Fodor's Expert Review Cardamom Club

256 V & V Estate, Spring Valley, 66th mile, Kumily, Kerala, 685509, India

A fork in the road branches off to a 2-km-long (1-mile-long), bumpy ghost of a road (almost a track) that heads to the V & V Estate, a spice plantation that holds this small resort, which emerges like a little paradise from the undergrowth. Six enchanting whitewashed cottages with thatched roofs lie perched on a hillside, with each of them with well-lit, attractive rooms with colorful highlights. The hotel’s glass-and-bamboo-fronted reception building also houses a spa, a bar, and a restaurant. A variety of wildlife lives in the forest surrounding the property.
