If you ever want to drop out and spend some time in quite contemplation in the backwaters then this is the place to do it. My only regret is that we only had one night. Years ago I stayed in the resort recently frequented by Prince Charles that is relatively close to the Farm, but is by comparison a charmless... More

We decided to splash out and stay at philipkutty's farm and we are so glad we did. The food was spectacular,the best we tasted on our trip. The sunset cruise that was included was lovely and the setting was amazing. I would return to Kerala just to stay at Anu's homestay. You eat meals communally and we met some lovely... More

Personal care, attention to detail at every level, and absolutely the best ever Indian food - the fusion of tastes and variety of dishes were outstanding. An amazing place to stay and rest a while from the hustle and bustle of mainland India. Anu, her lovely family and caring staff make sure your stay at Philipkutty's Farm is not just... More

Our stay at Philipkutty's Farm was a late change (upgrade) to the itinerary worked out with my tailor-made travel provider, so I hadn't had chance to look up details online first. As our driver took us along narrow winding back lanes I wondered where we were actually heading, then a small sign for Philipkutty's Farm and a track ending at... More

Philipkutty's Farm is run by Anu and her family, the cottages are spacious and clean although they do get pretty toasty at night. The food is all home-made and served at a big round table where you eat with your fellow guests which we really enjoyed, everything we ate was delicious and probably the best food we had whilst in...

Our stay at Philipkutty's was the highlight of our holiday, despite the fact that we had other marvellous experiences and hotels. We arrived by houseboat, having had an idyllic two nights on the Kerala backwaters. It was way before check-in time, as our houseboat had to return to base and be cleaned and prepared for the next guests. However, we... More

Actually the truth of the matter is that I'm quite reluctant to write about Philipkutty's. I wish I could keep this place as my own private secret and keep the world away from it. This is such an unusual place. I just melt when I think of it. So much attention is paid to even the smallest things. The flower... More

The greetings and the service we received for our two night stay was nothing but exceptional. Thought we may lose weight in India but was wrong after the amount of delicious food that we all ate. If you are game try the massage across the river but it is nothing that we expected. Was a great way to start our... More

Philipkutty’s Farm is all about peacefulness. We stayed with friends in two bungalow style rooms with a central area to sit and look out over the river and a sitting room to share with a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. It has delightful views and traffic of the river can be observed from all areas of the farm.... More
