A warm welcome with family and smart efficient villager employees all anxious that you have an amazing time. Our room spacious and comfortable in main block. Some rooms have open air access to bathrooms. We were given a choice. Food plentiful and high quality. Cookery demonstrations and tour of spices and produce fascinating. Methane for cooking gleaned from cow manure....

It's very difficult to come up with new phrases regarding the serenity of this farmstay, others have taken the words out of my mouth. Jose and Sinta, thank you for your hospitality ( sorry for accidentally damaging the room door 😀). A big shout out to the staff also, everyone was a gem. We loved swimming in the river, lazing...

This is our second visit here to the place of peace quiet and tranquility. It certainly won't be our last visit. No other place I know offers you part of Jose, Sinta's family life, with Tara and Paul their very bright well mannered children throw into the mix. The food and staff are wonderful the lovely cleaning ladies alway around...

Dear Bill and Wendy, your second visit and the long stay for 15 Days has been one of our crowning glory. We often wondered how such rich people as you adjusted with our basic facilities. But that is your greatness. We are still more humbled by your kindness. Thank you very much.

In 2012, at the recommendation of our travel agent, my wife and I spent three blissful days in Dewalokam Farmstead Retreat and fell completely in love with it. We promised ourselves to return to this amazing place at the first possible opportunity. In November 2016 our promise turned into reality, far exceeding our utmost expectations. We were overjoyed to find...

There is nothing to fault in this most friendly, comfortable homestay which was the best by far in our recent trip to Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Jose and Sita are such an engaging couple and were so informative about life in Kerala.

We had two nights here on our way back to the coast from Munnar and were bowled over by the hospitality shown to us by Jose and Sinta and their delightful children Tara and Paul. Previous reviews have described the rooms, excellent food and comprehensive programme of activities so it is pointless repeating the positive points they all made. Fellow...

We all at Dewalokam are grateful to you for the great support you gave us during the stay and afterwards. We feared that public forums like tripadvisor could be used by the 'difficult' guests. It is true that sometimes we feel very much belittled by a very small number of guests. But as you can see on this page the...

A review of this nature haven is almost unnecessary, as very many visitors more eloquent than myself, have said it all.

They are both...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dewalokam is a Homestay, a B&B, and a Specialty Lodging all merged into one, in an organic farm, in the deep interiors of Kerala. You are surrounded on all sides by the bountiful nature, and the atmosphere is filled with birdsongs and the sound of water rippling in the river. It is a unique place with no parallels. The river front property, enveloped by the rain forests of Kerala, produces milk and honey, fruits and vegetables, eggs and meat all in a truly organic way. The food, accommodation and the environment make it a true paradise.We offer Yoga, Ayurveda and Cooking Packages. ... more   less
