We spent an incredible time at Pampa Villa, a true paradise escape next to the backwaters that we had all to ourselves! This place is a true villa- a peaceful, private house that is located in a beautiful area, nestled between rice paddy fields and the backwaters. The accommodations were unlike anything I had previously experienced in India: immaculate bedrooms, incredible showers, beautiful decorations and pristine pool. Not to mention, the warm and friendly service provided by the staff. We arrived at Pampa Villa in late morning, and first took a swim and lounged around the pool, a beautiful, well-sized swimming pool surrounded by chairs and grass, with a view of the backwaters. We enjoyed a delicious lunch, and spent a relaxing afternoon around the house and pool; the staff kindly brought our afternoon tea, coffee, and snacks poolside!
In the later afternoon, we used bicycles provided by Pampa Villa to explore the quiet, peaceful surrounding neighborhoods: this was definitely one of the highlights of our time in India, and certainly a memorable experience. We biked through the extensive paddy fields and small dirt roads, reaching places in the area that we couldn’t have gotten to by car. I chatted with a few locals from the area, who were all very nice and more than happy to welcome me to their area, and point me in the right direction when I gotten turned around (lots of winding, small dirt roads can do that)! We eventually settled down alongside a paddy field to watch the sun set, a truly beautiful sight.
Dinner of fresh seafood was served in the evening, and the friendly service provided was much appreciated. We spent a peaceful evening on the porch, occasionally getting up and walking to water’s edge to sit for a few moments and enjoy the night stars. And I enjoyed one of the most restful nights of sleep in India in the incredibly comfortable bed. Breakfast the next morning was also top-notch, as expected. Definitely plan to stay at Pampa Villa again in the future!
