Classified as a heritage property by the Ministry of Tourism in India, Kumarakom Lake Resort offers a fairytale setting on the banks of the picturesque Vembanad Lake, which is swept by the intoxicating fragrance of spices. This exquisitely landscaped 25-acre resort comprises 50 wooden air-conditioned museum cottages, extensive backwaters, lagoons and canals, flanked by luxuriant coconut groves. The villas are assembled from traditional homesteads dismantled from various villages in Kerala and painstakingly restored and relocated on this paradise resort. Equipped with open-roofed garden bathrooms leading directly to the pool, the interiors are adorned with beautiful mural paintings, ceramic tiled floors, mellow lighting and cosy beds. A 250-metre meandering pool snakes its way in and around the cottages offering direct access to your doorstep. The intimate jacuzzi enclosure provides a magical viewing spot of the lake and horizon.
