‘Amaranthe Bay’ sits poised at the edge of the slow meandering Pillaikulam Aru, a sentinel of luxury in a stunning landscape of calming sunrises and psychedelic sunsets, caressed by the breezes that waft across the More still waters of the river, serenaded by birdcall and the swishing of oars, bathed in a glow that only paradise can offer you. This is ‘Amaranthe Bay.’ Less
