“Gods own home in Gods own country!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

Our stay at Malakkarethu House was an awesome experience!! The family and owners were very warm and freindly and took care of us as family. The property is a very pleasant and beautiful and is surrounded by a lush green garden right on the river. The rooms are airy, clean with clean beds, linen and towels. The house is such situated that it is very near all amenities and yet is very quiet.
The food is excellent and one is well adviced that when at Malakkarethu house eat food at home always and not outside!!
The staff was very friendly and caring and went out of the way to ensure we had a good stay. We were with 2 boisterous kids and they enjoyed the stay at the place so much that they want to return again soon! Which we shall!!

Room Tip: All rooms are nice, but first foor rooms are quiter and give a good view of the river

It was an awesome experience staying at your place. The classic rooms, calm and pleasant surroundings, amazing facilities with sumptuous food lingers in our heart evergreen. They have clean and hygienic bathrooms, neatly made beds and tidy towels and bedsheets to make our stay more comfortable. More than the rooms the hospitality by the people there was unforgettable. 'Thanks' would be a small word to show our gratitude for all their love and care showed on us and especially on our kids. I would strongly recommend this place as a 'perfect one' even for kids and old-aged. Special thanks for the freedom they gave us in their kitchen to cook ourselves. The view from each room was mind-blowing. It was a beautiful stay we have ever had.

My stay at the Malakkarethu house was a wonderful experience.
I have been welcomed warmheartedly by this hospitable and gentle family. The house has a pleasant feel and is situated in a lovely, cool garden which offers the best view on the river. My room was beautiful, clean and quiet, the food was lovely, the coconuts were a pleasure, the hosts were very friendly. I have felt really well taken care of. Certainly highly recommended for singles and families.

We stayed at the Malakkarethu house in September this year. The stay was extremely comfortable and warm. We were offered a room on the first floor of the property with outstanding view of the river. The room was large, clean an comfortable with all facilities like running hot water, clean linen and towels. The staff was warm and friendly and offered us traditional Keralan style food. A special thanks to the owners Mr Pillai and Dr Sujatha who put in all the effort to make our stay extremely comfortable. The rooms are reasonably priced and I would highly recommend this property to the visitors.
