This is a beautifully designed and furnished house situated in a beautiful cool and tranquil location. We loved the traditional architecture of the house; the internal courtyard with the rooms opening up to the thoughtfully landscaped gardens, seen through glass free sliding doors from the bedrooms that make you feel like you are sleeping close to nature but with the...

Very simple bedrooms in an incredible building that dates back many years with antique furniture in all of the common rooms. Fantastic place to get away from it all and well worth the journey. Excellent place to do Yoga and for guided walks around the estate. Lovely staff and a brilliant dinning experience.

Rajakkad was passed... More

The Rajakkad Estate was superbly situated in the Palani Hills. Robesh and his staff looked after us very well and took us on numerous treks through the surrounding plantations. The food was magnificent and if you are interested in design you will be very impressed by the hotel itself.

After a long and winding trip up a mountain, through a small village then a farm, arrival is at a charming heritage lodge nestled amongst a tropical backdrop. The house is very tastefully decorated with large comfortable clean bedrooms. Here is a place to totally unwind in the many hammocks slung between trees, listening to the bird call and marvelling...

This is a dream hotel. Small, friendly. A beautiful old palace where you relax into calm after the hustle of the cities in the Tamil Nadu plain. The staff are friendly and attentive. The food is delicious. The journey here from Dindigul or Madurai is well worth it, too, as it takes you off the beaten track and through small... More

Wonderful two nights in this restored traditional Keralan summer palace high in the Palani Hills. The vegetation and bird life are exceptional with a tremendous peace enveloping the place at night. The welcome from Robash and the staff was warm and the food was superb. We were lucky enough to be there with Crispin and Jeremy who, with Robash, have... More

Where in the world can you sleep with you door open to the balmy night air? Rajakkad. Surrounded by the beautiful natural vegetation of the hills, in simple comfortable rooms with delicious food and discreet attentive service, all enhanced by the therapeutic massage and yoga of the brilliant Lazy Buddha pair, what more could one wish for?
