‘Built using mud excavated from the very site that it stands on, the resort is a fine example of ‘Rammed Earth Architecture’, and a glowing tribute to vernacular construction methods.’*
The decor is minimalistic, the color palette earthy and everything made with natural materials.
The view from our room window on one side looked out to banana, pepper and coffee plantation, and on the other side a lovely little pond.
The property has a beautiful waterfall where we walked to one of the days and since it was just us, we got to own the scene. On another day we drove an hour to get to Kuruvadweep or Kuruva Islands, a 950-acre forest area comprised of three densely wooded uninhabited islands where we joined some Kuruchiya Tribal ladies in planting their organic paddy crop. More on that in another post soon.
Banasura Hill Resort makes for a captivating, rejuvenating and soul-nourishing vacation. And if you are accompanied by a camera, you will be click-happy, the way I was.
