We spent three nights at Banyan Tree homestay and were sad to leave. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with decks to relax on and to admire the surrounding trees and views of the edge of the Western Ghats. We enjoyed our tour of the farm with our host and expanded our knowledge of crops and trees. Mrs. Prabhu is... More

Firstly this farm stay is not in Coimbatore as mentioned in the contact page of their website and also in TripAdvisor. It’s near a village called Sethumadai which is about 72 kms from Coimbatore via Pollachi. This cocoa and coconut plantation is close to the Anamalai mountain range. The place is serene and consists of two different blocks. The first... More

We went as a group of four families to this homestay. The property is beautiful, wonderful location, well laid out, with a lot of greenery around. We found our way from Coimbatore station to the homestay quite easily. Coimbatore-Pollachi was by bus (empty, quite comfortable, Rs 23), if you don't have too much luggage this is recommended. Then took a... More

Do not stay there!This is a farm stay or a home stay in a farm though it ok but the owner Mr. Prabhu is a very very greedy man. You can get a much better homestay with much better amenities at a much lesser price . Hence, I would not recommend this place at all to Indians, Foreigners who come... More

We stayed here for one night but got to enjoy lunch, dinner and breakfast. Lunch was a treat, served in the dining room of Mr Prabhu's wonderful old villa-farmhouse.

the place has a rugged but homely look to it. the people are really helpful. the guide is pleasing if you plan to go looking for birds or take a walk. the guides knowledge about birds is not very up to date but the plantation visit is worth a night stay.
