What a privilege to have been a guest in this magical place and to have had a taste of paradise earlier this year. Simons knowledge enriched the experience and Roy made use of the local organic ingredients to produce the most delicious meals. We were also honoured by a pre-dinner traditional dance performance. Traditional antique Kerala architecture set in a...

Paradisa Resort is high up in the hills so very peaceful and quiet. Spectacular views, beautiful rooms, excellent food and very professional staff. Simon, the owner, was a charming host who took us out to visit a tea factory and Ayurvedic medicine factory on our first day. We were invited to watch our food being cooked and learn about Keralan...

We stayed here for three nights in March, we were the only guests and were treated like royalty! The Paradisa Plantation is off the beaten track high up in The Nilgiri Hills, the views are to die for. It is surrounded by forested mountains and jungle where a thousand elephants and thirty six tigers are reputed to live. The exotic...

Wow, what a stunning place. Towards the end of our drive there I was wondering where on earth we were going as we drove higher and higher off the beaten track and then, wow, we arrived and saw the place with its stunning views, peace and tranquility. We had the pleasure of staying in Cardamom Cottage which is just gorgeous....

A rare case of a wonderful setting being matched by unique food,great service and the warm welcome of Simon,the owner..If you wish to get away from the coast and crowds,this is the place for you. The individual chalets are spacious and beautifully decorated,and the pool,while not large,is pleasantly designed with great views.

Quite simply Paradisa Plantation Retreat has the best home cooking you will find in India. The retreat has beautiful views over the cardamon hills and we also enjoyed the rooms set in traditional Keralan houses. It lacks some of the polish of more expensive hotels but makes up for this in character and the fabulous food. Dinners during my stay...

Hold onto your stomachs as you approach this hillside retreat, as the roads get twisty and narrow as you ascend. But the views! You can see across rolling hills and valleys as you climb, and at the end you're rewarded with a steep turn-off down a driveway that culminates in a gate where a Hindu statue welcomes you. We traveled...
