And the next thing was the food. The food was delicious as much as quality. And we had a walk across the plantation which...

We were exploring Kerala with my son and daughter in law. We were met by Pirkko Paxton who manages the property. Our bedrooms were very large with their own sitting area and even our own private pool. The setting was in a spice plantation and so peaceful and lovely. We chose our massages in the massage rooms and they were...

This hotel is very nicely decorated and rooms are spacious and spread out around the property. The service was very good and food was excellent. No laundry service so pack extra clothes or have it sent to a local place in the village at your own risk. We traveled with small children so laundry became an issue but the staff...
