The Pamba Heritage villa, Alappuzha / Alleppey, Kerala, India is a 109 year old wooden mansion which has been handed over to the succeeding generations by the great ancestors of the famous Kanjooparambil family. This Heritage Villa is situated on the banks of the holy river Pamba. Hence the name The Pamba Heritage Villa. The Pamba River is the third longest river in the South Indian state of Kerala and the longest river in the erstwhile princely state of Travancore.
The Pamba Heritage Villa is the ancestral home of the famous Kanjooparambil family. The portion of the house where the guests stay was originally the Ara and the Nilavara which were used to store paddy and other grains in olden days. It has now been converted into beautiful, spacious and ventilated bedrooms with attached bathrooms, having all modern amenities.
The guests rooms form a separate unit in the house and privacy is guaranteed. All guests are being engaged by my father Mr.K.C Thomas (Retd. Dy.Director, Finance, Rubber Board, INDIA) and my mother Mrs.Leelamma Thomas. We have a guide and a cook to ensure better service to our guests.
