Our Heritage

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 have now been converted to an exclusive Thekkady plantation homestay resort. 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.

Wonderful calm and charming experience

We were privileged to have the use of the original bungalow circa 1929. We were greeted by the aroma of cinnamon roasting in the factory on the same premises. The caretaker couple didn't speak English or Hindi...but they took care of all our needs with a smile. The fare was simple but delicious Kerala fare. We were served a shredded Karela raita which was amazing. Also had a tour of the cinnamon and pepper plantation. Charming and Highly recommended!!

Beautiful historic Bungalow Resort

We stayed at the Kalarickal Heritage Bungalow while cycle touring for 3 weeks through Kerala. We found the information on a blog written by other cycle tourists and experienced the same amazing service, beautiful rooms and property, and wonderful welcome by the hosts Joseph and Maria. They cooked us the most amazing meals with fresh ingredients and perfect to our tastes. Definitely the best heritage bungalow in Thekkady.
