Cardamom County Resort, Thekkady

Cardamom Country resort review
During our vacation in Thekkady, we have booked our stay in Cardamom County Resort, one of the star properties in Thekkady located at the heart of nature. It is about three kilometers away from the Thekkady boat-house, the cottages are well placed on the sloping hills facing the Periyar Tiger Reserve. The Cardamom County cottages built amid of a natural retreat surrounded by beautifully landscaped garden in multiple levels and giving an excellent view to the aesthetic swimming pool centrally located. The cottages have large, spacious bedroom and a private sit-out to relax in the cool weather listening to the chirping birds. This property has a long walkway with ups and down for a pleasant morning and evening walks.

We were offered with traditional welcome by the front office upon reaching the resort after long drive. They briefed on various facilities within the resort, in-house activities, garden walk and booking assistance for outdoor activities. We were impressed by the well planned professional approach of the reception staffs on receiving the guest. Every other staffs we interacted within this resort during our stay know how to create positive impact by simple gesture; they all well trained on customer friendliness.

In Cardamom County resort there are three types of cottages namely Periyar cottage, County cottage, and Suites having views to bamboo forest, spice gardens. The cottages has spacious bedroom with A/C, Suits have living and bedrooms with wide range of views. The cottages have all basic amenities such as Wifi connectivity, safety locker, coffee maker, hair dryer, dental and shaving kits. The Cardamom County resort offers various leisure activities like spice garden walk, spa, swimming pool, and indoor games. The restaurant within this resort provides multi-cuisine tasty foods with complimentary breakfast. We enjoyed traditional Kerala food prepared using the vegetables grown in the garden within this resort. It has own wellness centre named “Ayura” introducing ayurvedic way of healthy living. The time spend in this wellness centre rejuvenate the body and soul.

As the Cardamom County resort located very near to Thekkady market centre, we walked to the town in the evening for shopping, it is a good place to buy species and chocolates. The Kerala traditional martial arts program Kalaripayattu and Kathakali Dance shows are within short walk from this resort. The front office in Cardamom County provides booking assistance for these shows. The elephant ride and elephant bathing, the two main attractions in Thekkady are easily accessible from this resort, transportation can be arranged through front office. Though the resort located nearby town, the place is very quiet and peaceful away from noises.

Cardamom County resort is ideal for families, safe place for peaceful vacation. It is a great place to stay for holidays with easy access to key locations nearby Thekkady. There are plenty of options available to book this resort with deep discount.
