It’s an Experience!

I love Aanavilasam and I am very happy to recommend it to our customers. We promoted this luxury guesthouse from its inception because we are old friends of Salim Pushpanath and wanted to support his new venture. We knew that it would be good because Salim has photographed some of the best hotels in India – so we felt sure that he would have a good understanding of design and comfort when it came to creating his own place. Our confidence was justified as Aanavilasam is one of our customers’ favourites. The feedback we get is consistently excellent so we will continue to promote this wonderful plantation villa.
