The stellar reviews from the guests who stayed here are for a reason. Beats any 5 star experience by the sheer 'home feel' of the place and the service. No one hovers over you as you go about the place .. as you eat .. or as you sit in your living area or balcony. It's the perfect place if...

We chose this home-stay on the reputation of the food and, like every place we visit, always like to stay longer than the average guest to appreciate our location. We found the communal eating when there were 14 people around the table a little cramped. The concept of having a “lazy Susan” works well if all the food is brought...

This was a wonderful part of our trip. I had stayed here before with my family and went back with my boyfriend 6 years later. Gorgeous rooms (every detail has been thought of), wonderful staff (family-run operation, such kind people), impressive spice plantation full of banana and coconut trees, great sunset canoe trip, delicious food at every meal, and a...

We were strongly advised to make a special trip to Philpkutty's Farm by some friends...we were certainly not disappointed. From the minute we stepped into the boat for the short trip across the water, we felt the care & attention that has obviously been put into the place. Very professionally run and business to be proud of. We joined in...

After a magical overnight trip on a houseboat, we docked at the farm’s jetty at mid-morning to be met by charming and welcoming Anou. We were here for the last three nights of our wonderful journey through Karnataka and Kerala and we could not have chosen a more idyllic finale! Our beautiful bungalow had an enormous bedroom (with very quiet...

We stayed here for just one night as part of a 6 week trip. We were made to feel very welcome, the food was excellent and the bungalow was extremely comfortable. As we had been travelling as a couple for several weeks it was a welcome change to meet others at meal time. I endorse all the other great descriptions...

My wife and I stayed here for one night as part of our 6 week tour of India. We were taken across to the property by punt and were given a warm welcome by the owner. An American couple joined us in the punt and they were stopping for lunch only as the place was fully booked. Breakfast, lunch and...

This place is truly special. Returning for our second visit we have enjoyed a 12 night stay. The villa was amazing - I don't know why Philipkuttys is rated at only two stars as we've stayed at four stars in India nothing like as good as this superior standard. The food at Philipkuttys has an international reputation and is featured...

A fantastically located, 7 cottage homestay, situated on the banks of a 35 acre island in the Keralan backwaters. You are taken across to your traditionally furnished but well appointed cottage by punt and are welcomed into Annu and Annima's idylic world. Warm hearted staff provide wonderful food three times a day, much of it coming from their own farm....

You arrive by punt. The fact that many fellow guests were staying for several weeks and were repeat visitors is a testament to the quality of the experience. It is an active farm but for visitors it is a wonderfully peaceful experience. Full board with meals at a communal table (up to 12). Conversations roam wide and food is varied...
