Really enjoyed our 2 days - wished it had been a longer stay. The food is really tasty and plentiful - you won't starve here. Found the cooking demonstration fascinating and are now working our way through the cook book! Do have an Ayurvedic massage - so relaxing. Jose and Sinta are wonderful hosts - and we enjoyed chatting to...

I don't quite know where to start having just returned home from the most magical week at Dewalokum. We were a part of a big group on a yoga retreat and it goes down as one of the most special week's I've had. The setting is stunning and a part of my soul is still in a hammock looking over...

Dear Karen, We are a bit embarrassed about all the superlatives used in your review. Every thing has to be ken with a pinch of salt. But we appreciate all the positive energy in your review. It is true that people feel a bit relaxed at Dewalokam and many get recharged in a small way. We are wondering how and...

Not having visited India before, this was a lovely introduction to this exciting country. It was a little bigger than expected but that enables them to have a 'critical mass' for all their activities. It is cleverly eco-friendly, and this is explained in their spice tour, the accommodation is very comfortable with everything that you require. There is a small...

Thank you for appreciating Dewalokam and your stay with us. It is very simple and 'comfortable' only to a certain degree.

We stayed here for 2 nights before flying home at the end of our holiday in India. It was so peaceful and relaxing after a busy couple of weeks touring. There were several activities to take part in if you wished, we enjoyed the spice walk and the forest walk and then swimming in the pool and river was wonderful....

One of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. Sitting down by the river and listening to all the very exotic sounding bird song was almost enchanting in its effect. The owner was so so friendly, which a very impressive laugh, the food was great and the trips they run from the farm are very interesting.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dewalokam is a Homestay, a B&B, and a Specialty Lodging all merged into one, in an organic farm, in the deep interiors of Kerala. You are surrounded on all sides by the bountiful nature, and the atmosphere is filled with birdsongs and the sound of water rippling in the river. It is a unique place with no parallels. The river front property, enveloped by the rain forests of Kerala, produces milk and honey, fruits and vegetables, eggs and meat all in a truly organic way. The food, accommodation and the environment make it a true paradise.We offer Yoga, Ayurveda and Cooking Packages. ... more   less
