful mountainous scenery. Recently we have completely upgraded all facilities and now have a superb modern SWIMMING POOL ; FREE WI-FI ; AIR-CONDITIONING ; NEW THICK SPRING MATTRESSES ; VOLLEYBALL FIELD ; H.D. TV IN COMMUNAL AREA ; CHILDREN WELCOME!!The staff have been working together as a team for some 16 years - and several of them (having visited the U.K) speak English. We are proud of our cuisine which encompasses a wide range of culinary styles (Indian, Continental, Thai, Chinese - and we often 'invent' recipes ourselves! Food is of the highest quality and we purchase only the freshest of fresh vegetables sometimes twice a day - to ensure the 'pick of the crop'.BIRD LIFE AND WILDLIFE? There is an abundance of Birdlfe including peacocks and many others. Leopard, black panther, lynx, jungle cat, bison, sambar,barking and mouse deer have also been spotted from time to time. HOW TO GET HERE? CHENNAI(MADRAS) airport is a 45 minute flight from both MADURAI and TRICHY Airports - both an easy 2 hour drive away. So despite being in a very remote place, we are very easy to get to!THINGS TO DO? Relaxing : walking : photography : swimming : yoga : meditation : Village Tour : Madurai Temple : Kodaikanal Hill Station. In summary - our little "Family Homestay" owned and managed by Dr. Chris - a retired British physician. Cardamom House is a perfect place to 'drop out' and have a truly relaxing holiday whilst being 'spoiled rotten' by our excellent staff. ... more   less
