Thank you to Claus and his wife to make my stay in Kumily one of the best I had in Kerala. Very clean and spacious room with hot water, quiet and great breakfast. I really enjoyed the garden as well, flowers, birds and monkeys sometimes... Kumily is an interesting place to visit and Claus garden is the place to stay... More

Our stay at Clause gardens was wonderful. We stayed for 12 nights. We felt peaceful, relaxed and welcomed by clause and Omana. The rooms are spacious, clean and we always had hot water when we wanted it. The breakfast s were a highlight with freshly brewed coffee, home made bread, home made peanut butter, date syrup and a medley of... More

We had a great stay at claus garden. Mr. Claus & Omna are great hosts. We booked our rooms well in advance without any advance payment and he reserved the rooms for us. We all liked the aesthetically designed rooms, Its all simple but elegant. Separate kitchen facility is there if you wanna cook your own food with very nominal... More

Five star breakfasts start the day, lovely big spacious clean rooms, really friendly people who are always ready to answer your questions and help you with onward travel. Great atmosphere and the sort of place you decide to spend an extra few days. We had lovely walks and the highlight for us was to ride an elephant

My girlfriend and I loved this place. Simply put, it felt like a home away from home. It is also nice in that it is on a hill isolated from the traffic noises from town. A beautiful place to stay, and loved the homemade peanut butter, jam and coffee! Recommended without a second's thought.

It was a toss up between the Lonely Planet suggestions for Kumily (aka Thekkady, Periyar) and I'm glad I decided on Claus' place. Seeing the lovely room I was put in and how peaceful it felt there I immediately decided to stay for two nights instead of one. Off road parking for my motorbike was a plus as well. I... More

We tried to stay at a place nearby, which turned out to be full. By coincidence we drove past Claus Gardens, and Claus stuck his head over the gate and invited us in to see the place. Thank god he did, as it turned out to be one of the best places we stayed on our entire trip! The bedroom... More

We stayed there for three nights on January 2012. This a special place to stay. It is a big well maintained house runned by Claus and his wife, with a tropical garden, located outside of the noisy main streets of Kummily in a quite neighborhood. The garden is something like a small plantation. They have pepper, coffee, papaya, jackfruits, passion... More
