Carmelia Haven is a stylish, eco friendly resort set amidst a tea and cardamom plantation where guests will be in communion with many of nature's many splendored charms. Situated close to the village of Vandanmedu, a half hour drive from Thekkady along the Thekkady - Munnar road, the area is the world's largest producer of premium quality cardamom. A mountain road travels through a series of stunningly beautiful landscapes, climbing gradually at first and then winding into tighter turns, moving forward, moving higher. Turn into Carmelia Haven, onto a drive way, past the building housing the reception, a handicrafts store, the leisure area and a couple of suites. A gazebo sits on a manicured lawn in front with wrought iron furniture that guests can lounge in. Further on along the path is the resort's multi cuisine restaurant with a verandah and banquets area both built with a stone fa?ade and a thatch roof. Stone paved pathways branch out along a ridge towards two ends of the property. Fringed on either edge by lush cardamom bushes, vines of pepper and clearings with fruit trees, guests are transported on electric carts to cottages set along the hill's slope. The deluxe cottages lie along one arm of the spur, the path ending below the tree houses. The trail extending in the opposite direction leads to the honeymoon cottages and the Jacuzzi villas. At the bottom of the valley is the resorts spacious swimming pool with loungers shaded by umbrellas. Birds sing their welcome, shy squirrels scamper into the underbrush. Lay back: accompanied by the seductive scents of clove, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, succumb to the tender ministrations of branches bearing oranges, mangostene, jackfruit, rambuttan, butterfruit, papaya and rose apple.

This resort is amazing, spread around 55 acre of land in a cardom planations and they have variety of accommodation types including Jacuzzi villa and tree house. It is defenitly an experience staying in Carmelia Haven and it is worth paying accommodation and food. It is bit away from Thekkady, but a kind of experience that you will never get in Thekkady but in Carmelia haven only. The food is superb whether breakfast or dinner. Buffet is with good spread and delecious. The property having an activity to go for a trekking to Kailasapara which is an excellent entertainment and do not miss it.

The service and hospitality at Carmelia is on another level. The staffs makes you feel special and genuinely takes care of us. My 3 year old son had a blast with them especially with Restaurant staffs Anjana and Sri Lakshmi. And the food prepared by Chef Sanal is absolutely divine. Different types of cuisine, candle light dinner, the way he prepared food to our taste is simply amazing. Mr. Saneesh, helped us with the routes to the places to visit nearby. It was an unforgettable experience. Will definitely visit Carmelia again some day.

Being a Vegetarian, I am always skeptical but here the Chef Mr. Sanal, Ms. Anjana, Mr. Tashi and Ms. Sri Lakshmi gave some amazing tasty food for our family for 2 days. Everytime the food was tasty. The rooms are so spacious and clean. Jeep Safari, Nature Walk, Boating was just amazing. Overall, we all have a very nice experience visiting Carmelin Heaven Resort.
