Welcome to Riverland's homestay. You could also call it a vacation home, a budget resort or even a chalet. Let the pictures speak for itself. Our whole aim is to provide the guests (Families/Groups) with a pleasant stay at our home facing the mighty Periyar River. The exterior of the homestay reflects a traditional look and the interiors boast an ultra modern yet a very simple & subtle feel. We have a very quiet neighborhood and all you would hear would be birds and the flowing water. You could just relax at the balconies of the room facing the magnificent river or take a dip in the outdoor pool or go kayaking, swimming or set on a guided boat ride in the Periyar. Another unique program includes staycation for ladies in groups which will be managed entirely by lady staff / Lady host. It will be available on special request through call/email. We offer all meals from breakfast to dinner in local/international cuisines.


About the host

Greetings to all.

Me and my wife had been abroad for over 25 years and has settled back in our hometown for a relaxed retirement life. I was born and brought up on the banks of periyar river and has countless memories with this place, right from my childhood.
It has always been a dream for us to share the beauty of our place and the positive energy it provides to people all around the world.. 
And, thats how Riverland's Homestay came into existence.
I spend my time here in the homestay doing gardening and is really fond of fishing. I use several techniques from chinese baskets to fishing rod's and fishing nets. If lucky you could also savor the fresh local seafood cuisines.
Our next dream is to built a neat and well planned animal farm with zero waste and maintain a number of organic fruit/vegetables farms adjacent to the homestay. It should help me self sustain, provide guests with freshest resources and i could sell off the surplus items in the local community.

We wish to provide a safe, clean, relaxing and joyful stay for everyone and requests for everyone's support for the same.

So check-in, sit-back and relax.........
