Welcome Center


A heartful welcome to Bella!

Bella Homestay is run by an Indian European couple Biju and Jayashri. Biju is a native Keralite with over 12 years of experience in tourism and Jayashri is an artist by profession, now sharing her life between ashram and homestay. The house is fashioned to make you feel at home rather than in a hotel, with a beautiful decor, peace and comfortable large space to rest.

Bella is the only homestay in Alleppey running almost entirely on solar energy. We care for nature and beauty that shows in our garden and interiors. We offer 5 very comfortable rooms and can accomodate up to 12 people.

- Our house is powered in 90 % by solar energy making us the only eco-friendly homestay in Alleppey!

-We segregate waste, recycle paper, plastic and glass

-We use a biogaz plant for cooking  and an ecological system of processing the waste water

-Nowadays water becomes as precious as gold. Low water pressure in bathroom taps is to reduce unnecessary water wastage.

With love,
