Backwaters, Kerala, India
Philip Kuttys Farm
  • Feel part of the family yet enjoy the independence of your own spacious villa

  • Arrive at Philip Kutty Farm on a traditional Vallam (country boat)

  • For bird watchers the backwaters and the farm offer ample opportunities for sighting kingfishers, woodpeckers, egrets, cormorants, herons, crowpheasants, snakebirds, teals, etc.

  • Watch the hundreds of fireflies in the farm at night - you might just mistake them for the stars

Set on a private island in the heart of the backwaters, Philip Kutty’s is run by a local family who have opened their 750-acre estate to visitors wanting to experience the ways of local Indian life.

Guests are instantly welcomed to this family run property which boasts five comfortable traditional style waterfront cottages. The real joy of Philip Kutty’s Farm is the delightful Keralan cooking, and the best way to do this is to try this for yourself.

You are welcomed, looked after, and cared for by the family. Though the family hosts you, your privacy is assured as the waterfront villas are entirely independent.

There is a multitude of activities to keep you occupied at Philip Kutty’s Farm, from witnessing the organically sensitive farm methods growing coconut, toddy, nutmeg, banana, cocoa and pepper cultivation not to forget the jumbo prawn and karimeen (pearlspot) found in some of the farm canals. Other activities include birdwatching to catch glimpses of kingfishers, woodpeckers, egrets, cormorants, herons, crow pheasants, snakebirds and teals to name a few.

What Philip Kutty’s does so well is a return to the basics – of getting off the beaten track and discovering a magical experience with excellent friendly service. It is the simplicity that is the attraction, and this homestay matches Scott Dunn’s flair for boutique and interesting properties and wonderful and abstract rustic experiences.
