Kerehaklu is our home. It’s a green haven tucked away in the Western Ghats – a UNESCO World Heritage site – which will inspire you to gather yourself, unwind and create. The plantation is spread across 275 acres and is a 15 minute drive from the closest village of Aldur, making it a secluded getaway. Kerehaklu is densely populated with diverse species of flora and fauna which can be seen and heard at any point. It is the ideal place to take things at your own pace and de-stress. The space and activities radiate comfort and allow you to calm yourself away from all the commotion.

We went out to Kerehaklu to spend some time together. The ambiance and experience elevated the romantic experience we had. We had a lot of fun time exploring the estate and plantation. The tranquility of the place, the surrounding birds and the sound of the stream as you walk through the estate is an amazing experience. The food was super tasty and homemade, hence did not feel guilty about stuffing ourselves. I would recommend this place as a getaway for the weekend. Cell reception is poor, but this only helps us connect with each other and spend time with nature.

A quaint getaway ahead of Chikmagalur. Go for - the coffee - the 400 year old fig tree - to learn more about coffee! It was wonderful to see native species co-existing in their natural habitat alongside coffee. Unlike most coffee estates, Kere hasn't cut down the ecosystem to produce only coffee. Came back appreciating farm to table produce a lil more as well. Pranoy and his dad are great hosts, couldn't have been seamless.

My friends and I spent two days at kerehaklu and were so glad to have got a booking. The estate is tucked away in the outskirts of Aldur bordering the forest reserve which makes it a great place to break away from the city hustle. Getting there from Bangalore took around 5 hours and was super straightforward thanks to our host Mr. Ajoy’s directions.  Upon reaching the estate we checked into our cabins which were very comfortable and had everything we needed. The cabins themselves are made almost entirely with materials available in and around the estate which makes them very unique.  We had all meals included which consisted mostly of yummy home cooked South Indian food. I’m sure you’ve heard of Kerehaklu coffee but you HAVE to try the Kerehaklu masala dosa if you get the chance, you won’t regret it.  The estate itself is extremely beautiful and very well cared for. On the estate tour with Pranoy we got to learn a great deal about the local flora and fauna and how the coffee, figs & peppers grow. We had a chance to go on a Jeep tour with Mr. Ajoy who showed us a 400 year old fig tree and told us about his encounters with the bison in the area. Both Pranoy and Mr. Ajoy are very well informed about the land and great to talk to so you’ll definitely come away learning something new.  Since we went during harvest season we even got to see some of the steps involved in coffee processing, and had a brewing session hosted by Pranoy & Binny where we got to see how different processing and brewing methods can change the taste of coffee. We went in knowing nothing about coffee and left knowing (almost) everything about coffee. Both days we spent there were wrapped up by a post-dinner bonfire which was very welcome and much needed.  If you’re considering going to kerehaklu I’d say don’t think too hard, just do it. You'll leave with a newfound respect for your morning coffee.

Staying in the cottages at Kerehaklu is an altogether wow experience! Nestled between massive trees, coffee and pepper plantations, listening to unique chirping sounds, leaves hustling around - all in all, very relaxing stay. Mr Ajoy (the host) is a very interesting conversationalist; well informed and keen on sharing lots of stories about his plantation, life in Kerehaklu and overall Q&A about coffee. He took us on a lovely morning trek, an evening sunset ride & a coffee tour & each of this was a great experience. The cabins are well furnished and spacious enough for a couple.. There are a total of 4 cabins at this property located beside each other. The stay here had an all inclusive meal plan. Very homely dishes and very hospitable staff. Mr Ajoy gives suggestions on self-exploratory treks n trails. Recommend you to go on a few definitely basis your time in hand. Just strolling through the property leaves one refreshed. High recommend a stay in Kerehaklu - I'll be back again surely.

We spent two nights at Kerehaklu and left yearning for more. There are 4 cottages and we had booked all of it and hence we experienced a near private resort experience. Its nestled in a vast coffee plantation and you will be far away from civilization. The highlight of the estate is Mr. Ajoy ( host & owner). He gave us great company, told us a lot about coffee , answered so many questions patiently and took us on a beautiful trek. The cabins are cosy with all basic amenities. Food is very homely and tasty. Don't go there expecting a lavish spread. There are also some trails that you can do on your own and be with nature during your entire stay. You wake up to the sound of birds, get your dose of tasty coffee and truly disconnect from your regular routine. Highly recommend staying here. I will definitely go back.
