Elephant Court, Periyar
The Elephant Court is an understated, elegant hospitality experience, both, for business and recreation. A pair of impassive, miniature elephants watch, as demure sari clad hostesses greet guests with jasmine garlands.
The hotel is situated on four acres, over a landscaped hillock. The architecture establishes the cultural identity of the property and is a marriage of traditional design and responses to contemporary demands. It explores the relationship between the environment and individuals. The extensive use of teak all around keeps the spaces cool and one’s senses are calmed by the connection with nature that wood provides. Subtle definitions of space provide a serene, yet dynamic environment.
