“Pammae Palace is highly recommended !!”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

This guesthouse is highly recommended You have the best of both worlds - it is only 3km from
the beach (a short rickshaw ride) and yet in a peaceful location.

The house is large and airy with 2 available lounges for relaxing and a splash pool. We had a downstairs rear corner bedroom facing the pool area. It was spacious, lovely and cool (we did not use the a/c) and the ensuite bathroom was excellent. Free wi fi, lending you an Indian mobile phone, negotiating discount rates with local rickshaws and taxis as well as providing all the info you need for sightseeing and shopping are just a few examples of what is provided as a matter of course.

Pam and Geoff the owners go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay and treat you as one of the family. Nothing is too much trouble for these very kind and generous people.

Thanks once again - we will be back.

We were so very happy to stay with Pam and Geoff. The stay was a real home from home experience. Geoff was kind enough to arrange visits for us to local sights which we probably would have missed otherwise. Pam was always on hand to offer drinks. The rooms were very comfortable and with the house being in a quiet street this ensured an excellent nights sleep.

Room Tip: Book now and dont miss out

A large, beautiful, well equipped house which was a pleasure to stay in for 5 nights.

Geoff and Pam did their utmost to make us feel at home and were so helpful with lots of local knowledge........which we really appreciated. We had a large airy room on the top floor, with beautiful views over the countryside.
Yes, it's a short walk to the beach, but only a cheap taxi ride back.
This was our first visit to India and would love to return.

We've just returned from Pammae Palace after spending a full month there. Geoff and Pam looked after us and made us most welcome. We would never stay in a hotel again as you get far better rooms, service and advice here than anywhere else. I agree that during the religious festivals it can be a bit noisy at night but if you just close the windows and put the fan on you soon get to sleep. We found the location perfect for Samudra and Lighthouse beach. It was easy to walk down in the day to both beaches, only 20 - 25 minutes and then we'd get a very cheap rickshaw back. Geoff and Pam save you a lot of your valuable holiday money and if everything goes to plan we will be going back for a month next year.

We've been to India 6 times and this is by far the nicest place we've ever been, Geoff and Pam met us at the airport and though out our made us feel welcome and treated us like we were family.
The room was spacious with air con but we didn't need it as there was a lovely breeze that kept the room nice and cool. You can have the windows open as they all have mosquito nets. They have excellent local knowledge and can advise on what are the best trips to take and arrange local drivers to take you anywhere at a good rate. If we decide to return to India we would only go if we could stay here again

We stayed with Pam n Geoff for 16 days, had a wonderful Hol, our 3rd time to Kerala. Geoff was very helpful with his tips on transport n local prices, Pam was an absolute poppet jolly and always a smile. Nothing was any trouble at all breakfast was lovely. Great little touches made the difference gave us a local mobile and provided us with a tuk tuk driver. I want to go back now!!! We took my mum and when mum
