If you want to enjoy a sea of green, experience a holiday in India that will calm your nerves and rejuvenate you completely, then Kerala is the answer to your needs. One of the most sought-after tourist destinations in Asia, Kerala is a destination of a lifetime with the timeless beauty of palm-fringed beaches of Kovalam and Varkala, the majesty of the undulating hills of Munnar, the serenity of the pristine backwaters of Kumarakom and the enchanting woods and forests of Thekkady and the Silent Valley.
When planning a holiday in Kerala, you have to be sure of what you want – days spent in leisure in the emerald backwaters, a wellness break with yoga and Ayurveda, a cultural trail exploring historic and cultural monuments and enchanting art forms like the Kathakali or a culinary journey that fills up your senses?
A holiday in God’s Own Country starts at Trivandrum and then takes you to Alleppey, Kerala’s divine backwaters. Enjoy your stay at a majestic houseboat that meanders through the canals as you soak in the beautiful sight of the paddy fields, and the tiny hamlets dotting either side of the canals. Visit Kumarakom, undoubtedly the most invigorating and fascinating part of Kerala. The lush-green paddy fields, meandering lagoons, and backwaters, mangroves nesting birds of a hundred varieties takes you into the lap of nature. Enjoy a feast here with the Kumarakom Karimeen (pearl spotted fish), Konju (tiger prawns), Nandu (crabs), and Chemeen. If you want to try your hand at the local cuisine, we can arrange a culinary class for you as well. Visit the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary, try an Ayurvedic massage, yoga, meditation, even boating, fishing, and swimming. You could also indulge in water sports such as wind-sailing and water-skiing or take a canoe into the quiet lake armed with a fishing rod, and catch your own supper. You can also enjoy a spice plantation tour at Thekkady and at Kochi explore the ancient port of Fort Cochin, a bustling town full of heritage hotels and colonial monuments.
