Kandath Tharavad

Palakkad | Other

Surrounded by rice paddies and North Kerala’s rural beauty, Kandath Tharavad is an ancestral family home where guests are welcomed with traditional hospitality

Each of the homestay’s four rooms has its own character, and a range of spaces to suit everyone from couples to family groups. There’s a mix of traditional style and contemporary facilities, including rustic wooden four-poster beds, wet room en-suites and air conditioning.

The decor in the shared areas reflects the property’s history as the home of a prominent local landowner, with polished wood, intricate tiled floors and vibrant artwork. Wide, open verandahs bring the lush gardens seamlessly inside, while still providing shelter and shade.

There is a focus on offering an immersive, local experience, with a wide range of activities available on and off site. Hire bikes to explore the villages, trek through the surrounding countryside, learn to cook local dishes and try your hand at traditional martial arts.

Take a cruise to explore the famed Keralan backwaters, discover fascinating birds and wildlife on a nature walk, or simply sit on the shady verandah enjoying the peace of the gardens.

A range of fragrantly spiced Keralan dishes are served in the open-sided dining verandah, and beer and wine are available upon request. For a more private dining experience, settle in a secluded nook where you can watch garden as it twinkles in the evening candlelight.

We Say
A wonderful opportunity to experience life in a stately, traditional Keralan home.
