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...

The food was excellent and we even got to observe the cook one night to learn about traditional Kerala cooking. It is such a lovely location in the middle of the cardamon plants. Each...

Pirkko and her lovely staff made us so welcome in this beautiful house. Everything was perfect - the tastefully designed room, delicious food (the best we had in Kerala), excellent spa and stunning setting surrounded by cardamoms, exotic plants and wonderful bird life. We hope to return!

This was an amazing place to visit and stay! Upon arrival, we ere greeted by Pirrki, the General Manager who gave us an overview of the hotel, it's services and answered all our questions. She was kind, insightful and calming. (The roads to Thekkady are a bit nerve-wracking -- so calming is a very good thing!) We had an incredible...
