At the very heart of the sanctuary is the serene Periyar Lake nurturing the encircling jungles and providing an enchanting setting for its rich birdlife.

But the spell really begins long before the destination. The journey to Thekkady takes you though quaint little hill-towns and softly contoured hill slopes surrounded by plantations of tea, coffee and spices likje cardamom and pepper. The very air, fresh and rejuvenating, is fragrant with the delicate aromas of this spice district.

The deep tranquility of the scenic vistas blends with the exhilaration of adventure activities to make for a unique holiday experience.

The resort's dream location, unhurried style, and the attentive concern to hospitality never fail to leave lasting memories. Set in beautifully landscaped gardens against green-clad mountains, each of the simple yet stylish cottages present the finest in modern living.
