Sometimes you just want to escape from it all—the traffic, the noise, the rigmarole of daily life. Almost always, this desire to escape is to some place that helps you reconnect with yourself, let’s you lose that signal that connects you to the online highway, that place nestled somewhere in the lap of Mother Nature.
Just such a place is ensconced in Kumily, Thekkady; a place that shares its borders with the Periyar National Reserve. Located 700 mts above sea level, Hill & Hues is a resort where time seems to have stood still. The country-style cottages beckon with a story to tell; the sounds of Nature seem like something from a fairy tale and the experience, is one you will come back for time and again.
Getting here is a picturesque 190 kms from Cochin International Airport and 145 kms from Madurai Airport.
H&H offers you six pine wood log cabins designed in vintage English style to not only whisk you away to another era but to give you the feeling of being pampered in luxury. Each of these rooms has an endless view of the valley. Each morning and evening, as well as all through the day you will find rolling mist running over the thick green blanket that is a stone’s throw away from you. Each of the rooms is equipped with a mini bar that may be accessed at a reasonable cost, a safe deposit locker, coffee/tea maker, hair dryer, running hot water round the clock, a dental and shaving kit as well as packaged drinking water. All you need at arm’s length.
The specialty restaurant at H&H is mindful of the international palette of its guests and offers an expansive menu that caters to an international clientele. That done, there are a host of traditional Kerala dishes on offer on the menu for those who love a touch of home and those willing to experiment as well.
H&H is an escape that allows you to commune with Nature and rejuvenate yourself. Spend time at the watch tower taking in the mesmerizing landscape. Play a round of indoor games and spend quality time with your family. Immerse yourself in a book from our collection. You could also consider getting cooking lessons from our resident chef. Our expansive spice, fruit and vegetable plantations are just beckoning for those long walks. Take a short trek up a mountain or a boat trip down Lake Periyar. Spend some time at the Periyar Tiger Reserve and come away with
photographs and memories for a lifetime.
If you are looking for a quality getaway that is soothing to the heart and soul, H&H is where you want to be. Your little time in paradise.
