Detailed Info

Kalarickal Heritage plantation covers an area of over 65 acres. The main crop is cardamom. Additionally, pepper and coffee are also grown. There is a small vegetable garden too. The entire plantation is irrigated using an Israeli technology known as mist irrigation. The Kalarickal Heritage Bungalow located amidst these plantations is one of the best plantation stays in Idukki. The bungalow is suitable for family holidays. The idea behind adding rooms to the bungalow and making it a plantation stay was to welcome guests and make them experience the Kerala cuisine and hospitality in the midst of a running estate and have a wonderful plantation experience.

The Kalarickal Heritage Bungalow has received a 'Serviced Villa Classification' from the Department of Tourism of the State of Kerala. The bungalow provides an old world ambience along with all the modern comforts making it unique. The pleasant weather throughout the day and the quiet environment add to the charm of the bungalow. The area surrounding the bungalow welcomes you to take some long walks and delightful soft treks where you actually experience the plantation up-close. This mountain getaway is far removed from the heat and pollution of the city.
