Ayana's Homestay

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 6, 2012

This was a true home stay experience. We were made very welcome by everyone and we felt we got to know the 'real' India. The food was wonderful, I even got a personal Indian cooking lesson. The room had a comfortable bed, A/C, fan and ensuite. The location of the property was amazing, right on the backwaters (the front door was about 5 metres from the water!). The hosts were very welcoming and knowledgeable, and they delighted in sharing their home with us.

This homestay was amazing. I was made to feel so welcome. The food was fantastic. Gopal and Padma, my hosts were so lovely. Ayana's Homestay was my favourite experience I had during my time in India. It was beautiful!

I stayed at Ayana's Homestay as part of an Intrepid trip and it was definitely one of the best memories I have taken away with me. The home is in a beautiful setting and very clean. It really feels like a home and the food was some of the best I had while on the trip. A great experience and worth the journey to Alappuzha. Don't expect luxury- you may have a bucket shower but it's all part of the experience.

I really enjoyed this homestay experience. The family was very friendly and informative. The food was a great introduction to local cuisine. The rooms were clean and the hosues were very well organised and comfortable. Highly recommended for a real local experience.

I had a delightful stay at Ayana's Homestay. The service was great and the food delicious and leant of it, yum. Gopal and his wife Padma were kindness itself, interesting and informative. They go out of their way to ensure everyone is happy and enjoying themselves.

I really enjoyed my stay here, it was part of an Intrepid tour. The location on the river was so peaceful, my room was large and clean and the family very accommodating. Excellent food too! I was taken on a guided walk around the area and an ayervedic massage at the local hospital was booked for me. Couldn't fault it!
