Riveredge Villa is a serviced guest house, situated in the heart of 'God's own Country'. In a quiet corner of Kochi, next to the beautiful backwaters, you can unwind in our luxury villa, surrounded by nature.
Riveredge Villa is a modern, two bedroom guest house, built in the traditional Keralan style. The villa is located in a quiet district about 5 kilometres east of Fort Cochin, surrounded by coconut palms and a large garden which edges a picturesque stretch of Kerala's famous backwaters.
Both double bedrooms have ceiling fans, air conditioning and en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold water. The spacious living and dining area has plenty of comfy seating, a large dining table and access to the verandah and garden to the rear of the villa. A fully equipped kitchen including gas hobs, fridge freezer, kettle and all crockery is also available.
The large garden, filled with flowers and coconut trees includes outdoor seating and hammocks, perfect for lounging or watching the river wildlife. From the garden you can directly access the backwaters - ideal for fishing or taking a boat ride.
At Riveredge Villa you can do as much or as little as you want. We can arrange various activities and services for you and if you'd like to experience something not mentioned here, just let us know and we'll work something out...
At the villa:
Beyond relaxing in our beautiful private garden, next to the river's edge where you can observe kingfishers and egrets, we also offer several gentle activities based around the villa.
Fishing: catch your own supper right outside the house - it doesn't get any fresher than that! If you don't catch anything you can console yourself with a refreshing coconut picked straight from the trees.
Canoeing: take a gentle row around the backwaters directly from our garden and get close to the rich variety of wildlife which inhabit the area.
Cycling or walking: we can recommend a range of different length, self guided, circular routes - explore the quite neighbourhoods, myriad temples, markets and rich diversity which make up Indian life.
Toddy: We'll show you a real side of Keralan life most tourists don't get to experience - lunch and a drink at a traditional local toddy shop...
We can also recommend the most interesting buildings, best restaurants and top sights in the tourist centre of Kochi. We'll even arrange a tuk-tuk to pick you up from the Villa for an authentic Indian travel experience.
