Each en suite cottage can accommodate two or three guests and has a veranda surrounding three-quarters of the building from which to relax and watch the wildlife in our grounds. They have been constructed with locally sourced clay, savanna thatch and wood inspired by traditional Vangujjar tribal style and is of low environmental impact. Refreshingly simple, our dedication to making as small a footprint as possible is such that the cottages are raised off the ground to let reptiles and other wildlife pass unimpeded and are equipped with energy efficient fans instead of air conditioning and RO filtered drinking water instead of bottled. The toiletries provided are chosen specifically to be organic and safely biodegradable.
Our chef is an expert in local wholesome dishes, as well as a range of Indian and local specialties and continental fare. Ingredients are mostly locally sourced. We are happy to accommodated special dietary requests with prior notice.
