Kalarickal K Kurian built this bungalow on the estate in 1918 and for many years it was a landmark in Idukki, doubling as a village office for planters and visitors who came to seek his advice. He was a pioneer in the plantation business and he painstakingly created these beautiful agricultural and living spaces which has now been converted to an exclusive Thekkady plantation homestay. It was a wild terrain where the wild elephants often dropped by for a drink from the lake on the estate. Read the full history of our plantation here.
Today, though the area retains its untouched beauty; its history only adds to its charm. Under the care of Padmasree Dr. Mathew Samuel Kalarickal, internationally renowned cardiologist and his son, Sam Mathew Kalarickal, the estate harks back to a quieter, slower time when some of Kerala's greatest entrepreneurs were adventurers and sportsmen who recognized the fertility of the Idukki soil, and fell in love with the mountains and the lifestyle they promised.
