Fred and Wilma, better known as Paul and Sue will look after you from the time you arrive until the time you leave. Start the day walking the dogs with Paul and return to a sumptuous breakfast of fresh fruit, eggs and toast. Get Lesley to take you to the beach or a shopping expedition in Trivandrum. Or ride the...

I had a wonderful stay at Jasmine cottage and felt incredibly well looked after. I'm a solo female traveller (first time in India) and felt very safe. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the garden provides a great space to hang out in and watch the chipmunks stealing flowers! Sue and Paul are great hosts, they accommodated my topsy-turvy...

We had a fantastic stay at Jasmine Cottage - The Gate House was absolutely perfect for our young family: comfortable, private, spotlessly clean, safe for the girls to wander around the garden and visit with Holly and Honey the dogs. We felt completely at home thanks to Sue and Paul who are wonderful hosts- so welcoming and caring and full... More

Retuned after two years to spend a week at Jasmine Cottage. Once again found Jasmine cottage the perfect place to stay. We were met at the train station by Leslie, manager and tuk tuk driver from Jasmine cottage, who arrived with a taxi driver to transport us. He remembered and found us straight away, and his big smile immediately made... More

What a fantastic holiday. Sue and Paul are excellent hosts who can't do enough to make your holiday special. Jasmine Cottage is the perfect place to chill out, relax and unwind. The spotlessly clean house and manicured gardens are a haven of peace and tranquility. What Sue doesn't know about the local area and people isn't worth knowing and certainly... More

what can we say, our second visit to Jasmin Cottage and we can still see why it is no 1 on trip advisor. Sue and Paul are excellent hosts they can advise you on trips and arrange taxi's. The help they give is invaluable but they are certainly not intrusive and if you would rather arrange things alone you can.... More

Words connot possibly describe my holiday at Jasmin Cottage. The Photo's of the Hotel and grounds definitely don't do them justice and Paul and Sue go out of their way to make your stay as comportable and memorable as possible. No 'Deli Belly' for my friends or myself just fabulous fresh food, beautiful beaches and Sues well planned trips. Lesley... More

One word to describe our stay at Jasmine Cottage - FANTASTIC! The owners Sue and Paul (not forgetting Lesley the Manager/tuk tuk driver and font of all things local) are brilliant - extremely welcoming and friendly and also great fun to be around. We loved the fact that the beautiful house is out of the busy resort area and the... More

Our family (2 kids & 2 adults) recently stayed in the 'cottage' at Jasmine Cottage for close to two months. Sue and Paul, the owners and our hosts, made our stay there a wonderful experience and we would recommend it to anyone wishing to visit kovalam. They are a wealth of information about the area, go out of their way... More

Lying back on a lounger enjoying the cool of the late afternoon as the world idly passes you by. Priceless. Sue, the Commander-in-Chief. Paul, the Thief of Bad Gags (his line, not mine). A wonderful week where you'll get to meet their Indian family and you'll feed up well on the breakfast. As you can gather the 'title' is tongue... More
