Poetree SarovarOttakathalamedu View Point Road, Amaravathy P.O, Thekkady, Kumily, Kerala 685509
Poetree was built with strong principles of natural conservation and sustainability, a sense of spirit that we refer to as ‘The earth and soul’. The resort structure and foundation is built from rock and rubble from the barren land that this once was. The exterior walls, plastered with sand and mud, own to Thekkady. The thatched roofs, built from local elephant grass, with the hands of the unique Mannan tribe from hardly kilometres away. Not more that 32 trees were felled during construction but yet, made up by 435 fruit trees planted back to the earth. The location gives us advantages of minimal air-conditioning and glazed walls that let in maximum light, thus with a low reliance on electrical power.
