We visited Meena's homestay as part of a culinary tour around Kerala. Not only is Meena herself one of the most welcoming, interesting, vibrant people we met on our trip, she is a fabulous and knowledgeable cook. You won't want to eat anywhere else! We had a fascinating cooking lesson at every meal, in which we learned about food from all over India, but particular Tamil Nadu, where she's originally from. Her house (which she built with her husband) is also a treasure, particularly the atrium-like common room and plant-covered roof terrace. For those looking for a place to stay in Thekkady with personality, character and charm - not to mention lots of great food! - Meena's is the place to be.
