We stayed here with 6 friends in October and so had booked the whole house. I had made bookings much earlier and requested that we be met at the railway station at 2am. On arrival at the station our driver was waiting and whisked us to the slendid house that was to be our home for the next 3 days.... More

We reserved a Premium room, which was spacious and furnished with antiques. Owner Biju is knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. He is justly proud of his lodging. We booked an overnight houseboat cruise on Biju's brother's boar. But while his brother owns the houseboat we never met him. A crew of two handled the boat and meals aboard. At 8,500 rupees... More

A wonderfully restored and beautifully maintained heritage home. We stayed in the main building, which we reliably informed by the friendly staff dated back to 1890. The food was not cooked on site, but there is a menu available that you can order food from earlier in the day for you evening meal. You can spend a very peaceful morning... More

I'll be honest, when we first arrived at the house we wondered what we were getting into. The rooms seemed gloomy and small. However, once we'd got over the initial surprise, we found it to be an incredible, and properly authentic, place to stay. The wonderful collection of antiques and ornaments coupled with the big rustic beams around the building... More

Biju is used to French folk telling him his name means jewel in French. Big hearted and jovial he'll be the one setting you up at Tharavad unless you arrive as I did late into the night in which case equally amenable Sony will be there. Go on, give him the Boney M line. He'll be quick to ask you... More

The servant at this hotel broke into my room and tried to rape me in my sleep. The hotel owners tried to cover it up and showed no regard for my health. As a young Indian American woman traveling alone, I would warn against staying at this hotel. I'm currently seeking legal action against the hotel--who expressed no concern for... More

We felt lucky to find this gem of a house. Only 10 minute walk to beach. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room although basic was very clean. Mattress hard but that is the same in most places in India. Good breakfast. We enjoyed sitting out on the front verandah of the house with a cup of tea after a day... More

We did not know and plan to stay at Tharavad Homestay but it turns out very nice and relaxing stay. First step into the house, I love at the first sight. The house was built over 100 years, well-maintained and very classic. Every corner of the house seems to have its own story which made our experience very special. But... More

We stayed here for a total of four nights' leaving in the middle for a boat trip. No evening meals available now but good restaurants with varying prices available on the beach road, about ten minutes walk for the young and fit and a short tuc tuc ride for the elderly. The room was large and airy with a good... More
