About the Homestay


Welcome to Akkara! Here at the riverside of the Meenachil, come experience a walk down memory lane by living in a 200 year old mansion with unique rooms housing period designs and furniture. Take a walk in pristine nature to he chirping of birds and insects and enjoy the warm hospitality of your host, Mrs. Shanta Kurien. Explore the homestay experience, so different from a cold hotel room, and dig in to the delicious local Travancore Syrian Chistian cuisine.

Enjoy the Crisp Air


Five acres of local fruits & vegetables, interspersed with Pepper, Coffee, Ginger, Turmeric and Nutmeg trees become a sight for sore eyes. You find yourself surrounded by water on three sides, and far away from the maddening crowds. This is the space you have been looking for: your love of natural beauty, immersed in history and culture.

The Intimacy of a Homestay


Spend an evening and a chai with the Kuriens, lost in the stories of their family as it grew and shifted, colouring the memories of their home, your home, for the duration of your stay.

Activities at Akkarã
