All the hotels we work with in India are professionally run and have excellent customer feedback. However, we do want to gently remind guests that Kerala is India and service tends to be slower and of a different standard to what one would expect in Europe or the USA. The climate in Kerala is also tropical, which means hotels have to contend with extreme conditions, such as humidity, monsoons and high temperatures. While your comfort is paramount, we do ask that you keep in mind that you're a long way from Kansas!

Lakesong Hotel Resort

Lakesong Hotel Resort is a nature lover's heaven. Nestled amidst the picturesque backwaters of Kumarakom, this is a peaceful retreat which takes you to a world of tranquility. Set within scenic parkland with lakeside views, Lakesong's architecture is a marvel. Based on the traditional Kerala style, the cottages are gabbled and have tiled roofs. The exteriors are un-plastered which is a style reminiscent of the traditional houses of this region. 

Lakesong offers world-class facilities which include a swimming pool, bar, wi-fi, money exchange, laundry services and ayurveda treatments in a modern spa block. So check in, chill out and immerse yourself in the tranquility of waterside life. This hotel is the perfect retreat to enjoy those long, warm Indian nights.

Tea County

Tea County is an impressive property situated on the edge of Munnar, a bustling mountain town. The hotel, with its grand lobby and immaculately well maintained gardens, is a taste of old world living.  Rooms are spacious and well appointed with traditional features. Surrounded by the epic landscape of the tea plantations, this is a lovely hotel to return to after a invigorating day exploring the spectacular scenery of Munnar.

Hotel Fort House

Hotel Fort House is a charming, boutique family-run hotel located on the waterfront of Fort Cochin. This beautiful hotel is ideally situated and within walking distance of heritage monuments such as the Old Jewish Synagogue, the Dutch Palace and the bustling antique market of Mattancherry.

All rooms are built around a lush tropical garden which opens out into a long 'thinna' or veranda, providing a view of the backwaters. Air conditioned rooms blend traditional design with modern conveniences making Fort House your exotic home from home.
