There is nothing to fault in this most friendly, comfortable homestay which was the best by far in our recent trip to Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Jose and Sita are such an engaging couple and were so informative about life in Kerala.

Wow, what a beautiful relaxing place! Plenty of space, plenty to do, whether that be a dip in the river (which includes a free foot spa from the resident fish), a swim in the pool, a gentle swing in one the many hammocks, a farm tour or a cookery demonstration....it's up to you.... This is special! Thank you Jose &...

We had two nights here on our way back to the coast from Munnar and were bowled over by the hospitality shown to us by Jose and Sinta and their delightful children Tara and Paul. Previous reviews have described the rooms, excellent food and comprehensive programme of activities so it is pointless repeating the positive points they all made. Fellow...

A review of this nature haven is almost unnecessary, as very many visitors more eloquent than myself, have said it all. The hosts, Jose and Sita are 2 of the most delightful and charming hosts, whose sole aim seems to be ensuring that their guests are happy, comfortable and well informed of their delightful tropical farm surroundings. They are both...

We are deeply grateful to you John, for the immense support you gave us during your stay which helped us tide over the problems from the couple of 'difficult guests' we had during your stay. We are also thankful to you for this wonderful review. The realistic review explains that it is not a luxury place, but worth trying for...

Jose and Sita have got everything absolutely spot on- from the warm welcome, comfort of the rooms , food and activities on offer. Listen to Jose and take a dip in the river . Cooking demo also a must!

Thank you Ryan for the brief, crisp, but comprehensive review. We specially like your advice to trust me, Jose, about the river and the activities. We want to offer our best and the kind trust and cooperation is a must to make the best of it. Thank you once again.

I simply loved this place. I've been lucky enough to travel across India over the years and stayed in some truly beautiful places, but I think this is my favourite place yet. There is no greater luxury than being able to experience the serenity and natural beauty of the setting, or the warmth of the family. Travelling solo, the set-up...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was a wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle of India. The owners and staff were knowledgeable and helpful, food was awesome. Swimming in the river was the highlight. Jose organises the transport to and from the farm extremely well. The walks are interesting and educational. I will be back.

Truly Dewalokam! We'd planned a family get together for 5 nights away from home and it couldn't have been any better. None of us had imagined such a beautiful place with outstanding service. We were 5 families, ages ranging from 2-68 yrs and -all- of us had fun. 3 families stayed in the 100 year old cottage with huge outdoor...

We stayed here for two nights and it was really special. The hosts are very kind and really want you to have a good time. They arrange walking tours and yoga and do all the cooking (which is amazing) from produce that comes from the farm. We did not stay in the main house which was great as it offered...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dewalokam is a Homestay, a B&B, and a Specialty Lodging all merged into one, in an organic farm, in the deep interiors of Kerala. You are surrounded on all sides by the bountiful nature, and the atmosphere is filled with birdsongs and the sound of water rippling in the river. It is a unique place with no parallels. The river front property, enveloped by the rain forests of Kerala, produces milk and honey, fruits and vegetables, eggs and meat all in a truly organic way. The food, accommodation and the environment make it a true paradise.We offer Yoga, Ayurveda and Cooking Packages. ... more   less
