Sandwiched between the mighty Western Ghats and the Arabian Sea, Kerala is an amazingly stunning and bountiful strip of land and many a ship has set sail in search of the veritable gold mine of spices grown in the upper reaches of her forests, since time immemorial.

The stimulating aroma of spices, the flight of a flock of wild geese in perfect formation, the mating call of a bull-elephant, the endless humming of the crickets, the honey-dewed wild flowering trees, the frolicking of baboons and the twinkling of the fireflies at night, are a few of the smells, sights and sounds that are mesmerising.

Bounded by evergreen flora and dotted with tall shady trees entwined with pepper vines, this exotic resort is a birdwatcher's delight (over 60 different feathered birds frequent the locale) and their constant chirping perfectly compliments the peace and tranquility that makes this the ideal getaway to rediscover oneself amidst Mother Nature, at her pristine best.

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."
Vijaya Corporate commenced operations way back in 1955 as a family business which included Agriculture, Finance and Small time trading. Today the company controls a wide array of business activities including Trading, Construction, Finance, Real Estate, Property development and Hospitality.

Kerala's emergence as one of the 10 Most Favoured Tourist Destinations in the world, has contributed to the phenomenal growth of the tourism industry in the state. Blessed by nature with meandering rivers, exotic beaches, palm fringed backwaters, temperate hill stations and emerald forests, Kerala attracts tourists from all over the world. The dearth of adequate tourism infrastructure in Kerala, today provides opportunities to visionary entrepreneurs. Thus
Vijaya Hospitality and Resorts Ltd., a Public Limited Company, was incorporated to fulfill this need.
The Elephant Court being the first in the chain of Resorts and Hotels.
Our new project: Approval has been obtained for a 5 star delux hotel with 7 star facilities. This project is located at Kundanoor, Kochi and will have many new amenities and facilities.

Snuggled into a cozy valley, high up in the hills, with the grand old forest peaks towering paternally around it. Cardamom Club is as cut off from the world as you can get.

Periyar, in Kerala, is the best-known wildlife sanctuary in south India. Though billed as a tiger reserve, Periyar is really famous for its wild elephants, 100-year-old artificial lake and its setting in the beautiful thickly forested Western ghats. This is not your best shot at spotting the Bengal Tiger considering there are less than 40 of them that inhabit an area of 777sq.km but there's plenty of other animals like the Nilgiri langoor, Nilgiri tahr, bison, deer, antelope and about 700 elephants to make the trip worthwhile. The Periyar Tiger Reserve consists of tropical evergreen, semi- evergreen and moist deciduous forests. Its legal status as a National Park is still pending and only one notification has been issued. It was declared a Project Tiger Reserve in 1978 and the first research started in 1991. The results indicate 49 species of mammals, 246 species of birds, 28 species of reptiles, 8 species of amphibians, 22 species of fishes and 112 species of butterflies. The core area is 350 sq.kms. The final notification of the buffer area is pending. The national park and the tiger reserve is rated as one of the best wildlife sanctuaries in India for wildlife photography, bird watching, elephant herds and tiger watching. 

The Flora & Fauna in the Periyar National Park

Some of the deeper valleys contain tropical evergreen forest with extremely thick tree cover that even bright sunlight finds hard to penetrate. These trees that have grown to amazing heights of up to 130-140 feet seems to having being there forever. The few level areas in the park contain marshy grasslands near the edges of the lake and other water bodies. Spread out across the park are also patches of semi-evergreen forest used as important cover by many of the animal species.

Apart from Elephants, the other animals to be seen in the Periyar sanctuary Kerala are Gaur, Wild Pigs, Sambar, Barking Deer, Mouse Deer, Dole or Indian Wild Dog and very rarely, a Tiger. There are, now, an estimated 40 tigers in the Periyar national Park. Four species of primates are found at Periyar - the rare lion-tailed macaque, the Nilgiri Langur, Gee's Golden Langur, Common Langur And Bonnet Macaque. Periyar also happens to be the habitat of the elusive Nilgiri Tahr, which is rarely to be seen.


The Misty Mountan Plantation Resort

The Misty Mountan Plantation Resort is located at an altitude of 3500 feet above sea level at kuttikkanam 40 km away from Thekkady. Located amid over 600 acres of plantation, it offers myriads of experiences that are sure to thrill an outdoors enthusiast. Stretches of coffee, cardamom, pepper and vanilla plantation and thick tropical vegetation form the major chunk of the landscape. Dotting the entire area are small and big two step and three step waterfalls. One can enjoy splashing in the cool cascade and feeling the chilly spray of the cascading water.

Facilities for fun activities like fishing, bird watching, canoeing etc are also available. Visitors can choose to go trekking where they can observe the rich and varied flora of the region. For the keen botanist each plant is labeled with its botanical name giving the genus and species. Trekking trails also offer numerous vantage points from where one can enjoy panoramic views of mist clad hills, silver streams flowing through rugged rocks. The tree house also promises a thrilling experience.

 For accommodation there is the Dewan’s Residence, a colonial style bungalow built in 1930 with two bath attached bed rooms, a dinning room, drawing room etc used by the former Dewan of Travancore.

An entire day or a few hours whatever be the choice, you can be sure that it will be a delightful stay with fun-filled memories. If however what the guests need is a place just to rest and unwind and enjoy a great lunch, Misty Mountain would be the best choice.
