Nice Decent property. well spread out. just had a one night stay at the hotel. however, didn't find the staff much co-operative and at a point of time felt like they were obliging us by giving a room. at the time of check out was happy that the journey was for just one night.

Wished I had more than one nights here at this location, Its amazing resort and excellent service. Great Interior and large rooms. Hospitality was good. The location is quite far a drive from near by attraction/population. The food with restaurant is amazing with lots of varieties.

What a fantastic place, we stayed fro one night but would love to have stayed longer, the lodges were excellent, the setting is really beautiful and there are treehouse rooms if your lucky enough to get one it's an experience well worth it. We had an early start for trip to a Tiger reserve all arranged by our host. We reluctantly left afterwards but we will return here one day soon.

I stayed here in two places... one was deluxe suite and then the tree house.

nothing spl about the deluxe suite,.. but the tree house was very nice.. though you would get chills in the night due to branches moving due to wind... its a must try...

The restaurant is good... the property trek is good... its best when tried with rain :)

The massage center is good... the staff are friendly...

The trip to 'Kuran Kurathi' peak is a must try... the wind is so much that it can carry you ( literally )

The cardamon factory walk is also good..

as for the "All spice" drink ... this is yum !

certainly will try this again !!!!

Room Tip: Avoid dormitory or the regular rooms.. try the tree house.. they have only 2 of them... cave rooms a...

We stayed at Carmelia Haven in their tree houses for 2 days and 1 night. The treehouses were comfortable and well maintained, and offered the enchanting views and experiences we were looking for! Every morning we could hear a beautiful chorus of birds singing outside our window, and it was pleasant to spend time on the porch or swing of the tree houses, enjoying the peace and quiet and beautiful surroundings.

The staff was also excellent, very friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. There was a strike during our visit so we could not take part in any of the typical activities, and were on the resort for the duration of our stay, but still enjoyed ourselves. The staff made sure we still enjoyed our stay despite the strike, and lead us a on a nature walk through the grounds, and had a cooking demonstration that was informative, interesting, and delicious!

All our meals at the restaurant were fresh and delicious, and the service was excellent! Their dessert chef made us a special dessert for dinner!

Room Tip: Highly recommend the treehouses, though we did not get an opportunity to see what the other accomoda...

Carmelia Haven is a wonderful resort , right in the middle of tea and cardamom plantations. Its so peaceful and so far from the hubbub of city life. A ideal place to unwind and get in tune with nature. An ideal place to spend quality time with family. The staff was very courteous and caring. The rooms and food was also very good. We would most definitely be going back. Its good value for money.

Fantastic stay. The experience was wonderful. Cave room specifically was so spacious & more than a room. The cave look around the room was awsome.

Also, Tree house was very nice. Very nice place. full of greenery and the view out of the room was too good. Very pleasant & happy stay.

Carmelia heaven rocks. Food was also very good. And the people around for serving food was also fabulous. Would recommend to add a variety of juices in the breakfast.

:) 5*

Room Tip: Choose Tree Room. It was very good experience to stay there.
