We spent two nights with the owners of this idyllic paradise set in a rubber plantation in Kerala. Our hosts were perfect in their hospitality and friendliness. We were treated to wonderful food throughout served and cooked by their chef of 35 years. An abundance of Keralan dishes which excited the pallette and tingled the taste buds. All meals were...

This was truly a homestay. We ate with our host and had great conversation about Indian culture, agriculture and politics. Both very enjoyable and instructive. Our hostess, while not eating with us - this seems to be cultural - joined us for coffee and conversation after the meals. I have to say that they were both friendly, intelligent and charming...

After nearly three weeks of staying in Keralan homestays we finally felt as if we had a real homestay experience. You couldn't have asked for more hospitable or charming hosts where, from the moment of our arrival, we were made to feel like honoured guests. The house itself lies in the middle of the family's rubber plantation and is a...

We stayed two nights at Kalketty Homestay set in the midst of an extensive rubber plantation with Kurian and Anuja, who were such very charming, informative and hospitable hosts. We had a wonderful bedroom which was superb, large and most comfortable in a separate building to the main house in which we ate our quite delicious home cooked Keralan food,...

Nothing can quite describe how totally perfect was our 3 night stay with Kuriam and Anuja. Our food was delicious, I think Anuja was on a quest to get us to experience every Keralan dish she had ever had. The plantation tour and the latex weighing area was most interesting. We had booked a days cycle tour, very worthwhile, and...

Our stay at Kalaketty turned out to be the highlight of our holiday in India. The accommodation is fabulous and our hosts, Paul Vincent Kurian and his wife Anuja, are most gracious and welcoming. The food is wonderful and we really could not have been better looked after. We had three nights there and we both agreed we could have...

This time we stayed for three nights and Kurian and Anuja are the most delightful hosts. As in previous reviews the food is superb. We again walked with Kurian around part of his estate, saw the local bee keeper and tasted his wonderful honey, took a tuk tuk ride around the local village and visited the nearby Benedictine school. If...

We recently experienced a two night stay in this beautiful home. Our hosts made us feel so welcome; their kindness, thoughtfulness and hospitality were evident throughout our stay. Whilst there we learnt about Kerala's architecture, plantations and tasted its delicious food. Anuja is an outstanding cook and her meals are presented beautifully; each dish was a subtle delight. We were...

I am glad that I am not staying more than two days as I would come away far bigger than I am now. Anuja and Kurian are great hosts and the food is superb with lots of Keralan dishes to try. Breakfast this morning was lovely with string hoppers, local honey, steamed bananas, and tapioca with a light chili sambal,...

Shortly after arriving at Kalaketty we were taken for a tour of the property and our gracious host Mr Kurian who explained the workings of a rubber plantation. Then the heavens opened but that did not deter us as the atmosphere is amazing. We had the best experience staying in one of the two beautifully appointed rooms (almost apartment The...
