Olappamanna Mana, in a 20-acre eco-friendly atmosphere, would be an interesting place for tourists who want something out of the ordinary
for those who want to explore the Kerala countryside and the way of life there, for those who want to know more about the cultural heritage of the State, and for those who want to learn the nuances of Kathakali as performing art form. Olappamanna Mana is for those on the look out for a real heritage home-stay as different from star hotel accommodation. Olappamanna Mana is also for those who want to savor the nuances of wholesome, delectable vegetarian cuisine, as only the traditional Namboothiri household can deliver .
Conceived and established in 2006 by Mr.O.N.Damodaran Namboodiripad

From 2017, with the untimely demise of Mr.Damodaran, the homestay is managed by his wife duly supported by his son Navaneeth and daughter-in-law Vani
