Adobe Huts

Two artistically designed Adobe Huts have replaced the tents and are located near the Plantation Cottage overlooking a cardamom valley. These natural and truly sustainable earthen rooms have a special feel to them. The spacious Butterfly room can accommodate 2 -3 persons while the smaller Mandala room is suitable for a single or couple. Each hut has its own separate toilet and wash room a few metres away.

The Drongo Cottage and Adobe Art Huts are located inside the plantation about 250 metres away from the central dining area. Access is via a natural unpaved path and requires climbing some stone steps; so it may not be suitable for seniors or small children. Please bring good walking shoes and flashlights.

Community Dining

Please note that meals are served buffet style in the common dining area.

Guests in the Drongo cottage have to walk 300m to the common dining area for all meals.

Our open dining area is set amongst dense greenery at the edge of a lovely stream near the deluxe cottages.

All our delicious and wholesome meals are prepared with mostly organic ingredients and moderately spiced, so the delicate flavors are enhanced. (we have a deadly habanera chilie sauce for those who like it hot!).

Some of the spices (cardamom, pepper, chilies, allspice, tumeric, ginger, and cinnamon), fruits and vegetables used in the cuisine are grown here and others sourced from local farms.

We prepare our own whole delicious wheat breads, cakes, condiments such as jam and pickles and cheeses.

Please let us know if you have a preference for vegetarian or non-veg foods. Beer, soda and juice are available for an extra charge.
