Villa Rivercat

Mandrem Riverside

  • SLEEP / Moderate & Comfy

Tucked away between the ocean and meandering river, behind the sand-dunes of the sleepy and idyllic fisherman village of Mandrem, is the Villa Rivercat. The house has been inspired by the surrounding nature of tropical forests and the serpentine river creek, and has been built of local stone and wood. 

VILLA RIVER CAT

THE HISTORY

The three-tiered spacious villa was built in 1990 on a lush tropical property facing a river creek that slowly ebbed into the ocean. The retreat was built on locally available wood and stone. Now, the verdant garden and the creek serve as idyllic backdrops for this charming artistic retreat. 

THE HOUSE

The house is decorated with art and artefacts that the owner, Rinoo Arora, has collected over his travels across in India. The ambiance here is casual, friendly and artistic. The atmosphere here is more of a retreat than a guest house, where guests and owner mingle over leisurely meals.
