My review largely echoes that of Woking 123 below. We have just returned from India, having spent a week on the 'Malabar Escapes - Boutique Kerala' package. It was truly awesome and certainly lives up to expectations. The video which you can view online from the Malabar House website is a true reflection of what awaits you.
The standard of the accommodation is high. The professionalism and friendliness of thw staff is impeccable. The food is great - 5* at Malabar House and extracts and themese of the same menu available at the other properties.
When we stayed the wifi at Malabar House was not working and I have read the same in other reviews here and in the guest book. This is hopefully a technical glitch which can be sorted.
Apart from that the holiday was tremendous - the transfers were in decent vehicles, were on time and were as described in the package information.
This is a high quality package which takes you to some truly fantastic properties which feel personal, private and special. The elephant ride, bullock cart ride, country boat trip, spectacular houseboat and great spa treatments were memories we will keep forever.
A 5* package certainly worth the price.
