We stayed for two nights and the experience was fantastic from the lunch on arrival to the cooking lesson on the second day were we learnt how to cook some amazing dishes which we then had for dinner accompanied by some addition from host and cookery teacher Faiza. The accomadtion is an old colonial house which is like a living museum and had not been spoilt by uneccesarry modernisation. We were taken to the market in the morning by Alan to get the fish and other ingredients for the meal we would be learning to cook which was an amazing Experiance. Later that day Alan took us to see a ceromany being carried out at a temple and we were made to feel more than welcome. Faiza is a very accomplished chef and her cookbook is a must for anyone who enjoyes trying there hand traditional…
We stayed a night only at this place although somewhat peaceful and idyllic in many ways the house was very old fashion and could do with a big facelift. The lady of the house was away which was a pity as I believe that her cuisine is famous but having said that the cook there was fantastic and the dinner and breakfast were superb to say the least. If you want really good food and home cooked then this is place if you don't mind it being quite old.
A homestay is not a hotel and is much more than just somewhere to sleep. We had a fantastic time staying at Ayesha Manila and really benefitted from from the personal interaction we had from our hosts. We were warmly welcomed by Moosa and his wife Faiza who with their staff (especially Alan) ensured that we had opportunity to both see and experience local culture and sights of interest. Our room was a suite, it was large and comfortable with everything we needed. The food that was served was outstanding and Faiza ensured that it was all too our liking, it was even more special when we went with Moosa to the market to purchase the fresh ingredients. We felt thoroughly spoilt and looked after during our stay and would gladly return.
We came here specifically to do a cookery course and so were disappointed to discover that Faiza was away at a family event. Apparently, Moosa had not be told by our travel company that we wanted to do a course so make sure you check first! We were given a demonstration, at no extra cost but a somewhat nervous chef and the very lovely Babish and ever helpful Alan. Moosa runs his homestay as a business, there is no doubt! There is a fixed programme and Alan ensures you get from a to b. He is worth making an effort with as you can get a lot of great information and insight from him. We did do the market, Theyyam, hand loom and beedi factory. All interesting but definitely part of the planned programme, if you just want to hang out then it might be difficult. Its a good base for…
Staying here is an experience that you need to (and should) embrace. As other reviews, I'm sure, have said - it's not a 5* hotel with all the mod cons. But that's not what it's all about. Staying with Mr Moosa, Faiza and their team is about getting an insight into cuisine of the highest possible standard and about exploring a town where you might find you're the only visitors at that time. Alan ("Mr Fixit") will give you a tour of his personal highlights and will make any other additional arrangements that you might require with efficiency and charm. Yes, Moosa likes to arrange things but go with it - you won't be disappointed!
The old style building, large rooms, big bathrooms all add to make this a great location. The dinner was excellent and since we had another couple traveling with us, enough variety was provided in the food. Unfortunately, the three adults all developed a fairly bad reaction to the food which marred the otherwise pleasant stay.
From reviews I have read many people love this place. We were unfortunate to arrive just as a party official had been hacked to death close by resulting in a 24 hour total shut down which affected all of Kerala. So no market or cigarette factory visits but a good walk led by lovely but quiet guide (Alan?) around the area taking in the empty streets where the market usually is, 4 places of worship, the fort and a Theyyam (apologies for spelling) which was fascinating. We were also unfortunate in that Moussa was not there - he had left early for a prior engagement due to the strike. The misfortune continued .... The pool was not clean. The wifi was not working. The room safe (a relief to see after the comments made about cash going missing) did not work. Mosquito nets were missing…
The rooms were luxurious and comfortable, the bathrooms big and clean, the service excellent, the food was to die for, and the host and hostess were very attentive and wonderful people. My family and I had a fantastic time. The view was breathtaking.
Good rooms, nice view, Comfortable stay, great hospitality.... Located at the heart of the town.. Away from the busy streets... Very delightful experience must say.. One of the best places to stay in and around Thalassery
After leaving a beautiful 5 star hotel, we did take a little while to adjust to Aisha Manzil!! Beautiful food and cookery class was so enjoyable. I did find the area to be very noisy and busy, not what we really wanted for our tour of India.
