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.

Firstly - excellent experience while booking, we got details on recommended places to stop enroute (road trip from Bangalore to Kerehaklu). We were very impressed with the personal touch. On arriving - we just fell in love with our cottage and the overall peace and quiet and chirping birds....Very comfortable room and facilities. The food was fantastic local cuisine and delicious - both the vegetarian as well as the meat options. We did - the jeep tour across the estate, the walk tour with our host (5th gen planter) - and it was an excellent nature walk...Pranoy also had a coffee grinding/brewing session in the sleepy afternoons we spent there - and it totally woke us up. Over all I recommend this place for a romantic getaway for couples - who want a chilled out weekend. Bring a

We stayed at kerehaklu for 2 days. The pictures on their website don't lie, the rooms are well maintained, eco friendly. The food was delicious on and off, especially the rice balls with mutton curry Our hosts Ajoy and his Pranoy were extremely hospitable. Our day started with lunch, an hour long estate drive with every bit explained by Ajoy. He also took us to the coffee drying yard and explained the processes. Day ended with bonfire in the night with dinner. The next morning we went on an interesting trek to a near by peak accompanied by our hosts. The view was breathtaking and picturesque. A Must do ! Also we were extremely lucky to experience a coffee tasting session by Pranoy. It was something memorable that added to our whole stay at kerehaklu. He brewed different kinds

My friends and I decided to get away for a quiet New Years and we choose Kerehaklu because it was closeby and we had an amazing time last time we stayed there. The rooms were perfect; clean, spacious with huge bathrooms and a nice sit out area! The views from the bonfire area and and rooms were superb and felt like we were right in the middle of the jungle. Prashun, the son of the owner Mr. Ajoy Thipaiah, had come down from Australia for the New Years took us around and showed us some beautiful flora and fauna. Definitely trek down to the sunset point, it is absolutely gorgeous. Special thanks to the staff who were extremely hospital and made some healthy but scrumptious food! Overall, great experience and highly recommend it! Happy Travels!

What an amazing way to cap off 2019! After the hustle and bustle of the year, getting cozy around a camp fire, surrounded by nature was the best thing I could ask for! With cottages that are comfortable and clean and food and hospitality that is bar none, I can't recommend Kerehaklu enough. What's more, the hosts were kind enough to take us around the property on hikes and drives that only enhanced our entire experience. I would undoubtedly recommend Kerehaklu to anyone who wants a break from the rat race - trust me, you won't have any regrets!

This was one of my favourite trips of 2019. Kerehaklu is a lovely 300+ acre coffee estate with amazing hiking, and brilliant flora and fauna. Our cottages were very comfortable; set in nature, with a 360 degree view of greenery. Ajoy hosted us and made us feel at home. He knows chikmagalur and the history of the area as if you were reading a beat selling book about it. We also ran into some bison while driving through the estate - an unforgettable experience. The food was excellent and the coffee was outstanding. For NYE, we sat around a bonfire and had a scrumptious barbeque with 7-8 different items on the menu. Couldn't have asked for a more satisfying last supper of 2019. Thank you Ajoy and Pranoy for a memorable stay, will definitely come back real soon!
