Anantya Resort - Near Kovalam
Anantya is a quiet lush tropical retreat nestled within 1000 acres of working rubber plantations. Surrounded by Chittar Lake and the beautiful mountains of Western Ghats with a rare and pristine beauty and a quietude that is addictive.
Anantya proclaims “infinite experiences” and it does offer travellers a complete immersion in natural surroundings, an insight into the agronomics of rubber in a retreat that is inspired by the lily and lotus ponds that you will discover on your trails as you explore around.
The rubber plantation offers a great experience of learning the interesting facts of growing and tapping the rubber trees. The best source of natural rubber is Heveabrasiliensis, a native of the Amazon basin and was introduced in India in the late nineteenth century. Now India is one of the leading producers of rubber and its cultivation in India has been traditionally confined to the hinterlands of the southwest coast, mainly in Kanyakumari District.
It offers 21 villas in four categories, distinguished largely on space and amenities like a plunge pool, Jacuzzi and private outdoor courtyards.
Across all categories the villas are designed with space and light in mind, views of the lake are sacrosanct and the rooms have a feeling of warmth and space with earthy décor, thoughtfully laid out areas for relaxation.
“SVAAD” This alfresco dining surrounded by Lily ponds is the main dining area.
However one can opt to have private dining by the pool or the lakeside.
