Had the opportunity last January, to stay at this amazing place, along with my office team. It is a family run place, and in no time, we became part of the family. The villas are spread around the ancestral house of the family who runs this place. Devoid of any commercial extravaganzas, this is an ideal place for a quiet... More

We booked for 4 nights, but said we might want to extend. Well, we stayed for 7 nights, and had to drag ourselves away. As our TukTuk turned off the road and into the beautiful tree-lined drive of the estate, we were just enthralled. And even the geese who appear in many of the photos were there to greet us.... More

We were a group of two families looking for a place that was reasonable and not too far from Kochi. I was very happy with the overall experience from the responsiveness while booking the rooms, the food, service and overall atmosphere of the place like at the edge of the lake. It is clearly a homestay and hence your expectation... More
