Lucky enough to stay here for a couple of nights this Spring, I loved swanning around my spacious cottage ( constantly bustling into the well-equipped kitchen to stow drinks and snacks safely away from baking tropical heat in the fridge), or lazing in a hammock in the vast palm-tree shaded garden area, which looks directly out over the peaceful, lapping, traditional-fisher-boat-filled backwaters.
AND best of all was when Jos took me chugging out - in a tuktuk driven by the region's only female driver - to eat the freshest, most delicious curried shrimps at a shrimp farm overlooking the backwaters.
