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, quiet 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, and for people, for instance honeymoon couples, who would like to enjoy their holiday in privacy.
* 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.
