KarmaKerala Review of Ayisha Manzil
Ayisha Manzil is a colonial style bungalow with a magnificent sea view. Mr. Moosa and his wife Faiza runs this place as a homestay. And they have achieved well deserved international recognition for the high standard of their Malabari Muslim cuisine.

How Karma Kerala Hotels Rates WorkThe price of hotel rooms changes from day to day and season to season so we check for each customer to see what the best rate will be depending on their requirement, length of stay and so on. If you want a wonderful stay, why not find our what we can do for you.
What does Cheapest MeanPeople assume that the cheapest rates apply to all rooms so they book the cheapest! But, they are missing a trick on this: hotels have great rooms and rooms on the wrong side of the tracks and so they offer out the low quality rooms to online portals who don't care about quality, just the price of the room. We, on the other hand, tend to focus on quality so we ask for specific rooms that may be more expensive but damn, they are much better too!
Never Knowingly Beaten on PriceWe know people are nervous and ask themselves: can this be true? So we make an offer to you: if you can find the room cheaper, we will match your quote. That means you have nothing to worry about and you get the best local advice.
