I had the most exquisite stay at Indian Summer House for the ISH Writer's Retreat. One thing that makes the hotel so special is it manages to be both intimate, boutique and spectacularly grand at the same time. I suppose if Raffles had only 4 rooms then it would probably want to look like Indian Summer House. The hotel is built around a lovely garden which is home to exotic birds, butterflies, the occasional squirrel, stone-carvings and water features. It’s a real privilege to wake-up to this view and the perfect setting for yoga classes every morning. I’ve been coming to India my whole life and never would I dream of drinking water straight from the tap. I don’t know how they manage it but not only do they have a great filtration process, everything is eco-friendly and

The Indian Summer house is a perfectly-sized wonder of architecture and beauty. Built by a well-known architect as a family home, it blossomed into a special boutique hotel with 6 large rooms with en-suite bathrooms placed around a courtyard garden. The pool is sunk into stone surround with clumps of palm trees and flowering shrubs attracting butterflies and birds. The rooms are large, spacious, airy and stylish with air-con, fans and stylish furnishings. The menu is extensive, delicious, nourishing and created with love. Meeting Don the owner and his staff was a joy. They made us feel like family and welcomed us to join local festivities taking place. The opportunity to see and experience the local arts, crafts, culture and places of interest was on offer, as were spa

This special boutique hotel is more like a luxurious family home with lovely wooden roofing over the covered areas, a spacious feel and beautifully appointed modern rooms. The staff were so very friendly and Don, the owner, made us feel like part of the family. The food cooked by Raj was sensational. The Summer House driver, Bijou, took us on a great tour of Kochi which has a fascinating history and we were escorted on a local rural walking tour. Absolutely perfect! Our full itinerary was as follows: *. Enjoyed a welcome drink and Jasmine flower lay on arrival and a tour of the property and some insight into the Made Wijaya construction, design and architecture and how it relates to Kerala and the tropics * Ayurveda spa treatments from Riju and Leela from Arshana. *

My husband and I travelled to ISH in August for a few days R&R with friends. From the warm reception on our arrival to the fond farewell as we left, we felt genuinely welcome and at home. We knew immediately it was the right place for us. The property is an oasis of calm and serenity, comprising 4 spacious villas (we loved the outdoor showers) set on 3 sides of an expansive courtyard garden, the remaining side housing the indoor/outdoor dining and entertaining area. Discretely tucked away is a beautiful pool and sitting out area. The charming original house, which sits within the grounds, houses a boutique gym and Ayurvedic spa room. Grand yet intimate, we had the feeling of staying in the home of a friend rather than in paid accommodation. Having shared our interests

Thanks so much for the review and I hope the "bootcamp" in our gym left you feeling energised for your next adventure. The monsoon is my favourite time of year in Kerala and I am so glad you enjoyed it. Kind regards Don

Indian Summer House is a beautiful, large house that makes you feel you are away from everything. The experience surpassed all expectations with fabulous facilities; a huge pool that you could spend all day in, a spa, a gym and beautiful bedrooms and living rooms. The gardens and house are spectacular and the history of the house tells a family story that goes back many decades. We felt so spoiled by the amazing staff - Rajesh, Albin, Bhindi and Biju all looked after us so well and catered for our every need. We had massages that were the best we'd had in India and had our own yoga instructor every morning. The host, Don, is extremely responsive and anything we asked for was delivered. Probably the best holiday ever.
