Perched in the hills of Idukki, surrounded by Kerala's most pristine forests and plantations, the Kalarickal Heritage Bungalow is a bed and breakfast that combines the best of old world ambiance with modern comfort, making it one of the best homestays in Kerala for tourists. Wake up to cool mornings and temperate afternoons, and be prepared for quietness. Take a walk through acres of pepper and cardamom plantations, or an uphill trek with escorts provided by us. The bungalow is located in the town of Puliyanmala in Idukki district high above the cities, but is close enough to make a day trip. The drive to Puliyanmala is stunning, because you pass tea estates and slopes planted with tall, dark rubber trees. Leave behind the heat and pollution of city living and spend a few days in this unassuming mountain getaway. Come and experience the charm of our cardamom plantation.
Initially, this heritage bungalow in Kerala was being used by the owner and the family only. Dr Mathew then decided to add a few more rooms next to the bungalow with an idea of starting a plantation stay where the guests could come and experience the Kerala hospitality and cuisine all in the midst of a running estate and have a wonderful plantation experience. Rated best B&B in Idukki by many travellers, this bungalow has received a 'Serviced Villa Classification' from the Dept. of Tourism of the State of Kerala.
