Arco Iris is set amongst verdant fields and wooded areas on a sloping 1.5 acres of land. The front edge of the property overlooks a seasonal lake which supplements the water requirements of the surrounding paddy fields.

The house itself is styled along colonial Portuguese lines with a high plinth, imposing columns, high ceilings and offers excellent year-round natural ventilation. The house, has been restored and renovated, true to its heritage and without compromising the modern day requirement for convenience and comfort. During the restoration process, all efforts have been made to preserve the original materials which have gone into the construction of the house by using them, at times, for alternate purposes. The end result is a house which reflects a judicious and tasteful blend of the modern and the traditional.
The “balcao” or the balcony, is the most social part of the house where any daily activity, be it catching up with neighbours, reading the morning newspapers, eating , or just plain lazing can be carried out. The “sala” or the high ceilinged living room is reserved for formally receiving and entertaining visitors.
The dining room is dominated by the dining table which can comfortably seat 8. Incidentally, once you see the dining table, you will be pleasantly surprised to know that it was originally one of the doors in the house !!.
All the bedrooms and the lounge have been suitably modified to accommodate ensuite bathrooms with all modern amenities. The colours of the bedrooms have been picked keeping in mind the colours of the rainbow, and therefore we can offer you a choice of yellow, blue, green, violet, orange and indigo rooms.
