You know you've found a real gem when you try everything you can to try and change the rest of your holiday itinerary to stay just one more day. Sadly, it wasn't meant to be for us - but it does speak volumes! Paradisa was perfect, and an absolute find - it lived up to our expectations and beyond. Yes,...

We stayed at Paridisa Plantation for 2 nights in the middle of our Kerala holiday as we had been recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. The drive through the mountains was beautiful and, once we arrived, the views from the plantation were even more stunning. Simon and his team were wonderful hosts, making it a sociable experience....

Lovely location albeit a bit far! Beautiful site. Very comfortable beds. Well attended by staff. It was not busy at all when we there despite being high season, so I am not sure why. Food was excellent but given its location, one is certainly captive to eat all meals there. It would be more reasonable if it was not on...

We were so well looked after here by everybody. The rooms are gorgeous and the views utterly spectacular. Simon, the owner, has created a very special piece of heaven, with lots of ancient stone pillars, antiques and local materials. He has so clearly thoroughly enjoyed bringing Paradisa into existance and it is infectious. He is an entertaining, informative and generous...

This is certainly a 'get away from it all' place! We were met by Simon as got out of our car and he made us very welcome indeed. On the first afternoon there was a walk around the neighborhood and then the next day Simon took us to a tea plantation and factory to see tea being harvested and produced....

Thank you for your review. We count ourselves fortunate to be is this beautiful location and are happy to have shared it with you.

This is billed as a retreat and it certainly gives you great peace and quiet. The service by all was fantastic and simon was a very gracious host.

This was hospitality at it's best. Paradisa is located high in the hills near Thekkady and of course it's remote, that's part of the charm - the sheer solitude and beauty of the place was complimented by the wonderful generosity of the owner, Simon, and his staff. For a family of 4 Cardammon Cottage was perfect, the food was as...
