A poignant silence, punctuated by a symphony of bird calls, trumpeting elephants, the rustle of leaves, a gentle breeze prompts green gold yellow paddy stalks to dance in unison. Clouds laden with promise of rain, of a bounteous harvest, float down into the valley.
A village road turns off from the highway past a town named Sulthan’s Battery, winds languidly through large stretches of green gold paddy on either end, passing hamlets fringed by areca nut and coconut trees and a line of hills to the west. Entering a valley surrounded by a dense forest, guests arrive at Vayal Veedu.
Vayal Veedu is designed in the fashion of a plantation bungalow, with numerous acknowledgments to contemporary design and decor. Veedu in the local vernacular translates to a home. In more ways than one, this is truly a home as once most of humanity knew it enveloped in a poignant silence, punctuated by a symphony of bird calls, trumpeting elephants, the rustle of leaves awaits guests. The bungalow is set at the foot of a hillock and contains a complement of four exquisitely furnished suites, each with its exclusive private verandah looking out at the paddy fields and the forest beyond. An intimate dining area with a sloping tiled roof is situated beside the bungalow, furnished in bamboo with a splendid view of the surroundings.
Set beside a ten acre paddy plantation and bordered on three sides by hillocks draped with a tropical forest, allow a gentle breeze to accompany your thoughts, prompt golden yellow paddy stalks to dance in unison. Watch clouds laden with promise of rain, of a bounteous harvest, float down into the valley. And there is the warm, attentive service extended by the staff and the friendly nature of the people that tend to the paddy fields.
Accommodations at Vayal Veedu consist of a complement of four exquisitely furnished suites with the state of the art in amenities. Every bungalow contains its exclusive private verandah in front, with deck chairs and panoramic views of the paddy fields and the forest beyond. Guests enter a suite passing the verandah and inside, it is furnished with a plush double bed draped in natural fabrics, cushioned chairs made of bamboo, a work table, a refrigerator, a pantry and toilet.
