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

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
