Clients are served breakfast only. Home-cooked food is the speciality and Mrs. Saramma John, apart from being a fine hostess, is an exceptional cook. Hailing from Ranni-Kozhencherry in Pathanamthitta district, traditional south Kerala cuisine is her forte, though she is also adept at cooking continental food. The culinary treat she can cook for breakfast includes local food such as puttu and kadala, idiyaappam, appam with chicken stew to name a few. Apart from typical Kerala breakfast, guest can also have the usual Toast with Omelette or cereals too...

Other amenities
