This was the last stop during our Kerala trip, and it was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the lake and backwater surroundings. Nirmala and Babu were very sweet and helpful. The food was consistently tasty and grounds and room are beautifully appointed.

We arrived in the middle of the night and were welcomed by Nirmala with sweet tea which was much needed! When we woke up the following morning and opened our curtains our breath was taken away by the stunning view over the water. The room was lovely, very very comfortable with AC and slightly hit and miss wi-fi but it... More

Taamara is a good 40min drive from Alleppy, in the right direction towards Cochin airport, so it makes a great last stop of your holiday. It's a wonderfully tranquil spot where you can sit on the porch and watch the fisherman tend to their Chinese nets. There's not a great deal to do around here but we enjoyed a circular... More

Taamara is a beautiful, relaxing homestay with stunning views of Lake Vembanad, in the Alleppey district of Kerala. The views from the room's decked terraces over the lake/backwaters is simply stunning - sit and watch the fishermen work their chinese fishing nets at sunset and sunrise. The grounds are beautiful, the food absolutely delicious, and the hosts, Nirmala and Babu... More

Host Nirmala & her husband made us feel so welcome, they showed us to our comfortable room with veranda overlooking the lake and backwaters .They so thoughtfully put up and decorated... More

We spent two wonderful days and nights here and wished we could have stayed longer. The food was absolutely first class and the hosts were charming. The location was a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of the towns. The sunsets and sunrises over the lake from our room were stunning and we would recommend this to anybody. We... More

My wife and I decided to take a break in Kerala for a couple of days last December. I'm in the travel business myself, and quote aware of the numerous properties that dot Kerala. However, Taamara was still unknown to us because they hardly advertise or promote themselves actively. After reading a bit on tripadvisor and having a look at... More

The view from the deck on the morning, evening was simply fabulous. The silence of the place is a boon, coming from a city. I spent only a night here. But I long to return. Worth every penny, definitely recommended.

Regrettably we only spent one night at this lovely little homestay, but the backwater setting was exquisite and the hosts absolutely lovely. We had a delicious homecooked meal and rooms were nicely appointed. Wish we could have spent more time!
