“Just like heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2011

Just the list of pleasures that you will enjoy there : a vast and comfortable accommodation in an authentic XIXth century house beautifully preserved, ayurvedic massages in your own private room, bicycle ride through the back waters to reach Cherai beach, yoga lessons, maybe a visit to Fort Cochin if you wish, great cooking by Tanga, humorous conversations with Marco, nice people who will do everything to make your stay enjoyable. I've been there three times. It's all included. The taxi will pick you at the airport. Don't worry. Be happy.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2010

It is such a kind of place you can straight call it your home just by knocking on the door at 5am... it is like visiting family in India. You are so welcome and you are the only guest as they have just one room.
There is Marc known as Marco, the owner who knows before you even thought about it what you may need... so true, not joking! It is so great! You also have his Indian family, grandpa, father, mother and son, giving you their great warm Tamil hospitality. They will cook you the best Kerala food with good fresh products. Gambas were so great! Eating with hands on a banana leave as plate... funny experience.
The perfect place to spend honeymoon, having romantic moments or just relax but also to rebuild your vital energy as you get every day a profesional Ayurvedic massage of 1,5 hour. You can also call a private Yoga teacher.
A rickshaw can bring you to a nice small little sandy beach nicer than Cherai, to bath, walk alone along, watch sunset or sometime during monsoon surf little beach breaks as I did.. surfing empty small waves in such a peaceful area harmonized with nature and people.
Marc can teach you so many things about India, life and more but also can help you to plan your trip further.
It is such a livable place, so great furnished and decorate in old Kerala style, a home where you forget everything, the time and wish you'd never leave...
The ultimate experience, one of the best place I've ever staid, and I've visited many places during my short life!
A place which would stay for ever in your heart, offering you so much positive energy, and great karma.
You come back to real home full of great memories and with a big smile; but also mind and heart full of happiness.
Merci beaucoup, thanks you, terimakasih pa

La dame Rouge....

Marc is a very welcoming personn and try to do his best for his guests....
La dame Rouge is just offering you all you could expect from a luxury hotel...
The little diference is that here, you're the only guests...and you're the king !!!
Everything is included in the price....food, accomodation(A house for 2 people), massages (every day in our private massage room°.
As Marc is french (but staying in India for years°it's very confortable to be able to speak and exchanhe in French with him.
I will higly recomand "La Dame Rouge"
