Dewalokam is the ancestral farm of Alilakuzhy family an ancient Syrain Christian family of Kerala. We always want our guests to feel relaxed and happy. Our family will be delighted to show you the organic farm and tell you about the unusual trees and plants, many of which have medicinal uses. The word Dewalokam may be translated into “paradise”. Our concept is to retain the world as it was created by God, full of fruits and vegetables, milk and honey all produced organically without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. We are passionate about food and traditional Keralan cooking and our professional chefs will lovingly prepare three meals for you everyday, which is included in the price of your stay. If you have particular food requirements the chefs will be pleased to accommodate them. The area is tucked away beyond commercial rubber plantations in a secluded haven. Bounded by a tranquil river and nature reserve, you can choose to be as active or as relaxed as you wish, away from the bustle of tourist India. This is a place where you can truly wind down, swinging in the hammocks dotted between the trees on the estate or floating gently in the freshwater pool. Dewalokam is in the midlands (spice belt) of Kerala, the centre of spices for thousands of years. The farm has a rich collection of all spices like pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, ginger, turmeric and so on. This farm is not a tourist centre at all. Jose and Sinta, farmers by tradition and teachers by profession, started taking in guests to stay with them, because their elder brother Fr. Paul Alilakuzhy visited the family farm with his friends in Germany. Soon, friends and family encouraged them to open the farm for paying guests.
