Stayed here for 2 weeks in February - one of the most wonderful places - hospitality - scenery - food. The historic house has been rejuvenated - comfortable airy rooms opening onto lovely gardens looking over the beautiful Palani Hills. Wake up to deafening dawn chorus from the incredible selection of birds and breakfast in the garden - heaven.
It felt like a house party with an ever changing group of interesting people - equally enthralled. Rereading there are too many superlatives - well deserved! Thank you Robie and PIo.
- 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
