Even as Tharavad retains its heritage charm, it also houses the comforts of modern living such as a conference space, wi–fi connectivity, satellite television, media player, library, DVDs, a refrigerator, washing machine and a fully equipped kitchen.
There are three natural spring pools on the property — a small one attached to the house, a main pool with a pool house located at a minute’s distance and a larger pool that was once used to bathe elephants!
The pool house by the main pool has an exercise area, recreational area, a bathing area, a changing room and is open to guests till late. However, we encourage those who don’t have good swimming skills to exercise caution while in the water. Stick to the shallow ends and not venture into the pools after dark!
The Conference room can accommodate 35 people. It is wifi enabled and is equipped with a flat-screen TV, sound system, LCD projectors, flip chart stands and a white board.
If you want to move your discussions elsewhere, you can also use the alternate meeting space adjacent to the inner courtyard. The open courtyard is available for those who think nature helps ideas evolve best.
The space at Tharavad offers ample scope for many outbound activities. We also organise half-day or day-long getaways for large groups. This could be a half-day trip to a beach or on a houseboat ride which includes lunch (seating upto 35 people). One day trips to Silent Valley, Nelliyampathy or to Malampuzha Dam could also be arranged.
There are several species of organic fruit trees and flowering plants, scattered across the property. We encourage you to walk through these orchards and experience nature.
The well stocked kitchen could be used to cook and heat food. For larger groups, we can arrange catering externally.
You can also cook or heat your food.
Hire cars or bikes on prior intimation. The car at the house can also be hired at nominal rates for short trips.
A washing machine and dryer are available for use at nominal rates. In an effort to conserve the environment, we request you to use the machine only when you have an optimal load.
An Iron is also available in the laundry area for your convenience. This can be used free of cost.
