We drove to Annavilasam from Kovalam and it was one of the most beautiful drives ever. The roads were empty as there was a state wide "bandh" and hence an otherwise long journey was made in good time. We had booked the pool villa since it was highly recommended on trip advisor and were not disappointed! So beautiful and charming! The experience of staying in a room with a private pool overlooking acres of plantations and hills was amazing though it was chilly so we couldn't actually get in the pool! Pirrko and the rest of the staff were extremely hospitable and helpful! Had a great stay!!
