We stayed here for a few days during the monsoon and had a great time. The place is well-built, comfortable, peaceful, clean, with a magnificent variety of animals and plants. Most of the food comes from the farm itself, and I've never had pineapple or chicken as good as the ones at Dewalokam. Dewalokam is 70% largish homestay, 30% resort.... More

It was our second visit and this time for four nights so in itself that tells you a lot. The welcome is always warm and... More

We visited this extraordinary farm during the monsoon and absolutely adored it. Jose and Sinta were perfect hosts, showing us everything we wanted with genuine enthusiasm and interest. We asked them lots of questions but they never got tired and the ethos of the place was amazing. The place is beautiful and you can bounce between delicious dinners, swimming in... More

If you plan to venture off the beaten track, this brilliant find is one of a kind! Jose, Sinta and their children are a wonderfully warm family. From their traditional Indian greeting on our arrival to our discussions around the dinner table, we were made to feel so welcome at Dewalokam. The rooms at the farm are clean and comfortable....

Beautiful place, beautiful people, beautiful food. What a hidden gem! Best food we've eaten in Kerala, and the most extraordinary farm. Milked cows, climbed coconut trees, tried every spice around, both in the garden and in the kitchen. We were taught how to cook the curries, which were unbeatably delicious. Couldn't recommend it more. Yoga in the morning left me... More

My brother & I visited during the monsoon (July 2016) and found the place to be really charming. There is only one other guest besides us and we practically had the whole place to ourselves!

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
