This is a very good place to stay with a lot of atmosphere. Strongly recommend to stay at least one night in a tree hut (more is not necessary as it is not as comfortable as the main building and it is more expensive). Food cooked by Meena and her helpers was exceptionally good and her husband was very friendly...

We spent 3 nights in a wonderfully tranquil and relaxed setting with warm and friendly hosts Neema and Rajesh who made us feel at home. One night in the tree house was superb. Wayanad was so interesting and beautiful views surround the property.

During Dussara holidays I stayed with my husband and son in Aranyakam for 3 days. The place was lot more than what I had thought of, after reading reviews from Trip advisor.

We visited them in August 2012, and the experience matched the high expectations that we had based on tripadvisor reviews. Great property, charming ancestral house set in a beautiful coffee and spice estate. Even better were the hosts, who ensured that our stay was comfortable. Would heartily recommend!!
