“Our mission is to give our guests a truly authentic, meaningful and affordable Kerala experience. We love sharing and learning about other people and cultures and feel passionate about you experiencing the beauty of our own.” Bijoy & Aleena
A Boutique Villa by the Sea
Villa Santa Maria is a family operated boutique guest villa on the Arabian coast, surrounded by lush tropical plants and rich in traditional Kerala culture. It is hard to believe the airport is just 10 minutes away. We invite you to immerse in the tranquillity and beauty of the Trivandrum beaches and the history and culture. Whether your stay is a day or weeks, the experience will be a memory to cherish.
“Bijoy and Aleena made our last 2 nights in India very memorable…” Tobias, Ireland, AirBnB
“Lovely family, Enchanting stay.” Denise, Canada, Booking.com
The award winning proprietors, Bijoy and Aleena , offer the Villa for you to fully experience Kerala. Born and raised in Trivandrum, they are your most trusted guides to Kerala. As an only child, Bijoy’s Amma took him under her wing and taught him the essence of Ayurvedic cooking down to the smallest of details. Every ingredient is hand chosen for quality. Aleena, now shares this craft, and together they provide delicious and healthy meals for the most discriminating guests. Cooking classes are available for guests, chefs and medical practioners. Or, eat out at our recommended restaurants!
“This experience is outstanding. The foods are like no others I have ever tasted. I booked for the room only,
but once I tasted the food, I was hooked.” Jeff, USA, AirBnB
Kerala is the birthplace of Ayurvedic medicine and guests have the opportunity to obtain a simple diagnosis and recommended Ayurveda medicine regime, onsite, during their stay. Yoga, integral to Ayurveda, is available on our rooftop. All of the medicines, oils and herbs are chosen from finest sources. Our Ayurveda program is done in partnership with Dr. Jayhari (BAMS) and Yoga Alliance.
“Perfectly Blissful. I choose one of the bedrooms with a shared bath at Villa Santa Maria. I wanted to be close to the beach and immerse in the local culture. I had heard of Ayurveda but had no knowledge of their program. Dr. Jayhari arrived the following morning to work with two other guests and I decided to join in. What started as a visit to Kerala ended as a 9 day Ayurveda and yoga experience. It was exactly what I didn’t know that I always needed. Bijoy and Aleena feel like family and the end of my journey came far too soon. I will be back to this special place that has found a way into my heart.” Liza, Spain & NYC
Should you desire shopping, spice tour, hiking, historical or cultural experience, they are available by Tuk, Taxi or Train with or without a guide as designed to meet your needs.
“We loved our stay at Bijoy’s beautiful home. He made us feel extremely welcome and also very relaxed and comfortable as two girls traveling on our own. He provided great local tips and travel advice, as well as a delicious breakfast and a wonderful room with an extremely comfy bed.”Jess, Canada, AirBnB
All of the experiences are appropriately priced to meet your budget. Please email us with any questions.
“Thanks to Bijoy, my holiday in Kerala truly began. I had been in Kerala a week prior to finding the right (place). My experience before was horrible. Finding a clean and quiet place with amazing food only started the day I arrived to Bijoy’s place. Always making sure you’re comfortable and ready to answer any question.“ Elizabeth, South Africa, AirBnB
