"Close to nature"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Jan 31, 2018
Small town by the Vembanad Lake. Gods own country and very close to nature full of houseboats and backwater. I wish the food was also close to nature specially vegeterian. Place is full of 10k-20k hotels mostly touching the lake. The lower ones are little inside. Full of massage place boasting ayurvedic but are hyped. Will suggest to goto boat-jetty and try the boats from their for night or just day time as per requirement. You will save a lot of money by not booking it online or via agent. You may contact 9747702458, ithe guy I took house boat from for 2000 rs for 2-3 hrs. Bird sanctuary is overrated and can be visited only in season.

"Paradise found"

  • Posted Oct 20, 2017
Multi coloured sunsets with the crimson sun setting into the beautiful blue backwaters and lip smacking Kerala parotha and appam combined with refreshing coconut water and heavenly ayurvedic massages. Whats not to like?

"A secret Trip to the Backwaters"

  • Posted Oct 20, 2017
Best part of Kerala is early morning when the Kapi Stall brothers hands stretch up in the air as long as 1meter to make you a cup of filter coffee is what I loved at Kumarakom! Taj Stay is simply relaxing and best of hospitality and The staff ensured I learn to make my Vegetable stew! I got to complete my painting too and watched endless movies with seafood from the river to my lap!

"Great experience"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Oct 2, 2017
Great time with family in the peaceful backwaters. Excellent view and enjoyed time in the house boat trip especially. Other sight seeing options were birds sanctuary although didn't get a chance to visit but definitely worth visiting. House boats are highly recommended in Kumarkom.
