Rajakkad Estate is a gem hidden in a forest. One feels totally at home away from home since there are only seven rooms and that service is there when you need it and otherwise you can do whatever you want and sit wherever you want either inside the beautiful mid-18th c. Kerala wooden house where everything is harmoniously decorated or... More

During our holiday to India this year we were fortunate to spend a couple of nights at Rajakkad. Robbie and his staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive. It is certainly off the beaten track but well worth the drive. The rooms were comfortable and food good. Nicholas and Sophie guided us through yoga at the very peaceful yoga platform... More

This is a hidden jewel 1000m up in the hills the long windy road makes you think you will never get there but it is worth it. Fabulous views if not scary at times add to the uniqueness of this place. The staff are attentive and the meals good. The house itself is a typical Kerala property moved from the... More

The location is 1000m above sea level, so has a benign climate year round. Very quiet location, but although we stayed for a week we didn't get bored. The garden slopes down & merges in to the forrest, so wildlife abounds. Lovely food, fantastic service, & a very interesting historic building designed for comfort. Possibly those with limited mobility might... More

From an Indian point of view, its unimaginable such a place exist so close to the hustle and bustle of city life in the plains. And it is literally off the map. There are no signboards to indicate the location of Rajakkad. The direction given on the website is pretty accurate. Robesh/Nisha who look after the property ask you to... More

I love to travel off the beaten track in India, and sometimes I discover gems. One such is Rajakkad Estate in Tamil Nadu. High in the Western Ghats, near Dindigul, you will find a small hotel of rare quality. A peaceful place where every room exudes the calmness and tranquillity that comes from superb design. Rajakkad is stylish, exclusive and... More

Echoing all the words in praise raised by fellow travellers on this place. While it has all the conveniences and facilities of a resort sans the usual swimming pool, it still retains the charm of the old world Kerala's pathinarukettu. First time slept in a room with the balcony doors open that overlooks the garden and felt absolutely safe. Don't... More

Pitched up here on one of our many unplanned travels in India, having been handed on by another fabulous and special hotel/home. What a dream. A dismantled small Keralan palace, transported and rebuilt high up in the Palani Hills. If you think you have seen it all in India, come here and fall into a state of grace. Everywhere beautiful...

Stayed here for 2 weeks in February - one of the most wonderful places - hospitality - scenery - food. The historic house has been rejuvenated - comfortable airy rooms opening onto lovely gardens looking over the beautiful Palani Hills. Wake up to deafening dawn chorus from the incredible selection of birds and breakfast in the garden - heaven. It... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A small garden hotel set in the foothills of India's Western Ghats, Rajakkad offers a sense of serenity and tranquility. Life here has changed very little over the last century. Pallam Palace is the house that sits at the heart of the old Rajakkad plantation. A small garden hotel with 8 unique bedrooms within an 18th century wooden structure that perfectly expresses its rich architectural heritage. For the traveller seeking a world apart or for the explorer in search of adventure, there can be no better setting. As for those in search of peace, look no further. ... more   less
