Dear Mr Pushpanath, Michael and I had a wonderful time at your beautiful plantation/restored farmhouse! We honestly have never spent time in a more luxurious, elegant, comfortable, lovely space in all our travels. The bed and living room were beautiful, and it was lovely being able to walk out to the beautifully appointed common areas. The food was delicious, and I really appreciated the attention to my (non-spicey) palate! Thank you for arranging the various sight-seeing treks for us, and for the delightful walk into the village. We feel like we now have a "home away from home" in India. Thank you so much! Delightful!

Garcia, Spain Acabamos de llegar de Kerala y creo que tengo que compartir mis sensaciones de este hotel. Está en medio de una plantación de cardamomo, cerca de un pueblecito que se llama Kumily, a un paso de Thekkady. Es un hotel que solo tiene dos suites, la terraza de la habitación da a la plantación. Allí sentados, mi chico y yo, pensabamos que estabamos en Memorias de Africa (salvo por la decoración interior que es muy moderna) Tiene un estupendo cocinero pero lo más especial es que el dueño, Salim, un reputado fotógrafo (podeis ver sus libros en Amazon), y su mujer Anu, tremendamente encantadores y discretos, se ocupan de que estés como en casa. La habitación, es decir, la suite, es espléndida y muy bien decorada, el baño con tres ambientes, en fin, la perfección. Hay posibiidad de dar paseos, trekkings, visitar la plantación, montar en elefante y un montón de excursiones de naturaleza en un radio de 20 km. (el transporte en India no es problema, un coche con conductor o un tuc-tuc es baratísimo). es un sitio tremendamente tranquilo, para descansar, dejar pasar las horas, disfrutar de la comida y la buena compañía. Mirad las fotos en su página de internet, la realidad es aún mejor. Imprescindible hablar inglés, de lo contrario te pierdes un montón de cosas.

Tuanis Pura Vida In the middle of nowhere (and nowhere is hard to find in India) lies Aanavilasam. India is all about contrasts, but the biggest on our one month trip around the crown jewel was between the chaos of Delhi and the peaceful house we stayed at in Thekaddy (Periyar). We stayed there for two nights on the Kerala part of our trip, and it was perfect. A luxury bathroom, a fireplace, comfortable beds, fresh air and not just service, but hospitality - it was all here. If you really want to relax with someone or be alone with your thoughts, this is definitely the place to be. But be sure to visit the chaos first, and you will appreciate it even more.
