Founded in 1982, this landmark hotel fringing the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary has a unique character and ambience, still unsurpassed by any other resort in the area.
A Confluence of Creative Minds
Designed by the renowned British-born-but-settled-in-Kerala architect Laurie Baker, Ambadi is the first heritage hotel in the private sector in Kerala. Conceptualised on the traditional architectural splendour of a typical Kerala village, it boasts of even a thulasi thara and a nallukettu. The name Ambadi has been chosen by noted film maker G. Aravindan and the emblem for the resort has been designed by Kerala's famous artist Namboothiri.
Hotel Ambadi is promoted by Bipha Drug Laboratories (Estd. 1929), who have pioneered synchronising the time-tested knowledge base of Ayurveda with modern pharmaceutical technology and systems. Founded by an Ayurvedic doctor—Pappy Vaidyan—Bipha today has both Ayurvedic (Bipha Biotech) and Allopathic (Bipha Therapeutix) divisions with an avowed commitment towards spreading health and happiness.
Bipha also operates a houseboat service in Kumarakom. Click here for details.
