We chose to stay at The Indian Summer House as part of our honeymoon trip to Kerala in January 2020. From the moment we were in contact with Don we knew we were in for a treat. He had lots of advice on Kerala and helped us finalise our itinerary and arrange a driver (Biju ) for part of our stay. The Indian Summer house is an oasis in the middle of Kerala and is everything we could have dreamed for as part of our honeymoon. All of the staff were super friendly, the accomodation is beautiful and the food cooked by chef Raj is to die for. We stayed at a 5 star resort in the maldives at the end of the trip and we both said how the ISH offered better service and exclusivity. It is a must if you are visiting Kerala! We would love to return one day and think it would be a great place to stay with family or a group of friends.

So nice to hear from you Heidi and I am glad we were able to be part of your honeymoon experience. We have recently started hosting small weddings and zoom cooking classes to keep us busy. Kerala has handled Covid remarkably well and we look forward to welcoming guests back when it's safe to travel again. Wishing you both a lovely future together and thankyou so much for the review it is much appreciated. Don

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.

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
