Indhrivanam, located in Kumily Thekkady in the South Indian state of Kerala, is a unique place to stay with only one detached stone cottage available for tourists. The cottage is situated in a private and peaceful 1 acre forest with hundreds of old rosewood, almond, mango, jackfruit and orange trees, creating a setting you are unlikely to find elsewhere in Kerala. Indhrivanam is ideally suited for a couple or small family, Indian or non-Indian, who want to get away from the crowds of India, for people, for instance honeymoon couples, who would like to enjoy their holiday in privacy, and for vegetarians, vegans and anyone else who prefer delicious pain-free food.
* It is difficult to categorise Indhrivanam. We are a retreatin the sense that by staying here you are retreating from the outside world. We are a resort in the sense that the property is large and the quality is high. We are a boutique hotel in the sense that very few people stay here at the same time. And we are a homestay in the sense that we deliver a homely, informal and friendly atmosphere.
