Varikatt Heritage

Homestay in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)

Trivandrum’s most charismatic place to stay is the 250-year-old home of Colonel Roy Kuncheria. It’s a wonderful Indo-Saracenic bungalow with four rooms flanked by verandahs facing a pretty garden. Every antique – and the home itself – has a family story attached. Lunch and dinner are available (₹500).
