Rajakkad Estate

Certificate of Excellence
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.

We arrived at Rajakkad in the wake of a cyclone which had brought down the power lines and many trees. The welcome from Robie and all his staff, recruited from the village on the estate, was beyond compare. We enjoyed our walks with Sudhan, both down to the farm and, more energet

We spent two nights with Robesh and his team. After the bustle and noise of Madurai, this was an oasis of calm away from roads and civilisation. The food, drinks and service were impeccable. The building is a beautiful piece of history. Whilst it is basic, you feel you are in a

Off the beaten track experience in the mountains above Madurai. A wonderful old residential Kerala house in the middle of a immense coffee, banana and pepper plantation.
The service team is particularly engaged, preparing delicious food (all organic and fresh from the own farm)

Dear Mic57-7, Thank you for your review of Rajakkad Estate. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay. The peace and birdsong are real treasures, sometimes the birds are as loud as an orchestra!

Dear R G, Thank you so much for your review or Rajakkad Estate. We really appreciate all your comments and observations. We are delighted that you enjoyed your time with us in the hills. We often find that guests feel recovered after a few nights of good sleep and resting in the garden. All the staff take great pride in looking after our guests and it is lovely to hear that you felt so welcomed by all. I apologise for the absence of hot spices in the food, should you visit again I am sure we can ask Paneer the cook to raise the spice levels! We are always happy to do this for guests. Thank you once again for your review and I hope you had a safe onward journey. Warm regards,

"All rooms equally good all situated around one of the courtyards."
"Rooms are all quite similar, away from the kitchen and dining area would be our favoured choice so you can get some privacy."
"Make sure you request a room with a garden view."
