We spent 2 nights this past Diwali break with Dr. Joseph and Mrs. Cecily Poopally - what a beautiful experience. We stayed in the room facing the backwaters. It was simple but clean with comfortable beds, air conditioning, 24 hours running water and electricity. The Poopallys are in their early 80s and 70s but you would never guess given their boundless energy, enthusiasm and generosity towards their guests. Dr Poopally was very happy to entertain us with bits of kerala history, culture, family stories and mrs Poopally fed us the most delicious, delicately spiced suriani food. Each meal consisted of at least 2-3 vegetables or curries and no item was repeated during our stay. Non vegetarians will love the fish and chicken curries she makes - my husband said they were brilliant. What's more they grow almost everything the cook or have to offer - spices, exotic fruits, vegetables, rice, coconuts even their own cacao, chicken and fish intheir pond. Ask Dr Poopally to take you on a garden tour- he even gave me plant cuttingsto take back home! Loved this place!
