The Space

We have two traditional Kerala house (Tharavadu) offering four bed rooms and all amenities.

Cottages mostly brick and wooden built with antique doors and furniture. Each cottage has two air-conditioned rooms with a verandah.

The Bathrooms are open-roofed similar to those in the homes of old Kerala with ultra modern plumbing of course, and hot-and-cold running water too. You can shower under the sheltering sky, yet in complete privacy.
Kuttanad, a stretch of 75 km stands sandwiched between the vast serene sea & the magnificent hills. The bewildering labyrinth of shimmering waterways composed of lakes, canals, rivers & rivulets, is lined with dense tropical greenery and preserves rural Kerala life styles that are completely removed from the buzz of city life . The views change from narrow canals and dense vegetation to open vistas and dazzling green paddy fields.

The sweeping Network of canals honey-combing the town of Alappuzha has earned the sobriquet, "THE VENICE OF THE EAST". Do not miss out on a ride into Kuttanad through shimmering, green paddy fields and tail-waging, head-bobbing groups of ducks. The Coir workers too present an interesting sight. Alleppey becomes the cynosure of all eyes in August-September, every year when the water regatta unfolds itself.

Kuttanad, called the 'rice bowl of Kerala' because of her wealth of paddy crops, is at the very heart of the backwaters. The scenic countryside also has a rich crop of banana, cassava and yam. Inland waterways, which flow above land level, are an amazing feature of Kuttanad. This is perhaps the only region in the world where farming is done 1.5 to 2 m below sea level. Alappuzha Beach is one of the most popular picnic spots in the district. The pier, which extends into the sea here, is over 137 years old. The old lighthouse on the beach is a fascination for visitors.
