WiFi didn't work from room but did just outside on the terrace. We had a top floor room with a nice balcony giving onto the open plain where we saw wild boar and a... More

We reached this place after a long day and had to leave very early next morning. The host couple were very courteous and helped us. The Periyar tiger reserve is almost their backyard. While we were leaving at 3 AM we could hear animal and bird sounds. I wish we could have stayed here a little more. The rooms were... More

My group and I stayed at the Konark for 1 night. The Konark has nice boat inspired decor around the whole place. And another part of the Konark is a little shop right underneath the home stay! The shop's owner sold great handcrafted goods and was not pushy about us to buy anything. What struck me about this place was... More

We stayed at Konark as a base for exploring the Thekkady area including the safari park (just 200m up the road). Rani (the owner) was so kind and accommodating to our needs, as well as an excellent chef (try the egg curry)! Would recommend in a heartbeat!

Ram and Rani are fantastic hosts and the shower is amazing. The best part is the Periyar National Park in the back garden, so you can sit on the balcony and do some wildlife spotting over a great Indian breakfast. Would highly recommend!

My husband and I stayed at Konak Homestay for 4 days in August 2016. We chose this homestay because of its closeness to the Periyar Reserve, and we were not disappointed. The homestay is only a few moments down the road, and also a very short walk to get into town and walk around, sample the restaurants. Rani and Ram... More
