Wake up and smell the coffee, literally! The warm aroma of freshly ground coffee, grown and roasted on the premises, is your daily invitation to breakfast. The traditional American breakfast receives a Keralan twist at The Pimenta so in addition to the standard fare of eggs, bread, muesli and fruit, you can expect something a little different, such as warmed banana, coconut and jaggery.

Lunch and dinner are an opportunity to explore the local cuisine. A light lunch is usually served at 1.30 (or else enjoyed at a local restaurant) while dinner kicks off around 7.30 and spreads over four courses. All meals are vegetarian and prepared from scratch and aim to showcase the very best of Keralan cooking. True to our beliefs, food and spices are locally sourced – often from our very garden – and organic produce is incorporated as far as possible.

For your comfort, tea and coffee making facilities are available in the communal area and you are invited to help yourself to bottled water at no extra cost. Tropical fruits are always available and we are happy to prepare fresh smoothies with yogurt for you.

Please let us know of any dietary requirements prior to arrival. Vegan options are available and Ayurvedic meals can be prepared for people undergoing Ayurvedic treatment or taking a rest before or after it.
