We were at the end of a tour which was exciting but tiring and we were glad to unpack for five days. We stayed in Hibiscus Villa and found it to be one of the best and most relaxing places we had visited. The garden and the pool which are your own are very private. The food was excellent and...

We had 3 nights in Hibiscus Villa followed by 4 nights in Orchid Villa. Hard to choose as both great but we liked Orchid because of the large window overlooking the pool and the front garden with chairs and a fan. Both have outside toilets and showers with lovely plants growing in them. There was nobody else there so we... More

The staff were lovely, the food delicious and the whole area so peaceful and relaxing. We took some lovely long walks, chilled by... More

I booked the Orchid Cottage at Marari Villas months in advance as we wanted to stay over New Year and I knew it would get booked up quickly seeing as the property is only small. We booked our stay via email as well as arranging a couple of tours and an airport drop off. If you plan to arrive on... More

There are hardly words to express the wonder of this place. It is an oasis of beauty and peace, especially after the hubbub of the towns. Rupert and Olja could not be more considerate and nothing is too much trouble. The staff are wonderful and food absolutely delicious, and presented beautifully. As an elderly woman travelling alone, I felt completely... More

My wife joined me after I had visited Kerala on business. I stayed in 3 other hotels and locations and this was leagues ahead of everywhere else I stayed. We had 5 days in one of the most stunning locations in the very beautiful state of Kerala. The owners and the staff are very professional, courteous and friendly. The beach... More

We spent the last 2 nights of our Kerala holiday at Hibiscus Cottage and our stay was a wonderfully relaxing way to end what had been a great holiday. The villa is well designed and very well appointed, the managers have thought of everything for the guest's comfort. The small enclosed garden with plunge pool is a bonus. Most of... More

I thought I should write a terrible review to stop too many people going to this place as I want to be able to book, but that wouldn't be fair on Rupert & Olga and their fantastic team. We stayed for 2 nights in Hibiscus Cottage and this was the real highlight of our trip. It takes a little getting... More

We travelled in Kerala in January and we were fortunate enough to stay in two of Olga and Rupert's villas - Orchid cottage for 5 days, and Palm villa on the beach for 3 days. Both had the same fantastic set up - the staff at each were wonderful, the food excellent and the standard of accomodation first class. Candle... More

Wow....it couldn't have been a more perfect way to begin our two week holiday in Kerala. We were celebrating a friend's big birthday and Olga, Rupert and their wonderful team made it her best birthday....ever!
