Pranavam is an ancestral property of a prominent Hindu family of yesteryears gifted to them by the Pazhassi Raja (popularly referred to as the Lion of Kerala for his fight against British occupancy) on account of the family's contributions to society. Handed down over generations, since the last 30 years, the property is being operated by a retired couple and their immediate family members as a homestay option for visitors seeking to enjoy authentic, rural fare and way of life amidst Mother Nature.
The runaway success of this venture over the years prompted the family to expand the business to set up perhaps a first-of-its-kind fully fledged luxury resort with multiple homestay options, complete with all modern amenities in tandem with the lay of the land and in perfect harmony with the environment, to accommodate their ever-growing clientele The spanking-new Pranavam Resort & Spa is a destination in itself, packed with options for an adventure holiday and/or a laid-back vacation savoring the wonders of Nature focused at rejuvenating your body, mind and soul, naturally.
Over the last 30 years we have focused on the highest quality of service in the hospitality industry while ensuring that we offer our guests surprisingly authentic experiences with a local flavor – the mantra of our success. Every guest is treated as a member of the family and encouraging ecotourism and supporting environmental consciousness in combination with proactive sustainable practiceshas been a practice since inception. We believe that the culture, environment and economy of our local community is fragile, requiring a sustained commitment from every one of us to ensure that together we have a lasting positive impact and minimal footprint.
We only serve authentic organic fare at Pranavam and we go the extra mile to ensure that our venture at all times lends not only meaningfully support to our community but also serves as a source of education, positive cultural exchanges and financial incentives to protect the natural environment while at the same time offering our invaluable guests an unforgettable experience.
