Just one and half hours from Kodaikanal hill station and two hours from Madurai international airport, this is plantation country at its most prized: a place of undulating fields of pepper, coffee, lime and avocado: this is the beating heart of the hills, encircled by protective forests.

At 1100 metres above sea level the approximately 20,000 sq. ft. plots are a rare opportunity to create a home apart; bungalows embracing the informal, yet familiar style of the area.

The estate is managed using the latest technical advances, and employs an environmentally responsible approach. The building of your luxury home at the Palani Hills Estate ensures you will live in good health and harmony with your natural surroundings.

The exceptional purity of the environment and the comfort of your custom built home creates a perfect retreat for your family and friends to share memorable experiences in the many years to come.


At Palani Hills, your home will nestle in this lush verdant nature. Dusk arrives to bring you stunning sunsets and a night sky blazing with a million different stars.

The estate is located in the dramatic Western Ghats which cross Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka where the plants and wildlife are among the most diverse in India.

Built by an experienced engineering team, your very special place will be constructed to demanding standards, within your time frame.

The individual properties lie within a 500 acre private coffee plantation, bordered by forest land, with one of the largest variety of birds in south India.


Driving through the Palani Hills, on the excellent Ghat road, the panorama of coffee and pepper estates surround you. It is the perfect climate for a few rounds of golf at the famous Kodaikanal Golf Club, which is just an hour and half away. Kodaikani is also home to the excellent 5 star Carlton Hotel and one of India's top international schools.

Swim in the freshwater pools, trek through the lush hills to hidden waterfalls and experience the journey of coffee-from bush to roasting..the recreational potential is hugely varied.

At an altitude of 1100 meters the temperate climate is enjoyable through the year. Forest and nature reserves encircle the area in a green belt of beauty. The Indian bison and the nearby elephant valley are well established in the area.

The management team will take full care of all property and domestic maintenance. Work and city life will be just a distant memory and your time can be spent exploring and discovering a different way of living.

...From the winding road clinging to the Western Ghats, lime-green vistas full to bursting unfurl below. A tiny road wiggles through a village, then the track wends ever upwards, through a working coffee and pepper estate to end before an avenue of stately trees and an 18th-century palace built on holistic Vastu principles. The building exudes a blissful quietude. Extravagant wildlife includes giant squirrels and barking deer, a cacophony of treetop birdlife soothes the soul and a swim under the tiered waterfall will stay in the memory for ever.

....and the only sound to wake you in the morning is birdsong. There are three colonnaded courtyards, stylish sitting and dining rooms and a gem of a library. A French textile artist based in Pondicherry helped with the interiors, and there is vintage and contemporary art everywhere. The climate is comfortable enough for hikes around the estate, ending with a picnic at a waterfall - a feast for all the senses. Sawdays Special Places to Stay
