Enter a world of calm and style. Perched 200 ft above an expansive stretch of green along the Arabian Sea coast, right at the edge of a cliff, the most prominent feature of this 10,000 sq ft villa is its asymmetrical sloping roof and the 4,500 sq ft infinity pool. Enjoy the stunning view, large outdoor pool, several decks, meditation areas within a natural space. There are plenty of places to sit and savour the experience, including a covered sitting area upstairs, a balcony with unmatchable views or the sitting room with a flat-screen TV, DVD, and computer. There is also wi-fi and a built-in music system throughout. At night, the variable lighting system makes the house a stunning setting for cocktails and dinner served at the table by the pool.
3 families with children from ages 2 to 13, we had a wonderful time. location is good, villa is beautiful, swimming pool is amazing, the service was great. Meena and the team where brilliant, on hand for everything we needed.
We recommended for a luxurious break with the family.
From the moment we arrived, when Meena and her team greeted us, the whole experience was fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble we were looked after and fed beautifully. The villa is everything you see in the photos and much much more.
The swimming pool was a huge hit with the adults and children alike and all I can say is we will return if we are ever lucky enough be back in Kerala. The views take your breath away as soon as you walk in through the door and continue to do so every time you catch a glimpse of them.
There were 10 of us 5 adults and 5 children, two families, there is so much space it feels like a boutique hotel and not a single residence at all.
If you are even considering staying in this fantastic place stop thinking and just do it, you will absolutely not regret it.
We spent 4 days at Visaya to celebrate my father's 70th birthday. Jagath and Meena who took care of us, and Nakeer the fabulous in-house chef, made sure that we had a splendid time and never wanted for anything. The house is beautifully designed, full of large, airy spaces to gather and admire the views over the cliff onto the Arabian Sea below. The sprawling pool, which looks out onto the ocean was probably the most popular feature of the house and we spent the majority of our time idling in the shallows. The bedrooms are all vast and thoughtfully (and tastefully) decorated, and the bathrooms all have open-air showers so that you always feel in touch with the beautiful surroundings outside. The food was exceptional. All we had to give Meena was the barest indication about what we felt like eating and she and Nakeer would figure out a sumptuous feast for us. We were treated to local specialties like jackfruit puttu, green banana curry, beautiful shrimp cooked a million different ways, crab curries--I could literally fill this entire review with praise for the marvellous food! Jagath and Meena took care of us in so many other ways, too--organizing a masseur to come to the house, coordinating multiple shopping trips into Thiruvananthapuram, and being wonderful company, too! On our last night we had a big birthday dinner for my father, and Meena and Jagath made sure it was a big hit, helping us decorate the house, organizing platters upon platters of delicious hors d'oeuvres, and putting on an exquisite feast that we'll all remember for years to come. We are already looking forward to our next trip!
A beautiful, architecturally fascinating house perched on a cliff overlooking the Arabian Sea, beyond the huge infinity pool. The house has a full complement of friendly and highly efficient staff: housekeeper-manager Meena Singh assisted by her husband Jagath; a superb cook who can cater for all tastes; three charming cleaning ladies, gardeners. The rooms are vast, the bathrooms too with a 'rainforest' shower open to the sky. Amazing meals are served at a long shady table overlooking the pool and the sea. Jagath is full of precious local information and will drive guests into town, to the beaches, to visit the famous backwaters of Kerala - and provide transport to and from the airport (45 minutes away). Nothing is too much trouble. I have been twice and already long to go back.
The villa was stunning, beautifully designed - both luxurious and comfortable. The view out to see and the setting is unbeatable. All the staff were helpful and friendly, we couldn't have asked for more. The food was so good, the best of traditional Kerelan cooking with fresh fish every day. It was the perfect house for our group of friends to come on holiday. Everyone of us were totally satisfied with the villa and thanks to Meena and the team!
How does one even describe heaven!! Well you can always go to those chaps who have had near death experience !!! Or you could just come here.
That bright light which people keep talking about, chances are that all it them were just looking at Visaya house !!! The place is just an absolute stunner.
The beauty of this place is that you don't even want to step out of the front door! That's how captivating it is and how it keeps you entangled with its gorgeous rooms, cool sit outs and of course the breathtaking pool and its views.
Life was surreal for us while we stayed there. Meena and Jagath, who handle the management of the place ended up being good friends for life now and it almost felt like we owned the place and stayed lik it as our "Home" just cause of their wonderful hospitality.
Suggest you there once!! You certainly might not ever ask for going to haven again!!
