“Amazing place!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2007

This place is truly amazing, one of the best places we've ever stayed in in the whole world! To begin with it is incredibly pretty - all 6 villas are tastefully decorated and are by the lake. The farm is on an island in the beautiful backwaters of Kerala (you can only reach it by country boat from the opposite shore) - so you can relax completely without the hustle and bustle of a city/village right next to you. Then the service is amazing, Anu and her family take really good care of you! All the food is home cooked (and delicious!) by Mummy, Anu can recommend and organise trips for you, or you can enjoy various activities around the farm (cooking lessons, farm walk, etc).
Will definitely be back here, I really hope this place remains this charming and genuine!!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2006

Philipkutty's was without a doubt the highlight of our stay in India. I don't think any review can really do it justice. Anu and her family have created something that is really special. A warm welcoming atmosphere, a stunning location, and the most fantastic food you are ever likely to find in India. I will never forget sitting on our verandah by the edge of the river watching the sun rise. Boats looming out of the mist and gliding by, incredibly atmospheric music drifting across from the temple on the other side. It moved me to tears and is something I will never forget. I don't usually go back to the same place more than once as I there are so many places in the world I want to see, but beautiful Kerala is one I will return to, if only to revisit the incredible Philipkutty's.
