This eco-friendly homestay (where the owners live on-site and play host to their guests) has been approved by the Kerala Tourism Department and is close to the luscious Western Ghats, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This authentic and enchanting homestay is furnished tastefully and has spacious interiors. The home-cooked Keralan and Indian dishes you’ll be served contains spices and vegetables grown organically within the grounds, and the filter coffee and tea come from the estate’s own plantations.
