although a bunch of flowers won't be enough

Amenities are, as a rule, free. In addition to the cottage amenities, there are, in the main building, telephone and computer facilities, laundry service, a very small library of books, playing cards, dominos, backgammon, scrabble, carrom and detailed maps for local walks. For any activity (pdf, 120 kB) that requires planning and/or pre-booking, we always, if required, help with arranging tickets, drivers and guides. It is, however, also possible to relax at Indhrivanam. You may even meet some of the birds, lizards and mammals that live on or pass through the property. For instance, we have a healthy population of slender lorises, a primate that is very rare and usually only found deep in the forests of South India an Sri Lanka.

Indhrivanam is the only purely vegan place to stay in Kerala. We do not have a restaurant, but provide homemade food at a charge. Breakfast is Indian or continental with fruit and fruit juice. Lunch is not available, but as lunch is the most important meal for local people, there are decent Kerala lunches available in local restaurants at very reasonable prices. Dinner is from the North Indian, South Indian, Mediterranean or Middle Eastern cuisines. Coffee/tea, lime juice, and, on good days, cakes are available free throughout the day in the main building. For lunch, or if you prefer to eat breakfast and/or dinner somewhere else, there are around 100 restaurants located within 1 to 10 kilometres from Indhrivanam. The fact that we are vegan doesn't mean we condemn non-vegans. We are happy to accommodate most people, and we will, if you wish, recommend restaurants that suit your requirements.

Please find yourself in the slider below for a quick overview of our tariff. To summarise:

1) The maximum number of people we can accommodate are 3 adults or 2 adults + 2 children. If you are, for instance, two couples, we can arrange accommodation for the less adventurous couple in a nearby homestay style place.

2) The tariff is per night in Indian Rupees on European Plan (without meals) including any/all taxes, valid until 31 March 2018. Breakfast is INR 250 per person. Dinner is INR 425 per person.

3) Persons aged 12+ are counted as adults. Add INR 300 for each child.

4) The mentioned discounts are available from February till November.

Even though we compete on quality not price, our tariff is by far the lowest for any detached cottage accommodation in Thekkady, and should you find comparable accommodation for a lower price, we are willing to price match.
