We spent the night at this home stay and it was most definitely one of the highlights of trip. After a beautiful boat cruise through the backwaters we were warmly welcomed into Vinit's beautifully renovated home by his equally beautiful family. Lunch involved some of the best food I have eaten on my whole trip, it was fresh, full of... More

We stayed in this beautiful homestay in February 2015. The place is spotless, modern and offers what feels like a real and rural Keralan experience. From the interesting village walk to the beautiful backwater boat ride, Ayanas offers great value for money. The family are so friendly and welcoming. The food was superb with the communal dining offering a different... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The family is so friendly, warm and welcoming. And the food is excellent, the best we've had at any homestay in India. This place was one of the highlights for us in Kerala and we highly recommend it. The house is a work in progress, particularly the roof terrace, but the inside is already... More

This is a little piece of luxury set in a very tranquil part of the world. Vinit & Annie are very welcoming and Vinit knows alot about the history of the backwaters and Kerala. The food and hospitality was first class.

This was one of the highlights of my South India tour. Immaculate, comfortable, welcoming, informative, friendly. This is a brand new family run homestay/hotel that offers so much more than somewhere to sleep. The food was delicious and our group was treated to a walking tour of the local area. Vinit the host, used to be a tour guide for... More

They take every thing very seriously and feel happy in making guests happy. Location is awesome right at the backwaters. If you are looking for... More

Quite easily the best guest house I have stayed at. Hosts were very very knowledgeable and friendly. There was a very interesting village walk and history included. The owners were very knowledgeable. All food was very nice traditional south Indian food. Luxury rooms with an amazingly decorated house. Overall would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend.

We spent one night at Ayana's Homestay as part of our Intrepid Tour through Southern India. The property was beautifully kept and very clean. Every room offers a great view- whether it's of the green rice paddies, or the backwaters at the front of the property. Our hosts were very welcoming and couldn't have been happier to share their knowledge... More

Not only is the scenery spectacular, but so are the people. Every meal is lovingly prepared and introduced ( you will see what I mean! ) and it is the tastiest traditional keralean food. Every body who works there is lovely and really makes you feel at home. The surrounding back waters are very beautiful and a perfect setting for... More

If you are looking for a Homestay where you can indulge your passion for birdwatching whilst enjoying wonderful hospitality, then this is the place for you. Only accessible by crossing the river in the hosts' punt, the setting is beautiful, right on the banks of the Pampa river. Our hosts couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome. They arranged...
