We stayed at Niraamaya Cardamom Club for a night on Aug 13, 2016 and wished we didn't have to leave so soon! The place is one of the most beautiful, relaxing and tranquil places in Kerala. It really is located in the middle of the forest and the road to it is quite rustic and rough supporting the concept of...

Overall we would recommend Cardamom Club. The food was great, the service was excellent. We enjoyed the fresh air on the sitting area outside our room. The shower with the skylight is nice as well. It's in a nice setting, feels remote but also has nice luxurious amenities, like spa. They are building a pool as well. Few critiques: 1)...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Niraamaya Retreats Cardamom Club is a remote hideaway nestled in a cardamom plantation that offers both adrenaline-fuelled adventure and a peaceful retreat. Perched amidst 9 acres of cardamom plantations, verdant groves and lush foliage, our 6-cottage retreat exudes intensely private vibes. The windows of the rustic plantation-style cottages serve as a gateway to the exotic wildlife. The cool and crisp mountain air, the musical calls of exotic birds and the beautiful scenery of Thekkady will revive the senses and leave you enchanted. Niraamaya spa infused with timeless therapeutic traditions from across the world, centred around Ayurveda is the perfect destination for rejuvenation after long treks or exhausting safaris. Cardamom Club which is in complete harmony with nature immensely helps to amplify the therapeutic processes of spa therapies. In-between lounging on hammocks or tucking into gorgeous meals, we highly recommend spice walks and treks to explore the stunning landscape of Thekkady. For the more adventurous, take the Gavi Safari to spot the elusive tiger or get up close and personal with Asian elephantsFor the more adventurous, take the Gavi Safari to spot the elusive tiger or get up close and personal with Asian elephants ... more   less
