Indhrivanam consists of two buildings made of handchipped stone: a house (for us) and a cottage/cabin (for you). The property relies on rainwater harvesting, and we have the world's most beautiful dry toilets! The size of our property is 1.6 acres. It is unique in the sense that is has almost continuous tree cover of a few hundred old rosewood, almond, mango, jackfruit and orange trees. Under the canopy we grow coffee (Arabica, Robusta and Liberica), but our priority is to create a space where fauna and flora will prosper. On the property, we have identified around 40 different bird species, and mammals like slender loris, wild boar, porcupine and mouse deer. Our guest cottage is in its own private and quiet part of the property (1 acre) where no one else has access. The main building, where we stay, is located 50 metres from the cottage. Meals and laundry facilities are available in the main building.
We are Sarah (British), Morten (Danish) and our Indian dog, Ashna. There is 1 permanent employee at Indhrivanam. We only have guests when we are also on the property, and as we spend 11 months of the year here, Indhrivanam is almost always open. Our approach to running our micro B&B is that we spend the time required to make our guests feel comfortable, i.e. we are happy to give you a guided local walk or take you to one of the special restaurants, where we sometimes eat, but where tourists never go. But we are also happy to just advise, and let you get on with the various activities that are on offer in the area.
Indrivanam is located in the Thekkady area, which is a main tourist destination in Kerala, mainly due to Periyar Tiger Reserve. Thekkady is actually a forest to which Kumily Town is attached. We are on the outskirts of a village 8 kilometres from Kumily. For us, this location is ideal because it is far enough away to be able to avoid the busy town and the consequences of tourism, but close enough for us and our guests to easily get to places of interest. There are a number of recommended activities in the Thekkady area. For instance the Nature Walk and Border Hiking in Periyar Tiger Reserve, local walking with or without a guide (we have created maps), cooking class with a local cook/artist (vegetarian South Indian cuisine) or a local family (vegetarian or non-vegetarian Kerala cuisine), a half-day trip to Tamil Nadu which combines walking, temple visit, farmland tour and Tamil food, and, maybe, a spice garden visit, an ayurvedic massage or a martial art performance.
