Take a Plantation Walk:
Anantya Travancore occupies a small area of Vaikundum Estate, a working rubber plantation. “Vaikundum,” which in Hindu mythology is “the divine abode” provides a spectacular setting for the resort.
Vaikundum Estate is located in Kanyakumari district, the southern most district of India. The Estate has a long and rich history. These lands were part of the erstwhile state of Travancore (now Kerala) and were ruled over by the Travancore royal family. Under the Travancore royal family, these lands were only small agricultural holdings. The kings of Travancore assigned to local chieftains through royal proclamations.
In the early 20th century, a few Europeans, mostly Britishers, acquired the small land holdings and converted them into larger estate holdings. Sir Daniel Hamilton was one of the British planters who began to cultivate these lands. The estate was then known as “Kaliel Estate.” From Sir Hamilton, the estate passed into the hands of a trio of British planters-Thomas Patrik Madden Alexander, William Coombe, and Reginald Garnier. Among these planters, Thomas Patrik Madden Alexander is credited with introducing rubber plantations in Kanyakumari district.
In 1928, ownership of the estate passed to The Vaikundum Co., Ltd., which changed ownership and names a few times over the years. Since 1957, the estate has been owned and operated by one family. The estate is now a third generation family-owned business.
The construction of Chittar Dam I and II flooded the area and created the Chittar Lake, which has enhanced the beauty of the area. Anantya is located on the waterfront of Chittar Lake. For years, these quiet picturesque surroundings were only known to and enjoyed by a few gentleman planters. Anantya Travancore has opened up the area for others to enjoy.
