Editor's Review

The Pamba Heritage Villa offers scenic views of the river and paddy fields. The property features traditional and modern rooms but it may be a little dark in the traditional rooms. The host's mother is a fantastic cook and you can be sure you will have plenty of delicious food to eat. The outdoor showers are a major highlight and so are the hammocks in the property.


  • Beautiful location and lively atmosphere.
  • Both traditional and modern rooms available.
  • Warm hospitality and good homely food.

Detailed Info

The Pamba River is the third longest river in South India and is considered holy by many people. The Pamba Heritage Villa is set on the eastern bank of this beautiful river. It is a 110-year old wooden mansion owned by the Kanjooparambil family. It has been their ancestral home for several generations. The guest rooms in the villa had been used as paddy storehouses in the bygone era. Today, they are alluring spacious rooms with all the modern facilities and good ventilation.

The villa has a common living room where guests can watch TV, chat up with other guests or play indoor games. The windows and doors of the guest rooms open to the paddy fields, the garden and the tranquil river. They are netted so that guests don't have to worry about the mosquitoes. The rooms have terra cotta tiled roofs and the floors have mud tiles. The rooms also have a small common veranda. The attached bathrooms are elegantly designed with an open air shower. This is the only place where you feel that the property is not just traditional but also quite modern.
