Sundara Mahal is situated at Kalpetta in Wayanad District of Kerala - India. Set in acres of a Progeny Orchard and Garden this private bungalow now extends the lifestyle and hospitality as a Kerala Govt approved home stay. Sundara Mahal is an exclusive getaway. It is a century old bungalow, steeped in history and nestled in the woods.

Sundara Mahal lives up to its name, in its splendid Garden. There is more to this Garden than the manicured Lawns and abundant greenery that meets the eyes on first sight. It is home to a lot more species that its human occupants. The garden is ideal for relaxing with hammocks, garden chairs and swings strategically sited. Sundara Mahal has retained its original architectural features, mostly in teak, mahogany, Malabar rosewood, antique furniture and ambience of a bygone era. Your family will share a gracious life style long forgotten. Through solar panels and energy efficient lighting the carbon footprints our guests leave behind will be minimal. Guests can enjoy the myriad attractions of Wayand. Trekking at Chembra peak or Brahmagiri hills, speed boating at Banasura Dam, picnics at Meenmutty, Soochipara or Kanthanpara water falls, rafting at Kuruva islands, or examine the New Stone Age pictorial scripts at Eddakkal and savour the wildlife at Tholpetty and Muthanga wildlife sanctuaries.You may also enjoy interactions with the owners on lifestyle, history, culture, cuisine, plantations and crafts in the area.
