The Journey

Set by the Periyar River and cocooned by the Malayattoor forest, Quiet by the River is an intimate 4-cottage property in the lap of nature. This Absolute Air experience takes you to the heart of tropical Kerala, far from the city and the bustle of urban life. Each of the independent wood-and-stone cottages are built in the traditional Kerala style, with private verandahs and serene nature views. Enjoy leisurely meals that showcase the best of local Kerala cuisine, and for a special occasion, nothing beats a candlelit dinner on the riverside. The property’s ethos is rooted in reconnecting with nature. On this 4-day private jet holiday, you can go on long nature walks, sail down the Periyar, and spend tranquil evenings surrounded by birdsong.


Located on a river island, the property offers many opportunities to explore the surrounding wilderness and waterways. Birders will delight in the rich avian life of the Malayattoor forest. Hop into a canoe to explore the Periyar and its densely forested riverbanks on a sunset sail down the water.

Impressions of your holiday

Join a cooking class with a Master Chef

Learn how to cook regional specialties from the organic farm at a cooking demo conducted by a master chef. You’ll use local spices and vegetables to recreate a typical Kerala recipe.

Swim in natural pools surrounded by forest

Quiet by the River is surrounded by the Periyar river on all sides, and the unique terrain forms natural hollows in the river. These natural pools are ideal for a dip during springtime when the surrounding forest is at its greenest.

Take in a beautiful Sunset from a Canoe

Glide down the Periyar River on a country canoe for a most serene sunset. As the sun’s last rays hit the forest, the river glows golden and the birds settle on their roosts for the night.

See nocturnal Wildlife on a night walk

When the sun goes down, a walk around the property in the dark introduces you to Kerala’s many nocturnal creatures. You’ll see the forest in a completely different avatar as civets, owls, and other tiny creatures come to life.
