A very good property..... nice Villa, good food, nice n kind hospitality and good estates and lawn ... the weather is cool enough. The only setback was the Villa that I stayed which is jacuzzi pool villa... looking at the weather over there, it's good to have a heated jacuzzi pool as we might not be able to use the...

We took a tree house on first day and then cottage for second day.. The food was incredibly good and the service was too good... Even if we were late for breakfast they served us everytime.. The resort gives the traveller their own space and Ayurvedic spa was very good.. The location in the middle of the forest is like...

This hotel is located in the middle of a tea plantation and is beautiful. The rooms had free WiFI (not predictable), coffee and tea, a pool (really dirty, could not use), TV. It was interesting that there was an indoor and outdoor shower. Negatives: No air conditioning, no safe, no mini-fridge, no hair dryer, and boring food Positive: Spa messages...

Beautiful grounds, physical plant a little rough around the edges. Reminded me of those 1960s all in resorts in places like Florida were you never have to leave the place. Very clean. Great food and super friendly service, especially in the restaurant. No alcohol.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in mid-February, ‘17 as part of a group tour of southern India. The Carmelia Haven is set in a working tea and spice plantation about an hour’s drive from the Tiger Preserve to the south. The hilltop location is beautiful, and the common buildings are very stylish with lots of glass...

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.
