Lovely rooms, great beds, beautiful view, good food, interesting tour of the surrounding area. It could not have been better. An oasis! Our host was a native of the area and had such interesting stories of the history of Alappuzha.

My husband and I stayed at Ayana's for one night. It's a very comfortable homestay with far more amenities than expected. The rooms are very clean, have AC and hot showers. The location is absolutely superb if you are looking for a place to relax.

The rooms were all arranged around a small central courtyard and all very comfortable and clean with great bathrooms and views either over the water at... More

This is a remote homestay which will give you a real feel of the Backwaters. The hosts Gopal and Vinit were very welcoming and offered lovely Indian meals. The homestay was clean and new and had a great energy to it.
