For a 3 star, this is not what I was expecting. It actually gets a little creepy to have insects and frogs all around, it was almost like I was camping in a forest. Terrible food. Dirty bathrooms. The only good part was this sweet guy from the resort who took us around their plantations and the resort. I will not recommend this hotel to any traveler.

Access: The resort is located at the distance of 25kms from the nearest main towns of both Cumbam and Kumily. For those who has through thier own vehicle may not be problem and others have to hire a cab. The resort also arranges for pickup and drop either from Kumily or Cumbam, but the fare is on the little higher side. Parking: The Hotel has no covered parking but has space to park about six cars, just in front of its entrance. Location: The resort is beautifully located among a plantation. The resort is about 50 acres, but has only about 25 cottages. Most of the places are used for plantations. They have plantation of Cardomom, Pepper, Tea, Coffee, Clove, Coco, Vanilla etc., The Front desk: The staff was reasonably helpful. We reached the resort by 8AM and the room was ready for us, even throug the check in time mentioned was only at 12 noon. They didn't charge anything extra for early checkin. The Room: We had booked a Delux Cottage with an extra bed.

Resort is very well maintained and clean. lot of different staying options. If combined with the other Kailasm property which they have for sightseeing Carmelia havens can give the twin benefit of Munnar and Thekkady. Food quality, service, menu, taste everything very good. Only thing required is bathroom cleanliness. The tiles require an extra cleaning.

* Rooms were OK in nature...not very clean. However, the overall plantation inside the resort was nice. * Hot water was available in the bathroom which was great in cold weather. * Service was below standard...they did not have enough towels, blankets etc and needed multiple reminders * The food in the restaurant (both Breakfast and Dinner) was average * They were supposed to provide us Cave Room on our arrival but they could not as the same was occupied but someone else. They instead moved us to a Cottage and did not compensate for this unwanted shift by stating Cottage was more expensive than Cave Room. * The best part experience was the complimentary "Jungle Safari" in their other property called Kailasham, located at a distance of 23 KM.

This resort is actually 25 km from Thekkady in a village. Deluxe cottage is totally damp and you cloths smell because of dampness. This village do not have proper electricity supply.. The first evening the resort management did not turn on the generator and the lights and fan were running on very low voltage. Deluxe cottage is average standard. Room door and the furniture were all broken. We had a pathetic situation, as the hot water stopped running after half a bucket of water. I was half way through bathing. The Hotel management did not regret for this problem and told me that this is a small technical problem. Resort management need several folds improvement in hospitality and guest service front. The only best service and the most I liked was the dining option. We could eat best food through out our stay. I do not recommend this hotel for a serious traveler.

The resort is excellently placed inside a plantation with isolated and calm surroundings. The staff was very friendly and shared lots of information about the vicinity areas. The Cave room concept was innovative though ventilation could be improved. The bathroom was clean with all basic facilities. The other accommodation option is a treehouse here,which is definitely worth staying. The food was excellent with decent number of choices. For the money being charged, the resort can offer some freebies like welcome drink and also organise some activities. In short, it is worth staying here for atleast 2 days.

We stayed in the Tree house which is situated ~300 meters inside from the main reception building & restaurant. Location wise, this was an excellent location - with lots of trees around the room, excellent plantations, etc. We found issues in the service provided, perhaps due to its location inside. Response to the room service call was extremely poor. This location had all types of Spice plantations to see & Staff people were extremely co-operative to show all such plantations. Good hotel to recommend to others, however its location is too far from Thkkady (Perriyar Lake - 25km) & this point needs to be noted while planning necessary booking & visit to lake.
