Reen Resorts Aanavilasam set on a twelve-acre private estate, surrounded by the picturesque Cardamom Hills and just 8km from Thakkady and the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary. Tea, coffee, cardamom and pepper all grow in the region, filling the air with the aroma of fresh spices. Many rare birds are frequently spotted around the plantation, and the nearby Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary has significant populations of elephant, bison, deer, monkey and tiger, all of which might be glimpsed on a lake cruise or guided walk. Accommodation Reen Resorts Aanavilasam Thekkady offers an intimate atmosphere with just six airy rooms with private verandas with stunning views over the hills. Individually appointed suites come with luxurious fabrics, comfy furniture and a pervasive plantation-style theme. Two pool villas offer the opportunity for a private dip, and the Premium Suite provides extreme luxury for longer stays. September to May is the main tourist season, peaking at Christmas/New Year. As the climate heats up from February to May, elephants, deer, and bison are easily spotted as they make for Periyar lake and waterholes. Dining Dining at Aanavilasam is a memorable experience. The hotel’s chefs are adherents to the ‘slow food’ philosophy, which means they spend time out harvesting seasonal local produce and creating everything from scratch. Cardamom from the hills, pepper, and coffee from the plantations, honey from the beehives, bananas, mangoes, and coconut from the forest – all will be foraged, prepared, and cooked freshly for you. You can also take a cookery class to master typical Keralan dishes. European classics are also on offer – but rarely opted for.

The property promises a premium experience provided by a set of highly qualified staff that will make you feel at home. It is right in the lap of nature surrounded by cardamom plantation and they also have honey bee farming in the property. As a guest you are served pure unadulterated honey every morning for breakfast. But that’s not why you fall in love with the place. It just de -stresses you - so green outside and such a premium feeling in the huge rooms - it just seems you are in a 5 star facility right in the middle of a forest. JIJU - the GM personally checks on the comfort of all the guests and Nasir - head operations will make your stay nothing short of delightful. The chef in the restaurant is highly skilled and will serve up some great local plus continental delicacies. Overall - if you go back to Thekkady - they make sure you go back to Annavilasam.

The experience at Reen was a fantastic one! We stayed in the premium suite which had the all the facilities one would expect and need. The interiors were done with wood and hints of green colour which was really pleasant. One of the major highlights was the food they served. Everything was so tasty and would definitely recommend it to everyone! Another interesting activity was when we were taken to see the bee keeping units and were given honey that was taken right out of the comb. The hospitality of all the staff was outstanding. Highly recommended this place if you are looking to stay in a place surrounded by nature.

We stayed 2 nights in this tranquil resort located in a beautiful plantation. The room was generous in size (with a bedroom and sitting room) and extremely well maintained with lovely decor. The staff were so warm and welcoming and couldn’t do enough for us. The chef and the restaurant staff went to great effort and the meals were amazing. Housekeeping provided a lovely touch to the room with some creative towel art. Overall this was a wonderful 2 night stay.

Rooms with living room, very well maintained, clean linen, sophisticated plantation stay! Food is excellent and presented very well, although price on the higher side. Courteous staff and professional. Special thanks to Shaheer who walked us through the plantation and explained about bee keeping and gave us honey sample for tasting! He also took us to a view point (at extra price) Cozy place to spend good time with family. Overall a great experience ! PS: Was expecting an upgrade to pool villla (at least one out of the two rooms booked) considering the fact that rooms were unoccupied during the weekday! One star less for not considering the request.

Greetings From Reen Resorts!!! Dear Mr. Nagesh, It is with great pleasure we hear you had a fabulous stay and a plantation experience at the Reen Resort. We give utmost attention to the food that we serve to our guests. The concept of farm-to-plate is adopted here. In order to maintain biodiversity the entire plantation is protected without using pesticides. Hence our plantation is free from pesticides or chemicals. Any produce from our farm, be it spices, fruits or vegetables that come to the guest's plate is organic. These products are labour intensive and expensive. The Viewpoint which you have traveled is away .only an all-wheel jeep can ride the guests up the hill. This service would incur a cost, The private pool villas are the premium rooms of the resort, and were booked by OTA. Hence we weren't able to accept your request. However, we value your suggestions. Thanking you for sparing your valuable time in writing about us. We look forward to seeing you again at the Reen Resort. Warm Regards Jiju James

Trip to Reen Resort in Anavilasam thekkady was an awesome experience. We stayed for two nights at the pool villa. It's quiet property with cardamom, pepper some vegetables along with natural vegetation including trees. They have lot of honey boxes and produce honey as well. They have few cottages and so the place remains quiet despite being fully occupied. They have view point just 1 min walking distance as well as 10 min drive. The best feature of the place is their hospitality. The manager Jiju and his team took care of us. From food to cleanliness and everything they were professional and prompt. I definitely recommend this place for anyone willing to go on a quiet stay with loads of adventures to get into all around the property Thank you Reen Resort Thank you Jiju and team Hope to visit the place again..
