This is a very quaint and beautiful bungalow some 10 km from Kattapana town, an hour's drive from Idukki dam, on the Thekkady-Munnar road. The area is scenic and green, and the plantations and chirping of crickets around the place give it a very Kerala-esque feel. They have maintained the property very well, kudos to the management for that. They...

It was one of our best experience at a homestay. Excellent spacious rooms great food and the plantation homestay was an one time experience. The kids also had a great time. Every nook and corner was neat. A matching beautiful garden with flowers in full bloom with fruit trees. A must tryout we vouch for it.

We were so tired after the journey to Kumily, wanted good sleep before visiting the sight seeing places. The hotel hospitality was very good and treated us well. Their service was also good in the hotel. We had food issue but we managed that outside. Rooms were good and big.
