The statement what the promoters offer is the perfect. Away from the main roads, winding into the main Carmondamon country side. You could miss the board, but you suddenly see a lovely driveway with anthoriums and white snake flower. Drive and see a beautiful and luxurious bungalow with Green as the theme. Now green actually is the parrat green and... More

Stayed in a Non A/C Suite Room after doing the Backwater 3D2N trip. The place was hard to find, it was nestled up in the hills in Thekkady, around 10-15 min from town centre. The room was very spacious, had a balcony that can see the bush, it had a big bathroom with rainshower and another shower cubicle. The bed... More

I was welcomed back to Aanavilasam Luxury Plantation House like an old friend, having first visited 3 years ago. The main change is the addition of two more suites and, as a single female traveller I was purposely booked into the more recently built Executive Suite; a beautiful large room with super king bed, two very comfortable arm chairs, as...

It's a wonderful place to stay..relaxing. The service that provided is superb good. The homemade food is delicious. The bedroom with private villa is great. It's hard to describe in words, you should go and experience it. We simply love it as is was our honeymoon trip and will be back again soon.Thank u to aanavilasam team..

My Wife and I stayed here for 6 nights in Feb/March 2014 and it really was a delightful place... It is situated on a cardamon plantation in the beautiful Indian hillsides near the tea plantations... Very peaceful, clean and spacious rooms. The sounds of birds and others creatures around the plantation were great for anyone who loves nature. Only about... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Aanavilasam, and it was worth every penny spend. The owner Mr Salim, the hostess Mrs Paxton, the manager Mr Shamir , the house keeping and the cook all ensured that our stay was nothing short of perfect. The rooms are emaculately clean, are not air conditioned and have no TV. But this is what... More

really quite wonderful. Great room - we had one with a pool - outstanding staff & service, great breakfast and dinner. A couple of things that come with the territory but you should pay attention to. First, they don't have a license so make sure you bring a bottle or two ... or try their quite excellent cardomum lassi. Secondly,... More
