Philipkuttys is a quiet, comfortable homestay with excellent food. It provided a gentle couple of days, savouring the beauty of the Backwaters before returning to the UK. Unlike most of the other places that we stayed at in S.India, the other guests at the homestay were largely European. The spicing of the food reflected that I think - it was...

We visited here for lunch. Wonderful location approached by boat and greeted by the owner and her family. We were invited to wonder around the farm looking at the various plants and vegetables while the lunch was being prepared. The food cooked by the family is interesting and absolutely delicious. A lovely relaxing venue, a unique experience and absolutely wonderful...

My husband and I just finished 2 nights of our honeymoon at the farm. This place is seriously perfect and breathtaking. We were so sad to leave and felt we could have spent all our honeymoon there! The rooms are lovely, big and clean with views that bring so much tranquility and are great for nature lovers. The food--unreal! Anu...

This was the first place we stayed on our trip to Kerala. In many ways I wish it had been the last as it set the bar incredibly high. The rooms are wonderful - full of character - clean & comfy. The location is magical & the food absolutely fantastic. Would highly recommend. Our kids were 14, 12, 7 &...

This is a remarkable place to stay. You arrive by boat which takes you across the waterway with the farm spread out on the opposite bank. Greeted on arrival by the owner Anu and her children. The villas are excellent beautifully designed and very very comfortable ... even the wifi worked most of the time in the room. Separate lounge...

From the moment of booking this home stay, I felt confident that it was going to amazing. Anu's communication through email was great and very helpful. Then as soon as we got on the boat across the lake to Phillipkutty's farm, we felt like we had reached paradise. The cottages were beautifully decorated and gave us a lot of space...

gliding across the lake to Philipkutty's Farm and the gracious welcome of Anu (and her mother, her mother-in-law and an aunty), was one of the highlights of our gastronomy trip. We learnt to grind coconuts (sitting on a contraption on the floor - its hard work) and cooked the most wonderful Fish Moolie and other delights, then shared them with...

This family is a gem. Three generations were there to take care of us. We arrived by punt from the main land and from that moment on you were enveloped in their warm embrace. This is a great place to chill, learn to cook, chat with fellow guests, see the sunset, watch the Chinese fishing nets in action, wonderful bird...

Philipkutty's farm was one of the highlights for both me and my husband during our trip. You arrive in style(!), being picked up by a small punt across the river and Annu's family meet you on the other side. The buildings on the farm are well appointed and elegant - the room we had was at the end of the...

A Phillipkutty's Farm stay is exquisite in every way. The welcome and loving hospitality of Anu and Anniammi wraps around you like a silk sari, the delicious food feeds your soul as well as your stomach. It is an almost wickedly luxurious but equally natural experience - quite simply, it is Heaven on Earth. We found a little piece of...
