We stayed at Konark as a base for exploring the Thekkady area including the safari park (just 200m up the road). Rani (the owner) was so kind and accommodating to our needs, as well as an excellent chef (try the egg curry)! Would recommend in a heartbeat!

Ram and Rani are fantastic hosts and the shower is amazing. The best part is the Periyar National Park in the back garden, so you can sit on the balcony and do some wildlife spotting over a great Indian breakfast. Would highly recommend!

The view from the terrace is beautiful. The location is great - Periyar Reserve is just at the end of the road and it is a short walk into Kumily town for local restaurants and shopping. Rani and Ram were very kind and attentive hosts, and Rani is a wonderful cook.
