Elephant Grass Thatch
Our cottages are inspired by the indigenous dwellings of the local Mannan Tribe. Elephant grass, unique to this region, is used to thatch the roofs and we depend upon the traditional skills of these local people to implement it. The Elephant Grass itself is a raw material that is otherwise burnt by the forest officials to prevent forest fire.
Did you know that the simple and light pinewood furniture you see in the rooms have been made by recycling old wooden crates bought from the nearest seaport. Our small efforts to tread lightly for 25 years!
Handmade at Spice Village
Our little Handmade paper making unit where we, along with our guests, make handmade paper from the kitchen waste, old fabrics and waste paper, produce the note pads you find in the rooms and the garlands you are greeted with on arrival.
