Ayesha Manzil is a beautiful, old colonial style mansion overlooking the Arabian sea. The bungalow was built in 1862 by Murdoch Brown , an Englishman who came to Tellicherry as a trader of the East India company. Murdoch Brown set up a 300 acre Cinnamon plantation, 10 kms away from this house, which still exists and is the only one of it's kind in the country.
Ayisha Manzil formerly known as Judges Bungalow the present house was renamed as Ayesha Manzil in 1900 when it was bought by T.M. Moosa a local Muslim trader. Today his grandson C.P. Moosa invites you to stay with them and taste the warm hospitality, fantastic traditional cuisine with the emphasis on the fresh seafood and the local culture.
All the rooms boast of period furniture and have been furnished with family heirlooms and antiques collected and restored by the present owner. There are 5 air conditioned rooms.
They have a unique private swimming pool reminiscent of the traditional Kerala temple pools. There is fantastic 6 km long unpolluted beach.
Malabar was the epicenter of the Spice routes of yore and in Kerala these native spices are used not only to flavour the unique, regional cuisine but also as a preservative in Pickles / chutneys and believe it or not in the healing herbal Ayurvedic oils.
Tellicherry - a small town in the North Malabar, was once the largest and most famous trading centre for spices, especially Pepper the most favoured and sought after spice in Europe. Tellicherry Pepper can still be bought of the supermarket shelves in Europe and is renowned for its pungency and flavour!!
The Kerala coastline, especially Malabar being rich in Spices and fresh Seafood and no other community makes better use of this natural bounty than the "Mopillahs" - the Muslims of the North Kerala. Fresh Prawns, Shrimp, Crab, Mussles & Oysters are served up in sumptuous sauces and spicy curries. Also common vegetables, a wide variety of rice and meat dishes - all delicately flavoured with the famed spices and coconuts of Malabar. Last but not least are the wide variety of unusual Desserts and snacks without which no Malabari feast would be complete.
Now you can rediscover the rich heritage of this region and the flavours of traditional Kerala cuisine at Ayesha Manzil. Your hostess Ms. Faiza Moosa who will teach you the secrets of making good, authentic curries, is a well known culinary expert in Kerala Muslim cuisine and a week long holiday here will turn you too, into a Gourmet Curry chef.
