Amaryllis Homestay & Farm
Substantial farmstead homestay in the mountains of Wayanad. Special is the word! Tree Villas & Swimming Pool included!
Calling Amaryllis a homestay sets the bar pretty high as this home from home set high in the hills of Wayanad is more like a boutique hotel with its fabulous views over the lake which can be enjoyed from your room, from one of the treehouses or from the swimming pool.
The homestay has a total of five rooms as well as two luxury tree Villas. Each room is named after one of the flowers that is found in the extensive garden. The rooms mainly overlook the front of the property with its terrace and swimming pool. The architectural style is traditional Kerala with an overlay of modernism expressed through the use of woods and clean lines.
This is a homestay and not a hotel, so you sit down to eat with the family and can enjoy a real sense of Kerala life courtesy of Victor and Ranjini who have spent five hard years turning an abandoned Coffey and rubber farm into a wonderful home. They traced roads, sank Wells, landscaped the garden and planted a variety of new crops. Such dedication and determination is a real tribute to the couple and when you stay with them you will get to experience and enjoy their love and respect for the mountains and environment of South India's hill stations.
This is not only a home, it is also a working Plantation with a dazzling variety of crops being grown and harvested: nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, cardamom, Coffee, mangosteen, lychee, mango, papaya, chikkoo, banana, pomegranate, rambotan, durian, avocado... As you might expect, I wonder around the Plantation with your hosts is both a pleasure and an education. If you choose to leave this little paradise behind then varies a great deal to do nearby and again you will find your hosts a fund of knowledge on what where and how to get there.
There are two treehouses: both come with bathrooms and one even features a twin bathroom. They are substantial and very romantic as you might expect.
The terrace suite which is on the top floor of the property is over 700 ft.² and opens onto a large veranda with its own private terrace. The ensuite bathroom not only has a shower cubicle but also a Jacuzzi. The Jacuzzi is separated from the outside world by a wall of glass so you can sit back and relax while taking in the wonderful view.
All the other rooms have their own style, with each having a character all of its own.

How Karma Kerala Hotels Rates WorkThe price of hotel rooms changes from day to day and season to season so we check for each customer to see what the best rate will be depending on their requirement, length of stay and so on. If you want a wonderful stay, why not find our what we can do for you.
What does Cheapest MeanPeople assume that the cheapest rates apply to all rooms so they book the cheapest! But, they are missing a trick on this: hotels have great rooms and rooms on the wrong side of the tracks and so they offer out the low quality rooms to online portals who don't care about quality, just the price of the room. We, on the other hand, tend to focus on quality so we ask for specific rooms that may be more expensive but damn, they are much better too!
Never Knowingly Beaten on PriceWe know people are nervous and ask themselves: can this be true? So we make an offer to you: if you can find the room cheaper, we will match your quote. That means you have nothing to worry about and you get the best local advice.
