If you wish to travel beyond the weather-beaten and well-trod tourist path of south and central Kerala, try Bekal in north Kerala. It has a mix of history, culture, mythology, ancient temples, old forts and battlements, pristine beaches and fabulous cuisine. And if you do go to Bekal, please stay at the Gitanjali Heritage. It's an experience worth remembering. We...

What we appreciated most was the introduction we were give to Hindu culture. We were taken to the local Hindu temple, to a wedding and to an incredible village Theyyam. Jagganarth, Latha and their son Arjun are more than happy to discuss their culture in all its aspects. On top of this we enjoyed a day on a houseboat and...

In true Hindu spirit, Jagannath and Latha and Arjun were exceptionally generous with their time and efforts to make our stay truly memorable and interesting. A choice of rest or reading in the lovely indoor balcony or activities like our visit to the families land including our first sight of rubber, coffee, pepper and nutmeg growing in situ. We also...

My travelling companion and I purposefully chose a heritage homestay above the luxury resorts in Bekal, and I'm very glad we did. Jagannath and his wonderful family welcomed us into their gorgeous heritage home and designed a fascinating cultural programme for our weekend. The house itself is very comfortable and clean, with great outdoor areas and plenty of space to...

We had a lovely stay in this lovely family home. The home cooked food was delicious, and local knowledge was great. We were taken to the family plantation in the hills. Also saw Arjjun;s video about Bekal fort.

This homestay has such a cosy, homely atmosphere. Jagannath and his wife were absolutely amazing hosts, they cooked us fantastic authentic food, their house was lovely and spotlessly clean we couldn't have asked for more. The house is in a wonderful location within the paddy fields, we went for a walk and met some of the local people who were...

Gitanjali Heritage is a true homestay which offers you an unique experience of staying at an idyllic local house of the host family. The place is located quite remotely although not far from Bekal. Mr. Jegannath, however, takes care of picking up you as well as other transportation to/from the their house. In this homestay you really feel welcome by...

It would be easy to suppose that this architectural gem (in its own lush gardens) is a smart hotel, but it is not. You are entering a family home, in which the hosts are a very warm, charming couple with lives of their own. They are very keen to please you and will arrange/ escort you on trips, if you...

We arrived just before Xmas for our 7 day stay in a traditional Keralan homestay with Jagannath & Lathea who made it a special time. Firstly Lathea cooking using fresh produce from the garden next to the house was prefect wholesome. We had no real plan when we arrived apart visiting a couple ashrams but Jagannath's knowledge and the family...

My wife and I stayed for 3 days at Gitanjali Heritage. Since the property itself is located in the rural part of the town, it would probably be challenging to get to by yourself. However, you can easily arrange for pickup by calling them ahead of time. We came across Gitajani Heritage in our Lonely Planet Guide book. Since the...
