Each villa is tastefully decorated with antiques and showpieces collected by the owners over the years. You can tell by looking at the place that is a work of art, driven by passion and love for architecture and interior design, and most of all hospitality. 

All the villas are far from each other, ensuring privacy for travellers. Considering that it’s all glass, its a great idea to have the villas spread out so you can enjoy the lovely bathtub and the stunning views without worrying about your privacy.


The Glass House has an excellent team of managers, chefs and guides who act as the most wonderful hosts. The entire team, under the supervision of Mrs. Ramu, who lives on the estate,  works towards ensuring your experience is a magical one!

Special mention goes for the chefs who prepare delicious meals for you to enjoy during your stay. While some meals are served in the beautiful dining area, others are served in your villa's private balcony under the stars. Each and every meal at the villa retreat is an experience and leaves you completely full and satisfied!
