We spent two nights at Aanavilasam and only because we had an itinerary to follow did we leave. Pirkko, is without a doubt one of the most hospitable hosts there is. We had such a lovely time, her manner is so gentle and there isn't a question of request that goes unanswered.
To use the term oasis, is the best description of this restful plantation house. In between the wonderful chaos of our many citied itinerary, the spice plantation, the wonderful food and the generously comfortable rooms, Aanavilasam provided us with the calm we needed to refresh and renew before continuing on our way.
An added bonus, we met the nicest people there and have kept in touch with them since, everyone full of great stories of our wonderful Indian adventures.
