Places are made by people who run them and based on that Dewalokam was amazing. It is exactly as discribed and exceeds expectations. It is filled with charm and warmth and offers an experience that cannot be imitated. We would definitely go back and this time takes our friends and family.

Everything about Dewalokum is simply wonderful. The warm hospitality, the amazing food, the friendly helpful staff, the peaceful and beautiful environment....... an fabulous Ayurvedic massage was even arranged for me with ladies who came from the nearby village. It is so lovely to meet other travellers there too and to have a chat at mealtimes. I only wish I had... More

We stayed 2 nights at Sinta and Jose's Farmstay and were made to feel most welcome and part of their extended family. Their team looked after us admirably and being treated to nightly cookery demonstrations followed by G&Ts and a sumptuous meal was particularly special. Much enjoyed a "Spice Walk" and the visit to local waterfall but having the privilege... More

Our farm stay was the 5th out of 8 visits during our 3 weeks in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Whilst all our accommodation was just as we had hoped, the 3 days spent with Sinta and Jose and their family was memorable for different reasons. As a couple travelling on our own, the opportunity to share pre-dinner drinks, meals and... More

All words to praise this Farmstay have been used previously, the very warm welcome from your hosts, the enthusiastic staff, the excellent chef all add to the very special atmosphere that Dewalokam has.

We only stayed for 2 nights unfortunately but in that time had the most memorable of stays. Jose, Sinta and all the staff made us so welcome. The accommodation is spotless and the food superb - it was great to watch the chef demonstrate his skills then eat the results. Great tour of the farm - we saw so many... More

It has been some months since our trip to India and I am still telling people about our stay at Dewalokam. We were unexpected guests, having only booked the morning of our arrival but we were welcomed like long awaited friends. Jose, Sinta and the children went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home, as... More

I can only echo what everyone else has said. The best homestay. Generous hosts, very genuine and welcoming. Great chef. A tranquil setting. The staf are all so nice and you are made to feel so welcome. If you are able to get this into your itinerary then do so!

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
