We spent 3 days in Kuzhupilly over Christmas holiday. Here we started our trip which lasted 3 weeks. It is definitively the best place we stayed. We found it exactly how we expected it. It is situated in a very quite village, far from caotich cities, where there aren't any other tourist than the guests of the house. The beach is really quite and often desert, being populated only from fisher men from time to time. It is possible to see dolphins swimming.
The village is about 30Km from Kochi. Once there you'll spend most of the time relaxing at the beach, canoeing in the backwaters, biking around or chilling out in the terrace of the house. You can get also an ayurveda massage in a small centre of the village. Closest city is Cherai, where there's nothing to see or do actually, so you can easily avoid it if don't need to get money from ATM (they accept only cash)!The house is very pretty. Rooms are clean and colored. On the top of the house there's the big terrace where guests can eat and relax. Food is awesome: a chef is cooking raffinated dishes both for breakfast and dinner. We have eaten everything (fruit and watermelon shakes included) without having any stomach problems.
All the food is accurately washe/prepared with water from bottles.
Least but not last the Kuruvilla family are very friendly and helpful, taking great care of their guests. We really enjoyed this place and strongly advice it!
