We stayed here for 2 nights on our tour of Kerala and the only reason was to spend the morning with Lakshmi the elephant. I'm glad we didn't stay longer as there is literally nothing to do. Perfect if you want to chill out & relax though. Our room, we had booked a deluxe room, we were the only people...

We went to Serenity to chill out in the middle of our Kerala trip. I could not disagree more with the two reviewers below. the setting was lovely and quiet, the service was outstanding and personal, my wife's 4-hands person massage was one of her best ever, and my 5 mile trip on Lakshmi the elephant was one of the...

Serenity did not provide the luxury we have received at other Relais and Chateaux properties. We stayed at the same time as the previous reviewer and couldn't agree more with his comments. The Serenity has seen better days and is in need of some serious money being spent on bathroom fittings, wiring and redecoration. The pool was adequate, but the...

Serenity At Kanam was just that. A lovely place to rest half way through our tour of Kerala. The staff were lovely, as was the setting. The food was delicious and there were various activities to enliven the day. Foremost of these was the ride on Lakshmi the elephant. We rode her to a bathing spot in a nearby river...

Unobtrusive but friendly and helpful staff in a stylish setting are a recipe for relaxing. Really enjoyed all the inclusive activities - elephant ride, cooking demo (fish curry) and spice farm. The massage prices were too high to tempt us. Take binoculars - lots of bird life in the backdrop to the pool and around the house.

We have just spent two nights at Serenity and cannot praise it enough. Charming staff, especially the creative cooking by a passionate, young chef. Riding Lakshmi, the beautiful and gentle elephant was a first!!! and then the covered cart pulled by two bullocks at high speed down hill!! Yoga and massages to complete our stay. Thank you Serenity!

It is beautifully designed and maintained, though I think the staff make this hotel. Slightly to my embarrassment, I had the place to myself for a while, and everyone piled in to make sure I felt looked after. It's a boutique rather than a homestay but it has only 5 rooms, I think, so everything is very personalised. I had...

We have just spent 2 nights at Serenity with our 4 children (14, 12, 9 and 4) and with my mother (76!) and it was the best end of our holiday in India we could have hoped for. The rooms are beautiful in their size and simplicity, the views from the garden across the plantations are stunning and the service...

We stayed for 2 nights in this beautiful lodge above a rubber & spice plantation. The experience was outstanding. There is a stunning pool looking over the woods, & we were taken on a walk in the woods to see all the spices growing locally. The man who took the walk also served us all of our meals & he...
