If you’re looking for somewhere unique to stay in Kerala, the Cardamom Club in Thekkady has just opened new tree-top cabins set amidst the forest.
Set amidst a cardamom plantation, the 500-square-meter boutique resort includes five independent cabins. There is also an outdoor infinity pool with adjacent stepped decks and a spa block also set on raised stilts. They are designed by Kumar La Noce architecture firm in Thekkady, Kerala. The cabins have floor-to-ceiling openings that both enhance the stunning views and also ensure the privacy of the guests.
Stay Amidst The Tree-Tops
According to Bhavana Kumar, Principal Architect at Kumar La Noce, “The setting is discrete and features spectacular views of the hilly landscape around. The property is close to the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary. It is not uncommon to spot a herd of Asian elephants or bison and various other exotic flora and fauna. The culinary experience at the Cardamom Club is crafted to enhance the discovery of local produce and spices, mostly grown on the property”.
The floating cabins are also designed so that they do not disturb the surrounding environment. Their interiors feature furniture made from teak and rattan. They include en-suite bathrooms which also have spectacular views of the forest. Their simple design highlights the beautiful Kerala landscape and the many plantations around.
A stay at Niraamaya Retreats’ Cardamom Club starts at ₹ 5,440 ($83) per night.
