Kumarakom Lake Resort
As Keralan travel goes, it doesn’t get much more luxurious than this. HRH Prince Charles even spent his 65th birthday here with the Duchess of Cornwall, choosing the resort specifically for the solitude and serenity it offers.
Colourful, charmingly traditional, and in harmony with the beautiful landscape that surrounds it, Kumarakom Lake Resort offers unparalleled comfort, serenity and peace in which to enjoy your luxury holiday in Kerala.
There are a number of ways to relax here, from exclusive indulgence in the secluded and regal Presidential Suites, complete with private lake view, pool and courtyard, to the hotel’s own houseboat, where you can unwind on the waters of Lake Vembanad in opulent comfort.
The Heritage Villas are gorgeous traditional homesteads, with warm, homely interiors and packed with traditional features. Each villa has its own private courtyard and plunge pool with Jacuzzi, with the option of a stunning view of the lake.
The retreat also features a blissful 250m-long meandering pool, which makes you feel like you’re swimming in the backwaters themselves. Private bathing coves give instant access for the villas situated on the pool.
Luxury Pavilion Rooms are also available, offering something a little different, but just as luxurious. Nestled amongst the trees, each room has ample space and, like the rest of the resort, is traditionally styled and come with its own divine Jacuzzi.
