We booked two nights at Dewalokam purely based on their excellent reviews on Tripadvisor, so it felt a bit like a 'gamble' at the time. But it was certainly a gamble that paid off, as it was one of the loveliest places we stayed in Kerala. The rooms were spotlessly clean, the food excellent and the gardens beautiful, but more importantly the welcome and friendliness were overwhelming and we had a wonderful stay, wishing we had booked 3 nights or more. Our children also felt really welcome and had so much fun playing in the swimming pool, swimming in the river and hanging out with the other children. You can do as much or as little as you want, but all the free activities like the spice walk around the farm, the 'jungle' walk across the river, the cooking demonstrations and early morning yoga were all really interesting. I know Sinta worries about guests having too high expectations and hence being left disappointed, but I believe that would be impossible. We certainly weren't disappointed and everytime I use my pepper grinder now at home with the pepper corns grown at Dewalokam I think of was a lovely time we had!
