10 Top Homestays in India

Glenora cottage, Wayanad, Kerala.

Sharell Cook

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to stay in a luxurious tree house, Glenora Homestay in the Wayanad district of Kerala is the place to find out! The two very comfortable cottages have been newly constructed on concrete stilts, into the side of a slope on the hosts' substantial 90 acre coffee and spice plantation. The balcony of each cottage overhangs the valley, providing a deep and uninterrupted view into the lush plantation. It's tranquility at it's best.

Activities: Cooking lessons, coffee estate tours, swimming in a river in the plantation, trekking to waterfalls, mountain treks such as to Chembra Peak, bird watching, visiting Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary, visiting tribal colonies and seeing traditional arts.

Special Features: The view of the sunrise and valley, and the fresh estate coffee.

Rate: 5,500 rupees ($115) per night for a double, including breakfast.
