We stayed at Dewalokum for two nights as part of a tailor made trip to Southern India. We were made most welcome at the homestay from the moment of our arrival until we left. Our hosts, Jose, Sinta and their two children, Tara and Paul attended to our every need. We particularly enjoyed the guided walk around the grounds where Sinta explained how the farm was run and showed us some of the many different fruits, vegetables and spices that they grow.
Every meal served during our stay was delicious and the opportunity to see our evening meal being prepared by Sudish the chef, was most interesting. In addition, the eating of this fantastic meal on the candlelit terrace with the family and other guests was enchanting.
Our room was spacious and comfortable and the friendly and helpful staff worked hard to keep the house and grounds clean and tidy, without us ever being aware of the effort that must have gone into this.
Sadly time did not allow us to partake in the yoga sessions or the guided jungle walk to see local wildife and birds. However, we did manage to find time to rest by the pool, swim in the river and have a relaxing massage. Next time we will stay much longer.
