As part of a cycle tour with Kalypso Adventures (an excellent travel company in Kerala) we stayed at this beautiful spice plantation homestay. After a lovely welcome ceremony, with jasmine garlands, we had a tour of the incredible spice and rubber plantations. This place has been designed as eco-friendly, with a system to collect methane from the buffalo and cow... More

I stayed here as part of the intinerary for Kalypso Adventures cycle tour of Kerala. Kalypso's attention to detail and fine organisation are epitomised by our stay at Dewalokam. Deep in the countryside on the banks of a river, Jose and Sinta have built a beautiful house and a self sufficient organic farm, with fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, cattle and... More

Set in one of the prettiest parts of Kerala, Dewalokam is like an oasis with its coconut palm trees and spices growing by the river next to the rubber plantation. Jose, Sinta and their children, Tara and Paul, are the perfect hosts and are keen to share their gardens and lifestyle with you. Their staff are the most friendly and... More

My wife and I decided to go to a farm stay in the lower elevation area of Kerala and feel blessed to have found Dewalokam. What the travelers on Trip Advisor have said are true, and more so. What a welcome surprise and change from the cool, damp areas near Munnar and Thekkady. Dewalokam has all the wonderful scenery and... More

The homestay concept is a great alternative to staying in hotels. I wasn’t sure what to expect but it's brilliant! There is a house party atmosphere, the hosts, Jose and Cinta, are very warm and welcoming and their children charming. The whole place is spacious and peaceful – plenty of places to relax in the gardens, hammocks, swimming in both... More

This is the kind of place you want to keep secret—it it that special. I brought a small yoga group here earlier this year, and it was by far everyone's favorite place we stayed in Kerala. The owners and hosts Jose and Sinta and their children welcome you as part of the family, and the entire experience is warmly personal.... More

I would thoroughly recommend this fantastic find. Perfect location close to the Western Ghats. Wonderful accommodation, excellent food and outstanding hosts who join you for dinner. Trip along the river, forest walks, spice trails and opportunities to swim in the river or pool or laze in a hammock with just the sound of the birds. Spent two days here in... More

We don't normally write reviews but felt we had to for this place. We stayed for 7 nights back in Novemeber 2013 and so glad we decided to stay this long. We found it so relaxing and had plenty to keep us nicely occupied. What stood out for us was the hospitality. Jose, Sinta and their family were so welcoming... More

We arrived to a warm friendly and natural welcome at Dewalokam.....immediately the place enveloped us in its comfort and family atmosphere but with very good attention to details. The food is excellent and so well presented in a lovely dining room; the chefs cook to demonstrate the joys and diversity of Keralan cuisine and the general ambiance is very good.... More
