Beautiful place, warm and engaging family, wonderful food. Everyone eats together and it works, The chef will show you how the food it prepared and he is very skillful. We think it's the best food we had in Kerala. Don't miss it. Relax, eat and watch the kingfishers shoot out from the river bank.

A beautiful, peaceful location with the Western Ghats visible in the distance. Swing in a hammock alongside the river with just birdsong for company, walk the plantation and farm, eat the most wonderful food, choose one of the original 100 year old cottages or modern accommodation - both outstanding. Prof Jose and his family are wonderful hosts. There's a pool... More

Amazing discovery off the beaten track…the hosts (and their children) were genuine and wonderful. At this place you are invited into the lives of the host family and encouraged to make the most of it. We had a fab tour of the farm and spice garden and a uniquely warm welcome. But above all the Tandoor was the best we... More

We stayed 2 nights and it was not enough! After a busy sight- seeing 7 days in India we found Dewalokam to be a brilliant place to relax. We did not know what to expect from a "homestay" but this was more of a boutique hotel with very comfortable air-conditioned rooms. All of the meals were excellent, highlights being the... More

We were given a warm welcome at this unique homestay by our charming hosts Cinta and Jose and their delightful children Tara and Paul. The location is beautiful in its own spice gardens with the river flowing through. The accommodation was comfortable and the food wonderful. The chef demonstrated for us the excellent Keralan dishes we ate. Cinta and Jose... More

I can only re-iterate what has already been said about this wonderful place. The location of the home stay with the river running through is is so peaceful and to swim in the river is magical. The food is wonderful, and without doubt the best we had in India. Dining outside at night with all the candles lit was magical.... More

loved this experience; having never done a full board place before and being generally quite energetic and culturally explorative aussie kiwi couple it didn't come naturally going to a farm with full board. This was a great way to relax during a backpacking trip to Kerala and Sri Lanka. Jose, Sinta (and Tara and Paul) and their staff made the... More

I have just returned from Kerala and without doubt Dewalokam was by far the best place I stayed in. The location, the atmosphere, the food and the comfort provided here were top class. I cannot say enough good things about the place.

Dewalokam is a amazing farm and a beautiful homestay - it really is a wonderful location right by the river and the surrounding scenery is just so peaceful and beautiful. After spending 3 nights here we were totally relaxed and didn't want to leave. The food is the best we have ever had in India with a different menu every... More
