Amban Heritage Home : A Great Place To Stay In Kannur, Kerala

We were driving from Goa to Kochi and picked on Kannur in Kerala, as a mid way stop over for the night. After some searching around, we discovered Amban Heritage Home. And boy, did we love it!

Amban Heritage Home was built in 1904. The rooms are small, very affordable, but very clean and so are the bathrooms. The property is run by the family and the food is excellent. We had some awesome prawns, fish, rice, chutneys, veggies etc, all true Kannur traditional style.

We changed our plans of driving to Kochi, Kerala, because of the terrible traffic on NH17, and decided of going to Kotagiri in Tamil Nadu instead. Suresh was kind enough to suggest an absolutely beautiful drive to Coonoor, something our mapping devices could never think of. Thank you Suresh!

Suresh and Sudha own and run this beautiful 104 year old property with their family.

The quaint verandah with thick wooden pillars polished to a nice shine.

The drive from Amban back to the road.
If you have the time, you can laze around!
One last shot.

    • Thanks Nisha! The credit goes to Shikha! She has the knack to find the most amazing places, and all this while we are still driving.
