“Huge Campus....GREEN GREEN”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

Heard a lot about this place and finally i booked my stay in Carmelia Haven....lets start with location : its very huge around 55 acres between the plantations and trees.....many rooms ... I suggest to stay only in deluxe cottages as rest of the cottages are too old and dirty....i gave 4* only for this reason.....rooms are not gr8 as seen on website....i can say decent rooms not gr8....food was amazing....kerala massage was good...kailasam is superb experience in a jeep ride....had a decent stay in Carmelia Haven !

Stayed September 2013, travelled as a couple

We stayed in a jacuzzi villa. Rooms are really good & clean. Good privacy & wonderful climate. Good food & service. Staff are well mannered. The only problem we faced was there were no hot water in jacuzzi. Overall, a good place.

We stayed here for 1 night but 2 full days. It was like a blessing in disguise. We stayed here while our Kerela Trip and due to some strike on the day we were to checkin we checked in very early around 6 am. The property was really very good. Its a huge property with lush green landscaping. Rooms were of big size and a good bathroom. Has a very good spa. Its food was amazing and Chefs were very cooperative. it was a value for money. Being a off season he had a good stay here and a very good service.

Enjoyed the two day package. The staff was courteous, helpful and made the stay extremely pleasant with a variety of food to choose from.. The location is adorable. The ayurvedic massage and the trip to the hilltop made it all the more enjoyable. While taking guests to kailasam trip it is advisable to caution heart patients, pregnant women, aged persons etc., of the risks involved.

Room Tip: The cottages are well kept and guarantees absolute privacy

THE AMBIENCE WAS GOOD. THE STAFFS ARE VERY COURTEOUS AND HELPFUL. THE FOOD HAS LOT OF VARIETY AND IS VERY TASTY. The resort is easily accessible, the climate is perfect. the visit to kailasam was adventurous. jeep safari to the top most point at kailasam was a unique experience but not suited for aged people.

Carmelia was my first destination during my Kerala Trip. Trust me the Staff is very helpful and courteous. NO Rudeness during the stay. Take my words, that the Location of the Resort is truely the best of its kind. The nights are truly awesome. You can hear the insects and other Birds Chirping and there voices. The only and the major setback is the food and the restaurant.
The food is not at all to the mark and the restaurant is not having proper ambience in lieu with the exterior location. Team Carmelia the exterior of your resort is sooperb but need to work on redesigning of your restaurant, your menu and even your Chef and its team. Leaving apart the food & Restaurant i rate Carmelia as The Best resort in Thekkady.....

Room Tip: Dont go for Jacuzzi Villa. Rather i would suggest to take the Deluxe Cottage which are facing the Sp...
