This is a very small place, consisting of two houses. There is another resort on the same premises, so it is a little confusing at first. My little house was only a few meters from the beach, so the only noise was the rolling of the waves. I must say that the house is in dire need of renovation. There... More

Ananda Beach Home is a small cluster of beachside rooms about a 45 minute walk along the beach or through local villages to Alappuzha. (Or a 15 minute auto or taxi ride). Firstly, this place is cheap, so if that is the main priority for you then you can add an extra point to the rating above. However, it is... More

This place is located exactly infront of the Thumpoly beach, which is very cool and calm. The place itself is maintained so beautifully with the greenery and the cottages are traditional. All these plus point together makes this place memorable. If you want peaceful and beautidul vacation just visit this place.

Ananda is a a value for money budget stay at Thumpoly Beach. At Ananda you can enjoy the experience of an almost private beach. A section of the beach also meets the emerald green back waters, and if you want to explore the section of the back water, you will find yourself walking through a quaint Kerala village. The place...

I had stayed here with my family [5 adults and and 2 kids] during January 2014. The main reason that i choose this place was the private beach. But when i got there it was full of S**T. All the local folks use this place for their morning routines as what they claim as a private beach. Even the rooms... More

Its far off from the hustle-bustle of the crowds and the demanding life of city. The Sea is roaring relentlessly that is so soothing to the ears. The first thing that strikes you when you approach to this resort is - Where the hell am i headed to? There is a thin lane leading to this homestay and with no... More

I stayed at Ananda Beach Home for a couple of days during April 2013 together with three friends. We had such a great time, due to the nice and peaceful location with the private beach, but especially because of the hospitality of Thomas, the Manager, and his team. He arranged all kind of activities for us, such as arranging a... More

I stayed here for a couple of days during the end of 2012 (Christmas vacation). Ananda Beach home is a little difficult to reach but once you are there you will enjoy its serenity, the location and the hospitality. Thomas, the Manager, takes care of each guest individually and makes sure everything is perfect and up to the expectation. I... More

We were amazed by the location of this place. It has a private beach. Once you see other crowded beaches open to public, you would come to realize that ananda beach home is the best place to stay without a doubt. There is a lake with a great view whichever direction you look at. Thomas and his team provide great... More
