For those looking for a A quiet and peaceful getaway in the hills...this is it Found it safe and away from the maddening crowds something we were looking for during the pandemic times. The rooms are well maintained and clean and loved the bathroom! The food delicious with a nice spread at every meal. Look forward to long walks in the plantation and a morning trek to see the view of the western ghats! The cook and caretakers are as unobtrusive as can be and you are pretty much on your own through the day. we were here 3 nights

This place is not for the usual traveller looking for a host of amenities and activities. Definitely not a place for those who want to be connected 24/7 to their devices. It's a beautiful estate on the slopes of the Western Ghats. They have good clean cabins with good food. They have 5/6 nature trails, all neatly marked out, which depending on your fitness and time, that you can choose to explore. You can hike up a hill, spend time alongside a stream, spot birds with your binoculars or study the abundant flora in the plantation. They have a jeep ride and a nice session about coffee processing. At night, the bonfire and snacks are a social delight. Best of all, the hosts are tremendously social and attentive!.

Just 4.5hr drive from concrete Bangalore to the calm serene forest land in the midst of coffee plantations over 240 acres. Great hospitality with home made food which is very contagious. Hats off to the team. The icing on the cake is the coffee tasting by the young budding professional Prannoy ably guided by his experienced hands on father Ajoy with over 4 decades of focussed determination. Great place to be prepared with the right gear for 6 trails for the family to suit each one's sustenance. Would love to return to experience yoga in the early morning serenity. Thank each and every one who made our stay memorable and body system rejuvenated.🙏❤️

2020 being a year of staying indoors, Kerehaklu was our first choice to take a break from our 8 months of lockdown. A nice quiet & peaceful place, few hours away from Bangalore. We were fortunate to be the first to stay here after the reopening post Covid lockdown. The cottages were beautiful, the plantation stunning and the hosts were the best. With covid norms followed throughout our stay, we had a lovely time here. The food was homely & so good that I ate more than I usually would. Mr.Ajoy was a gracious host who took us on a wonderful jeep ride and a hike across the plantation. His passion for the plantation is inspiring. Pranoy's coffee brewing experience was beautiful too! Tasting the notes in the coffee brewed and watching the master skills of his was a wonderful

We visited this gorgeous plantation for two days and those two days memories going to hold with my family and me forever. The place is gorgeous, and it was inspiring to see how Mr Ajoy, Pranoy and their crew run this plantation so passionately. We went for a fantastic Jeep ride, hiked, attended an amazing coffee brewing session by Pranoy, walked through a couple of trails, saw some beautiful wildlings and had some mouth-watering home food, what more we can ask? This place is a Gem, and I am coming back soon!
