I like the concept of being in the middle of cardamom plantation. The hotel was a bit far from anywhere but that just mean it offers you serenity. I love our high room with almost 360 degree view of the surrounding green. The premise is big enough to explore but I wished the place was more alive. I think the...

To be fair, the hotel was nice but our expectation got high because of the picture on their website and the hotel we stayed in Munnar. We wanted to stay in a tree house, and we narrowed down our option to 2 hotels, our travel agent managed to book us in Carmelia Haven. The propety sits on a huge plantation,...

I arrived here on an OAT trip, and found it beautiful, but with a difficult check in process. I got to my assigned room which looked great, but the lock didn't work. Hard to get in, and impossible to lock when you leave! They tried to give me another room, but that room was substandard, and I really preferred the...

The rooms and the facilities are spread out over the property. You can expect to walk aways to the hotel's restaurant depending on the location of your room. The food and the service were excellent. The theme of the property would seem to be "living with nature". Numerous local plant varieties are located throughout the property.

Very nice and quiet hotel. Peaceful Retreat The tree house was away from all the other rooms and restaurant. We felt like Robinson Crusoe. So calm and Staff are very nice. We really enjoyed our stay. We did a trek in the plantation around the hotel.

It really was an awesome place. The rooms and restaurants were awesome. The new year party conducted was really superb. The spread of the buffet for dinner that night was good. We had a very good time and would definitely visit again. But my only complaint would be that the jacuzzi pools and outdoor shower should have hot water connections....

This place is just beautiful. It is so vast. We were able to visit the plantation. They also have a cardamom factory close by that we could visit. We had the most pleasant stay here.
