Backwaters Paradise, Kumarakom

One of a kind resort on the backwaters with an intimate ambiance and heritage wood cottages refashioned to incorporate modern comforts.

INTRODUCTION

If your dream holiday is to be surrounded by well-being, peace and contentment, your search ends here. Backwaters Paradisewith its picturesque setting on Vembanad Lake is a world away from the city with its daily stress and hectic pace. This backwater resort invites you to switch off your mobile and come on board for a much needed slow paced holiday where watching the lake from your porch qualifies as an activity.

This Kerala  backwater resort can’t be reached by road. Your holiday starts when you step into the Vembanad Coach, the resort’s private motorboat. A short ride through the gorgeous backwaters and then you sail in through a small canal to the elegant reception building. The reception area is actually an antique wooden homestead carefully reassembled here. And there they are, the extremely hospitable staff of the resort welcoming you with the lilting tune of the flute and the traditional welcome drink of coconut water. That’s when you really feel that you are in God’s own country.

Having completed the check in formalities, it is time to explore the picture perfect backwater resort. The most charming part is the bridges over small canals that run throughout the property. The painstakingly restored old structures, the carefully nurtured gardens including organic vegetables and medicinal herbs, the butterfly garden, the swimming pool with a view of the lake, the attempt to conserve the almost extinct Vechoor cows and the commitment of the management to eco-friendly practices – each and everything exudes the charm of the Kerala life of yore combined with all the comforts of modern life.

Each building here has a story, a story that is old and charming. The cottages are over a century old, with a few dating back to the early 1700’s. Each of them had been dismantled and brought to the location from different parts of Kerala. Then they were reassembled piece by piece following the ancient rules of ‘vastu’ and aesthetics.

ROOMS

You have a choice of three kinds of holiday villas at this beautiful backwater resort. The Heritage Bungalow is a cozy independent cottage set in the lush lawns along the canals. It has a bedroom with comfortable chairs and a writing desk as well as a tiny porch outside. The Heritage Mansions are larger, with the living area on the ground floor and the bedroom on the upper storey defined by distinctive wooden ribs that resemble the sides of a boat. Most of the Heritage mansions have a lake view. The third kind of holiday villa in the resort is the Pool Villa on a secluded section of the lakefront. The Pool Villa has three sections, the bedroom, the living area and a private pool. Each villa also has a hammock tied up front looking out to the lake.

No two houses are exactly the same at the Backwaters Paradise. Each cottage has its unique architectural details. Amongst the first to restart using terracotta tiles, this backwater resort has helped to revive the traditional terracotta industry in Kerala. This is just one of the examples of their passionate commitment towards restoring what is old and beautiful. The only common thing between all the holiday villas is that old-world charm comes bundled with new age conveniences. Each villa is equipped with air-conditioning, telephone, hot water, coffee makers, mini-bar and everything else needed for a comfortable stay. The open to sky bathrooms reminiscent of the old Kerala traditions is yet another perfect semblance of the old and the contemporary. All the holiday villas have open to sky bathrooms and a porch though the size of these amenities varies according to the category.

SERVICE AND FACILITIES

Despite the fact that there is no room service or personal butler except for housekeeping, service is impeccable at this Kerala backwater resort. The staff makes a genuine effort to remember customer tastes and requests so that guests feel at home. Meals are served in the restaurant that is known as much for its superb Kerala cuisine as for the setting. It is the oldest heritage structure within the premises, a transplanted 400-year-old traditional Kerala ‘tharavad’. In season, there is also a specialty seafood restaurant that serves the day’s fresh catch prepared as per your taste.

As for a rejuvenated body and soul, yoga sessions are held every morning within the resort premises. The resort has its own Ayurveda treatment center with trained doctors and masseurs so you don’t need to step out to experience the healing benefits of Kerala Ayurveda. There’s a range of non-chargeable activities that could keep you occupied during your stay like cooking demo, sunset cruise, the butterfly and dragonfly garden tour accompanied by a naturalist and indoor games room.

    The only way to arrive at Coconut Lagoon is by boat. And this allows yourself to slow down and pace yourself for the relaxation and pampering that awaits you. Upon your arrival, you are greeted with a fresh towel, a musician playing the flute for you and fresh coconut water. The Heritage Mansions are beautiful two story houses that provide every comfort you can imagine. The well kept property is full of small canals and there are numerous birds and flowers. Even if you plan on just relaxing, don\'t miss the guided walks and other activities as they provide a wealth of information and are led by very knowledgeable staff. The food is also amazing, the dinner buffet in particular doesn\'t leave out anything you could possibly desire.
