Aranyakam truly stands by its name! The colonial design homestay is situated midst a 30 acre coffee plantation and oversees the jungle( Well it looks and sounds like a jungle at least!) The rooms are really spacious and clean, decorated with classy wooden furniture and paintings. The balcony oversees the plantation and is a treat for the eyes especially when it is misty! Well what can I say about the hospitality. From joining you for breakfast daily to telling stories about Wayanad to giving to perfect directions to all tourist places, Neema and Rajest are excellent hosts. The rates for the rooms are really economical for all that they offer and the best part no hidden taxes and stuff in the bills which was truly surprising!
If you are deciding on this place make sure you know the directions well because we took a longer route and was really a pain. Also for people who are not from Kerala, food might be a problem because they serve only Kerala food (breakfast was decent) and there are no good restaurants nearby. We survived on bread and milk! :D
