Hotel Overview

“Up high, surrounded by a lush palm plantation looking out to a distant glistening sea by Poovar Golden Beach, sits this architect-owned and designed small hotel. On arrival guests are greeted warmly by polite and accommodating staff. Service is excellent. Some rooms have a sea view and are adjacent to the attractive infinity pool with wooden decking and slatted awning. Others open onto the garden, dotted with eclectic sculptures and alive with birdsong, nimble striped squirrels and inquisitive crows. Guests can expect generous beds on platforms with white muslin drapes and a covered outdoor shower room with partly pebbled floor flanked by shrubbery. Innovative and flavoursome local Keralan food is served in the dining area overlooking the garden and pool. Curries are gently spiced and puddings are sublime. Backwater boat trips can be organised and there's an extensive Ayurvedic programme for guests to choose from.”
