Outstanding hospitality
15 recent guests complimented Anilal for outstanding hospitality.

This Enclave is close on this Vembanad lake. Cozy cottages are built amidst the majestic trees like nutmeg, cloves, coconut trees, jack trees, bread fruit trees, Arecanut, Cocoa etc.

The Cottages are thatched with braided coconut palm leaves to obtain a natural cooling effect. The interior is uniquely fashioned. As the walls of the cottages are built with palm tree planks the rooms are never hot. The Cottage is suitable for a family having attached bathroom with all essential interiors.


Free parking on premises
Unavailable: Smoke alarm
The host hasn't reported a smoke detector on the property.
