Hibiscus Earth is a boutique holiday villa situated in a small sleepy hamlet in Kerala..Ostensibly far from the madding crowd, Hibiscus is nestled beside the Vembanad Lake, which is a part of Kerala’s fascinating backwaters

The space
Hibiscus Earth is a self catering villa which was the brain child of Thomas and Rosie, who are passionate about ideas of green and healthy living.They envisioned a home where they could live with all the comforts but with ecological considerations.

Respecting natural resources, learning from local traditions, Thomas built Villa Vikasa using recycled building materials.

The design of the villa is a contemporary interpretation of typical Kerala architecture. Harvesting rain water, growing organic fruits and vegetables in the garden and making intelligent lifestyle choices, a holiday here is for everyone.

While lounging by the dazzling pool at the villa, one can see how life thrives around the intertwined waterways where the natives live so comfortably with their natural surroundings. Life here has a pace of its own dictated by nothing else but the rising of the sun and the setting of the same.

The Caretaker at the property helps make sure your stay is very comfortable and the cook is always looking out to satisfy your taste buds.

Thanneermukkom, Kerala, India

Though the villa's appeal is its relative isolation, if you like doing stuff, caretaker Kuruvilla can draw up some activities which includes boat charters to nearby towns for shopping or fine dining.

Mere twenty minutes by road takes you to Alappuzha (Alleppey) also known as the Venice of the East, a small town today but was once upon a time the hub of all spice trading activities

Also within the circuit is the unspoiled Mararikulam beach which is every beach-combers dream come true.

An absolute gem of a place is Fort Kochi, also just a thirty minute drive from Hibiscus; a quaint town with much historical relevance and a rich melting pot of cultural influences left behind by both Dutch and British colonisations.

Another must-do is a journey by houseboat between coconut woods and lotus-filled lagoons on Kerala's peaceful rivers and canals.

A day out for anyone who wants to explore the village can also be arranged.

Biking along the shores of the Vembanadu. Trekking or bird-watching in Pathiramanal are some of the action you can engage in.

The Villa is close to some of the best Ayurvedic treatment centres in Kerala. Be it for a simple massage or a complete fitness consultation, Kuruvilla ( The Caretaker) can arrange appointments to good masseurs and Ayurvedic doctors if it is within the sphere of interest.
