The Nature castle is originally built 110 years ago at Bharanganam, the holy city of Saint Sr.Alphonsa. This house was dismantled carefully and re-assembled at the present location in Munnar. It is typical model of houses constructed by rich Christian families in and around Kottayam district of Kerala. It shows how carefully measured wooden logs are joined/stitched together in ancient times with greater mathematical accuracy of modelling of building structures. It is amazed to see that, these structures can withstand high magnitude earthquakes. Except few outer walls, the entire structure including the roof top is carved in wood. The stay in this facility is an eye opener for the ancient architecture. This architecture, built in the middle of beautiful hill station Munnar, will take you to the peace and calm of nature. It will blend you to the nature – a real heritage stay!
Nature Friendly Occupancy
Munnar is a hill station on the Western Ghats in the Idukki district of the Indian state of Kerala. It was the summer resort of the erstwhile British rulers in the colonial days. It has unending expanse of tea plantations, valleys and mountains, exotic species of flora and fauna, wild sanctuaries and forests and aroma of spice scented cool air. We have chosen this lovely place to build Nature Castle. An experience you will never and take it with you forever – in the midst of wonders of the nature. It is far away from the industry pollution and noises. You relax in the aroma of scented cool air of Munnar. The house is made wood with abundant handcraft and modern luxury. So, you are with nature inside and outside of Nature Castle!
The ancient houses are not equipped with modern luxuries and facilities that we see now days in modern hotels. Therefore, the Nature Castle has decided to re-model the ancient house with modern facilities matching with international standards. Hence you can enjoy the high end fully equipped modular kitchen, TV, modern toilets and shower rooms. In short what you see here is a set of facilities matching with international standards without de-grading the traditional structure and heritage.
