I have tried several places in Thekkady, and Konark is definitely one of the best. Not only are the rooms extremely clean and comfortable, the family who runs it is really attentive and does everything to make your stay unforgettable. We were a group of eight, so we had the whole place to ourselves, and in the morning a large breakfast was served on the sitout from where we had a beautiful view over the national park border and the animals, something that was highly appreciated. I can highly recommend this homestay and will be back next year!

The Konark is a simple homestay at a great price. The bedroom is large, the bathroom is huge, and all of it is new and clean. It has a good location on the main road with rooms on the back of the building, far away from the noise, overlooking a large green field and jungle. You will see many birds and water buffalo, maybe deer. There is a balcony overlooking this area where you will eat a delicious breakfast of South Indian specialties. The owner and her husband were very helpful in planning what we wanted to do. Spend two nights so you will have a full day for the bamboo water rafting and hiking. We didn't, going instead on the 7:30am government boat ride which is a total waste of time. I had a sinus infection and the owner brought me a steamer and Ayervedic medicine. She was wonderful, helpful, I can't say enough about how I felt cared for.
