I booked this homestay during my last week visit to Periyar and Thekkady, after reading the reviews from others. But after staying here, I should say that I was not wrong. I visited with my family (having one 4.5 years old kid) and we all are overwhelmed by the hospitality that we received here. Homestay consists of few small cottages having small open area where kid can play and you can spend time chatting or relaxing. We were very much interested to check the Kerala Marshal Art show - I called and inquired Faizal (owner of the HomeStay) on booking process of the tickets. He not only helped me with the information, but blocked tickets for us. Not only that, he offered us to drop to the location in his own car. Another good part was the morning breakfast which was arranged in the open area. Food was awesome in taste. We could taste some proper Kerala dish. Overall it's a really great experience. Thanks to the Stay Melody team for such great hospitality.

I booked this homestay during my very recent Kerala trip after reading good reviews on TA. location is on the Munnar bypass road and market is nearby. they provide two types of rooms, in cottage. ground floors have large cottage while first floor has small cottage rooms. better to avoid first floor because issue of low pressure in water tapes there. rooms are okay, not well maintained as are bathrooms. they have few recreational facilities in compound with open air dining area. they didn't offer food on order other than breakfast because it's small family run home stay. in breakfast they provide traditional Kerala foods which are okay in taste. omlette were good. staff (a single all in one person!) was cooperative and prompt. overall a nice economical place to stay at thekkady.

It is a beautiful place to stay if you're ever in Thekkedy. The rooms are beautiful and elegant and as you step out of your room, you are greeted by swans roaming around and there is a ground water pond outside with many different kinds of fish. They also have those tiny fish which are used for pedicure, so you can relax with your feet dipped in the pond. Looking around you will see many different types is plants and trees ranging from bamboo to palm trees. Overall, my stay in this hotel was fantastic.

We had a family trip of 3 days to Thekkady last week and I have chosen Stay melody based on Tripadvisor rating. Actually it was more than the numbers mentioned and I would rate them 5 out of 5. Their Hospitality is awesome, Food and atmosphere is very good. Fazal guided and supported us from the beginning till the end. During our visit there was issue in Boating between the Jeep drivers and forest officers, For our safety, Fazal arranged one human activisitist Sunil to stay with us during the trip. Private Water falls, Elephant bath, Jeep safari, Rose park, Spices plantation visit, Kathakali shows were very nice. Overall we felt happy and we enjoyed a lot. Great hospitality by Fazal, Althof , Suresh, sunil and team. Thanks for the memorable trip.
