With a tranquil setting amidst swaying palm groves and silvery canals beside Lake Vembanad, Kumarakom Lake Resort offers a wondrous retreat in the heart of Kerala.

Spread over 25 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens, red-tiled, wood-walled villas have been carefully reconstructed from traditional 16th century Keralan homesteads. Each villa is beautifully furnished using teak interiors and earthy tones, with open roofed bathrooms and intimate private courtyards. The Meandering Pool Villas are a highlight of the resort, offering access to the pool from a private bathing cove and peaceful lounge area. The Heritage Villas and Presidential Suites all have their own private pools, Jacuzzis and courtyards, with some offering lake views.

When it comes to relaxing, the biggest choice you need to make is between the variety of swimming pools on offer, or the extensive menu of treatments in the ayurvedic spa. There’s also a fully-equipped health club and daily yoga sessions, not to mention a range of activities to choose from, such as boating, cycling and water skiing.

The resort’s four restaurants, including a traditional teashop, offer a taste of true Keralan delicacies, along with north Indian, Chinese and continental flavours. Seafood lovers will find plenty to indulge their appetite at Vembanad, the seafood bar on the banks of the backwaters.
