Karma Kerala Hotels Collection

We like to think that the Karma Kerala Hotel collection which also includes guesthouses, homestays and resorts is the most comprehensive and exhaustive anywhere on the web. Unlike most such directories we have actually slogged around all the properties, slept in as many as we can and generally nosed around to see what's good, bad and different.

You can contact us for advice or ask us to arrange things for you. We have some more advice on hotel booking for you, lower down the page.

Booking Rates for Kerala Hotels

Hotel rooms in Kerala generally are priced per room per night with small savings for single persons and supplements for extra beds or children. Young children generally travel free.

A Bird in the Hand...

Reservations staff often seem to operate on the principle of the bird in the hand is worth more than a bird in the bush. This means that if you reserve rooms without any payment, your reservation is likely to get bounced off if a better offer comes into them. Likewise, without any form of deposit the booking may be noted on paper but not in the system. This can and does lead to some anxious moments when you arrive and discover that they know nothing about you at all!

Hotel Industry Jargon Explained

Hotels like to bemuse customers with curious acronyms for their different offers. Here below, these secret acronyms are revealed:

CP = Continental Plan - only breakfast included

MAP = Modified american plan - breakfast, either lunch or dinner included

AP = American Plan - all three meals included

Online Booking Opportunities

More and more Kerala hotels offer online booking directly or through 3rd parties like Bookings.com, or Make My Trip, etc. This is just like the rest of the world; however, Indian hoteliers being a wily bunch don't offer rooms during better season and also treat those customers as third class citizens which means that they may or may not honour bookings depending on time of day, cycle of the month or simply their absence from the property when you arrive. They also do see why these lazy online geeks should get the best rates, so frequently their online published rates are really quite poor. Beware.

Why Prebook My Kerala Hotel anyway?

Frequently, travellers feel that it is better to hang around and see what comes up, which is fair enough. If you have a lot of time on your hands, that is quite fun, but if this is your precious two week holiday, then spending your stay feverishly trying to find your next abode feels like an awful waste of time. Worst of all, the best is gone so you end up staying in places you would not have chosen given the choice. 

Kerala Hotel Style Explained

Like every destination, Kerala has its own indigenous accommodation styles worth being aware of
