live life, naturally!

Vanakkam! This is how we welcome guests when they visit our home. The kurumba village resort is your home and our team would like to greet you in the traditional manner!

Step into our world… off-trail, unspoilt, luxurious, and in sync with nature…. where days slip away like birds in flight…

A lush space, a refuge for the senses where the land is nurtured and life-affirming moments happen all the time…

Named after the Kurumbas, a forgotten tribe, the resort is a tribute to the ancient clan that co-existed happily with nature in this hot spot of great bio-diversity.

When you arrive at the thatched open-sided reception, warm hues, genuine smiles greet you … The resort, wrapped in a haze of green, sprawls earthy and natural… meandering pathways lead you to our tribal-style cottages and suites… all crafted with natural materials, with creature comforts in place.

Inhale the heady aroma of nutmeg, pepper and cloves… the resort has been built artfully in a 10-acre former spice plantation, sculpted into a hill… without felling a single tree! Jacaranda, rosewood, jackwood trees rise tall and sinewy like Kurumba warriors… pepper vines wrap themselves around the thick trunks…

Our guests too will live like the Kurumbas, feel the pulse of the earth, live in harmony with its cyclical rhythms; wake up to the call of the whistling thrush; the gurgle of streams, the splash of waterfalls, the rustling of the wind in the trees, tall as totem poles…

Vanakkam, once again!
