BASIC ROOMS

Private rooms with fan and shared bathrooms outside.

Rooms Description

Our private basic rooms are characterized by their connection with nature. They are mainly made of natural materials (wood and bamboo) and have a traditional coconut roof. They are more suitable for guests on a budget who prefer to have their own space and are up for a rural Indian adventure. Windows and openings have no mesh, thus insects and small animals can sneak inside. All beds are provided with sheets, blankets, pillows and mosquito net. Each room is also equipped with a table, bamboo closet for clothes, ceiling or standing fan, electricity plugs, and power back-up for lights only. Ground floor bungalows also have outside furniture. At the end of this page, you will find details of our basic rooms, but take in consideration that we can only note a specific room preference as we only guarantee the reservation of a room type.
