      The SpaceThere was this spectacular place at the very end of our property, which was very special to my father, and he’d always wanted to build the plantation house there. So when I came back from America and set up practice, he told me what he wanted. It took a lot of thinking about, because the place had to be just right, but we finally got started in January, 2001. It took us more than 2 years to build, because we couldn’t do it with drawings and measurements. The entire structure is fitted to the terrain and the topography, and not the other way round. It incorporates and includes all of the natural features of the site, the huge rock, the boulders, the stream, everything. Our villa situated at the edge of the 105-acre Pottamkulam Cardamom Estate, at Kadamakkuzhy thavalam (hamlet). It is a boutique plantation villa nestled among the Cardamom Hills near Kattappana, and close to the Periyar Wild Life Sanctuary. It is an ideal nature hide-out for discerning travellers who look for a serene and nature friendly environment to refresh, rejuvenate and relax with family, loved ones and friends. A stream flows under the bridge that connects the two portions of the house; quite a delightful sight during the rains! There is a huge pond, used as a water-source for irrigating the plantation. Boutique level of personal care and responsible tourism are the two guiding principles of ours. It is the attention and care which is given to ensure these factors that becomes our success . We organise various activity like – treks, plantation walks, spa and rejuvenation facilities, tea-factory visit etc are just some of them. We think that it is necessary to give back to nature; a gesture of gratitude extended towards nature for all that is given to us humans. The initiative which was taken up and executed recently of reforesting 2 acres of land is one such example. The guests also show interest and takes part in such environment and social friendly activities. Activities inside at our planatation villa: - Cardamom processing (curing) centre visit & plantation experience - Soft trekking through the private estate - Guided hiking to the near-by hillock: Chekutthanmala (3 hours) - Ethnic culinary classes with the chef and/or host - Bird watching by yourself on the estate - Morning and evening walks in the plantation tracks - Cardamom plucking along with estate staff - Apiary visit: accompany the estate bee-keeper and collect honey with him.

In addition, the marshy areas along the fringes of the Periyar Lake are tall grasslands. All these provide both excellent cover, and nourishment in the form of succulent shoots and grasses, making the region one of the richest habitats for large mammals. The moderate climatic conditions and favorable habitats in and around Periyar National Park support a unique and diverse wildlife. Over 49 species of mammals, 265 species of birds, 36 species of reptiles, 12 species of amphibians, 35 species of fishes and 160 species of butterflies have been identified in Periyar National Park so far.

Interaction with GuestsMy family is here to help you and we welcome you with kind heart. We will be at home to help you out and to chart the programs for you. The NeighborhoodPeriyar Tiger Reserve:- Sprawling in a good 777 square km area that includes low-rising hills, lakes, rivers this is among the few sanctuaries that are world recognized for their biodiversity. Its tropical rain forests shelter majestic elephants, white-eyed tigers, leopards, barking deer, gaur, many kinds of reptiles and great variety of birds. Although a tiger reserve, spotting tiger here is rare. The most remarkable feature of this park is the manner in which poaching is replaced by protection. The tourism department here has killed two birds with one stone i.e. through a very smart Eco tourism project they have roped in the poachers to become guides in the sanctuary. Without spending anything they have got excellent guides and at the same time curbed the menace of poaching. A comfortable way to view the wildlife is going for a boat safari in the Periyar lake (a manmade lake as the tree stumps jutting out of water suggest) where you can see animals closely but safely as they come to the lake for taking a dip or a sip. The forest department arranges elephant rides and trekking, night trekking and bamboo rafting inside the sanctuary. Tribal Heritage Museum:- To give you an insight into the lives of 5 tribal communities that inhabit the Periyar area, the reserves organizes a 2 hour Tribal Heritage Program. As a part of it the visitors are taken to a tribal hamlet and a heritage museum that showcases traditional fishing gear, hunting equipments, indigenous medicinal plants. Murikkady (1 km from our listing):- What differentiates the Indian food from rest of the world's fare is the use of spices. The main ingredients of a recipe may remain the same, but if the use of spices is altered the whole preparation undergoes a sea change. Murikkady is the place where you can see large-scale plantations of these flavoring agents. Kumily (4 km from our listing):- If the spicy Indian food has tickled your taste buds and you do not wish to long for it back at home, then make sure to visit Kumily. It is a spice-trading centre on the outskirts of Periyar Tiger reserve. Here you can shop for the best quality Indian tastemakers at very reasonable rates.
