Ayesha Manzil, India

Located on the outskirts of town, Ayesha Manzil is the home of Moosa and his wife Faiza.

Moosa's family bought this house in 1900 from an English cinnamon planter and he has lived here much of his life. Faiza is a renowned cook of Keralan Mopillah cuisine using local seafood and spices and her recipes have already appeared in a number of books and magazines.

It's well worth taking a look in the kitchen to see how she prepares the delicious meals which are usually eaten at a table on the lawn with other guests, or have a cooking lesson, starting with a visit to the local markets to buy fresh ingredients.

The rooms are all simply furnished in traditional local style with mosquito nets around the rosewood beds and have large en-suite shower rooms.

There are views of the ocean from the garden which has hammocks and chairs strategically placed for the best views of the sunset. There is also a small swimming pool.
