Outstanding hospitality
15 recent guests complimented Anilal for outstanding hospitality.

The Cozy cottages are built amidst the majestic trees like nutmeg, cloves, coconut trees, jack trees, bread fruit trees, Arecanut, Cocoa etc. The Cottages are thatched with braided coconut palm leaves to obtain a natural cooling effect. The interior is uniquely fashioned. As the walls of the cottages are built with palm tree planks the rooms are never hot. Cottages are furnished with all essential interiors with attached bathroom suitable for a couple.

Lovely location, great host. We booked the budget room, I would book the upgraded room next time. The owner gave us a little tour around his farm, showing us what he is growing, which was great, walked away with bags of homegrown nutmeg and mace. Lovely family.

Anilal and his family are such lovely people but I have to be honest while describing the place as I rely heavily on people’s reviews when booking a place. It’s located by the Vembanad lake and they even have a canal going by the cottages. The water is still so it smells and has…
