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?

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
