This time we stayed for three nights and Kurian and Anuja are the most delightful hosts. As in previous reviews the food is superb. We again walked with Kurian around part of his estate, saw the local bee keeper and tasted his wonderful honey, took a tuk tuk ride around the local village and visited the nearby Benedictine school.

We recently experienced a two night stay in this beautiful home. Our hosts made us feel so welcome; their kindness, thoughtfulness and hospitality were evident throughout our stay. Whilst there we learnt about Kerala's architecture, plantations and tasted its delicious food. Anuja is an outstanding cook and her meals are presented beautifully; each dish was a subtle delight. We were... More

I am glad that I am not staying more than two days as I would come away far bigger than I am now. Anuja and Kurian are great hosts and the food is superb with lots of Keralan dishes to try. Breakfast this morning was lovely with string hoppers, local honey, steamed bananas, and tapioca with a light chili sambal,... More

Shortly after arriving at Kalaketty we were taken for a tour of the property and our gracious host Mr Kurian who explained the workings of a rubber plantation. Then the heavens opened but that did not deter us as the atmosphere is amazing. We had the best experience staying in one of the two beautifully appointed rooms (almost apartment The... More

For two days we were welcomed in to the hosts family. In this beautiful part of Kerala we went for morning walks with them, toured their rubber plantation, and visited the countryside. They made us feel like part of the family. For foodies such as us we were amazed by the home cooked Kerala cuisine that was truly delicious. This... More

We arrived to a warm welcome from Anuja and shown around their beautiful home. The room we had was amazing, huge with a wonderful wooden ceiling with a study off, facing the vegetable garden. The food was out of this world, we were there for two days and felt we had been given a tour of Keralan food - exceptional!... More

Exceptionally spacious and comfortable accommodation set this property apart from your typical hotel. Beautifully appointed homestay with fantastic food. Adjacent to the family home and overlooking the estate, was interesting to learn about rubber production. Absolute peace and quiet was a welcome retreat from everyday life. For this reason would suit couples wanting to unwind and relax with not much... More

Kalaketty Estate is a peaceful retreat surrounded by rubber plantations. Our room was large, airy and beautifully furnished, and during our two days we had a wonderful balance of activities organised by our hosts and time to ourselves. We loved the accommodation, the food and the beautiful surroundings. The most special part of our stay was spending time with our... More
