MESSAGE FROM THE SECRETARY
The tourism scenario is on the verge of a shift from the traditional high cost plane to the warmth of a domesticated and personalized environment. The home stay mechanism rightly fits into the needs of tourists and brings synergic results into the tourism sector. The home stays have modem accommodation facilities, eco-friendly environment and homely hospitality to offer to any tourist. As a concept and as an operational model the redistributive, cost effective, eco-friendly and people to people dimensions of modem tourism is expected to promote home stay tourism.
Home stays provide a first hand experience for tourists to enjoy the rural life, the ethnic cuisine and local culture of the state.
It is a matter of great pleasure that the Home stay Association is launching a website containing details of various facilities and packages offered by home stay units. The collective efforts of the home stay units will definitely bring synergic results to the tourism sector Of KERALA
