My husband and I had been travelling around India for nearly three weeks and were absolutely exhausted. This final stay before flying back to the UK was just perfect. We read, were taken up the backwater in a punt every evening to see the sunset, visited a local village, watched all the houseboats and fishermen ply up and down the... More

We really liked the stay at this farm house. This is one of the best stay in a resort. Hospitality should be learned from the owners of this farm. Really great service and traditional items from kitchen. An amazing place to taste Kerala dishes...

We stayed at Philipkutty's for 3 nights and what an experience it was. Right from the moment we arrived, we were looked after so well. The villa was tastefully furnished, well maintained & retained the typical architecture of Kerala. Al fresco breakfast, lunch & dinner was the norm. The food was amazing - I'm of Kerala/Tamilnadu origin & I can... More

Idyllic farm on a man made island in the Kumarakom lake. Anu and her family run this upmarket homestay with 6 perfect traditional villas, excellent home cooked meals and lots of kindness. We enjoyed hiring small boats and rowing around in the lake and then come back to sumptuous authentic Kerala meals . Highly recommended.

Easily the best place we stayed at in Kerala. Philip Kutty's farm is a haven of peace and relaxation. The property is built on an island (need to get there by boat) and the six villas are built traditional style. We were two families travelling together, so we had a set of two villas with a large living room adjoining.... More

We stayed as a couple for 4 nights in April 2016. We only had an idea by reading TA what to expect. Cottages are great, superbly fitted out with quality fittings, and Mummy and Annu made us feel very welome. Meals are taken around a large round table in a seperate dining area from the main house. They are just... More

Excellent rooms, in a lovely setting. Food excellent and nice to sit with a communal group of people and hear stories from their trip. Sunset boat ride a must and Farm walk worth while. Only draw back is there is little else to do, so 1 night probably enough.

What others have said on this site probably says it all. Because of the unusually intense heat in Kerala this summer, we would not advise visiting in April, but we had no choice. So the beautifully appointed rooms with their AC were invaluable. We were the only guests (end of season), but Anu and her family made us feel welcome... More
