Villa Panchavatti Pool.jpg

Luxury villa vacations truly offer the best escapes - your own private space while enjoying all the benefits of a first-class hotel. In Sanskrit, Avani means Earth and Laya means Abode. Avanilaya Resort is made up of three beautiful villas -- Villa Padimunu, Villa Panchavatti and The Third Place -- located on 24 acres of unspoiled countryside. Tucked within a lush natural setting and eco-friendly design, it is the best-kept-secret in the village of Corjuem near Aldona, with in-house chefs and spa services. The lush gardens teeming with birds & wildlife and the sweeping panoramas is the definition of a luxe boutique resort. A very private paradise, perfect for family holidays, honeymooners, writers/artists, corporate getaways, and stunning weddings.
