Tailor-made Kumarakom Holidays

Laced with canals and winding waterways, the village of Kumarakom and its sleepy backwaters are where you can slow the pace right down to a drift. Little has changed here for centuries. Fishermen cast their nets gracefully into the water while children play freely on the palm-fringed banks. Come late October, carpets of floating lily pads flower ceremoniously sprinkling the bobbing greenery in fuchsia.

Explore from the deck of a kettuvalom boat formerly used for hauling harvests of rice. You can while away the hours investigating a network of rivers and a bird sanctuary so large it encompasses a whole island. Switch to a canoe to delve deeper into the smaller canals framed by hanging hibiscus. If you’re thirsty for adventure, cycle through the paddy fields to see local life unfold or try speedboat rides and watersports on the sea-like Lake Vembanad. But there’s something to be said about the simplicity of a sunset cruise and that sweet nonchalance found only when gliding above Kerala’s rippling water.

Our destination experts can help you immerse yourself in this sought-after destination whether you stay in a houseboat with a dedicated chef or a water-side residence fit for royalty.
