HI, Carmelia Haven is one of the best resorts in Thekkady. It's a plantation resort with over 50+ acres of land surrounded by tea & cardamom. We stayed at Private Jacuzzi Villa. Rooms were good, so was the service. I would say food was okay & over prized. During our stay the common pool was shut down due to some...

How could they justify spending so much on the new reception (opened the day we arrived) when the rooms obviously need a lot of T.L.C. This was off our normal tour and not suggested by the tour agent. I was expecting it to be quite basic but did not say too much to my wife and when we arrived and...

I have not been to this place. I was almost close to confirming the Jacuzzi villa at this resort. However I wrote to them asking if the Jacuzzi is usable. The manager mentioned that only "non heated" Jacuzzi is available. in such cold weather non heated Jacuzzi is unfit.The Jacuzzi package is priced at 25000, but Jacuzzi is unfit. When...

What we like: While roaming around the resort, we find orange tree with oranges hanging on them. Just as one of us says 'wow', someone from staff climbs the tree and shake it so that oranges started falling on the ground. we only need to pick them and eat them up. Walking in coffee, cardamom plant was awesome. We had...
