Very simply put- every positive thing that every other reviewer has mentioned is completely justified. Our Native Village is a simple but supremely comfortable place to stay in and the hospitality could put starred hotels to shame.
For those of you curious to know what 100% sustainability looks like, this is the perfect example. Everything is recycled and nothing goes to waste. The food is organic but tasty and the kitchen and service staff go out of their way to make sure you're comfortable.
Another fabulous thing that the owners Ramkumar and Lalitha are doing is to encourage local arts and artists. The evenings (atleast on weekends) are filled with cultural nuggets that you would never expect to experience or enjoy. My favourite was the Yakshagana show that was organized one evening- it was the perfect entertainment for my family.
There are enough and more activities organized to keep you occupied but there's also enough space on the property for you to just do your own thing and take long walks or curl up with a book.
All in all, its a great place to escape from our hectic lives and a great escape for people of all ages.
Thanks Ram, Lalitha and everyone else at Our Native Village.
