Our holiday started with being very helpfully collected at the airport by the owner & his driver followed by a delightful boat trip to this small, simple & charming resort. With a palm-forested riverside location, friendly locals, oodles of exotic birdlife, cooling sea breezes & beautiful sandy beaches nearby, we soon relaxed our city ways. Food consisted of delicious local... More

We spent 7 nights in Friday’s place and had an absolutely relaxing time in this hotel. Friday’s place is a true eco-friendly place. The canals provide the water that gets filtered and is used for the showers, the electricity is provided by solar panels (there is a generator should there be not enough solar power, so there is never a...

We loved this place and really enjoyed chatting with Mark, a true eccentric, who sure had some amusing tales to tell and which kept us very entertained at meal times. Great, healthful food and much bird life to see too. All highly recommended.

This 'robinson crusoe' styled eco retreat isn't exactly what it says on the tin, so think carefully before handing over the steep high season rate. On the plus side, the staff are delightful and the food probably some of the best you'll taste in Kerala. And the boat trip there is quite magical. But that's kind of where it ends.... More

My wife and I started our holiday in Kerala by staying at Fridays Place. After a very long journey, arriving late at Trivandrum airport, we were delighted to meet Mark who had come to pick us up from the airport with a local driver. After a car ride, it felt like a small adventure to hop on Mark's boat and... More

Friday's Place was one of the highlights of our three month trip around the South of India. The beauitful and natural design of the architecture is a great feat and the place has an environmentally friendly ethos that is hard to come across in rural India. We were looked after with the upmost care. Mark, the owner, employs a great... More

We spent the first 3 nights of our honeymoon in Kerala at Friday's Place in Puvar. As promised Mark was there to pick us up from the airport in Trivendrium at 4am and after a shortish drive the holiday began with a nighttime trip down an enchanting river to the eco-lodge. Both myself & my wife loved the place. I... More

If you want an alternative backwaters experience try Friday's Place near Kovalem. There are five cottages, all crafted by the owners and local craftsman from sustainable hardwood, and the Tsunami House, a sort of Noah's Ark sitting a top a tower with beautiful view of the forest canopy. Friday's Place can only be reached by boat, and if you blinked... More

If you've ever watched a David Attenborough documentary and wished you could be in it, this is the place for you! We stayed four nights in the Honeymoon Tower and ended up staying another night as we loved it so much. True, the place isn't huge, but that's the beauty of it, this is a place to sit, relax and...
