We've been in Aranyakam for a few days in December. We were lucky to book one of the treehuts, and I must say that it was one of the best places we've stayed in India. The location is fantastic, very quiet and all surrounded by nature. The treehuts are separated from the main building which is really good if you want to have some peace and enjoy the sounds of the jungle. The huts have everything you need (spacious, clean and very comfortable).
Neema and Rajesh are excellent hosts, they really make you feel like at home and they will take car of everything you need (arrange taxi's, jeep tours, etc..). I shouldn't forget to mention about the food, as it was awesome! Classic Keralan food with a lot of varieties, everyday we were eager to see with which delicious dish Neema would surprise us! We tried to be every day for lunch and dinner as we didn't want to miss out on her food! Even one night we were late (due to a day out with a jeep) and she kept some food for us, very sweet!
I would definitely recommend this homestay if you are looking for a relax and re-energizing holidays. Is not a fancy hotel or the type of "resort" kind of place but in my opinion is much better! Thanks for the lovely treatment! Floris & Barbara
