KARITHANAM is our family name. This Malayalam word loosely means ‘the place where issues are heard and settled’. We are one among the ancient Syrian Christian families of Kerala. Tradition indicates that St. Thomas, a disciple of Jesus Christ brought his message of love to the shores of Kerala in the first century itself.
In Karithanam you are special guests of our family. Ms. Preethy Thomas is your main host along with her husband, Uday Nazare. Their Hotel and Business Management education background and rich experience in hospitality industry, domestic and international, ensures that you are in professional hands with that home touch and warmth of a house.
You may allow us to close the discussion on your FUSION Homestay experience by quoting our motivator:
“But there is another type of FUSION that can happen to any of you at Karithanam which only nature can provide when you become ready without your knowledge, consent and beyond your free will …..
THE LAZY, COZY, IDLE TIME YOU SPENT AT KARITHANAM STARING AT THE DISTANT STARS SO NEAR TO YOU, LYING FLAT ON THE TERRACE BATHING IN THE MILKY MOOLIGHT OR BLINKING ALONG WITH THE FIREFLIES ON A PITCH DARK NO-MOON DAY ON AN OCCASIONAL POWER FAILURE NIGHT CAN PLAY A MAGIC ON YOU, SURPASSING YOUR WILDEST DREAMS.”
Preethy and Uday, Your Hosts – Here culture and religion started blending when Preethy from an orthodox Kerala Christian family and Uday, the Mumbai Hindu boy tied the knots and decided to bring up a family. Their rich and varied religious and culture background will give that special experience of India in Kerala itself.
