It's for people who love nature and respect the concept what they are giving. Simple home made food ..most of the veg and non veg ..dairy... More

It's a fantastic property run by Robesh and his men, which will help you relax, unwind and rejuvenate. Don't go with any agenda, just carry books with you to spend hours not doing anything. They also have a little library where one can take books to leisurely read. The food is healthy and home cooked. The rooms are classic, yet... More

I don't want to write an unsatisfactory review but I had very high expectations of Rajakkad. The hotel on the property has been painstakingly restored and done up. The estate itself is serene and beautiful. When we arrived there was no chef on the property and the local boys cooked up something very basic for us. I have travelled to... More

Beautiful old Keralan house moved to a fabulous location high in the Palani hills, on a picturesque coffee estate. The property is beautifully, and tastefully, furnished in an eclectic mix of indian and western antiques together with contemporary pieces. This is an idyllic hideaway if all you want is peace and tranquility, there is little to do except walk the... More

I stayed for three nights at the end of March, needing a bit of respite from two months travelling in south India. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and relaxing setting. The building is beautiful with several courtyards, wonderfully designed to offer lots of quiet corners amid antiques and artefacts, offering shade during the day and quiet reading... More

Certainly worth journeying the steep and windy road to end up at Rajakkad Estate. The accommodation although basis is clean but our room did need a bit of TLC in the way of a coat of paint. You feel very much back to nature whilst there. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was good although sometimes strange! Small... More

This is a palace relocated from Trivandrum by the Fry family. Beautiful traditional architecture with very simple rooms, minimal bathrooms, open to the outdoors, closed off by wooden doors/ shutters. Such a relaxing setting with breakfast and lunch brought to you wherever you chose to sit in the grounds. Dinner was served around a large communal table and drinks and... More

We arrive here wondering after the steep climb where on earth we would end up. Then after a very bumpy ride though the Estate we were greeted by Roby the owner. Three days just wasn't long enough to be in the beautiful area, the food the staff were just lovely. Thank you Roby we will be back

This is a beautifully designed and furnished house situated in a beautiful cool and tranquil location. We loved the traditional architecture of the house; the internal courtyard with the rooms opening up to the thoughtfully landscaped gardens, seen through glass free sliding doors from the bedrooms that make you feel like you are sleeping close to nature but with the...

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
