We enjoyed our stay very much and did not have any issues. However, I wish there were paper copies of maps of Kerala/local area. We are used to getting maps from the hotels showing points of interest nearby, etc.More

About
Description
The bridge to Shalimar, over a mountain stream meandering through the resort, transcends you to another world, seemingly untouched by man. Shalimar Spice Garden is a celebration of scents and colours. ...More Pepper vines snake through your room balconies, butterflies dance to the sound of silence and orchids smile into your windows every morning. This Sublime Journey through waterfalls, tea estates, spice & vegetable plantations, and Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary only enhances the invitation to live the Shalimar experience. Less
