Rajakkad Estate, Tamil Nadu

Hidden amongst the lush forests and coffee farms of the Palani hills sits the Pallam Palace, once the main house at the stem of the old Rajakkad Estate plantation. This unique seven luxury suite garden hotel is set within an 18th century wooden structure breathing a rich architectural heritage. Rajakkad Estate is a delightful place whether you want to relax in a hammock listening to bird songs, explore the neighboring waterfalls and coffee plantations or trek up through the rocky gorges sheltered by a canopy of trees.


You are immersed in the South Indian forests, one and a half hours drive from Madurai Airport. Be welcomed by the songs of birds onto this ancient plantation site. Dindigul is the nearest main town, and with that being 50km away you are truly engrossed in the tranquil foothills of the Western Ghats. A number of villages are an adventurous walk away ready to be explored.

Your room

Your suiteis simple yet authentic, spacious yet cozy and ultimately peaceful. White walls meet black oxide floors providing a gentle and contrasting ambience. A splash of color compliments the classic panache throughout your bed chamber. Your suite is accessed through the main courtyard and opens out onto the serene garden of the Rajakkad.

Why we like it

The opportunity to get lost in your surroundings and allow a well-earned break among a vast array of forest is an idyllic venue to pause for thought. Exploring the Palani Hills, stumbling upon waterfalls, coffee plantations and quaint villages merely compliments the grandeur of The Rajakkad Estate.
