Staycation Expertise at CGH Earth Mantra Koodam in Kumbakonam
We are currently living in difficult times where we are unemployed, stay at home for security reasons and most importantly, many people lack travel and stay in some places that we had dreamed of visiting in 2019 or in previous years.
Being in a city is another thing where we limit ourselves to concrete construction for most of our day. We miss nature and decide to visit these picturesque places. One such place to stay is CGH Earth Mantra Koodam.
The CGH Earth Mantra Koodam is located in Veppathur, Kumbakonam, and is a divine place shaped like an “Agraharam” – the characteristic Brahmin street, lined with “Illams” (houses). Once you step in here you will be impressed where you step into the old school place. It is the place where cultures, communities and traditions thrive in harmony. When you walk in you can hear the bell ringing which is a whole different type of experience
The cottages here are designed in traditional Tamil style, with large verandas, Athangudi tiles on the floor, ornate Burmese teak doors, and open bathrooms. If you stroll around the place you will find green coconut groves, temple shrines and the location makes your stay here a really comfortable experience.

Particular care and attention is paid to the dining area, where it is necessary to remove the mask when eating. Therefore, the dining area is set up so that no two families can sit next to each other nearby. The seating arrangement is made in such a way that the chairs are at least spaced apart and meet social distancing standards. The food is well prepared taking into account safety and hygiene. The staff takes extra precautions when serving us food.
