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

This old Kerala traditional building is situated in a wonderful location in the hills on a coffee plantation.Small terraces are dotted around the gardens and are ideal for relaxing and watching the multitude of wild birds. Breakfast and lunch are served on your favourite terrace and dinner is communal around a large table where guests can exchange stories and experiences.... 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?

A fantastic place to stay and well worth the journey to get here. The estate is in a coffee plantation surrounded by beautiful trees and flowers. Our room was simple but roomy, and it was wonderful to sleep with the full wall doors open to the rear keeping us cool. Breakfast and lunch in the gardens with cat for company... More

After several days of temple visiting in Tamil Nadu,this was just what we needed. A wonderful location in the hills, in a beautiful property,with excellent staff and delicious food. It is so peaceful and quiet, that you are able to relax in the garden and enjoy the nature all around. We only had two nights here, but wished we could... More

Rajakkad Estate or the King's Estate as it is known lives up to its name and this is one place the royalty would definitely spend time to get away from their hectic schedules. Situated in the Pazhani Hills which is around 20kms from Batlagundu (Vatlagundu) in the Kumily-Dindugal Highway, this is a place that is equal to the heaven on... More

Magical was the word that stuck in my head about the last two nights spent at this homestay. The trouble is that why it is so idyllic isn't obvious. The whole experience is so much more than the sum of the parts. The building is astonishing with such unusual clever architecture for its historic nature. Think upturned wooden boat then... More

After seven days of sightseeing in the towns and cities of Tamil Nadu, Rajakkad was a welcome break from the heat and the non stop activity of the rest of our trip. Reached by a winding road up the valley which made me extremely glad I was not driving, it is unspoilt and feels utterly remote and peaceful with giant... More

If you want to be away from the humdrum of city life, this is the place to be. There are no sign boards to guide you(which also adds up to the excitement levels) except clear cut instructions from Mr George which is quite handy & self-sufficient. This is not your regular resort material(minus the TV and swimming pools). All the... More
