If you take 10+ years of professional hotel management experience and blend it with the innate sense of hospitality of a traditional Indian family what you get is Olives. But be ready to be disappointed with potentially most of your future Homestays after staying in olives because they would raise the bar so high that only people with obsessive compulsive... More

Mr.Biju and his family were so warm and hospitable am sure we will always remember them. Rooms were wonderful and extremely comfortable. Food, mmmmm well if you like... More

We stayed at Olives Homestay for three days and two nights, during our recent trip to Wayanad. This was our first stay at a homestay and I must admit that we were a little apprehensive about the experience. Mr. Biju Thomas and his family, put us completely at ease from the time we showed up at their lovely and warm... More

A very warm, hospitable and an informal stay with a personal touch. Great ambience and beautiful rooms. The breakfast was delicious . To keep it simple, it's a home away from Home. It's not just about holiday destination but also where we stay. I think it deserves more than 5 stars. I am planning to make this an annual affair.

I visited Wayanad and stayed here for 3 days with my family and friends last month. The property is well situated and each room has superb view. When you reach the home stay, the situation of the property will just impress you. When you stay there slowly you start realize one of the best hospitality experience you were ever going... More
