Well I am a doctor and so is my wife who is compleating her fellowship. We dont get much time to be together since the last 2 years, due to our careers. Well this christmas we desided to take a week off the record with our son (Eric) in a quiet place.
We really wanted it to be peaceful, beautiful, refreshing and without the disturbance of a busy place. I searched the net for a cool place and found this one. The images looked great and the email sounded great. Knowing a little about kerala – I was a skeptical at first, and since I could not find bookings in many other places decided to try my luck. They committed to pick me up from cochin airport and promised me a great stay.
To tell you the truth, this place was beyond great. Its homely and all skepticism vanished the moment I landed there. It was truly homely, the food was great, and the lush green paddy fields right behind is a sight to see. If nothing else just sipping a coffee and looking out to the paddy fields on one side and the cool backwaters on the other could make your day. Well the traditional home cooked meals are one that you would really enjoy. There is plenty of space and the furnishing are pure antique. I was pretty surprised to find the toilets were neat and perfect.
The backwater house boat rides, the out door badminton and the lawns are fantastic. I should say the ayurveda (SPA) was fabulous. There are different types of treatments available. One thing I have suggested is the swimming pool well it’s a little small, but I have been told they are getting a big one by march. Well if that’s in too then I would say that’s my kind of a holiday. The backwaters of pulinkunnu, would give Venice a run for its money. Well they are open and a sight to see specially in the mornings and the evenings.
All in all a great place to chill out and relax, well thank you Maria I had a wonderful time and hope, I could get some place the next time around, the way I see it it might be hard to get in on short notice again.
All the best – and see you next December.
