The hotel was booked by my nephew and we had no idea on the kind of place it was going to be. The drive from Munnar to Paradisa Retreat was long and arduous and even when we got close to the nearest village, there were no sign posts to the resort. Luckily our car driver spoke to local lingo and...

The Paradisa offers a very different type of luxury to your usual 5 star hotels. The cottages, perched on the hillside, are in the traditional Kerala style. There is a refreshing simplicity about the accommodation, no air-conditioning, no glass in the windows just solid shutters and heavy wooden doors. Our rooms were spotlessly clean and every evening the staff fogged...

Paradisa Plantation Retreat was the first destination on our Kerala trip in August 2012. This is a resort which is nicely hidden away on an off beat track on route to Thekkady / Periyar. So much so that we missed it the first time around and had to call the resort to get directions. Once you reach the resort, you...
