Munkudil is one of the Top Wellness Resorts in Kerala, near Cochin. At Munkudil, we have 7 beautiful rooms, all slightly different from each other and having a beautiful connect with nature. All our rooms except the treehouse have a panoramic mountain and river-view.
Our entire architecture is eco-friendly and we have tried to incorporate the Pancha Bhootha or the 5 basic elements of nature, earth, water, fire, air, and space, in every room. Our rooms are named after the most popular flowers in Kerala.
DisclaimerWhile we strive to ensure that you get the room you asked for, due to online/offline bookings, the final allotment may be at the discretion of Munkudi’s Management based on availability.
01. Thulasi (Exotica River Edge 01)
This room is on the first floor of Munkudil. Thulasi is the sacred basil which is grown for religious reasons at Hindu households across India and has many medicinal properties as well.
At Munkudil, our entire first floor is made of natural red stones from Kannur, one of the northern districts in Kerala. Red stones have been an integral part of Kerala’s traditional architecture. The lintels and arches are made by the skilled artisans from Kannur who stayed back here for months together bringing back Kerala’s glorious traditional architecture to life.
The load-bearing technology was shaped up from these natural stones that brings out a unique beauty and look to the construction.
Watch out for the lotus pond artwork by the famous artist Lenin C P. It took him over 20 days to carve out a large single piece of wood into this beauty on site.
