Hidden away in coffee plantation is this beauty of a home stay, which has to be seen to be believed. We already thought the cottages and balconies of the main historic plantation building were gorgeous and spacious. We loved watching a thunderstorm sweeping through the area from the sheltered terrace. However nothing beats the location and view of the two...

My friend and I stayed here last week and wanted to share with everyone what a gem of a place this is!!.. The location is somewhat off the beaten track with no signs from the main road but have faith it's there and it's wonderful! We stayed 3 nights in the large treehouse - which has the most amazing view...

Neema and Rajesh are the perfect hosts. They take care and interact with the guest all the time. The entire property is amazing, but the attraction is the treehut. What a great experience to live in a treehut overlooking the valley, listening to the nature sounds, see the fog creep up at dawn. We loved it. The hut is also...

This was one trip we will never forget. Nature at its best with hosts who make you feel comfortable and have taken pains to build this place. We started with a drive in peak summers of Bangalore and Kerala but ended up feeling so cold that on the last day, we were actually waiting for sun in the morning. Yes,...

We booked the deluxe tree house and what a good decision that was. The acomodation is pretty basic but the views are jaw-dropping and the place has loads of character. Well worth the price. Also, the food was the best we had in our 3 weeks in Kerala. Truly outstanding, especially when the spice is turned up. The nearby National...

Rajesh and Neema have created an amazing homestay from this ancestral coffee plantation. We stayed in the main house, which is handsome and airy with spacious verandahs and wide wood planks. The rooms have vintage, hand painted ceramic tiles and a private porch looking right out onto the coffee fields with a mountain backdrop. The property has many places to...

We stayed in the deluxe treehut for 2 nights and were totally blown away by the location. The views are jaw-dropping, and so was the accomodation (we had an upper and a lower balcony!!), absolutely loved it. Neema and Rajesh were lovely, as was the food. We'd recommend it to anyone visiting Wayanad. Pure peace and relaxation, wonderful.

After an extended visit at Aranyakam, I hardly have the words to describe my experience. In short, it offers rustic, forested India with the comforts of a traditional Keralan home. But Rajesh and Neema provide more than the mere creature comforts one might find at a typical hotel. Here, you are given their time and attention, extraordinary homecooked Kerala cuisine,...

We stayed three nights with Rajesh and Neema at Aranyakam coffee plantation. The rooms were simple and clean, the food was delicious and the ambience was perfectly peaceful. This is well established, and while it isn't cheap, it is reasonable in today's market. Contrary to the information in the Rough Guide, food was not included in the price. They serve...
