Our tariff depends on time of year, number and age of the persons staying, and the number of nights the booking is for. For instance, for 2 people the tariff is between INR 4800 and 5800
on European Plan (without food) per night including any/all taxes. The maximum number of people we can accommodate are 3 adults or 2 adults + 2 children. Persons aged 12+ are counted as adults. If you are, for instance, two couples, we can arrange accommodation for the less adventurous couple in a nearby homestay style place. 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 at a lower price, we are willing to price match. Please contact us for the exact tariff or check our detailed tariff table (pdf, 26 kB)
. If you are staying for 3+ nights, please ask for a discount.
Before contacting us, you may want to check our Internet reviews. However, please be aware that Indhrivanam has no chance of obtaining a high ranking on the main tourist accommodation review site, Tripadvisor, as this requires a constant flow of reviews. Tripadvisor's algorithm for calculating accommodation ranking is based on the number and frequency of reviews rather than their quality, and as Indhrivanam is easily the smallest accommodation provider with only one unit, we are always well hidden far down on the ranking lists, usually somewhere between 40th and 60th out of 120 in Thekkady in the B&B and Inns category. However, based on average rating, Indhrivanam is somewhere between the 1st and 5th highest rated accommodation in Thekkady, out of all approximately 250 accommodations, with an average of 4.9 (out of 5).
Of course, Tripadvisor's strange rating system doesn't decrease the value of Indhrivanam's Tripadvisor reviews
. In addition to the Tripadvisor reviews, we have reviews on Airbnb
, Google Maps
, we got a nice mention in an article by Mahananda Bohidar on halabol.com (pdf, 476 kB)
