My wife and I came here on one of our stops for our honeymoon. Shukkrr and family welcomed us and made us feel at home from the start. They were super helpful with tips on what we can do and how we can plan our days. And don't get us started about the food... They are wizard's in the kitchen; the food was so good, we ate so much traditional food, we've taken some recipes and will try them at home! The rooms are super comfortable, and there is no need for A/C. Because you're in the mountains, it's was cool in the evenings and very few insects as we were there in the dry season. The views from the rooftop were brilliant; after days spent trekking in the jungle, it was nice to come back to the homestay and chill out on the hammocks! It's very well located, near the national park and other cool things. One final note, Shukkrr and family were incredible. Honestly one of the best experiences we've ever had. We're definitely recommending this place to all our friends and family, and for sure we are coming back as three days was definitely not enough!!

My family and me stayed at Panthalams homestay for 3 days. I sincerely admit that I didn't even have one complaint about the place. It's clean, spacious and homely. The food they serve and their hospitality is beyond good. The owner and family made sure that we had nothing to complaint about. They were like family to us. They guided us with their heart about the lesser known tourist spots and attractions in Thekkady. I am happy to say that it was our luck we didn't chose to stay in a hotel or any other lodge. They are committed to our hospitality and well being. Without Panthalams homestay and its team my family and me wouldn't have had such an eventful, beautiful and amazing holiday. Every second spend with them will aleays be remembered.

The host of this property was very helpful, and seemed to always be on hand to offer help and advice where needed. The views from the top balcony were great and it was a peaceful place to sit and watch the wildlife (monkeys, mongoose, boar, woodpeckers and a multitude of other birds). Although there was no air con, with the overhead fan, it was cool enough to be comfortable. The bathroom was very clean!

Spent three nights here. Very relaxing stay. Host is extremely helpful with suggestions for trips and restaurants in the town. Also generous with his time, he drove us directly to one of our excursions. Tasty breakfast, tried both the Indian and continental options. Room tip: go for the upper rooms at the front. They have a large communal balcony with seating areas for each room, and great view over the valley towards the Tiger sanctuary. Rooms are spacious and clean. Recommended!
