The name Arnetta has a very old-school feeling to it, almost Indo-British in its origin and the way it rolls of the tongue. It is also an apt name for the charming all-wooden cottages within the property, which evoke massive feelings of nostalgia and feel as welcome and warm as the embrace of nature itself.
The beauty of wooden cottages lie in their understated nature and the way they can easily blend with their surroundings. There is also the fact about convenience, as many modern architects still believe that wood is one of the best construction materials out there, but are probably not as versatile as concrete. But more importantly, wooden cottages leave a far lesser carbon footprint as compared to the others.
Step In and Breathe a Little
The cabins manages to capture your soul even before you set foot inside one, as the all-wooden handcrafted umbrella stand just invites you to take stroll in the woods with one in your hands. Places like these, it could rain anytime and therefore this thoughtful gesture does not go unnoticed to the trained eye. Once inside though, you can’t help but smile from ear to ear. Away from the cacophonous sounds of the city, it’s the ambient silence that hits you first. Wooden houses tend to sound warm and softer inside and your first steps within resonate with a thump which you might not notice otherwise.
Each Arnetta cabin comes with an attached overhanging balcony with different views, and in my case, it was of the small stream which runs through the center of the property. A couple of comfortable sit-in chairs complete the look, inviting you to curl down with a book and spend some quality alone time.
A Touch of Luxury
Whether as honeymooners, as a family or with friends, the wooden cottages at IBNII are perfect in every possible way. The cottages are thoughtfully designed and the small details are what really win you over. From the handmade eco-friendly slippers, to the freshly baked cookie jar for your evening tea, the little personal touches are all over the place if you care to observe. Walk in to the amply-spaced bathroom and you will spot the hot-water jacuzzi inviting you to take a dip in with a glass of wine in your hand. The all wooden walk-in closet is stylish and chic and the comfortable upholstery on the sofas and the bed just ooze warmth. Waking up in the morning to the sound of chirping birds and the rustle of leaves is nothing sort of magical. City life, you can stay away!
With the Arnetta wooden cabin, IBNII once again stays true to its core beliefs – that luxury and an eco-friendly stay can go hand-in-hand and complement each other without feeling forced.
