“Amazing welcoming stay at Sajhome!”
Reviewed 1 April 2014 via mobile

Sorry Saj its taken so long for me to write this review, we've been moving house and finding jobs since getting back to UK! Anyway, we had a lovely stay at sajhome - but on top of that Saj was so helpful and answered all my silly questions by email quickly and very friendly before we got to India and arranged an awesome driver for us too for 7 days (Ramesh - so accommodating and felt like we saw so much of Kerala with him.) The service at sajhome surpasses many 4 star hotels we stayed at, the ac was a lifesaver and we had the best banana smoothies for breakfast, I miss them - and nice to have some fruit feeling safe we'd not get ill from it too ha ha! As with all the other reviews we've for nothing bad to say - we Would wholeheartedly recommend Sajhome if youre staying in fort kochi, thank you Saj!

We had a very nice start in India and Sajhome. The rooms are very nice and the breakfast in the morning was very good. Saj helped us a lot organizing things, so we did a trip to the backwaters, which we can recommend. His family is very cute and they all made us feel comfortable.

Saj was a great host. When we arrived before we knew it our bags were whisked upstairs to our room, Saj had welcome drinks and a bottle of mineral water waiting for us. He quickly gave us an introduction to the area and things to do. This really set us up well for the trip.

The room was tidy, comfortable, cleaned every day with fresh towels. Soap and toilet paper provided (bring ur own shampoo's). The air conditioner kept the room cool.

Every morning there was home cooked local delicacies for breakfast and generous servings with more always being offered coupled with tea/coffee, fresh juice (which I loved) and a plate of local fruit of the day.
The location is convenient to most attractions in Fort Kochi with the bigger city (Ernakulum) a 30 mins ride away with a cost of 5-7 Euros by Auto rickshaw (Tuk-Tuk)We wanted to go to ayurvedic massages, check out local cultural dances, go on a boat ride and experience local food. Saj was able to organise it all for us - of course we could probably find them all on our own but it was convenient that Saj could arrange through his associations with these groups. There is an ATM in the same building.

We had tons of bags which Saj was very helpful accommodating after we checked-out. He let us store them in a room for the day which even had its own bathroom for us to freshen up before we continued on our journey that evening.

The cherry on the cake is Saj's interpersonal skills - he always has a smile (so does his family and staff), always willing to help. Loved our stay.

When we arrived after a winding long drive from Munnar, Saj greeted us by name. We were given bottled water and a welcome lassi as we were registering. Saj provided maps and info on walking and dining, all very accurate and helpful. Room was simple, with good reading lights for each twin bed.

We (two Australian friends) recently stayed at Sajhome. Saj arranged for a driver to pick us up very early from the airport and was awake to greet us with a smile when we arrived. The rooms are charming, exceptionally clean and in a great location to wander and explore all that Fort Kochi has to offer. We also requested Saj's help in organizing a trip up to Munnar, the driver and accommodation was also excellent.
Breakfasts on the terrace are lovely and served with genuine Indian hospitality.
Thank you to you and your family Saj - we had a terrific time.
