Reviewed 17 November 2017

I would say our stay here was the main highlight of the trip to Thekkady. Starting with the location....It is aptly located approx. 25 kms from the sounds and crowds of the city (isolated and peaceful) exactly what how it should be.
Coming to the property....its sprawling over many acres of land surrounded with beautiful hilly scenery.
Have some beautiful, cozy cottages (each one at distance from another). Cottage was clean, well laid out with wooden works all over, well furnished, with all facilities. Clean bathrooms with all fresh toiletries and proper provisions of hot and cold water.
Food was awesome and room service is good.
A special dedicated zone for indoor games (Fooseball, carom, chess etc.)...conference room for group fun activities....battery operated cars for luggage, and for your pick up and drop to cottages from reception (cottages are quite far from reception).
A very well maintained swimming pool with very sophisticated staff.
overall a *5 Star* property to spend some quality time in the hills of Thekkady.

Room Tip: cottage 205, 206 are awesome...and don't forget the pool

This was our 2nd visit to this beautiful resort. After a hectic schedule at work this was just the perfect 2 night break for us. The peace and serene charm of this plantation resort is just too good to be true. The awesome hospitality of the Resort Manager Mr. Jiju James and his team of House Keeping / Front Office/ Spa Dr. JISHNU and the service staff is like the icing on the cake. I wish the Team Carmelia all the very best for many more years. They also won a best resort award which is well deserved...I would highly recommend this place ...

I been to this Carmelia Haven Resort and the service there is pathetic. Once you book the room, they doesn't bother about the hospitality, I was about to check in and had to wait for a buggy (golf car) for an hour and a half but couldn't get it came walking from the one end of the resort to the reception about 500mt. Staff was so irresponsible that they didn't feel guilty about it. Very bad experience, I haven't got such experience ever before in my life. And on the top of everything it is 30km away from Town.
Will not recommend to anyone.
