Perhaps the best homestay during our entire trip to Kerala. The rooms were extremely clean so much so that you need not wear your shoes at the entire homestay. Room no. 5 has the best view and feels royal. Other rooms are also good. I extremely loved this place. Mr. Shibu and his family members are also very friendly. He...

Stayed for a night. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Hot water is available only in the mornings. Location is also very good with plenty of options nearby for food. The venue for martial arts / dance is 5 min away. The owners stay in same building and are very helpful. Overall it's an excellent value for money.

Hospitality and ambiance are nice. Reasonable rates for semi luxury rooms. Stayed for 2 nights. Hotel staff are cooperative. Thekkady is a good place for nature lovers. You wont find much activities in the town. Don't fall in the trap of too much hype for the town. It is ok to visit the city only if you have patience to...

Nice people... Good and clean rooms... The view I found was average thought but it is right adjacent to the forest and if your lucky you might spot a wild Buffalo or sambar... But you will spot at least 25 different birds... The gallery is great! Shibu and his family is great! You are in good hands with them... Shibu...

I had booked two nights with my tour operator but because I arrived very early in the morning, my room was not available for check in. Mr Shibu availed a temporary room at ground level(not the main building) and told my guide/driver that I could check into my reserved room (1st level) after 11.30am. Unfortunately, together with the guide, I...

Clean spacious rooms. Good location. A kettle in rooms would have a good addition. They don't provide food (there are restaurant s near by). For two of us there was only one bath towel. The owners Shibu and Rajani were helpful. I got better rates, by calling them directly, than what was showing on the online portals.

The view is incredible. The accommodation opens up to a beautiful lush green forest which makes for a very pleasant stay. The owner is very accommodating and is very patient with all your queries. He hooked us up for a good safari into the Gavi forest which we would have otherwise missed.
