Very good hotel at an ambient location. Homely service with nice room facilities. Lake view of this hotel is a plus point. Value for money since it fits within your budget. Peaceful and calm location with many shops around. Arrangements for trekking, boating and other cultural arrangements will be made. Prebooking also available. Had a nice stay with family and...

People from other country I urge you not to stay in this place. This people neva give you any receipt for wat you've paid. The owner is not trust worthy. He is mainly focused on your money. We recently underwent a very bad experience. He is very rude and he can do anything for money.

Stayed here for 6 nights this January and Rani and Ram were wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble. They were able to organise anything that we wanted to do. Very close to the entrance to the reserve but we have to say that we probably saw more wildlife from the balcony overlooking the reserve! It was a wonderful view... More

He is a very simple and humble man. Konark is a... More

Stayed at this place for a night. The rooms were good, spacious enough (unless you are thinking of playing football in the rooms) and very clean. Mr. Ramakrishnan, the host, was an amazing person, very friendly and ready to help any time. The place has an amazing view of the National Park from the balcony. Definitely recommend this place for... More

The home-stay is one of the best I have stayed in India. Their rooms are very clean and the beds are so comfortable. And Rani and Ram (Konark Homestay owners) are absolutely lovely, helpful, and friendly. Rani also makes dresses and pants that are both beautiful and at best prices of Thekkady! Oh and the view from their balcony looks... More

We spent 2 nights at Konark Homestay. It was a beautiful place to stay. We've asked for a jeep safari in Periyar national park and everything was managed by the owners in one hour. The stay in the family type of hotel was just gorgeous. Room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the terrace view to the national park... More
