Customer Hotel Reviews

Catherine Bedford says:

An excellent holiday - hotels, variation of locations, staff, guide, taxi drivers. Well planned by Nikhil on our behalf with attention to detail. The hotel staff being friendly felt more like friends and delighted to share their culture with us. The food was excellent, cookery lessons at Philipkutty's and Marai beach mean we have brought a taste of Kerala home to share. Looking forward to our next visit.
