South Kerala

It is hardly surprising that South Kerala is one of the most popular places to visit in the country, with it’s beautiful sandy beaches, palm fringed backwaters teeming with life, endless tea plantations and rolling hills of the Western Ghats and bustling historic port city of Cochin.

Tourism in this part of Kerala is well established, and as such there is a fantastic range of accommodation options to suit all tastes, from secluded villas to peaceful beach resorts and authentic homestays to traditional rice barges.

Kerala is also a popular place for yoga, meditation and Ayurveda and a number of properties have a focus on wellbeing, with morning yoga sessions, specialist spas and peaceful surroundings. Perfect for those seeking an escape from modern life! One thing to bear in mind: the 1st of every month is a dry day in Kerala, and alcohol is not served anywhere. All bars (hotel bars included) remain closed on this day.
