At 3000 feet above sea level up in the majestic Western Ghats, 'SAJ Vagamon Hideout' is located at 'Vagamon', a sleepy little border town in the mountainous and forest covered 'Idukki' district of Kerala. 'Vagamon' is only accessible by road as there is no air or rail link to this small hamlet. Cochin International Airport is 100 kilometers away and the nearest Railway Station at 'Kottayam' is at a distance of 70 kilometers. Built by using only natural elements of mud & stone following traditional architectural techniques, the independent cottages in the property are spread around a placid lake. Covering an extent of 30 acres, this eco friendly resort is resplendent with a tea estate, vegetable farm, natural brooks, streams and many varieties of berry bearing shrubs within its ambit.
The climate throughout the year is somewhat steady at Vagamon, where the mercury never climbs up or down to extremes. This phenomenon provides a natural air-conditioning effect to the entire environment and obliterates the need for using artificial air-conditioners altogether. Yet the rains are mighty during its seasons and the accompanying winds can be scary at times. You could watch fog rolls softly coming down from the mountains on a little cat feet and enveloping the whole arena in no time, transcending the whole mood and setting of the surroundings to a highly romantic and nostalgic one. Many of us believe that we will not be able to survive without modern amenities, even for a day. When you reside at this hide out, this will be disproved. To help you stay close to nature and not to disturb its rhythm, we are not employing many of the modern day essentials like Television Sets, Electric Calling Bells etc.. in the property.
The silence is broken only by songs of little birds and crickets and the voices of squirrels all the time. The song of nature reaches its peak as night falls. Thousands of fireflies making manifold formations will feast your eyes with heavenly luminance during night hours. A peaceful hideaway, this is a very private location, somewhat remote, with a few neighbors. The main home is not visible from the road. With its vast extent it feels like copious acres of endless adventure opportunities and engages the dwellers in a time warp.
The Right of Entry to the property is only for pre-booked guests and the gates of the resort will open only for receiving them. At all other times the main gate remains closed. No walk-in guests are given entry to the property and no services including that of Restaurant is accessible to outsiders. Your privacy and security are completely safeguarded.
