THINGS YU CAN DO

  • Enjoy a sunset cruise every evening on a vallam (country boat) out in the open backwaters. The sights, breeze, sounds and smell of the late evenings are indeed very soothing. If you are lucky you can also catch the moonrise.

  • Take a farm walk with any of us and learn about farming below lake level as well as the different crops cultivated. Do check out toddy tapping.

  • For bird watchers the backwaters and the farm offer ample opportunities for sighting kingfishers, woodpeckers, egrets, cormorants, herons, crows, pheasants, snakebirds, teals, etc.

  • Ask for a cooking class from our Chef and learn the nuances of the local cuisine.

  • Try fishing (rods available), or, if you are lucky, check out if you can spike scampi at night.

  • Take a canal cruise through the narrow and winding canals on a vallam and catch a glimpse of the unique backwater villages.

  • The property also offers an ideal setting and is inspiring for serious writers and artists.But, if you are the kind who wants to just relax and cool off, sit on the verandah or under the trees and dream or observe the passing backwater life or catch up with your reading. You could also star gaze into the clear pollution free night sky.
