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 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

So much more than just a coffee estate. Pranoy and Ajoy are the most incredible hosts - with a depth of knowledge about not just coffee but also the birds, plants, animals and the landscape. My fav part of spending time here are the self guided trails that allow you to wander into the plantation and forest and still find your way back easily - doubled back on the blue trail many times to spend time with the 400 year old strangler fig tree!! The cabins are cosy and comfy. If you’re a coffee + nature lover I would urge you to go visit - there’s just 4 cabins so it’s limited capacity but hey that’s a plus when we’re still in a pandemic - all covid protocols followed by the staff + hosts including temp checks and masks.

We spent 3 memorable days at Kerehaklu. Our accommodation was excellent - cosy wooden cabins, with great attention to detail, surrounded by trees. Our hosts - Ajoy and Pranoy were very hospitable, taking us on hikes and teaching us about all the flora along the way, guests are invited to peek at the coffee harvesting / processing and we found our time there very informative. The food is amazing - hearty breakfasts, local cuisine and they even accommodated our dietary restrictions very graciously. The COVID safety precautions made us feel very comfortable and safe. It's a haven of bio-diversity with self guided trails, ancient trees and so many birds, frogs and visiting wildlife. Will definitely visit again.

A quiet and beautiful location, conveniently located a few hours from Bangalore. Very hospitable owners. The property has a lot of incredible old-growth trees, and there are a number of trails you can follow yourself depending on inclination your level of fitness. Very tasty home-made, local food, and a lovely bonfire in the evenings!

Kerehaklu Coffee Estate, Chikmaglur. This marvelous resort situated on the Western Ghats, is owned and run by a father-son duo. Cozy, wooden cottages/cabins are surrounded by dense foliage on the hills. Breathtakingly beautiful view of the magnificent hills and the sunset from the Coffee Drying Yard is something that can't be described in words. Tour of the estate on an open Jeep with the owner and host, Mr Ajoy Thipaiah, was definitely one of the main highlights of our stay at Kerehaklu. The hike to Doddagandi Betta, the six trails in the coffee estate, the hospitality, the food, the list goes on... There's nothing that one will not like at Kerehaklu Retreat. A couple of things that deserve a special mention: *Mr Ajoy Thipaiah and his son, Pranoy, are excellent hosts. *The
