Welcomed by the owner as we arrived by boat at night to this beautiful homestead, we were instantly blown away by this beautiful and tranquil spot. Top-notch friendly service with excellent attention to detail. Wonderful room with a big comfortable bed and an outdoor shower. Fantastic home-cooked food served under the stars on the waterfront with the buzzing and chirping and the wildlife. A highlight of our trip for sure! Owen in 2013
I cannot recommend this highly enough. The staff are delightful and we felt so well looked after from the moment we were met by Tom on the boat. So much better than a houseboat. We canoed through tiny canals and cycled through remote villages and never met another tourist. Everyone was charming and kind. You should take the ferry back to Alleppey, it's a great journey. - July 2016
We had a wonderful stay in this old beautifully adapted house on the backwaters. Our interesting bedroom was clean and comfortable with fan and a/c. The bed was on a raised area previously part of a grain store. The bathroom was amazing, partly outside with really elegant design. The absolutely delicious meals were served outside by a very attentive Tom who also showed us round the beautiful garden with many spice trees and bushes. We saw the local coconut collectors climb the trees in the garden to trim and harvest. I spent a great hour having a personal cookery lesson, learning how to make 4 dishes while my husband enjoyed a really excellent Ayurvedic massage.
We arrived and left by kayak and really loved everything about this home stay, from the lovely friendly owners, the staff, the gardens, the meals, the nutmeg welcoming drink. There was nothing we didn't love about this peaceful and beautiful place. Our stay was just too short. - June 2016 as family

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.
