Reflecting on the cultural heritage of Andhra Pradesh, with a touch of Greek art, Kuteerams is the latest addition at Palm Beach Hotel in Vizag. Designed by Ameet Mirpuri, a total of seven twin-bed cottages with delightful views of the Bay of Bengal adorn the place.
As you walk towards the Kuteerams, an array of stone textured pillars, echoing ancient South Indian architecture, catches your attention. Reminding a typical townhouse, the gangireddu (bull) wall, mounted at the entrance, invites the visitors. With a whiff of freshness, teal dominates the interiors of the cottages.
The art continues inside the Kuteerams too. Bringing the spirit of a quintessential Indian household, wooden closets with metal grills are set up. Drawing parallels with the Greek style of angelic bedposts, the headboards in the Kuteerams are decorated with Indian angels aka apsaras. While the ceiling resembles a muggu (rangoli) pattern, tholu bommalata (leather shadow puppetry) paintings spruce up the bedrooms. The panels in the living room are inspired by Greek skyline with notable church domes and arches.
