Philipkutty's Farm

A guest room at Philipkutty's Farm in Kerala, India
This island homestay experience takes place on a 50-acre working farm that practices sustainable, organic methods in its cultivation of coconut, nutmeg, bananas, cocoa and pepper. Accommodations are in private designer waterfront villas, adorned with antiques and set apart from the family residence. Home-cooked meals are served in a thatched pavilion on stilts overlooking the backwaters of Vembanad Lake, and for those who want to learn to prepare local Kerala cuisine, bespoke programs are offered, with a focus on dishes such as curries, fish fries and traditional appam (rice-based bread). All classes are hands-on, and the owners are happy to incorporate off-site lessons for those who want to learn about Muslim/Malabar cuisine. Non-cooking activities range from sunset cruises and bird-watching to farm walks, cycling and Ayurvedic treatments.
