A charming home stay, given a warm welcome for the one night we stayed here - decent home cooked dinner on late arrival was no trouble and breakfast was okay too. Room very spacious, lots of antique furniture. Toilet/shower was quite small and basic, okay for one night only. We didn't have the time to pop into the nearby village centre but it was within walking distance and looked like it was worth a visit - we were heading off for an overnight boat trip, on reflection would have preferred to have just done a day boat trip and stayed longer at Tharavad.

Next port of call was just down the coast to a beachside ashram - yes, really - at Amritipuri. This is the international HQ of Sri Anatamandamayi Devi, known to the world simply as 'Amma'. She's also called 'The Hugging Mother', on account of the massive number of physical blessings (darshan) ...
... falling in. Once onboard we realised how nice the boat was with a lovley dinning area and three cute bedrooms that had ensuites. We couldnt quite believe that this was just for the four of us for the next couple of days. We set sail with just the captain and two chefs onboard. We sailed along for a while taking in the magical views of the backwaters sitting dangling our feet over the edge of the boat. The captian then let all of us in turn have a go at ...
