Privacy is a question mark as it was noticed that, they had provided curtains which were actually translucent. Any person walking outside by the window, can easily see what is happening inside the room.

Had an absolutely wonderful time. Excellent service and hospitability. The rooms are maintained superbly and the food was great. The private pool in the pool villa was the cherry on the pudding. If you are looking to wind down in your own private world with your better half, I would say there's no better place than Anavilasam.

I regret not going to @Aanavilasam earlier. This was long pending, as we have been planning to visit this resort since forever. We were blown off by the ambiance, hospitality, location, cleanliness.. The whole experience was really a memorable one. Will definitely visit again..
