Philipkutty's Farm is simply magical. I will try to put a few words together, but I know they will not do justice to this ultra-atmospheric, soul-enriching place. Anu and her family and were so welcoming, we truly felt like we were "at home." The beauty and stillness of the place redefines time and reminds you of what relaxation can be....

I really wanted to experience the backwaters but not particularly in a houseboat. This was the perfect place for that as all the houseboats pass the farm and set an amazing ambiance! Anu was so generous and welcoming, telling us about her family and the history of the farm! The food is just out of this world - fresh and...

From the second we arrived through the gates in to Philipkuttys world, life slowed down to a wonderful peaceful and tranquil pace. The experience started by the boat pick up and the greeting on arrival. The accommodation is gorgeous with refined features, amazing beds, bathrooms and areas to watch the backwaters go by. A truly special place. The food was...

Anu and family run a wonderful Coconut farm that is open to staying guests on an island right on the Kerala backwaters. The 7 little villas on the farm are delightful, comfortable and charming. We ate our meals in the communal outdoor dining area with the other guests (all interesting and well-travelled people with a sense of adventure) and the...

The stellar reviews from the guests who stayed here are for a reason. Beats any 5 star experience by the sheer 'home feel' of the place and the service. No one hovers over you as you go about the place .. as you eat .. or as you sit in your living area or balcony. It's the perfect place if...

We chose this home-stay on the reputation of the food and, like every place we visit, always like to stay longer than the average guest to appreciate our location. We found the communal eating when there were 14 people around the table a little cramped. The concept of having a “lazy Susan” works well if all the food is brought...

This was a wonderful part of our trip. I had stayed here before with my family and went back with my boyfriend 6 years later. Gorgeous rooms (every detail has been thought of), wonderful staff (family-run operation, such kind people), impressive spice plantation full of banana and coconut trees, great sunset canoe trip, delicious food at every meal, and a...

We were strongly advised to make a special trip to Philpkutty's Farm by some friends...we were certainly not disappointed. From the minute we stepped into the boat for the short trip across the water, we felt the care & attention that has obviously been put into the place. Very professionally run and business to be proud of. We joined in...

After a magical overnight trip on a houseboat, we docked at the farm’s jetty at mid-morning to be met by charming and welcoming Anou. We were here for the last three nights of our wonderful journey through Karnataka and Kerala and we could not have chosen a more idyllic finale! Our beautiful bungalow had an enormous bedroom (with very quiet...

We stayed here for just one night as part of a 6 week trip. We were made to feel very welcome, the food was excellent and the bungalow was extremely comfortable. As we had been travelling as a couple for several weeks it was a welcome change to meet others at meal time. I endorse all the other great descriptions...
