Amma’s Hut

Amma means mother in Tamil. Steps away from the gorgeous Kallady Beach is Amma’s Hut, a simple and beautiful “Hut” with an “Amma” to take care of you. Let Amma cook your breakfast on firewood while you enjoy a sandy birdy garden. A sunrise delicacy… Have you ever stayed in a hut with a looooong stretch of sandy beach just around the corner? If the answer to this question is no, then this is the right place for you to experience it!


The hut can comfortably accommodate 2 to 3 people.

The room is non A/C, equipped with a double bed, a fan and a mosquito net. A single bed can be added on request.

A fully fenced outdoor bathroom enables you to shower in privacy under the trees. Western style toilets are available.

Guests live in the hut, while Amma lives in a small house just behind.

The Hut is situated in a private sandy garden where you can enjoy reading, bird watching, playing with Amma’s cats and so on.

The small veranda in front of the Hut is the perfect place to have your meals in a natural and relaxing environment.


Amma lives in the next house and spends some time with her guests. Her level of English is so far probably a bit better than your level of Tamil, but we are sure you will find ways to communicate together. In case of need, East N’ West on Board will assist you over the phone for translation…


Double: 2500 Rs per day.

Triple: 3000 Rs per day.


Amma will prepare your meals (local food) with advance request. Check the menu!


Beach lovers should find their needs fulfilled a few steps away from Amma’s Hut on our vast sandy breezy lovely Kallady Beach.

We’ll also be able to keep you busy and joyful with a variety of activities organized by East N’ West on Board, such as bicycle rides, cooking classes, fishing classes on the lagoon, tours in rural villages, etc.

The homestay is equipped with a water filter that filters and chlorinates the water, making it safe drinking water. Please help us to decrease the plastic pollution by refilling your bottles and drinking the water provided free of charge by Amma.
