Come to a heritage homestay, encounter cultural interaction, relish exquisite cuisine and enjoy exclusive experiences. ‘Nazarani Tharavad’ is a 250-year-old property built in Kerala, Dutch and Spanish architectural styles in the heart of the millennium old Town of Pala, a seat of early and present day Christianity. Two acres of lush green plantations and lawns makes the property a veritable bird sanctuary. Commitment to social and environmental values is the forte of the Nazarani Tharavad. The House also has an extensive library with books as old as 200 years.
Culture and Cuisine is the specialty at Nazarani Tharavad. Centuries old tradition of elegant living is brought to life. Experience the two millennia old culture of the Syrian Christians (Nazaranis) of Kerala and enjoy the traditional Nazarani Sadhya (lunch) on banana leaf. Be taken back to the British era relishing a 7-course sit-down dinner of continental dishes at the beautifully set table. You have to eat it to believe it.
There are four well-appointed air-conditioned suites with period and antique furniture and attached baths.
Visit Rubber Plantation and Factory, Tea Factory, Vanilla and other Plantations, Local Artisans (Weaver, Brass-smith, Potter), Ancient Churches, and Centres of Social Work. Go trekking.
