I stayed here on my Intrepid tour for one night. I couldn't have felt more welcome, everyone was very friendly and made sure that we were comfortable. We were greeted with Masala tea and biscuits and taken on an interesting and informative tour around the village returning by poleboat. We had traditional Keralan food served to us and there was...

Gopal and his family were the most amazing hosts they looked after us and all our needs with patience and a smile, a pleasure to be part of their family for 24hrs! They also took us on a walking tour of the local area to let us get a knowledge of the local area! The cutest ever grandson also is... More

We visited the homestay through our intrepid tour. The family is very friendly and goes above and beyond to make sure your experience is unique, the backwaters tour was great (thanks vinit), but the highlight for me was probably the food, definitely recommend!

The family at Ayana's treated us as though we were their first visitors. They were incredibly hospitable and were so helpful with everything. The rooms are very clean, and the location breathtaking. My friend was sick and they were extremely accommodating and helpful. I highly recommend Ayana's Homestay!

The location is obviously superb but rural as it is you really need to be able to rely on your host. With good meals, filtered drinking water and wifi ayana provides everything you need. Plus the host is SUPER friendly and hospitable so you cant go wrong.

I stayed at Ayana's for four nights from 24 to 27 September, after 4 weeks in North India touring with Intrepid. The Nair family are the perfect hosts, they were absolutely fantastic -so much so I stayed an extra 2 nights. The home cooked meals are worth the stay alone!!! Vinit Nair (former Intrepid tour leader) manages the homestay and... More

The Homestay is located right on the bank of the river with beautiful views. We enjoyed the delecious Kerala home cooked food and we're fed non stop. We were treated like royalty from the time we reached till we left the home, at the same time it did not take a minute to feel like our own home and our... More

A lovely stay. Very peaceful to just sit by the river in the shade with a book. Good guided walk explaining the local history and farming techniques, lovely boat ride, and nice to see some village life. Felt very welcomed and spoiled by the delicious healthy Keralan food.

Our small group plus guide arrived here after a superb day cruising around the Keralan Backwaters on a houseboat. The walk around the village was a nice introduction to local life. For my husband, the highlight of our 4 weeks in South India was the pole boat ride back to Ayana's that evening. Just drifting along listening to the music... More
