Kerala

They call Kerala ‘God’s own country’ and we know why.

From the shady lanes of old colonial Fort Cochin to the bustling hill station of Munnar, from Periyar to Kovalam, from the rain forest and coffee plantations of Wayanad to the Malabar Coast, Kerala is a tropical paradise and a wonderful holiday destination.

To go with a perfect climate Kerala has a wealth of holiday attractions. For those interested in culture there are the two dance forms of Katthakali and Theyyam. There are forts and palaces built by the British, Dutch, Portuguese and the Maharajahs of Travancore. The spectacular snakeboat races held at Alleppey in August are not to be missed along with the sights and tastes of the Onam festival.

The Western Ghats are home to tea plantations and wildlife reserves. Explore the tranquility of the unique backwaters eco-system on a rice-barge houseboat or visit the bustling capital of Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) with its museums and galleries.

Relax and soak up the rays at one of the world class beach resorts along the palm fringed coast of the Arabian sea such as: Marari Beach Resort , Suriya Samudra or Neeleshwar Hermitage. Or perhaps stay with local families at their homes picked from our large portfolio of Heritage homestays.
