Fridays Place Kerala
Three beautifully crafted teak and mahogany cottages and a tsunami proof house set in acres of uninhabited palm garden on the banks of the clean and quiet Neyyar backwater. Each is on its own little island, with a natural garden of palm and acacia trees interplanted with jasmine and flowering shrubs. Ecologically sound and set in the serene backwaters of Poovar Island, our whole ethos is one of back to basics and an honest approach to all things. Our homely traditional Kerala cooking relies on first class produce from the local market, which we know has been grown in the time old organic way. Yes, the aubergines do sometimes have the odd worm but that, certainly here in India, is the 'organic test'.
