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.

Me and my husband stayed at Kerehaklu for 3 nights and 2 days and we didn’t want to come back after that! If you are looking for escaping into nature, this is your place! Great rustic accommodation and delicious food! There are only 4 cottages in this property, so it’s like you have the whole place to yourself... you are surrounded by fresh air, chirping birds and solitude.. they have great trails within their property to take long walks. Ajoy is a great host and he had so many stories to share on the jeep ride that he took us on.. It was a great stay for us and we forward look to returning back again!

It was such a great experience. Both Ajoy and Pranoy are great hosts. We already miss the food we had there. It was so good. The estate is so beautiful. They have an option of 5 self guided trails . We would definitely like to visit the place again.

Kerehaklu is easily one of the favourite places I've been to in all my years of traveling. It's hard to fault anything really. Ajoy is a very gracious host who ensures everything is perfectly managed on the property. The rooms are clean and cosy. The food is especially good - home made and authentic, it leaves you happy at the end of each meal. The property is breathtaking. 270+ acres of coffee plantation which feels like a plush forest. We went in the middle of a very hot summer and could take walks at noon without breaking a sweat. The best part is that there are many kms of trails which are marked out and easy for anyone to access. This is one place I can't wait to go back to!

I visited Kerehaklu with my family in early 2021 to take a break from the city. We booked two cottages - they were clean and well-maintained, exactly what we needed after the long drive to Chickmanglur. The cottages provide a brilliant view of the estate. Waking up to the sounds of birds chirping was every bit as incredible as we expected it to be. The food (and coffee! - but more on that later) was delicious. We were offered hot meals (thanks to Mr Raju and Ms Bhagya) - rice, dal, sabzi, fruits and a dessert were typically on offer. Beverages such as coffee and tea were also available on order. The best part about Kerehaklu were the treks and tours. The host - Mr Ajoy - provided an informational pamphlet on the treks that visitors could take while staying there, ordered

My partner and I did a 3N4D stay at Kerehaklu during my birthday week. It's a beautiful property nestled amidst a coffee estate, and the slightly elevated rooms lend the feel of staying in a tree house. If you're a nature lover, it's the perfect place to be as you wake up to the chirping of birds and beautiful sunshine. It's definitely not a place for people wary of co-habiting with insects like lizards and spiders [we weren't :)], as you're literally living in the middle of a forest. There are trails around that you can explore too. Ajoy is a very warm and terrific host. We really enjoyed the one-hour open jeep safari, where he drove us through the forest explaining the nitty gritties of the coffee plants and the history of the region. Special mention to Raju and his wife, who
