HI Nisha, thank you so much and so glad you and your 30 closest friends were able to enjoy an evening with us. The team really enjoyed working with you to create a fun evening. The poolside setting was perfect! Looking forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind regards Don and all the team.

The property is absolutely divine; luxurious large villas with private outside showers, such craftsmanship, glorious gardens and a beautiful large pool. But even more so, the service from Raj, Albin and the team on the ground was exceptional, so accessible and accomodating and nothing was too much trouble. It was so special and Don and the team were fantastic helping us navigate through this difficult time as we were in Kerala in the lead up to mid March 2020. Raj is an exceptional talented chef - the food was amazing. It was a tranquil haven at a very difficult time and we were sorry we had to leave after only two nights. We will certainly be back.

Thankyou so much for the review. COVID-19 certainly created some challenges however through early planning, staff training and awareness we are glad we were able to provide you with a great experience even though sadly cut short. We look forward to welcoming you back and showing you more of the Kerala we love so much. Kind regards Don

We arrived at Indian Summer House late at night night and our host Don was there to welcome us with a jasmine flower lay and a welcome drink. As soon as we entered we knew that we were going to have a lovely relaxing stay. It felt so tranquil, from the tropical gardens being softy lit, to the ornate architecture. Our very spacious room had everything we needed including an indoor and outdoor shower.
We started each morning with Yoga and as Yoga is new to us we found our instructor Riju to be the perfect teacher.
Our week at Indian Summer House was a great mix of relaxation and adventures. A couple of our adventures included a trip to the Tea Plantations (Munnar) and Fort Kochi. Both trips were so beautiful and amazing. Our driver Bju who quickly became our friend was so knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble for him. One day after a local tour to taste some Toddy and to see how it is tapped from the palm trees, Biju even took us for a visit to his home.
Another highlight for us was a trip across the river in a canoe and then walking through different tapioca, rubber and banana plantations. We finished this off with afternoon tea with Mohanan at his traditional Tea Shop. The tea was the best tea I’ve ever tried and the local delicacies were delicious!
During our week we also had a few days of relaxation at
Indian Summer House. This included days by the pool which is surrounded by tropical gardens, massages and just having some peaceful time in different secluded areas of the property.
Each day of our stay we would look forward to breakfast lunch and dinner. Raj is an amazing chef and so happy to cater for anything we asked for. His different suggestions for meals over the week were spot on and after each meal we would look forward to having a chat with him.
On our departure I felt like we were saying goodbye to our new friends. Everyone was so warm and friendly.
We look forward to seeing you all again next time we visit the beautiful Indian Summer House.

Your week with us gave you enough time to enjoy the property and the community but also to explore Kerala on your day trips! A perfect combination of relaxation, exploration and experiences. We hope to see you back in the future. Kind regards Don

We’re flying back to the U.K. tomorrow and it’ll be such a wrench leaving this beautiful place. It’s our second time at ISH and it won’t be our last.

Staying here is like visiting friends.....if your friends live in five star luxury with their own cook (ask Rajesh to make you a mutton biriani, best I’ve ever tasted); pristine rooms (thank you Sidhu, you are the quiet hero of the place); a yoga teacher who salutes the sun with you before breakfast; massage facilities (try the hot oil dripped onto your brow, it’s so trippy!); huge gardens and a fab deep pool. Oh and don’t forget the Bollywood Dance lesson, didn’t want that to end.

This time, the owners Don and Mini were onsite. Nothing is too much of a bother, they really welcomed us into their amazing home. What a special couple.

See you next year, India Summer House

What a stunning place. We had a wonderful visit and wished that we had booked for longer. The pool was beautiful .....large, just the right temperature, delightful secluded setting and we were entirely left undisturbed until we needed something. The food was cooked as we requested and all the staff were extremely helpful. We enjoyed our visit to the market and the canoe across the river to the tea house
The story of the building, and of Mini and her family who lived here before this beautiful place was built, is fascinating . Worth a visit to look at the architecture alone plus the use that was made of local craftsmanship. Great attention to detail about everything from the moment we arrived.
Did I say how lovely the pool was!
We tried the yoga too. Great

The pool is a beautiful feature and very welcome after a day out travelling and touring. We are so glad we have inspired you to introduce yoga into your home routine. I hope the youtube videos help. It was unfortunate that you couldn't stay for longer. Ideally 3 nights here is a minimum to enjoy all that Indian Summer House has to offer. Kind regards Don and the team here
