Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), India17 contributions2 helpful votes
As they say - timelessness awaits. You can just sit and relax enjoying the picturesque natural beauty. Cottages are located in middle of cardamom and tea plantation and the wooden heritage rooms really adds to the beauty. Special thanks to the chef, who did entertain us with authentic kerala taste for whatever he makes. The staff was really attentive for whatever we requested them. There were some indoor games like carrom, chess, archery for entertaining kids. Being said that, we felt the closeness to nature did have other effect as well. As it was a rainy season, we had some close encounters with leach & snail both inside and outside the rooms. The top wooden deck was left open and it brought insects like spider and dust inside rooms. I felt cottages like Cardamom and Vanilla should be the first choice here.

Its a sudden trip planned to Panchalimedu, and we choose Paradisa to stay one night. We got a hearty welcome by staff. As It's a Plantation retreat ambience is awsome and we have enjoyed the serenity. Excellent service and food is delicious too. We are planning for a long stay on next trip.

It was a heavenly experience!! The best part is you won't see any other buildings or man made things other than from the resort you stay. It's deep into nature and can see the creator's art. You get to kiss the clouds almost every time you are outside the doors. The chef's skills are highly appreciated, my little ones are not a fan of food, but they left the plates clean after eating, I haven't seen them enjoy food like this.

We travelled as a family from the backwaters into the hills Most of the rooms are an architectural masterpiece. The location is peaceful and stunning, far away from the nearest road. The food is terrific. No chance of an upset stomach at Paradisa, The staff are the kindest people you will ever come across. Paradisa is not a place to be missed. Use Paradisa as a base and visit the surrounding areas from there as day trips. air-conditionng is not available here , but believe me, neither it’s needed. You will be fully entertained and there is nothing better than sleeping with the windows open and the cool mountain breeze given you a perfect night sleep. No mosquitoes either. As the name indicates it’s heaven on earth
