Jalakara Details 

Overview

We love boutique hotels but we also love private villas - our concept for jalakara was to take the best bits from each and roll them into one. jalakara offers the informality, homeliness and bespoke possibilities of a private villa with the private space, service and staffing of a small hotel. We aspire to a house party experience where guests naturally meet over sundowners at the pool bar or making a pot of coffee in the main villa kitchen. And perhaps even become friends! ​
guests are encourage to unplug and log off from the digital excess of modern life and reconnect with themselves. we do not offer wifi or in-room audio-visual flatscreen entertainment, instead, log on to the beautiful tropical surroundings and the analogue pleasures of zero pollution, good food, good company, playing games, reading, swimming, massage, hassle free beaches and the great outdoors. ​​
Jalakara is very boutique with three rooms, three suites and one private villa. We have a dedicated team of fourteen who defy the logistical challenges of our remote, off-grid, island location to deliver friendly, informal but efficient service. so while there is no fawning service, gold tap & pillow menu luxury - instead we offer the rare luxury of staying somewhere authentic, raw and beautiful in a spectacular setting. ​
Jalakara first opened its doors to guests in December 2015 prior to our first full season opening in October 2016. Originally the property was an overgrown banana & betel nut plantation backing onto tropical rain forest. there was something lovely about the location -the quality of light in the afternoon, the abundance of nature and glimpses of fabulous views across the forest towards the sunset and sea.
Since then we have cleared the plantation, landscaped the property, planted trees, shrubs and flowers, dug a well and built a road. Working closely with a talented and dedicated team of architects, builders and craftsmen drawn from across India and beyond, the buildings and garden gradually took shape, developed and matured.
