Poor excuse for an Hotel

Posted Jan 4, 2017 on Hotels
This is an old run down hotel with a serious need to upgrade or reinvent itself and to become more modern in its styling.

Great Location

Camelia Haven Resort is set in the most wonderful and enchanting location - among the tea plantation and forests in Kerala. It has its own spice gardens and the Reception staff are pleased to give a free tour with authoritative commentary. We stayed there two nights and had the place to ourselves- including the swimming pool area. We highly recommend Carmelia Haven Resort for a short break or as a stop over on the way to the main destination as was the case with us. Very helpful and courteous staff.

Horrible. Stay away from this dump. Bedbugs are not fun, and you don't want to bring them home.

Excellent outdoors and food make it worthwhile!

Pros: Food, Outdoors, and Service.
Cons: manage hot water situation more effectively.
Excellent curb appeal and outdoors -- pleasure driving into. Pleasant staff interactions. Spacious and reasonably well kept rooms and bathrooms. The lunch ordered from the menu was worth the wait! I was informed many days ahead that there is a compulsory payment for "Gala dinner" on Christmas eve; I was a bit upset since I don't like anything imposed on it. It turned out to be really great: all four in my family, including two teenagers agreed that the food, arrangements, decor, entertainment, and the service at the Gala dinner was fantastic!

Good hotel to experience

Posted Oct 31, 2011
If you like nature, you would love to go to Carmelia. Situated within a 55 acre spice state, property offers excellent opportunity to get-away from urban life without much compromising on comfort. We (me, wife and daughter aged 7) stayed in a tree house built on a alive tree aged 125+ years. Tree house little small and not very clean but it was functional. Given some efforts to keep it clean, it can map to any good hotel room stay. Surprisingly, we found no insects even though it rained during mornings and evenings. We saw many birds on the adjacent trees. Service to tree house was little slow, which can be improved. Staff is friendly and polite. Food quality was not good though. We have been there only for a night, so, maybe, got a wrong menu. Property overall is excellent and spending 2-3 days there can be very refreshing and knowledgeable for. Excellent place for picture enthusiasts. :)
