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.

We stayed 2 nights at Cardamon House and wished it could have been longer. The rooms are rather quirky with a walk in wet room with solar powered shower which, if you timed your shower correctly, was fine. The food was lovely - freshly cooked and delicious and the staff who looked after us were delightful and very attentive. Chris the owner was a very interesting character and we had several very interesting chats with him. There is also a lovely swimming pool to take a much needed 'cool off' from the heat. Just one warning - you will not be alone in your room, we had a couple of lizards sharing our room which we found lovely! So many thanks to all at Cardamon House, we loved our stay.

What a great team help Chris run Cardamom House. Great home-made soup & fruit light lunch on our arrival before relaxing with our binoculars on the verandah watching the sunbirds. The pool was welcome, the staff super-attentive and helpful. A really relaxing place.

We spent two nights in Lovely Cardamom House. I can't recommend this place highly enough in terms of it's beautiful location, comfortable accommodations, wonderful food, lovely attentive staff and incredibly interesting history that accompanies the former owner that lives there. A great place to truly relax and unwind. Nice pool to dip in too. Anthoor is a small village nearby that is worth a stop for a cup of chai tea and to wander around. The people are very welcoming.

Chris and his team looked after us like royalty. Nothing was too much trouble. Cardamom House is a haven of tranquility near to a monsoon filled lake for great bird watching. The swimming pool makes a great retreat from the heat. We had three delightful nights with meals eaten at communal tables so we met interesting people who were also travelling through the south of India. The only bit we didn’t like was leaving.
