Philipkutty's Farm

Kottayam |

Looking through the palm trees that hang over the calm Keralan backwaters, Philipkutty’s farm combines villa accomodation with a welcoming homestay feel.

A handful of villas sit along the shoreline, each encircled by a verandah where you can sit in the shade and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Inside, the space is open and airy, with comfy wooden beds and armchairs under warm lamplight. The bathrooms are simple, clean and spacious.

This resort’s key feature is the connection you feel to the host family, who are always on hand to greet and chat with their guests, give tours of the farm and, of course, serve up delicious home-cooked meals to share around the family table.

Head out onto the world famous Keralan backwaters to explore the winding waterways, visit riverside villages and temples, and slow the pace right down with little fishing. Back at the farm, you can take a yoga class, curl up with a book or two, or simply sit by the riverside soaking up the serenity.

We Say
A warm welcome and a beautiful location - an ideal alternative to a houseboat stay.
