Detailed Info

Aanavilasam Luxury plantation house is 7 acres in area located 8 kilometres from the Periyar Wildlife sanctuary in Thekkady. The house is completely surrounded with cardamom and pepper plantation. It is quite grand and luxurious and yet, welcoming and casual. Without any sign of irritating traffic around the place, the house makes you completely forget the bustling city life. Hence, it becomes an exotic and refreshing accommodation suitable for singles, couples and small families who are in search of a personally customised country atmosphere.

Aanavilasam is an ideal plantation stay destination. It also gives you the opportunity to see how spices are grown, harvested and processed. There is a tiny, friendly village a little distance away. You can walk to that place from your hotel to see and visit homes built in typical Kerala-style.
