I visited Kerala in May 2014 and chose this location based on the reviews posted. Rajeev was the best host and took care of everything during my stay. The food was delicious and different every day, and best of all it was home-cooked and authentic to the area. I spent hours just sitting at the water's edge watching and waving... More

I visited Allepey with my parents with Rajeev as our host. We had a lovely time there. Rajeev was a great host who personally took care of every aspect of our stay. The rooms are comfortable and the house is beautiful with a large garden in front where one can watch life go by on the river. The traditional Kerala... More

When you do a home stay experience, you expect very basic things - clean rooms, mouth-watering home-made food and interesting stories from the host. Pamba Heritage checked all these boxes! Rajeev Thomas is your down-to earth, unassuming, reserved and charming host who looks after you well. His home is placed in an idyllic setting at the Allepy backwaters where you... More

My best friend and I spent 3 idylllic nights at Pamba in early March. The room was beautifully classic and simple. It was cool, immaculately clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The food was delicious, and the hammock was too tempting - lie with a good book to read, or just enjoy the scenery and the world of the... More

We (2 Australian friends) stayed with Rajeev at Pamba last week for 3 wonderful nights. The rooms are wonderfully charming and exceptionally clean. The location right on the river is perfect for watching life on the backwaters go by. The food was some of the best we had in our time in India and we couldn't have asked for a... More

My friend and I thoroughly thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Pamba Heritage. The whole experience was so surreal, idyllic, carefree and relaxing that it really felt like we got a glimpse of paradise. The warmth and hospitality that Rajeev and his entire family showed us made us feel right at home. From the special care that Rajeev's mother took in... More

We enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing stay at Pamba. Rajeev was a very attentive host and has grand plans for the homestay. We spent a lot of time lazing in hammocks watching the world go by on the river but also visited the local Ayurvedic doctor and took two trips out on the river, one by motorboat and the other by...

My husband and I have just returned from a 2 night stay with Rajiv and his family. The accommodation is in a really lovely and restful location where watching houseboats and motor boats go by is a daily pastimes. Watching the locals going about their daily chores of washing their clothes and bodies in the waters never ceased to interest... More

Rajeev and his family are lovely people and tried hard to provide a homestay experience. The web site is misleading, this homestay is not a mansion and there are no activities that are metioned on their website. We felt the food was adequte but not amazing. There is very little to do as this location is isloated. The rooms are... More

We arrived at Pamba Villa on Christmas Eve and our party took up all 3 rooms. There was 10 of us in total so quite a big group for Rajeev to cater for especially as we were there for 6 nights. We had already done the Golden Triangle Tour so we were ready for some relaxation and that is pretty... More
