This place is very special. We spent 2 nights there in October on our 9-night Kerala tour, and it was the best. The views from the room are spectacular and very peaceful. There are mountains, clouds beneath the mountain peaks, trees, flowers, birds - a panorama of wildlife and amazing landscape. This was one advantage. The other was Joseph and his team's friendliness and hospitality. We felt not only like important guests, but like family members. The food was delicious and prepared with care and pride. I was invited by the cook to see how my favorite dish was prepared. We were also invited by Joseph for a plantation tour, saw how the spices grow and how cardamom is processed. Joseph walked with us to show us a beautiful shrine in the countryside.
The room was basic but nice, big and comfortable. We spent hours reading on the veranda, and had tea, coffe and cookies brought to us.
I wholeheartedly recommend this place for anyone who loves nature and wants to know the true spirit of Indian hospitality.
