Kalaketty Estate Kanjirapally

Nestled in the midst of a lush green 150 acre estate is our traditional Syrian Christian home. We are a family of planters who have been living in this ancestral home for the past 3 generations. This house was built in 1930 by my grandfather, Mr. K.V. Joseph Pottamkulam.

The house is set amidst old and huge Mahogany, Teak, Mangostene, Nutmeg and Clove trees and overlooks lush green paddy fields. Rubber is the main crop we grow on the estate, besides cocoa, tapioca, pepper, vanilla, rice, coconuts, bananas and pineapples.

Your stay with us at our estate home would be a good opportunity to experience life as we do in the plantation. You will be well cared for and comfortable in our home, and your privacy is assured since the out house is independent from the family residence.

What You Will Experience

Step in and feel the warmth of an old Syrian Christian tharavadu. We offer our guests the opportunity to interact with our family.

Accommodation is offered in our family bungalow and in the large out house which is spacious and richly furnished. The heavily timbered doors and windows and the red oxide polished floors add to the grandeur of the house. The walls, plastered with lime-stone stucco added with egg whites are neatly finished and kept impeccably white.

Guests can enjoy a panoramic view of the beautiful lush green surroundings in utmost tranquility.

You can enjoy the delicious flavours of typical Syrian Christian food, cooked in the traditional manner using recipes that have been passed down from generations. Most of the fruits, spices and vegetables are grown organically in the farm.
