" If Music be the food of love, play on give me excess of it " wrote Shakespeare in Twelfth Night or what you will. Drawing a parallel if hospitality exudes warmth, we had plenty of it from our hosts Murali and Prabha at Sundara Mahal Kalpetta. When the wheels of our car cruised into the pathway at the entrance,... More

A beautiful place to spend your vacation. Being located in Kalpetta, all the sight-seeing points are close by. Despite being in Kalpetta, it is away from hustle and bustle of the city. It is a beautiful ancestral house, with huge front-yard, beautifully furnished rooms. The hosts are lovely. We had nice long chats with them during dinnertime, breakfast time, at... More

Following aspects could seal the deal: 1. Our 2 year old son didn't find difficult in adjusting. 2. Ample space for children to play and roam. No hotel can promise such spacious common area. 3. Home cooked food. Vegetarian only. 4. Perfect location. 5. Friendly hosts.

Was really amazed at the hospitality of the owners of the property - Prabha and Murali. The house is really beautiful and set in the lap of nature. Being bird enthusiasts, we totally loved the variety of birds we could see there.

To begin with, I picked up Sundara Mahal as it was a purely vegetarian place and after reading the earlier reviews I felt it would be a fairly good place to stay on a holiday. I was totally unprepared for the warm welcome I received from Mrs.Prabha and Mr.Murali.That very instant I felt that I had made the right choice.... More

Sundar Mahal is easy to locate and is on the main Kalpetta Road. It is surrounded by greenery and lovely trees. The 100+ years old house is very well maintained with lots of antiques, from ancient cooking utensils to a huge paddy storage barn room everything has a story to tell. Host Mrs. Prabha & Mr. Murali are simple and... More

There is more to this Garden than the manicured Lawns and abundant greenery that meets the eyes on first sight. It is home to a lot more species that its human occupants. The garden is ideal for relaxing with hammocks, garden chairs and swings strategically sited.Sundara Mahal has retained its original architectural features, mostly in teak, mahogany, Malabar rosewood, antique furniture and ambience of a bygone era. Your family will share a gracious life style long forgotten. Through solar panels and energy efficient lighting the carbon footprints our guests leave behind will be minimal.

Trekking at Chembra peak or Brahmagiri hills, speed boating at Banasura Dam, picnics at Meenmutty, Soochipara or Kanthanpara water falls, rafting at Kuruva islands, or examine the New Stone Age pictorial scripts at Eddakkal and savour the wildlife at Tholpetty and Muthanga wildlife sanctuaries.You may also enjoy interactions with the owners on lifestyle, history, culture, cuisine, plantations and crafts in the area. ... more   less
