Essence of Kerala (4 Nights)- Itinerary

Arrival at Cochin

Day 1

Arrival at Cochin

On arrival at Cochin International Airport, you are greeted and whisked away to the Marari Beach resort- one of the finest resorts in Kerala. arari Beach sprawls across 55 acres of lawns, far-flung lotus ponds and whispering coconut groves, all threaded through with stone- flagged pathways. A windbreak of palms runs the length of the property, a protective cover that reduces even the gustiest sea winds to mere caresses.The fisherfolk of Mararikulam have lived in accord with the land and the ocean. It is this harmonious way of life that served as inspiration for Marari Beach. From the palm thatch roofs to our rigorous eco-practices, to even the little taps outside your hut, you'll find constant echoes of coastal life in Kerala. Overnight at Marari resort.

  • Room 4 Star
  • Meals All Meals included.

Spend a Day in Marari

Day 2

Spend a Day in Marari

Spend the day discovering Marari Beach. Marari Beach, you'll find, is the one place where you can unwind completely, without the trying bit. You can't watch TV to relax, for example. There isn't one in your room. You can’t plunge into a whirl of holiday activities like surfboarding or beach parties. We thoughtfully left all that stuff off the schedule. Instead, what about a completely aimless walk on a path strewn with wildflowers? Or an hour spent with a Monarch butterfly? Or a glowing afternoon on a near-empty beach, watching the waves change colour?. It is a complete Mrari experience for you to enjoy. Overnight at the resort.

  • Room 4 Star
  • Meals All Meals included

Proceed to Kumarakom

Day 3

Proceed to Kumarakom

After breakfast, checkout of Marari beach resort and proceed to Coconut Lagoon in Kumarakom for a short road journey. There’s only one way to get to Coconut Lagoon: over the water. From the jetty, your boat courses out over a breeze-laden watery highway. You take a sharp turn into a narrow canal, it’s banks decked with wildflowers. And greeted with a reviving coconut cocktail, you step off the boat and straight to the reception desk, all ready to check in. Overnight at the resort

  • Room 4 Star
  • Meals All Meals included

Enjoy Kumarakom

Day 4

Enjoy Kumarakom

After breakfast, enjoy a lazy day at Kumarakom and the vast frolic of the Vembanad lake. The shimmering waters of the canals that criss-cross the property. The flavour bursts of Kerala home-style cooking. Coconut Lagoon is located in the Kerala district of Kuttanad, or the land of the short people. A wag has it that this name came about because the folks here are always knee deep in paddy fields. You can enjoy your time with a fluttering resident at the butterfly garden or watching Kalaripayattu which is Kerala’s traditional martial art in the evening. Ovetrnight at the resort.
