Situated on four acres, over a landscaped hillock.
The Elephant Court is located close to the Thekkady forests, about a kilometer from Kumali in the Southern Indian state of Kerala. The Thekkadi forests are home, both, to the Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary and to the Asiatic Elephant. The Periyar Wildlife Sanctuary is one of the best tropical wildlife sanctuaries in the world and is the repository of rare endemic flora and fauna.
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 Elephant Court being the first in the chain of Resorts and Hotels.
Elephant Court 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.
The dominant color theme in all the living spaces at the Elephant Court is composed of earthy hues of brown and pale green set off by crisp cotton sheets and pillows. The furnishing in cane and wood and jute subtly emphasize the connection with nature prevalent all over the property.
The accommodation at the Elephant Court comprises 52 Patio Rooms, 4 Executive Enclaves, 3 Garden Suites, 3 Pool Studio, 2 Honeymoon Suites and 1 Family Enclave.

Patio Rooms: The Patio Rooms are comfortably appointed with twin beds, a bath and toilet. Every room has a roofed patio, extending outwards at one end of the room, bound by a Charupaddy, an extended, carved wooden bench, representative of traditional Kerala architecture. The Patio rooms preserve a sense of privacy and yet offer a hint of the outdoors. All rooms have a coffee machine and a small refrigerator.
Executive Enclaves: Enclaves are distinctive spaces within spaces. The executive enclaves at the Elephant Court enable business travelers to luxuriate in the comfort of a resort and conduct business as well.

The suites are all equipped with the state of the art in communicative facilities.

Garden Suites: The suites are all provided with a secluded garden. Step out of the suite, into a verandah and a charming garden with a fish- pond lies ahead. It can be a magical experience, watching the rain come down during the monsoon. All the garden suites are equipped with a Jacuzzi.
