Meena was a really great host to us, giving us a lot of local knowledge about Thekkady and insights about life in India. Always helpful and giving us advice where to go. The meals were the best we had during our trip so far, and was great to learn some cooking skills while watching meena cook and explain the recipes.... More

I wanted a cooking class that wasn't one of the commercial ones which are more of a cooking show than a class. I decided correct and went with Meena. Her extraordinary skill with food showed and she originally cooked by her mom which I always appreciate since it brings down family recipes generation after generation and she also did something...

Meena is an amazing host, she spent a lot of time showing us around and taking us places we would never have got a chance to see. The food is easily some of best we had in India. We had some very memorable trips during our few days there, a Safari, wild elephants and a mad bus ride to Tamil... More

The place is serene, comfortable and clean. A gem of a retreat tucked away from the hustle and bustle but when you need to access shopping or a trip to the town , you're stones throw. Meena is an excellent host and even greater cook. It really felt like a home away from home.

This has to be one of the more beautiful places in the world, and Meena will make sure you get the most out of your stay. Lovely homestay set in beautiful lush gardens. The highlights here, apart from the gorgeous setting, are Meena's cooking (amazing), conversation (highly engaging) and her knowledge of local attractions and amenities. If you do stay... More
