My stay at Mundax was undoubtedly the highlight of my stay in Kerala. The privateness, peacefulness, cleanliness and space of Mathew's home and gardens were a real salve to the hustle and bustle of everyday life in India. It might sound strange, but I found the lightness of Mathew's home really soothing - other homes I visited were quite dark - perhaps it's a result of the shutters that keep out the heat - and in contrast the lightness, high ceilings and cool temperatures were blissful. It was the end of the monsoon season when I visited in August and I had difficulty adjusting to the climate in other parts of Kerala but found Kuttikanam a lot more comfortable. On a further visit I'd definitely do more of the days trips that are available like the Periyar Wildlife park, and also higher up the mountains to see more of the tea farms. I did make it to the Ayervedic retreat which is close by - and did a fascinating tour though their herbal medicine plant. Otherwise I was just happy to relax at Mundax and chill out doing very little except savour the relaxing environment and wonderful food - definitely worth another visit.
