Fantastic place. There is nothing to fault at Vanilla County. The setting in the middle of rubber plantation is spectacular. The house itself is a beautifully kept plantation house, full of character, and very well appointed. Our rooms were very spacious with excellent bathrooms, tea/coffee facilities, AC and a balcony. Everything is spotless. Mathew (the current owner) and his family...

Time to catch your breath and relax with great food, beautiful surroundings and great service. This is not a place to come if you want excitement and thrills it is slow-paced with attention on personal service and quiet enjoyment. Matthew, Rani and their team were wonderful. Thoughtful, enjoyable outings, hammocks and good weather all combined to make the perfect 2...

If you want to know how the spice plantation owners in the 1950s lived this iis your chance. Baby Mathew and his wife live in his family home complete with furniture of the era. It offers a quiet reprieve from the hustle and bustle of India. The meals are served in either the garden or dining room and are really...

Full board is provided & each delicious meal is cooked/overseen by Rani, a very talented cook. Our breakfasts & dinners were held in the cool, inviting courtyard while lunch was...
