Anantya’s design is inspired by Laurie Baker and Geoffrey Bawa’s ideals of minimalism, eco friendliness and trueness of materials. The resort has been designed to leave a minimal eco footprint, using reconditioned tiles and stone pillars, locally procured rubble and brick, sewage treatment and water saving, contour constructions and many other techniques. Anantya features 21 lake facing villas in 4 categories, each offering something special to the discrening traveler. The villas seamlessly blend the outdoors and the indoors to create a refined space to retreat and relax. Rustic local finishes of mudwalls, exposed brickwork, handmade tiles on sloping roofs, rubble masonry mesh, and tasteful interiors with large windows lets our guests experience the tropics from the comfort of the indoors.
