Wayanad is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque places we have in India. Located in the North-East side of Kerala, the district has many natural formations that are yet to be unearthed by humans. Apart from its breathtaking spectacle, the district is also known for Edakkal caves which are located over 1200 metres above sea level. As with most caverns, the Edakkal caves also boast of a bygone era and also are believed to be a part of The Indus Valley Civilization.
Naturally, most of us would want to relive this glorious past and therefore it is home to some of the best luxury resorts in Wayanad. However not every resort promises the kind of stay Edakkal hermitage resort does. This blog will certainly convince you to plan your next stay in one of the best resorts in Wayanad-Edakkal Hermitage.
Edakkal hermitage is conceptualized with the idea of providing everyone with a cave-living experience that can be seldom found. It takes you to a faraway place that rejuvenates your mind, body, and soul, Hence, not only does our resort arrange stays at cottages, but it also offers camping facilities near the cave. Since each of the cottages and rooms is built near a rock or boulder, it differs from one another. Moreover, the location is surrounded by thick vegetation including evergreen trees, coffee, and tea plantations.
Unlike the other resorts in Wayanad, Edakkal Hermitage doesn’t limit the experience of your stay. It also hosts a large cave restaurant known for its pre-historical architecture and traditional Kerala Cuisine. To familiarise the guests with the glorious past, we also have a souvenir shop, a book shop, and a theatre where cultural programs are held regularly.
If you want to explore something other than the caves, we got that covered too. Special trips to other sightseeing areas in Wayanad including Muthanga Forest Reserve and Waterfalls can also be availed at our inquiry office.
We are also proudly associated with Contour Dakshin, a design strategy that aims to preserve cultural sites such as the caves while providing a healthy interaction with the world. Working towards this initiative, we engage in sustainable activities which include planting trees, retaining the natural ecosystem, and using naturally sourced items for construction and other refurbishments.
To educate the world about the beauty and rich heritage of the caves, we frequently organize martial and tribal art performances. Ayur Kendra from Kalpetta, a famous Ayurvedic spa has also joined hands with us to provide the guests with the natural medicines and other resources available from the forests of Wayanad. Guests were welcome to avail of these services during their stay at the resort.
Keeping in mind the effects of huge vehicles and heavy modes of transport, we usually encourage our guests to take their trips in fuel-efficient jeeps or cycle rickshaws if available. All our vegetables and fruits are organically grown without the use of pesticides and are sourced from local markets adding to the rural economy,
We hope you enjoy your stay at our hermitage! To know more visit our website now!
