"Humans own country"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Planned a relaxed trip and it's truly relaxed but boring and not worthy of the amount spent because the total boat ride till morning was below 5 hrs @ Rs 8000/-, food served was delicious, but no eggs for breakfast for bread, we bought egg from outside and the CHF made omlett for us, no mirror in the room, and was feeling hot till 8pm, they put on the A/c by 9 pm onwards till morning, no water in the room. They would have started by 10 am in the morning and finish by 7 am next day additional time they can utilise for more back water rides.

Even in the month of may(15&16) it was not hot. Very pleasant climate and dramatic scenes of sunset. Boat ride through Vembanad lake was very special.

"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!
