Porcupine Castle's history begins when, in the years before Indian independence, T.V. Paulose, a scion of a family of agriculturists and planters, migrated from Kerala and bought 300 acres of fertile land in Coorg from a British planter who grew Robusta and Arabica coffees, rubber and spices.
From the outset, with a profound love of nature, Paulose's credo embraced sustainable agricultural practices and inculcated in his family and workers the imperative to recycle resources and minimize carbon footprints in all agricultural and plantation practices.
Three subsequent generations have assiduously maintained the plantations carrying forward their ancestor's vision and passion. With Coorg becoming a destination of choice for discerning travelers, we were inspired to create a luxury hospitality experience set amidst stunningly beautiful surroundings in an eco-friendly plantation.
