Sundara Mahal offers safe and pure vegetarian food. We have been able to preserve, cook and serve some of the Traditional dishes peculiar to Kerala as well as those specialties of Tamil Brahmins. Some of these dishes are labour intensive and involve Traditional vessels and methods to cook. But these unique tastes and flavors are too good to be forgotten. There's only so much an instant food mix can deliver. Beyond it lies the art of cooking.
The tastes of our guests are our prime concern. From the choice of rice to whether the Breakfast is to be Continental or Oriental or lunch is to be North or South Indian and Supper should be Chinese are always finalized after consultation. Synthetic Food colours, Taste enhancers and other short cuts are totally avoided. The guests are provided with bottled water only. The ingredients are sourced locally and organic produces grown in Wayanad by local growers are our priority.
