CGH Earth Hotels Package (7 Nights)- Itinerary

Day 1

Arrival at Cochin

Your chauffeur will meet your flight and you will be whisked away to the delights of Fort Kochi. Wander amongst the antique shops on Jews Street or in the Mattancherry  old spice market around the busy harbour.  Savour the very visible colonial past of an area that has British, Dutch and Portuguese influences all fused with local Indian culture and traditions.  After a Harbour Cruise in the evening, you will stay overnight in Cochin at a CGH Resort.

Day 2

Trip to Thekkady

Wave goodbye to the modern digital era and head for something altogether more genuine and authentic, arrive at the Spice Village in Thekkady.   Lunch is taken at the Spice Village and there are plenty of activities for keen chefs and foodies such as cooking demonstrations, a chance to really understand the local cuisine as well as taste it. 

Your accommodation is constructed of brick and log villas with a thatched roof of elephant grass, woven in the same traditional techniques as the ancient tribal huts of yesteryear.  Modern amenities are included but they are scaled back so they remain available but never intrusive.  Stone floors are underfoot and the sound of television is replaced with the chatter of birdsong.

Day 3

Enjoy Thekkady

A day in Thekkady gives you the opportunity to visit the spice or tea plantations but if you are an animal freak rather than a food junkie, you will be keen to head off into Periyar National Park.  Take one of our resident naturalists along and experience a really instructive tour of the beautiful scenery with a close commentary on the local fauna and flora.  Set the pace with a half-day stroll or get right in amongst it with an overnight jungle tour.  Thekkady also offers you the opportunity of dropping in on a tribal village. 

See at first hand a lifestyle that is nearly extinct in the modern world, old traditions of herding and bee-keeping which sustain local communities, age-old practices which sit in perfect harmony with the environment.  Stay overnight at the Spice Village modelled on the original homes of the Manan tribe.

Day 4

Trip to Kumarakom

Kumarakom sits on the banks of Lake Vembanad.  A boat awaits you for a river cruise to Coconut Lagoon, an picturesque responsible tourism  resort created from restored wooden native homes  in Kerala called tharavads which have been brought to life in this exotic and tranquil location.  Coconut Lagoon sits on a network of canals in and around the Kavanar River which you will have ample time to explore on a sunset cruise in a converted rice boat.  Dinner is a wholly inclusive experience with the Chef demonstrating some traditional Kerala dishes, acquire some new skills and enjoy eating the results.

Day 5

Guided Tour of Kumarakom

Wake from slumber to the sounds of exotic birds and start your day with a yoga session designed to both restore and invigorate body and mind.  After breakfast, a local naturalist will accompany you to the bird sanctuary and identify and the birds that were your morning alarm call.  The afternoon is yours to while away in the beautiful natural surroundings of Lake Vembanad, one of India’s largest lakes followed by dinner with the resident Chef.  Sit back and observe as he creates authentic Indian dishes, the chance to understand the techniques and culture which surround the local food you are eating.

  • Room 4 Star
  • Meals All Meals included

Day 6

Trip to Marari Beach Resort

Meet the new day with another yoga session before checking out and heading off to Marari Beach.  The beach is stunning at Marari but there is so much more on offer.  Fruit trees, lily ponds and coconut groves contribute to this peaceful paradise, deliberately absent the gaudy trappings of modern tourism and daily life.  There is a four-acre organic garden which contributes produce for the visitors’ kitchen, you can help to pick some if you want to.  This is about waterside living at its very best, not a holiday which sits at odds with such a beautiful environment.  Relax and unwind, indulge in a cookery class before dinner.

Day 7

Guided Tour of Mararikulam- The Fishing Village

Spend some time exploring Mararikulam and the local nearby fishing villages, either on foot or by bike.  This is the chance to see local communities sustained by this wonderful landscape.  Admire the simplicity of their lives with perhaps a little touch of envy.  Wander the Ayurvedic garden with its plentiful medicinal herbs used in oil form for massages and as treatment balms.  Mararikulam is about truly understanding how to live with and benefit from nature.  It is the epitome of a holistic existence and captures the essence of the Kerala natives

Day 8

Departure & Drop at Airport

Mentally and physically refreshed, light of spirit, it is time to leave Kerala, invigorated and rejuvenated and with perhaps, just a tinge of regret.  Let your memories of Kerala be more than just images on a digital device, this tour is a life-enhancing and life-changing experience, reawaken the inner you.
