Nobody goes to Ramassery ? It is a forgettable little South Indian Village and before you can say Madhavikutty Baby (Jack Robinson, loosely translated), you’re knee-deep in paddy fields. What you have is a spectacularly lacklustre destination and pretty much nothing to do.Come early evening, drop in at Saraswathi' tea & idli stall. It appears the Ramassery Idli is internationally celebrated. You can have treatment from Ayurvedic doctors from the neighbouring Village. So, when are you coming ?
“We found this place wonderful and really enjoyed our stay here. It’s off the beaten tourist track in a small village away from main roads. Krishna Vilas is a unique and peaceful place to spend a few days. The space is amazing and based on a very traditional layout, and there is information in the house that tells its story - fascinating! We found it easily using the instructions we were given combined with Google Maps to search for a nearby tea/iddly shop. We were warmly welcomed by Deepak, the caretaker, who helped us with everything we needed and treated us to lovely, home cooked meals and refreshments during our stay, including going out to get some of the famous Ramaserry iddlis for our breakfast. The rooms were spacious and airy and we had our pick of 5 bedrooms to choose from (when you book, you automatically book out the entire place which can sleep up to 9) and we enjoyed spending afternoons on the shady roof terrace watching the birds and appreciating the flowers all around us. Krishna Vilas has been fairly recently restored in keeping with its original character so its facilities are in keeping with that approach - the bathrooms have flushing, pedestal toilets and wash basins, while the shower spaces have more traditional ‘bucket’ showers. While we were there the weather was wonderful and the ceiling fans were easily sufficient for us, however there is no air conditioning, which we didn’t miss at all. This is the kind of place that is great for the more adventurous traveller, rather than those who expect the ‘all mod cons’ of standard hotels anywhere. It is a truly characterful place and not somewhere that could just be transposed to anywhere else in the world - for that reason alone it is special. All in all we would definitely recommend Krishna Vilas to friends and family who ventured away from the tourist hot spots out towards Palakkad!”

“This experience shouldn't be missed. The place is more than a farm stay. A vast expanse of greenery, fresh air, a treehouse for soul searching, a big pond where you can fish, organic meals, spacious room with all amenities; there is everything a tired traveller needs. Sajith's mother is the best host I've ever known. After my three days stay, I really felt rejuvenated. And the price is really nothing compared to what those claustrophobic hotel rooms in the town charge. Once again, don't miss this experience if you visit Palakkad.”
