This place is amazing. It's serenity and beauty matches to the simplicity and sweetness of the staff. It's situated right next to the hot spots and still got the calmness that you look for in Kerala vacations. I would LOVE to go back to this place anytime I get a chance.

Very good experience. Good hospitality at the reception and at the restaurant. Staff is well mannered and polite. Surely will stay again. Evening programme of Kathakali dance was excellent. Stayed one night only, Wish we had more time to enjoy the scenic beauty.

We enjoyed the too short stay at this hotel. The staff are very polite and helpful. The room is above expectations. The rooms are built on the mountain giving a lot of charm to the hotel. Nice swim pool but too cool to enjoy. Highly recommended.

What a lovely place to stay, close to the Periyar Tiger Reserve. No, we didn't see tigers but there were monkeys and birds aplenty in the lush gardens. There is also a pretty butterfly garden & small farm. The food in the restaurant and the waiting staff were both top notch! A word of advice, some of the rooms are...

"Hi Richard! Cardamom County is indeed a lovely retreat for those who love exploring and dwelling in the goodness of nature. Tigers are one of those magnificent creatures that attract travelers to Thekkady, but the chances of spotting one are very rare since they prefer to stay away from human settlements. The friendlier beings like the monkeys and birds are...

We spent two nights at this hotel and wish we could have spent longer. The hotel is well located a short walk from the shops and restaurants, but once you walk through the gates you enter another world. The rooms were a good size with large bathroom and powerful big shower. We had a balcony overlooking the hotel and loved...
