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 have stayed in many homestays and there's no contest that Kerehaklu is the best! So what's so special about this place? Only 4 cottages nestled among coffee plantation, awesome simple freshly cooked food, the hosts give us a lively, lovely,engaging informal tour of the vast estate abutting a forest. One is free to contemplate,restrospect for oneself. With a blink of an eye, I will go back to this pristine place. Many many thanks to Ajoy,Prannoy and Raju Shaila Chavaly

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

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
