How could they justify spending so much on the new reception (opened the day we arrived) when the rooms obviously need a lot of T.L.C. This was off our normal tour and not suggested by the tour agent. I was expecting it to be quite basic but did not say too much to my wife and when we arrived and...

I had been to the place above 7 years back. The trip was more memorable as I was newly married and it is like our second honey moon. Overall the amenities are lovely to have a great holiday. The Propery is set in a estate and landscapes are good to have a walk around in any part of the day...

The manager mentioned that only "non heated" Jacuzzi is available. in such cold weather non heated Jacuzzi is unfit.The Jacuzzi package is priced at 25000, but Jacuzzi is unfit. When...

Just as one of us says 'wow', someone from staff climbs the tree and shake it so that oranges started falling on the ground. we only need to pick them and eat them up. Walking in coffee, cardamom plant was awesome. We had...

I had gone along with my family and we had a good time there. The staff were very helpful. The food was excellent. The cottages were extremely good and comfortable. However, the downside was that we were unable to use the pool as it was not cleaned and, the paths were poorly lit in the night.

Carmelia Haven is a resort in a very large plantation (around 55 acres). You can rent cottages, a tree house, or a jacuzzi cottage. There are few rooms nestled amidst thick vegetation consisting of small,, large and very large trees. There are buggies to go around in, if one is so inclined. The staff is very helpful and courteous. The...
