Inspired by the region, Ahua which means nature in Maori is our all day dining area in our resort in Wayanad, where you can indulge in a variety of local flavors from around the region. The concept of Ahua is to eat local and think global. Be it the seasonal fresh fruits, the plantation produce, the sumptuous Kizhisadhya or the delicious paayasam, Ahua never lets down anyone willing to try out local flavors of Wayanad. At After The Rains Resort in Wayanad, we try to meet our requirements of milk, eggs, honey,spices and fruits from our own farms.
Being the most important meal of the day, breakfast is a careful selection of buffet and Table D 'outh.
