Rooms and facilities
Our guest accommodation is in a separate cottage of 4 basic, mosquito free rooms adjacent to the house where we live. So our guests will get their own privacy and freedom there. All rooms have attached bathrooms with western toilets and a shower with hot and cold water. Each room has its own entrance with veranda equipped with deckchairs, teapoy and table fans, and natural garden in front with hammocks and swings.
Home made vegetarian, vegan and non vegetarian food, as per your requirements, is served in the main hall of our house. All the food is freshly made using organic and local produce whenever possible.
From the main house you can access free Internet, wifi , phone, cable TV etc.
Our home is conveniently located for backwater cruises in and around Kumarakom and Alappuzha (Alleppey) by house boat, country boat, motor boat or even by very cheap Government ferry. You also have the opportunity to see snake boats (racing boats) and ancient churches and temples. Activities such as canoeing, fishing, bird watching, village tour, farm visits, riding, sight seeing and houseboat stays can easily be arranged. Our location is ideal for bird watching as it is surrounded by the backwaters and natural forest.
We offer ayurvedic treatment, body massages and can arrange yoga classes, dental care and various treatments for a third of the western rate. We can also help you to buy spectacles, clothes etc. at a very cheap rate.
