This was an amazing place to visit and stay! Upon arrival, we ere greeted by Pirrki, the General Manager who gave us an overview of the hotel, it's services and answered all our questions. She was kind, insightful and calming. (The roads to Thekkady are a bit nerve-wracking -- so calming is a very good thing!) We had an incredible...

The food is of top quality, beautifully presented by a delightful young member of staff. Our room had a private...

Aanavilasam offers spacious and luxurious accommodations, delicious meals, and wonderfully gracious personalized service. You feel as if you are a guest in someone's home. The plantation itself is interesting to walk around - one of the staff gave us a guided tour - and if you like healthy organic foods, you'll find them here. Our stay was too short for...

We stayed here in November. Our rooms were next to the dining room but beautiful rooms and not a problem being next to dining room, as we were the only guests. Staff were all very helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Quiet, relaxing stay.

Stayed two nights here and wish we'd had longer. Wonderfully peaceful, private place, comfortable rooms, delicious food, lovely staff. Stayed in a pool villa with views across treetops. A little too cold to swim in early January but we enjoyed the terrace.

Run by an extremely capable and friendly anglo-finnish manager as well as the remaining staff, the service was outstanding from start to finish. (it is owned by an indian photographer.) Helped by the small size of the estate all of your needs are catered for without any delay. Food was excellent and a lot of it is even home grown....
