Kuttikkanam is a nice place to spend a vacation. I have stayed there once with a group of friends and we all really enjoyed. It is one of the best places to stay overnight on the way to Thekkady.

Last year, we were looking for some good homestays in Kuttikkanam but didn't find the Thushaaram at that time. Is it a new homestay? Do they allow bachelors/big groups?

Thushaaram is pretty old vacation home stays in Kuttikkanam. but it was used exclusively by the owners until recently. Only recently they started giving it on rent for guests. Yes, they do allow bachelors and groups as long as the neighbours are not disturbed and guests are responsible people. Their rate is Rs 3,000/- per night as of now. They have 2 bedrooms which have sleep 4 adults comfortably. A couple of extra people should be able to use the couch and other facilities to sleep. I recently visited the place and I can assure that it is one of the best homestays in Kuttikkanam area.
