We recently stayed at Kalarickal for 3 nights which felt like one night too long. A lovely setting
with beautiful flowers and a very short walk to the fascinating cardamom plantation. We paid what I think is a rather exorbitant $150 per day (meals included). The meals were only average. By contrast we had spent 4 nights on a houseboat just prior to arriving at Kalarickal that had a very small kitchen and were served veritable feasts of inventive and delicious Kerelan cuisine every day. I also found the mattresses not up to western standards so had uncomfortable sleeping and the room wasn't touched during our 3 days there. I think with some serious attention to detail and investing in proper mattresses and better food the place would benefit greatly but as I mentioned it's far too expensive for what they provide. It's also just off a busy road and there's a fair amount of traffic. Since it's at a curve in the road there is a great deal of honking that disturbs the peace.
