Detailed Info

The word 'Dewalokam' literally means 'paradise'. The retreat aims to retain the natural environment and charm. The organic farm in Dewalokam is the ancestral farm of Alilakuzhy family, an ancient Syrian Christian family of Kerala. The farm is used to produce fruits and vegetables, milk and honey all of which are produced organically without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. The professional chefs in Dewalokam prepare delightful meals for the guests. The chefs are also ready to prepare food that you personally want.

Dewalokam is tucked away beyond commercial rubber plantations in a secluded haven. The retreat is bound by a beautiful river and a serene nature reserve. You can choose either to be active or just relax during your stay. There are hammocks dotted amidst the tress and also a freshwater pool. The water is heated with solar power, vegetables grown with home-made compost, chickens and goats fed on vegetable waste and methane from the cow's manure is recovered to provide gas for cooking.
