Namaskaram and Welcome.

Tatvamasi Homestay 

Tatvamasi Homestay is nestled within the Western Ghats, on the erstwhile land of the Travancore Kingdom. The homestay is next to one of the most iconic waterfalls in Kanyakumari, adjacent to a sacred Shiva Temple. It is located amidst rubber plantations which provide beautiful shade and greenery. Guests can enjoy morning nature walks through the plantation. Both morning and evening Sandhya hours are accented with the sweet chorus of birdsongs. 

The homestay offers Temple-Tour Packages as well as general stay booking (open January 2024). Tatvamasi features traditional home-cooked Kerala meals. This cuisine is exclusive and unique to the Kerala and Travancore areas.

Pets are not allowed in the homestay.
