A good lonely place to spend time with your friends away from the crowded environment. Have your own kitchen with all basic utensils to make a perfect dinning
A perfect getaway destination if you are looking for a break in tranquility. The two bedroom cottage located amidst a small coffee estate is well equipped with a functional kitchen, two bedrooms which can comfortably accommodate 4-5 but you can squeeze in a 6th. clean washroom, hall with a couch and a TV. There is also free WIFI with a decent bandwidth to stream movies.
The location is perfect.You can drive right into the cottage and there is space to park 2-3 cars.
Coming to the best part of the property. Its greenery all around. No sound of traffic. Complete peace of mind and a small trek downhill through the coffee plants leads to a small stream. The walk is refreshing.
The caretaker is courteous. Helped in setting up the campfire on a couple of days.
Would recommend this if you are looking for an actual break and not for one of those sight seeing trips.
I visited Thushaaram with my colleagues on December 9th and 10th, 2017. I am a frequent visitor to Kuttikkanam and near by areas, so I know the quality of accomodations there. Considering all the aspects, I would suggest this place to anyone who would like to spend a weekend at a serene place.
Let me list the things I liked most about Thushaaram:
1. Though the place is located 3.5Kms away from Kuttikkanam town, you would not find it hard to locate the place. Its marked correctly on the map and there are directions on the way.
2. The owner Shyam called and explained everything about the house and items available and certain tips to have a nice stay.
3. Clean rooms and toilet with heater, first aid box, TV, mini fridge, gas stove, kitchen utensils, vessels, plates and glasses, water purifier and a grill frame are available. Soaps, towels and tooth paste were kept in place.
4. 10Mbps wifi, magazines, chess board.
5. You would not need to go to the town to buy things, because everything you need for a one night's stay is provided. Even there are menu cards of 2 different hotels which have home delivery.
6. There is a small river few steps from the house.
All this in a 3500/- price range.
I understand that this is more than a business for the owner, its about passion and its about professionalism. It surely has been setup by someone who has travelled a lot, and in a way he wanted every stays to be.
Really appreciate the efforts of the owner and the caretaker to keep the place as it is.
Got a wonderful opportunity to spend time in THUSHARAM with my friends on last vacation . This place is so relaxing and puts in our budget. we enjoyed our stay in this home very much.
The Title "Thushaaram - Your Personal Holiday Home.." is perfect.
We really felt like staying at our own holiday home.
We have absolute privacy and freedom. They are very much flexible in check in and check out times, which we cannot expect from any other hotel or resort people.
They are also ready to allow relaxations in the number of persons, as long as we are comfortable with the available facilities.
There is no exagerations in the available facilities, like other hotels or resorts do thru their web sites. The facilities, features and even the photographic feel that its web site gives us are exactly present there.
Its perfect for two families with two or three kids, who do not expect the luxury like that of a 3 star hotel.
Its a villa with two double bed rooms, hall, kitchen, dining room, bath room etc. The kitchen is equipped with gas stove, vessels, and a small fridge.
Those who are interested in cooking can do some medium level of cooking like chapathies, tea, coffee etc. If we can bring some curries cooked from home and keep it in the fridge , we need not depend any hotels for food.
Also there is a menu card of a nearby hotel at kuttikanam who will bring food on call. We only need to pay an additional amount for transportation.
The entertainment features include a TV with dth, indoor games(chess) and a nice tent. Our kids enjoyed a lot building the tent and playing inside the tent.
The misty morning view on opening the front door of Thushaaram was very much refreshing..
It was really a memorable trip for us whose main reason was the confortable, joyful and peaceful stay at Thushaaram.
Special thanks to the care taker Johny chettan and to the Propreitor Mr.Shyamlal.
