Thekkady’s first heritage hotel, designed by British-born, Indian architect Laurie Baker, Hotel Ambadi is swaddled in the breathtaking greenery of the Periyar wildlife Sanctuary. It is just a short walk away, and visitors have immense number of ways to entertain themselves. Sustainable, Eco-Friendly Architecture and Organic Interiors are what stands out in the design by this Padma Shri-awardee.
Construction started on an earnest level, led by visionary and social entrepreneur, late Mr Raju Varghese. At the very start, there were four rooms and dorms, and a 30-cover restaurant.
Ambadi is built in the likes of a traditional Kerala village. The resplendent architecture and buildings blend with the stunning background of the wildlife sanctuary.
