Simplicity rules the day at this coconut plantation hideaway near the starting point of the Nehru Cup Snake Boat Race. It consists of just four cottages with red-tiled floors and wooden interiors, and two suites. Furnishings are basic but comfortable; mosaic-tiled bathrooms are attached to the room but have a partially open roof. The charm here is in the hammocks, the home-cooked food, the friendly staff, and the idyllic setting.
