This is our first experience with homestay and were originally sceptical. But, it turned out very well at the Pamba Heritage Villa! It is very well located along the river with clean and comfortable rooms. We were given a warm welcome by the very friendly host Rajeev and his family. The home-cooked food served were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed...

We booked our stay at the Pamba Heritage Villa last minute after we had already arrived and stayed one night at a hotel near the Cochin airport. Shortly after I made reservations online, Rajeev emailed asking if we'd like to have his driver come pick us up. We were very much obliged as we hadn't quite decided how we were...

We spent a night at the main villa as our last stop during our Kerala tour. What we have experienced here is very much in line with many positive comments made by other reviewers. Great location with very good view and peaceful environment (facing the river and next to a paddy field), spacious, clean room, filtered water, delicious home cooked...

As others have said the food is excellent, we stayed on a...

Pamba Heritage Villa was to Indian home stays what the best boutique hotels offer us in North America and Europe. We felt we have discovered a new category of the best Indian lodging in the future. Our 110 year old converted granary heritage rooms were 4*. Rajeev's personal hospitality accompanying us on walks though the local village, in arranging a...

The food was unbelievable here and there was a lot of it. The hotel is nice and quiet but unless you're willing to hang out in a hammock, there wasn't much to do. We took a boat ride along the backwaters to kill time. The room was too dark for reading, but had some history. The owner was nice but...

ThePambaHeritage, Owner at The Pamba Heritage Villa, responded to this review

Thanks for the review. From the name and profile I could not recognise the guest. But I think he misunderstood our Homestay as a hotel. When we have guests in our Homestay we always think they do visit us to get to know about our culture history etc. And we can make out how much you would like involve in...

This was the perfect place to stay if you want to learn about how the real Kerala ticks. The host, Rajeev, is a wonderful source of local knowledge and could not have been more helpful.The accommodation is authentic and the location, on the banks of the Keralan backwaters ,was absolutely wonderful.Rajeev's mother is a brilliant traditional cook and I can't...

We stayed for a week from 16 Feb 2017. We had a wonderful time, very peaceful, great food, really beautiful and interesting location. Rajeev is a genial and engaging host. We loved the walk to the ferry and the journey into Alleppey (Byriani at Kream Korner is a must!). 4 stars not 5 because 1) the houseboaters which docked there...

The room was dark with reading lamps useless for reading. Only way to brighten the room up was to use the bare fluorescent light on the wall opposite the bed, which is just ugly. The food was fantastic, the beds were comfortable. Tricky to find in a cab. Very quiet and nice view of the houseboats right in front of...

Our stay at the Pamba Heritage Villa was exceptional. It provides a quiet, scenic, relaxed atmosphere where you can watch river traffic, birds, and riverside activities and walk to local villages. The owner, Rajeev, gave us a lot of attention and asked for our preferences in food and activities. He explained the local cuisine and how it was prepared. His...
