Deep in the romantic backwaters of India
Experience a different side to India in the serene and peaceful backwaters whilst arriving in style by boat
This is the place to experience country life on the banks of Kerala’s backwaters. Philip Kutty’s Farm is a collection of independent waterfront villas on a farm island. Despite being a family-run homestay, you have all the privacy and comfort you would expect in a hotel.
You arrive by boat on the island, a working farm producing organic coconuts, bananas, fruits and vegetables. Villas are spacious with wooden ceilings and rustic clay tile floors, with plenty of doors and windows for circulation of fresh air and excellent views of the surroundings. You’re not cut off from nature but living as one with it. Watch the fireflies at night. Each room has WiFi access, a fridge, and tea and coffee making facilities.
Meal times are lavish affairs as you might expect from life on a farm, with home-cooked local cuisine involving lots of fish, duck and chicken (although vegetarian options are available). Ask for a cooking class! Meals are served either in the family dining room or in a thatched pavilion on stilts overlooking the backwaters.
