This is our little slice of heaven in the forest. It is ideal for those looking to unwind surrounded by the sounds of nature and water side by side. Unplug from the daily grind of work and detach yourself from technology and constant texts.
La Mangalam Residency is a smaller establishment with 6 rooms providing added serenity and privacy. It is easily accessible from Thiruvananthapuram or Kollam. Situated within the reserve forest, it is 400 meters from the Eco Tourism Gate boundary at Kallar Junction enroute to Ponmudi the second highest peak in Kerala.
The Mighty Kallar River, feeding water to a major portion of the District, flows in front of the Residency. She beckons you to have a dip in the pristine water right at our doorstep, or at the Meenmutty Water falls. The falls are a short 1.5 km trek through the forest, with a guide to follow all the while. If you embark in a early hours of the morning, you have the privacy of the waterfalls to yourself.
The spacious ensuite rooms are on three floors with their own little outdoor balcony space for those who would like to enjoy the greenery of the untouched forest.
You will have absolute peace with the sound of flowing water both in front and behind the resort. The forest authorities have put up electric fencing to keep wild elephants outside the resort perimetere. They come to the river mostly during the dry season spanning March to May.
We serve tasty Keralite food on request only. As the ocean is a distance away, if fish is required, it will need to be ordered the previous day so that preparations can be made. Kitchen and dining area are in the single story house next to the main building.
