Shortly after arriving at Kalaketty we were taken for a tour of the property and our gracious host Mr Kurian who explained the workings of a rubber plantation. Then the heavens opened but that did not deter us as the atmosphere is amazing.
We had the best experience staying in one of the two beautifully appointed rooms (almost apartment The bedroom cum lounge also has a small study or reading room and bathroom) The lower level room looks onto a beautiful lawn while the upstairs apartment has a view over the vegetable garden. The rooms are exceptionally clean and spacious.
Meals are a treat of Keralan food and Anuja and her chef treated us to delicacies we never found again.
Mr Kurien and his lovely wife Anuja were very informative about the area and culture and it was wonderful to have the privilege to have dinner in their lovely home and share stories.
