We spent a week at Tranquilandia basking in Shahul's and Sandrine's care. The guesthouse is located in a very quiet, rural slice of Kerala, well off the beaten path. Tranquilandia is just right for a short retreat from urban life: delicious foods, hammocks, yoga, a swimming pool, and lots of loving, warm hospitality. The bathrooms were open-air and camping style... More

My wife and I, our two kids and dad spent two days in tranquilandia. This is by-far best vacation we have had. Sandrine and Shahul are wonderful family living in as wonderful a place. We reached there late afternoon and started our stay with late lunch. By the time we completed our lunch, we felt like meeting friends whom we... More

Shahul was kind at arrival, driving out to meet us on the very rural road leading to Tranquilandia. The place is most certainly remote, but it felt like a green, well kept oasis. Our hut was all natural, the bed was comfortable, and the sit out overlooked the swimming pool. We could hear the wind in the rafters of the... More

We went as a couple & felt very close to the mother nature... the sound of wind across the valley and chirping sounds of bird and most importantly wonderful hospitality and good family (home away from your...

Tranquilandia- the name invokes curiosity and a sense of calm.. The curiosity is satisfied once you spend a wee bit of time sitting on a charpay outside the thatched accommodation amidst the hills, the visiting hummingbirds, the wind rustling fresh green leaves and the occasional moo from Maggi(the resident cow). The calm never really leaves this place. The location really... More

In the holiday mood, was shortlisting places to visit for the New Year break and finalised upon Silent Valley, which had been on my wish-list for quite some time. While browsing through some accommodation options, quickly narrowed down on Tranquilandia. We planned a three day trip, primarily intending to unwind ourselves and it is indeed the right place. Based on... More

It was a de-stressing experience for me. The five days we spent at Tranquilandia, in this natural pristine surroundings amongst the hills of Attappady was indeed a different experience for us. The term hospitality will be an understatement describing Shahul and Sandrine's home.They are a natural couple, simple and unassuming. Wish we could spend some more time there,but definitely we...

I stayed with my partner for 2 nights at Tranquilandia, and it was one the hardest places to leave in India. I'm still not sure what makes the place so appealing, the countryside, the quiet surroundings, the absolute silence at night, the warmth and hospitality received by Sandrine and Shahul, the property itself, the gardens or the gorgeous children... After... More

As a last minute decision we showed up with my friend to Tranquilandia unannounced without any bookings and got the warmest welcome from Sabrine and Shahul. Highly recommended place to stay, as the location and surroundings are absolutely serene and peaceful, Sabrine and Shahul are such great company and all the meals and especially the amazing fresh-made juices are delicious!

Staying in Tranquilandia for 4 days was such a wonderfull experience. We decided to spend a coupple of days enjoying the peace of the region and the Yoga Sandrine offers..but it was much more than that, much more than expected. We just felt as if we were one of the family members here. Besides the relaxing, we also had lots... More
