The Heritage house is a marvel of old Kerala carpentry skill. The gentle flow of air during the night builds a perfect ambiance. The adjoining view encompasses the plains of Theni and peaks of Periyar tiger reserve. The stay at the house and the morning views of the sorrounding gives a feeling that there is so much to life in... More

Amazing location! We, a family of 5, chose to stay in the 100-year-old (or more) wooden cottage. And we are all adults. That was definitely not a space for 5 adults, but its a beautiful cottage! The border between Kerala and Tamil Nadu was just next to the cottage. You must watch the sunrise—it's a breathtaking view. Warm welcome by... More

This was the only time during our month in India, that we were actually invited to the host house to have dinner with the whole family! (They also gave us the choice to eat in out cottage, but we happily accepted the invitation). My wife even helped preparing the dinner with Seline, the first lady of the house and learned... More

It was more than just a pleasant stay for my family during our 2 day stay at Manayath Heritage. The location in itself made up for a perfect setting to explore the rural facet of Chellarkovil village, so close to Thekkady. Thomas was more than willing to part with his farm produce to make us happy. We had bananas, papayas,... More

We had a pleasant stay with Thomas and his family. The homestay is in a small village. One of the cottages is a 100 year old Keralan house Thomas moved to it's current site and the other is a lovely building he built. Inside decor is very simple, with limited facilities/extras. There was a lot of rain during our stay... More

We went there on 23rd Oct. We had done 2 days of booking, We returned back after a day. It's a good property for those who are nature lovers , trackers or group of young people, but it may not suit kids and elderly people . We were offered typical Kerala house type small cottage. It was neat & clean,... More

Usually whenever we go to places especially new ones, we look for - good access, good accommodation, good views around, good hospitality, enthusiasm of hosts' and obviously good food options. You get everything here. I exchanged about 20 email conversations with Thomas before going there as I was concerned about kids and elders in the group that had been there.... More

This was one of the highlights of our India trip. Comfortable accommodation in the middle of a spice garden with views to die for. Our hosts were a mine of information on all things Indian - local and national, ancient and modern - attentive, but never intrusive. We fed and slept well and left this memorable place with a more...

All I can do is confirm what everyone has already said. We stayed in the traditional wooden house which was lovely, but the newer cottage has more space so both have advantages. Both have lovely verandahs to sit on, listen to the birds, read, relax. The view over Tamil Nadu is spectacular; Thomas' tour of his spice farm fascinating and... More

This is a very special place. Peacefull and beautifull placed in the countryside just at the border between Kerala and Tamil Nadu with a breathtaking view over the landscape. The family of Manayath Heritage served us with great hospitality, good food and an interesting roundtrip on their estate telling us about the challenges of running a spice plantage. On our... More
