Eclectic & Experiential

Tranquil is a true plantation hideaway. Situated on the fringes of Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary, in South India, this working coffee and spice estate is one of our best-kept secrets. With just a handful of suites, villas and tree-houses, the atmosphere is inspired by the plantation era in India during colonial times.

Lots of wood, thatch and local textiles give the accommodations a warm and homely feeling, while retaining all the modern conveniences that make for a superb stay.

The kitchen garden is the hunting ground for the chefs, who cook up delicious and authentic South Indian specialties that will keep you coming back for more — and what better way to top off that breakfast dosa than with a up of steaming, home-grown South Indian coffee?

This enormous estate has ten different walking and hiking trails, that put you in the heart of South India’s tropical forest.

The estate is a bird-watcher’s dream, and over 120 species have been identified on the property itself! Cool off with a dip in the pool, relax with a soothing massage, or simply page through a book at the Tree Deck lounge. If the daily grind is getting to you and you need a little R&R, this is the place — it doesn’t get a lot more tranquil than this.
