Indian Summer House
Reviewed 11 November 2017

I stayed at The Indian Summerhouse for a week to relax and recharge my batteries. The room is enormous and the bathroom huge with shower both inside and outside in the private courtyard. There is nothing missing here with every possible luxury taken care of.The staff is friendly and helpful to the extreme and having Don the host around to arrange any excursion and giving an insight into life around here you reach a whole new level of calm. And then there is Raj the chef who tailors your food experience to your wishes. Being a novice to Indian cuisine I am now much more comfortable and it is nice having western food when you so desire. This is a must for the bucket list.

Room Tip: Not necessary as they are all single level villas protected by a wall all the way around the propert...

This was my first trip to India and what an experience! Our hosts Mini and Don are terrific with everything thought of right down to a very well laid out Itinerary - enjoying the cultural highlights such as trips to Fort Kochi, Mannar tea plantation, Folklore Museum, temples, bird sanctuary and the every busy markets but in all that there is plenty of quite time for yoga, a swim (in a huge pool) and reading in the beautifully set out lounges dotted around the Indian Summer House. The staff are amazing and so very helpful and friendly, Rajesh is an amazing chef, Albin the property manager, Vindoo and Riju and our drivers were lovely. The tranquil gardens and meeting Mini's extended family and friends is also a delight. Thank you so much for a wondering experience and look forward to the next visit.

Room Tip: Whichever room you are allocated will be heavenly!I

On my first trip to India, I recently stayed at The Indian Summer House with my partner for one week. We had the most delightful stay, welcomed with a drink + traditional Jasmine flower lei. The Indian Summer House is an absolute oasis and luxurious home away from home, located in a quiet area of Muvattupuzha, near Cochin. Built over the period of 5 years under the renowned Balinese architect Made Wijaya, it’s easy to see that every inch of the property has been thoughtfully designed, handcrafted, and influenced by both Balinese + local Kerala architectural styles.

We loved being able to explore the local Muvattupuzha area and its temples, Fort Cochin and it’s shops and cafes, kickback on a luxury houseboat cruise and experience the wonderful art of sari shopping. Retreating back to the Indian Summer House at the end of a big day to an awaiting fresh coconut and outdoor garden shower was absolutely magical - a real escape. We enjoyed daily morning yoga, having the entire pool to ourselves and a private traditional dance evening. The food served at the Indian Summer House was the best that we ate on our entire month long holiday in India. The villas + bedding were totally luxurious - all the little luxuries one could need. The Indian Summer House staff were so very hospitable, friendly and attentive to every need. The Chef Raj will ensure the team cater to all of your food requirements and he speaks fluent English. Communication with management was a breeze. Must do - traditional Ayurveda Indian massage at the property's lovely spa. Highly recommend the Indian Summer House as your very first destination when travelling to India, to ease into the Indian way of life. You won’t be disappointed!!!

Room Tip: Main villa is amazing!

India is a chaotic place, that's one of the reasons I love to visit. But at the end of the day you want an oasis to stay where you can retreat and engergise to launch yourself back in. Indian Summer House provided the perfect combination of relaxation and cultural immersion. My group of friends and I alternated one day of relaxing by the pool/having spa treatments/ exploring the local town with getting out and exploring Fort Kochi and cruising on a houseboat in the Kerala backwaters. Our host Don organised every detail and made sure we were well looked after at all times. In the lead up to our stay the communication was excellent and I arrived excited for what was to come. It was even better than I hoped for! Our chef Raj seemed to read our minds to know exactly what food to prepare whether we were feeling adventurous or wanting something familiar. He even came with us on our houseboat to make sure the local staff looked after us. The property itself is amazing! Beautiful architecture and gorgeous landscaped gardens. You can tell that a lot of thought and care has gone into its creation.

If you are looking for the perfect place to relax and a great base to explore Kerala, this is it!
