Had been to Wayanad with my spouse in the first week of December '09 and it was probably the most peaceful and relaxing vacations we have had together. Thanks to the hospitality of Rajesh and Neema who run the homestay and also to my close friend in Bangalore who referred me to this place. It has all the ingredients of a perfect holiday
- good accomodation
- excellent food - the best kerala food we have had
- nature in its bounty
- amazing hospitality
While the hosts do mention that this is a homestay and not a hotel, I would request the guests to take this note seriously. Aranyakam is for nature lovers and for those who want to be closer to nature and enjoy Kerala hospitality. Anyone who wants to spend a vacation watching European Football or F1 or wanting to have a swim and sun bathe next to the pool or jive under arc lights at 2am or wish for an ayurvedic massage should look for hotels.
On the contrary if you are one who wants to sit on the verandah of a tree house, sip some good lime tea, read your favourite book and ocassioanlly glance a the picturesque Nilambur forests across the valley listening to the barks of wild goats grazing on the slopes and vast expanse of coffee plantations then Aranyakam is your destination. The only two things that you can hear are your own breadth and the rivulet that gushes down the valley.
Nature lovers, this is one perfect place for your tribe !!!
