We arrived to a traditional Keralan welcome, by Sinta and her fellow workers. This family run homestay is amazing. Jose took us round the garden and showed us all the herbs, fruits, flowers and animals that the farm has. Sinta is always making sure her guests are happy. We watched the chef cook part of the evening meal. Which always... More

Where shall I start? Early-morning yoga in the shala (complimentary btw) with an excellent teacher, followed by a dip in the beautiful pool a few feet away? The lovely family who run the place and their very cool kids. We had a very comfortable and sunny room on the first floor, with a view of the garden. The staff couldn't... More

Having just returned from a 5 week holiday in India, I cannot recommend Dewalacam highly enough. We stayed at the Imperial in Delhi, had a suite at the Lake Palace in Udaipur, stayed in a Mahararjah's suite in a 400 year old fort in Rajastan, even had our own private swimming pool at the hotel down south but nothing comes...

Located ten degrees above the equator in the state of Kerala, Dewalokam offers a unique lodging experience. It could be described as a combination high-end eco-lodge, spice farm and rubber plantation. It has the amenities of a fine hotel, plus exposure to the flora and fauna of southern India. Your innkeepers are college professors, and have a lovely family.

Beautifully run homestay with a stunning location on the bank of a wide section of river in the jungle. The entire family and staff welcome you warmly and do their best throughout your stay to meet all your needs to perfection. We are not an easy family with 3 small children, requesting different food tastes, times and activity schedules etc... More

Spent 4nights here to recover from journey-could easily have spent longer. Superb hospitality, even provided with clothes when a suitcase failed to arrive! Swimming in the river bliss, tour of the estate v. interesting and the food some of the best we had in India.

The situation of this Homestay is delightful by a river. The owners and family are so welcoming, interested in everyone who stays and keen to show visitors their beautiful surroundings. Staff are friendly and accommodating. Rooms comfortable and food very good. Chef will give a cooking demonstration.

We have never seen anything on this website that has such a high percentage of 'excellent' reviews and pretty much nothing else. It is easy to see why from the moment you arrive. In a country with lots of noise, pollution and very busy, chaotic streets and cities a break to Kerala is well worth it and a detour to... More

Spent 3 nights here and wished it had been longer. Everything was just perfect. Accommodation was superb and all the staff were so welcoming and went above and beyond to make our stay so memorable. There was always something to do be it a walk, swim or just chatting. The whole atmosphere was one of relaxation and contentment. This really... More
