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

Indian Summer House was our third and best hotel in Kerala! On our arrival we were welcomed by all members of staff and treat to a wonderful flower garland which made us all feel very special. The accommodation was first class with inside and outside shower facilities. Air con and fans made the rooms very comfortable. The sleeping table tennis equipment was brought into action with assistance from the staff and formed a good leisure activity during our quiet times. The trip to the tea shop in the Ambassador was very pleasant and Leo chose the seat that Don from the hotel preferred! Mohanan impressed with his production of Chai and the tit bits to accompany it particularly liked were the banana fritters! We felt special in our chauffeur driven Ambassador. The pool was the

After nearly three weeks of travelling around Southern India we finally arrived at our 11th & final place before catching the plane home from Cochin the next day. All we needed at this stage was a quiet, relaxing place to recuperate and the Indian Summer House was absolutely the perfect hotel to do this. Right from the start with the warm welcome we received from Don, Albin and Rajesh, we knew we were in the right place. The architecture is quite unique and very beautiful,with lots of tasteful features, lovely grounds and a fantastic pool. Our room was luxurious with a great outdoor rain water shower and our own lovely terrace to enjoy. After exploring the grounds and a superb lunch made by Rajesh, we spent the afternoon by the pool before joining Don for an early evening

What a beautiful tastefully decorated Indian Summer House. Thank you Don, Albin, Rajesh, Bindu and all garden and security staff for taking such good care of us. The place is like a little paradise! We loved the outdoor shower and the pool very much. We liked our little tour through the village, crossing the river by little wooden boat. The highlight was having tea with Mohanan at his traditional Tea Shop enjoying local delicacies with chai (pazham pori, bananas, tapioca chips and pappada vada). Great experience!

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
