Story

Amaryllis Farmstay is a green nature sanctuary, nestled among the lush, rich landscape of the Wayanad Hills. Overlooking the verdant valley, reservoir, and hills, the view from the grounds is what made Ranjini and Victor Dey fall in love with the place and build their family home at this location back in 2008.  

Having worked on various plantations from a young age, Victor and Ranjini have been hosting friends and family for many years. It was a natural progression for them to then open up their own house as a homestay. In fact, Amaryllis is sort of a pioneer of Homestays in Wayanad. At Amaryllis, the garden is a veritable treasure trove of flora and a variety of spices, fruits, and vegetables across the grounds. The homestay also gets its name from the first plant that Victor and Ranjini planted on this land. The living areas are all aesthetically done up and filled with art and curios from their travels. The rooms in the main house are spacious and comfortable, some boasting spectacular views. You even have the option of staying in a tree house! There is a wonderful infinity pool with incredible views of the Western Ghats. The food is a delightful mix of regional and international flavors which Ranjini personally prepares. The charming hosts love having conversations with guests and often the dinner hours can stretch late over a drink or two. The four family pet dogs - Sultan, Amigo, Khimchi, and Jackie will certainly make you feel at home even if you are not so much of a dog person. A stay at Amaryllis is tailor-made for connecting with nature amongst warm hospitality.
