Set on a coffee plantation which also is home to many other fruits and spices this is a quiet and beautifully laid out cross between a hotel and a homestay. Within minutes of our arrival we were walking two of the owner's dogs through plantation and forest alive with birdsong. We had a chance to view the working side of...

What a beautiful property! We loved the whole feel of the place, especially with the owners on site giving us an incredible amount of time to explain the coffee growing, the history of the area and other insights into life on a plantation. Plenty of lovely food, a refreshing swimming pool (in January) and lots of walks on site for...

We stayed at Tranquil for 2 nights. It was wonderful. Very colonial. Felt like we'd gone back in time (in a good way!) The hosts and the staff were extremely attentive and friendly. We booked the tree house but unfortunately there was no electricity on the 1st night ( possibly due to monkeys?!) so we were moved to a very...

We spent three days here in December and wished it were much longer - what a wonderful place!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
"RELIVE THE LIFE OF YESTERDAY"S PLANTER" Tucked away in the middle of a green expanse that makes up the 400 acre Coffee & Spices plantation of Kuppamudi Estate, is the stand alone home stay "Tranquil". The hideaway is a sprawling, fully refurbished planter's bungalow with an old world charm. A large annexe attached to the bungalow houses the guestrooms which have been subtly furnished to reflect the colonial past. The genesis of Tranquil was to offer discerning guests an opportunity to relive the life of yesterday's planters, in the exclusivity of a private estate. Your hosts, Victor & Ranjini Dey have lived the planter's life for 40 years and the homestay was started in 2000. They are now ably assisted by their son-in-law & daughter, Ajay & Nisha Mathulla. Tranquil' s uniqueness lies in the ambience created to make guests feel that they are at the home of a friend. To quote a guest's comment in the visitor's Book - "It is rare to cross the border from seclusion to inclusion - you have achieved that with grace and style." Much of the experience of Tranquil is to enjoy its serene unpolluted surrounds - be it lazing around the pool, lounging in a hammock, walking around the beautiful tropical garden, or venturing out on the numerous well marked out walking trails, with the excitement of seeing the Malabar hornbill - one of the 125 species of birds identified till date. The walks range in elevation from 2600 to 3500 Ft above MSL, the toughest being the "Braveheart Walk" which winds its way through the coffee fields to the very top of the hill to "lookout Rock", which offers spectacular views of the Wayanad. Being a working plantation, guest have the opportunity of joining Ajay for a plantation tour, during which you realize the efforts put into getting you that cup of coffee. After you get back, a relaxing therapeutic Ayurvedic massage is available for those who require it. Meal time at Tranquil is full of bonhomie with the family joining the guest for all meals. There are 4 large dining tables and guests intermingle, and conversation flows. The buffet table - a long single plank of Mango Wood measuring around 20 ft - is laden with food, ranging from continental to ethnic cuisine. The guest rooms - Deluxe, Suite and Standard - are very well appointed and one cannot help but notice the attention to detail, from the toiletries provided, right down to magazines in the bathrooms. Needless to say, housekeeping is impeccable. TRANQUILITREE - TREEHOUSE Nestled under the beauty of a Gul Mohr Tree, the structure rests on three trees, the largest of which is a Gul Mohr (Poinciana Regina). At a height of 45 ft from the ground level and overlooking a valley facing north, the entire structure measures 517 sq.ft, comprising of a bedroom, bathroom and verandah. Hot water is on tap , as also all other modern amenities, including a fridge & electronic safe. Adequate light and ventilation has been provided with insect screens on all openings. Approach is from an inclined gangway with railings, ensuring easy access for even the elderly. "TranquiliTree" is a stone's throw from the main house and is connected by intercom. Back up generator power has also been provided. SERENETREE - TREEVILLA The TreeVilla is 1080 sq.ft bedroom with a double bed and 02 single beds and a dressing area. It features 02 bathrooms - one with a panoramic view. The verandahs are 8 feet wide and offer beautiful views of the plantation. The TreeVilla features a TV, DVD, Satellite receiver, Tea/Coffee maker, electronic safe and is connected to electric main line. It is child friendly. Victor and Ranjini Dey have been married for 42 years, all of which have been spent on various plantations. They have always been house proud and have, over the years, had the unique opportunity of renovating / rebuilding 3 dilapidated plantation houses for their present employer, Aswati Plantations Ltd., with whom they been for 36 years. Being a hospitable and gregarious couple, the transition from Planters to Hoteliers came naturally. Ajay and Nisha also have a plantation background having worked in a large corporation for 8 years, and were employed by Aswati Plantations Ltd. for their new ventures in hospitality. AWARDS & RECOGNITION 1. Awarded the Best Approved Home Stay by the Kerala Tourism Department for three consecutive years - 2003 / 2004 / 2005. 2. Rated as 101 Best Hideaways by Tatler Field Guide in 2011 and again in 2010. 3. Rated as Five Best Hideaways by the Saturday Guardian 4.
