Sunset at Wayanad Tea Estate, Wayanad

Welcome to Camellia!

Take a much needed break, in “Camellia”, - the idyllic villa set in the lap of nature, a safe haven, away from everything-

‘Camellia’ is a safe and secure location in the midst of nature, away from all the noise and pollution of a city- a solution to being cramped up in an apartment.

Camellia is a villa owned by Prema and Dharmaraj in the midst of their coffee and spice estate in Wayanad- a 15 minute drive from Kalpetta town . The villa is situated on top of a hill, with a private road leading up to it . The villa boasts a panoramic view of the Chembra peak, "one of the highest Peak in South India", view from the top terrace in particular, of the expanse of coffee and tea plantations set against the backdrop of Chembra is breath-taking.

The tastefully decorated villa has 2 bed rooms, with attached wash rooms and a private balcony, a large comfortable drawing room with a cosy fire place, a study area, a dining room ( with an attached wash room ) and an open courtyard.

Dharmaraj is a professional tea planter and the couple have lived in tea plantation bungalows for over 2 decades and bring with them a great heritage in housekeeping and hospitality. They reside in Fort Cochin presently and are offering this property as a serviced villa and have authorised sajan, a resident of wayanad and an Airbnb host to manage the serviced villa. Sajan will be there to welcome the guests and attend to all the needs of the guests including arranging local sightseeing.

Prema , an avid gardener, maintains a beautiful and varied garden.

The estate also grows vegetables, coconut, arecanut, oranges, avocado, mangosteen, Rambuttan, Jack fruit, lime and also has copious sources of water from wells.

The intense greenery surrounding Camellia offers plentiful bird life both for the amateur bird watchers and the more discerning ones - all from the comfort of your veranda and deck. Wild boar sighting is a possibility as also jungle sheep, around the house and with a bit of luck the Giant Malabar Squirrel, the majestic glider. We have trained our shade trees in the coffee plantation so as to provide a canopy corridor for these flying squirrels.

An ideal place for those looking to unwind in the midst of a salubrious environment while enjoying caring hospitality and comfort.

Pathrose, our experienced chef will provide you the food of your choice - veg and non-veg, both Indian (any geography) and International. Krishnan, our affectionate caretaker is available to you, just all the time.

Booking can also be done through Google Map (Camellia Mangavayal). Rest assured of personalised service and do look up our reviews in Google maps.
