Kadavu is set in a sprawling ten-acre coconut grove among swaying, graceful palms. It’s architecture is authentic Malabar, constructed as it is, with laterite and palm wood. Its gabled red-tiled roofs, lotus ponds, bamboo superstructures and landscaped gardens, merge so well with the glorious scenery around, that it could well be mistaken for any of the stately homes of the region. Of course, the interiors blend tradition with the luxuries and amenities of modern living.
