Fodor's Review

This rustic retreat, inside a cardamom, allspice, and cloves plantation, lies 15 bone-jarring minutes and 6 km off the main road to Kumily, but once you're there, the emphasis is on serenity and relaxation; most guests come for ayurvedic treatment and yoga. A wooden bridge over a duck pond leads to the main building—a whitewashed, thatch-roof affair that houses a restaurant specializing in authentic Italian and Kerala food. The spotless white cottages are largely minimalist—perfectly

executed—with only a colorful bedspread, a stained-glass window, or an ancient, dark-wood oar adding splashes of contrast to each room.
