Heritage Backwaters Home stay is the perfect place to put up if you are looking for soaking in the beauty of the lush green Kerala backwaters. It’s a very professionally managed place, but with a Heart. Our hosts, Xavier Uncle and Lovely Aunty were extremely warm and took care of our minutest needs. The rooms were very clean and well...

Tucked away in the Paripu village of Kottayam, Backwater Heritage ticks all the right boxes. We were six friends and the two-day stay just wasn’t enough. The homestay is very well maintained and is delightfully cosy with the Sun beaming through its corridors. The coo cooing of beautiful, colourful birds; rich lush green surrounding; a light chill breeze; a stream... More

We stayed only one night at the backwater homestay, but it was great! If you just want to relax for a couple of days and taste some real backwater atmosphere this place is perfect. You can go for nice walks and boat trips or just relax with a book in one of the many hammocks. And the food is just... More

We had a wonderful few nights here and would recommend anyone else to do so also. Very reasonably priced for the luxury, and the food was excellent also. Worth going back to this wonderful part of the world for this home stay alone, we will definitely visit again.

Stayed with Mr.Xavier for two nights in April 2014 and have to say that we wished we could have stayed longer. The food at backwater heritage was some of the best we experienced ever. The waterfront location and greenish surroundings feels like you are in heaven. Hope, I could visit again in next year vacation. Wishing you all the best.
