Resort of the Week: Thapovan Heritage Home

Thapovan is nestled within verdant surroundings… just away from the din and bustle of city life. Perched exquisitely on top of a hillock and cliff, the heritage home is bordered by the virgin Nellikunnu beach. It also lies in proximity to other tourist attractions like Kovalam, Thiruvallam and Vellayani.

The cosy shade of swaying coconut palms. The caressing roar of the majestic sea. The divine fragrance of Thulasi. The stimulating rhythms of Kathakali. The secure confines of Nalukettu… The enchanting notes of Kerala come alive in the idyllic surroundings of Thapovan. The heritage home where the Gods would love to come to rest.

Architectural marvels in wood. Carved religiously on the principles of Thachushastra- the mystical science of engineering. Gabled roof, imposing wood columns at the entrance, panelled walls…Step in and transport yourself into a pristine world that had challenged technology with aesthetic ingenuity.

Golden flames flickering in exquisite Thookkuvilakku (hanging lamps) was its answer to electricity. Water in charmingly designed basins for air conditioning. And the architectural genius of yore that allowed unhindered flow of cool air through all rooms.

In the courtyard, a few paces in front of the entrance door, is the Thulasithara. A three feet high structure holding the hallowed Thulasi plant. It symbolises the presence of the divine.

Relax peacefully in this serene ambience. You will be caressed by the soft roar of the waves. The virgin Nellikunnu beach is just a two minutes walk from the homes.
