The second point of the visit after Munnar. Beautiful resort, with the butterfly garden. Massage center is the nice place. Received complimentary neck and feet massage. Rooms are neat and clean. Restaurant was good with delicious food. Best option in Thekkady.

Unfortunately our stay here was too short. Set in beautiful trees, with lovely pool and a conservation minded hotel, the Caramon County was lovely. The restaurant was excellent, and the staff always helpful.

Our stay was very pleasant and comfortable. The staff was very cordial, obliging and helpful, especially PRABHU. The breakfast and dinners were great, well prepared and served, and reasonably priced. The Butterfly Garden and Ayurveda Unit are great assets to this resort. We will return to this establishment

“Ask for a room away from the main area. You will probably have to climb several steps to get to those rooms but it is quieter and more private. Room service will carry your bags.”
