We recently spent a memorable vacation in Waynad at Sundara Mahal in December. Murali and Prabha were the most exquisite hosts and went out of their way to make our every moment there enjoyable. We enjoyed the sumptuous breakfasts and the lovely dinner conversations with the hosts and other family who were visiting at that time. Murali is a great...

" 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,...

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...

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.

Sundara Mahal is situated at Kalpetta in Wayanad District of Kerala - India. Set in acres of a Progeny Orchard and Garden this private bungalow now extended the lifestyle and hospitality as a Kerala Govt approved home stay. Sundara Mahal is an exclusive getaway. Cuisine is pure vegetarian. We cook and serve some of the traditional dishes peculiar to Kerala as well as those specialties of Tamil Brahmins.Facilities include large car parks, indoor board games, cricket nets, shuttle badminton, football, air rifles for target shooting, dartboard, big screen TV with DTH, internet, workstation with music and video collection & library.Transport, experienced Guides & Masseurs and Doctors are on call.Sundara Mahal lives up to its name, in its splendid Garden. 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. Guests can enjoy the myriad attractions of Wayand. 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
