Hi Marianne and Tom, Thank you taking the time to review Indhrivanam. Every little bit helps! In case you are wondering: the plant I had never heard of, the frangipani, which we happened to have growing (it turns out it is also called plumeria), is...More

Indhrivanam was one of the best places we stayed at while in India. The hosts Mort and Sarah made us feel amazingly welcome. The accommodation was beautiful and so cosy at night. There was everything we needed to recover from the stress of the city....More

The stay at Indhrivanam was my wife's birthday gift, and I can't recollect a better gift. The location of the homestay, the ambience, the design of the cottage, the facilities provided, the hosts' hospitality, the sumptuous, flavourful food - all at a very reasonable price...More

Indhrivanam is, probably, India's a smallest special place to stay with only one stone cottage suitable for a couple or small family. We are located 10km (6 miles) from Thekkady on 1.5 Acres on the mountain More ridge between Kerala and Tamil Nadu; it is a quiet and peaceful location, but ideal for local walks and the traditional tourist activities in the Thekkady/Kumily area.
