The village resort !!!!!!!!!!


The Village Resort is envisioned and designed to serve a special purpose; to provide guests with an opportunity to experience the heavenly beauty of village life in all its exemplary tranquility. The glory of a fast diminishing lifestyle and ambience recreated and preserved to awaken sensibility.

In Kerala, the imagery and experiences traditionally associated with its villages have been slowly but steadily changing for the past two or three decades. Most villages have graduated to the position of larger towns. From the perspective of growth, urbanization of villages has been positive for the most part. But it has also adversely affected the traditional sight, sound, air and a unique lifestyle that could never be reversed. For example, in traditional villages people had more time for each other and they interacted frequently with ardent warmth and conviction. Those villages also had a simple and spontaneous picturesque quality that portrayed profound innocence. Now transformations have also taken place to the village landscape, infrastructure and architecture of the houses and buildings. The old bull carts that chugged along on unpaved roads making the mellow rhythmic clanging sound no longer exist, water drawn wells are becoming scarce, thatched houses are gone, golden hay stacked around trees to feed cattle once used to be landmarks of villages, the sight of the mother-hen and her chicks being watched over by the majestic rooster are getting rare, the kerosene lantern that used to light-up village homes have now been replaced by LED lamps; and the list goes on. for more details click here
