Thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay at Ayana’s. Very warm welcome. In particular, enjoyed spending time in the kitchen with the family getting hands-on (not compulsory!) with the cooking and learning about the local food. Recommended.

I stayed here as part of an Intrepid tour and it was just lovely. The owners are charming and knowledgeable with a commitment to the community and sustainable ecotourism. Excellent food, peaceful location right on the water with a big porch to watch all the river traffic.

Beautiful setting, great rooms. We arrived and left by boat. Enjoyed an all too brief calm time here. Staff very welcoming and hospitable. Food wasn't quite to my taste, but others liked it well enough.

I cannot imagine staying outside your own city can be so easy. I visited Kerala and stayed Ayana's Homestay. It was a fabulous experience. Cheers to Vinit Nair. Received proper guidance from the caretaker.

"Best place for homestay feeling"
"Best views, calm and homely atmosphere."
"All rooms looked similar and were adequate but it was not welcoming as a Homestay should be"
"Bring mosquito spray whichever room you have!"
"My room was facing east - back with country side view not water; but it was cooler because it is not facing west."
US$16 - US$41 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
