What I liked:

The property, it's style and location (ie in a plantation) were all positives. Our morning with the elephant was a great experience. At least one member of staff tried their absolute best at all times to please. Others needed improvement.

What the hotel could do better:

Refurb including front drive, bathrooms and wiring. Air con would be a key benefit.

Renew of 50's furniture in favor of authencity or choose ultra modern.

Verandah roofs leaked in the heavy rains.

8 Favorite this hotel — to remember it, to save it to your wish list, or simply to express yourself

Hotel Description

Most of the time you’ve got to be prepared to make certain allowances for hyperbole in the naming of hotels. But in the case of Serenity at Kanam Estate, it’s safe to let down your guard. This place might not literally be serenity itself, but if some latter-day Socrates were to ask you “what is serenity,” this five-room speck of a boutique hotel deep in the Kerala countryside would be at least defensible as an answer.

It’s set on acres and acres of lush green hills, a rubber plantation that’s easily a century old. “Serenity” can be read as something of a mantra, in fact, to those who normally find themselves in need of constant entertainment — this place is secluded indeed, and bike rides, elephant tours, oxcart excursions and nature walks around the spice plantations and ancient temples make up the bulk of the local activities.

When on-site it’s best to get involved in a good book, take a spa treatment, or have a swim in the pool, surrounded by vegetation. The cuisine is a highlight, featuring produce grown on the plantation. Make sure you enjoy the company of whoever you’re traveling with, because you’ll get plenty of quality time.

Travel advisory: Passport and visa requirements differ from country to country. Please check with your local authority before booking.

How to get there: Serenity at Kanam Estate is located 3 hours (by car) from Cochin International airport and 1 hour (by car) from the Kottayam rail station. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for assistance with transfers.
