Had 1 night in a tree house and 2 nights in the plantation house. Beautiful secluded location, friendly hosts and delicious home cooked food. Great scenery, amazing views, Edakkal Caves worth a visit. Highly recommended, would love to return one day.

This place is unbelievable. I envy the lifestyle of Neema and Rajesh so greatly and staying with them is not something we are going to forget for a while! The grounds are simply beautiful. Interspersed with coffee plants, banana trees and wildlife, you can spend hours just wandering around this gorgeous place. Rooms lovely too, comfy beds. My mother and... More

Spent a couple of days at place and it was a wonderful view from the Balcony. Located at the edge of human settlement, one can hear a vast array of insects, birds and funny sounding whistling squirrels. There is a water fall close by, which can be heard too. We spent a lot of time just sitting and listening to... More

Excellent stay with pure Kerala experience. Rooms are well maintained with the original Kerala touch. Food was excellent and served different menu on 2 different days. The backyard is coffee plantation and at night it will be filled with fire flies which is really a good treat for you eyes. Only 1 suggestion for improvement :-it will be really helpful... More

I stayed here in March with family and it was a wonderful experience. My daughter and I had the luxury tree house and it was wonderful, such a peaceful relief from the bustle of city and travel. My son and girlfriend stayed in the house which was comfortable. The food was amazing all fresh and plentiful and using ingredients from... More

Peaceful and beautiful place,best food,even beet root curry. Gorgeous smell of coffee flowers greeted us. Good place to relax,read and spot birds. Not the place to visit if you want to shop until you drop. The host, Rajesh, was working on the plantation but still took the time to show us the inner-workings of the coffee plantation, without being over... More

We spent two delicious days in this guest house. Our hosts were very caring and we had very nice discussions with them. We also ate delicious keralese dishes !! The homestay is a traditional house where we felt at home. It is amidst coffee plantations and the view from the estate is amazing. We wish you all to enjoy as... More

Spent two days and a night at Aranyakam. Locating the place isn't that hard, as you can call the hosts to get exact directions. If you are coming from via Calicut, the route is Meppady -> Chundale -> Rippon bus stop. You take a right from here, and ask for Vaalathur on reaching where anybody on the way can point... More

Had a 2 night stay in one of the Tree Houses. The location, with a view down and across to a natural forest was breathtaking and, given the practical difficulties in constructing and equipping it, the facilities in the Tree House were first class - hot water, comfortable bed and pretty good space. A short walk to the main building... More

I really liked this place even though there is nothing fancy about it. The beds are just ok, the rooms are sparsely furnished, the showers awkward, and there is no WiFi. What there is are spectacular views, wonderful local dishes served for dinner and breakfast, gracious hosts, and interesting buildings. I loved the architecture. I had a sinus infection and... More
