Purity is a complete escape and a real surprise. You access from a typical busy Keralan road, down a bumpy dirt track and arrive at the wonderful Purity. We stayed in a 3 room garden suite by the pool which was beautifully decorated and so quiet, we didn't want to leave. Breakfast around the courtyard was very good, but it's...

Mary and all the other staff here were welcoming. The boat trip on the lake was a lovely opportunity to see some of the birds and the fishing nets. Food was excellent and the pool was good especially for an early morning swim, before breakfast.

It would be hard to conjure a place so dreamily atmospheric and splendidly isolated as Purity proved to be. From the moment we arrived the mood was established. We were greeted by Mary, the Guest Relations manager, always beautiful and ever smiling, she overlooked nothing and approached every query and request with utmost grace, efficiency and warmth. Perfection was her...

We recently stayed at Purity. The property is beautiful, but the staff is what made our visit truly special from the very first, when we got out of our car and were greeted by the concierge Mary to our exceptional driver/guide Suneesh with whom we traveled around Lake Vembanad, ventured inland to Thekkady and then on to Kovalam. Suneesh brought...

As always, great staff make a great hotel. Add a lakeside location, good food, warm pool and you've got perfection. We had a problem with the room we were given, it had no windows and felt claustrophobic. Once moved to a bright room, we really enjoyed our stay. There are two little cats living here, just about hanging on for...

From the unprepossessing approach on a busy and noisy road 1-2 hours south of Kochi you would have little idea you would arrive at one of the most serene and beautiful locations. A lovely setting on a the side of the enormous placid inland lake stretching decades of km to the north and 15 km wide. This was where we...

We had a lovely garden suite. There are only 14 rooms and service is extremely good and personal. The food is lovely. Breakfast and lunch around a central courtyard with a pool and stepping stones across it. Dinner is at the edge of the lake. I enjoyed the yoga in the morning before breakfast. We also had a complimentary trip...

After some initial problems with our room we were rapidly upgraded to a lovely room with a balcony. The location is just perfect if you wish to relax at your hotel. The gardens, pools, spa, food are excellent. The staff are very attentive but not too so. It would also provide an excellent base to explore the area - including...

This our ideal hotel. May not suit everyone but for us it was discrete excellence. Quite beautiful location overlooking the lake - in fact our boat dropped us off after our boat trip, only 16 rooms (or something like that) it is like staying in a private house (which i assume it once was). Everyone knows you, no signing for...

After Malabar House Port Cochin, and Serenity at Kanam Estate, we were so delighted to continue our Malabar Experience at Purity. It was a most interesting drive from Serenity to Purity. After driving down a narrow dirt road, off the main road, to reach Purity, we experienced another Malabar treat to the eyes. This hotel is beautifully decorated with antique...
