“Warmest welcomes and delicious home cooked food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We stayed with Stanley and Jasmin for two nights either side of a 3 day tour with Stanley's company. They couldn't have been friendlier and more helpful. Stanley is great to chat to and Jasmin is an incredible cook. I can highly recommend you staying here when in Kochi. It also helps keep you away from the ever growing tourist traps.

Cooking class was great! Did it with 3 friends and we all had a great time and the food was amazing! And it was great to have the recipes written down to take away. Would definitely recommend! We also did a day tour with Stanley Wilson day tours which was also great. Thanks again!

We stayed three days at Jasmine Villa by myself and my wife and the great surprise was we never felt we both are long long away from our home, because the surrounding of Jasmine villa always spreading a homely feeling atmosphere. Especially Jasmin's cooking is amazing and we had lots of different tasty dishes and my wife took the opportunity to learn some special preparations by cooking with Jasmine. Really it was great time we both spent at Jasmine villa with Stanley and Jasmine. We are waiting for an opportunity to visit again.

Room Tip: Calm and quite place. Go for the room with balcony

I was very interested in Kerala cuisine.
I learned it from Jasmin twice a day.
It was great experience to me.
She is good at cooking very much.

I miss her cooking!!!

Someday I want to go back to Jasmin Villa again.

We finished our trip to India with a two day stay at The Jasmin Villa and had a wonderful time. The villa is very clean and a 20 minute walk into Cochin, 2 minutes by Tuk Tuk. We had a cooking class with Jasmin from 6pm until 8.30pm and learnt many Keralan recipies. We were encouraged to participate in the class which helped with the learning and were given all the recipies to take away. At the end of the class we sat down to enjoy the excellent meal which Jasmin had prepared. I would suggest booking an AC room.

Room Tip: Best to book an AC room.
