“The best memories”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

Since I have been back from my tour of India, I have found this is the place I have talked about and recommended most. I loved the yoga sessions on the lawn, the ayurvedic massages, and the wonderful food. We were there on New Year's Eve and the family and staff made a wonderful dinner outside on the patio accompanied by fireworks. The accommodation was excellent, and we had the chance to be guided around the surrounding countryside by people who had spent their lives there, and obviously loved their village. The staff were so friendly and helpful, it was just a delight.

Dewalokam really is a mini Indian paradise. Jose and Sinta are wonderful hosts who are able to strike the perfect balance between being welcoming, attentive and informative yet allowing their guests to completely relax in a tranquil setting. Their staff were professional yet fun. We had a really lovely time. Having read the other reviews i can honestly say that there is little more to add other than a stay at Dewalokam is a must on any travellers' itinerary..it's wonderful.

Room Tip: Choose either a room in the main house with A/C or a non A/C room in the original bunkhouse as they...

During our two week holiday in Kerala we stayed at three of the supposedly best hotels in the region but none of them came close to the special qualities that the Dewalokam Farm Retreat had to offer. Everything about Dewalokam was perfect for us in every way; the house and grounds were beautiful, the staff friendly and welcoming, the food was superb and there was so much of interest to see and do while we there. Jose, Simta and their two children were charming and friendly and treated us like family friends rather than paying guests. We were sad when we had to leave this wonderful place and we really hope we get the opportunity to go back one day.

As I write this there are already 66 reviews for Dewalokam and they all rate it excellent. Seems to be too good to be true? Believe me it really is that good. The accommodation, food, surroundings, etc. are all fantastic but the hospitality from Jose and Sinta and their team is even better. Nothing is too much trouble for them.

I concur with the other reviewers. This is a wonderful place. We stayed for 2 nights in February 12 and we were sad to leave. Jose and Sinta and their staff could not be more attentive and are justifiably proud of their lovely organic farm and guest house. We will have lovely memories of Dewalokam, and hope to return some day.

Room Tip: all rooms very well appointed.
