This place is an interesting variation on the more routine homestay. The guest rooms are high quality and separate from the family & staff, but you are still made to feel a part of the family, including at meal times. Sinta and Jose are quite charming hosts (as are their two children), and ensure that one or other is around... More

With the deluge of positive reviews it nearly feels that my little comments are superfluous. But I'll say it anyway, Dewalokum is wonderful-accommodation, environment, food, service and of course hosts. This is my second time at Dewalokum and without doubt I will not visit India a third time without returning here. No down side except that I had to leave.

I can not possibly say enough good things about this place! Our family (2 adults and 3 children ages 4, 9, and 12) stayed here for 3 days and I wish it could have been longer. It is absolute heaven here!! 5 star! The grounds are gorgeous, the rooms super comfortable (A/C and hot water at level of 5 star... More

Dewalokam was on our tour and we were booked for just a night. It was so beautiful that we moved the whole of the rest of our tour forward to stay here longer. Everyone here is welcoming and friendly. It felt 5* in all ways, but with a warmth which is often lacking in 5* hotels. We've met the most... More

Could not believe my eyes! This place is Shangri-la. Old world service,the chef is a wonder and the whole place is impeccably clean. It is out of the way and does not advertise. It is worth the drive. Family owned for three generations, it is an organic farm.

I really love this place. I stayed there for 2 nights with my family. Food is very good, the family there is really nice and kind. I really have nothing to complain about except that I had to leave that paradise to come back to work.

Beautiful and peaceful setting, excellent hospitality and the right balance between a friendly home stay and a hotel. You can swim in the pool or the river and they offer yoga classes in the morning and walks through the plantation.

Jose and Sinta welcome you to their home, Dewalokam. Greeted with flowers, coconut water and burning scents, we felt like royalty on arrival. The farmstead is a little oasis of tranquility not far out of Cochin. The rooms are simple but everything is spotlessly clean. What we thought would be a couple of days whiling away time reading with little... More
