We were only meant to have stayed for two nights at Avanilaya but ended up staying for 5 days and had an amazing time. This is the best kept secret and the staff are unbelievable, so is all the homemade food, the 3 infinity swimming pools. The most relaxed holiday we have had in a long time. Want to recommend,...

We had a family wedding recently at this property. I must say, this was perfect. The property is outstanding. All 3 villas are distinct and are very well designed and planned. However, the management is terrible. The wedding went off well, however the manager decided to play spoilt sport and lie to us that the common area air conditioning is...

It was a treat to have lunch at this beautiful resort. the surroundings are stunning, the food excellent, the service leaves little to be desired. what more could one ask for? time stops when you enter avanilaya. you are surrounded by the beauty of nature. the vibrations are serene and one simply enjoys. A delightful and very special experience.

OMG What a find. It may be called Panchavetti in some guide books because it changed hands a few years ago. Words cannot describe how wonderful this place is. Yes it is expensive by Indian standards our room costing £130 a night, but as we were staying in a palace it was worth every penny. There are in effect three...

My favorite place to sink in and rest, feast and swim. You can eat on the verandah or by the beautiful swimming pool. Charmaine is a gracious host and does her best to accomodate to special requests. The food is very good and varied.

I had a wonderfully tranquil stay in Avanilaya. From the moment I entered the property, greeted with a necklace of fragrant flowers and smiles, I knew this place was special. The building itself is a sumptuous and elegant Portuguese villa set in a lush landscape, where every detail has been thought of. The fresh cut flower arrangements at the table...
