We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Mrs Ravindran who not only cooked the finest Keralan meal we had during our holiday, but also hosted most graciously. She was a fount of fascinating information about life in rural Kerala, and visiting her ancestral farm home was a great privilege. The rooms are excellent, and our forest walk and afternoon rafting on the slow moving river were idyllic retreats. Highly recommended for a short stay with a wonderfully non-intrusive but helpful hostess.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Pranavam Homestays is Wayanad's first homestay and still the best. The 4 spacious rooms each have a mezzanine lounge area, a very spacious main bedroom and individual balconies that look out onto acres of coffee plantations, tea estates and forested mountains. Pranavam is located at Pozhuthana, just 5.5 kms from Vythiri on the main Calicut highway, and 8 kms from Kalpetta, the district capital. The spectacular scenery at Banasura dam and lake is just 15kms away, while other attractions like Pookode lake, Lakkidi viewpoint and Edakkal caves are located less than an hours drive away. We are famous for our "ela sadya" - Kerala's multi-course meal traditionally served on plantain leaves - it is a meal to savour. A guided plantation walk around our spice gardens will help you work away the calories gently. Come down and enjoy the most relaxing vacation you have ever had!!! ... more less
