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.

... some beers for the guys. The beers werent a problem, but when we asked them for the vodka the shop assistant looked confused and told us no one bought this as it was to expensive. We could see the bottle on the shelf behind him and were curious what the price was as being in India nothing is that expensive. We asked again for the price and reluctantly the man showed us on a calculator. It was 950rs (£9.50) for a litre bottle, so very cheap by UK standards. ...
