During our five days stay at Peermedu in Kerala, we were completely cut off from outer world, surrounded by big stretch of tea gardens spread across acres of greenery. We had three cooks at our service at our bungalow, who cooked excellent Kerala cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
During our stay, one of our friends was celebrating her birthday and we needed to getaway to some resort for change of scene. We rented a car and drove to Thrisangu Haven, a resort at Peermedu, 30 kms from Thekkady.
The minute we reached the place, I was mesmerised by its scenic beauty. This place is totally embraced by nature. The beauty spreads as far as eye could reach.
We climbed up the spiral stairways to watchtower to get a better view. It was quite cold up there and windy too
We just clicked few pictures and climbed down soon to walk around a manicured path with colorful flowers and spiced fragrant air.
We had placed our order for lunch as soon as we reached, so while it was being prepared we ventured around to explore the place.
There were honeymoon cottages, garden cottages and many tents. It would have been a perfect place to spend few days away from city, for somebody who was looking for getaway places in Cochin.
We were mainly there for food- a proper traditional Kerala cuisine. . Our host at Peermedu had booked a table for us with special birthday celebration arrangement. A double decker round table with salad dressing at lower shelf and cake on upper level, was set for celebration.
The heart of the restaurant was quite spacious with big round tables fairly spaced from each other and that’s where we were seated. There were more tables placed closer to large windows that offered great view of the landscape outside the restaurant. A wooden staircase spiralled up to more dining rooms. We soaked in extravagance of splendour in the restaurant.
We ordered fish curry, coconut rice, pepper chicken, salad and mixed vegetables. The food was excellent. Specially loved the fish curry and coconut rice that was cooked to perfection.
The big birthday cake was wheeled to our table after lunch. The restaurant had Wifi facility so it was possible for us to share the live birthday celebrations with our friends on Facebook.
It was a pleasant afternoon to spend at this resort.
