Program

Day 1

Check into Alleppey backwaters for houseboat cruise.

Alleppey Backwaters (Kuttanad Region)

Alappuzha also known by it's former name Alleppey. Alappuzha is considered to be the oldest planned city in this region and the light house built on the coast of the city is the first of it's kind. A town with canals, backwaters, beaches and lagoons, Alappuzha was described by Lord Curzon as the "Venice of the East" Hence, it is known as the "Venetian Capital" of Kerala.

Kuttanad is a region covering the Alappuzha, Kottayam, and Pathanamthitta Districts, in the state of Kerala. Well known for it's Vast paddy fields and geographical peculiarities. The region has the lowest altitude in india, and is one of the few places in the world where farming is carried on around 1.2 to 3.0 meters (4 to 10 feet) below sea level.

Kuttanad is historically important in the ancient history of South India and is the major rice producer in the state. Farmers of Kuttanadu are famous for Biosaline farming. FAO has declared the Kuttanad farming system as a Globally important Agricultural Heritage systems. Four of kerala's major rivers the pamba, Meenachil, Achankovil, and manimala flow into this region.

Elevation

  • Alleppey 11M (36 feet)
  • Kuttanad 2.2M (-7.2 feet)

Day 2 and 3

Proceed from Alleppey Backwaters to Marari Beach

Marari Beach

The Fisher folk of Maraikulam and their gentle ways of life have been the inspiration for Marari Beach. Nestled in the Alappuzha District of Kerala. Marari Beach is the perfect location for holidaying.

This beach in Kerala is eternal with coconut palm trees and golden sands. The beach is quite beautiful and the name "Marari" arises from 'Mararikulam' which is a local village on the Arabian Sea Coast.

Marai Beach lies on a relatively undiscovered shore between renowned backwaters of Alleppey and the cultural hub of kochi in central Kerala. It was rated as one of the world's top five Hammock Beaches by National Geographic Survey.

Beach resort spread across an area of 13 acres of land, the resort overlook the white sandy Marai Beach and has a rivulet flowing on the side. Spreading across an expansive area of 13 acres with comfortably luxurious 30 beach cottages.

The stay offers scintillating views of a private beach, Ayurvedic centres with wellness treatment, multi-cuisine restaurants with Indian and continental dishes, elevated infinity swimming pool, and sun bathing deck.

Day 4 and 5

Proceed from Marari to Panangad for kayaking and then to Fortkochi. For centuries kochi has managed to lure travellers and traders alike. So enticed were everyone who landed on it's ports be it the British, the Dutch, or the French, that they never wanted to go back.

Fortkochi is the heart of Kochi which falls under the District of Ernakulam. But don't go by it's name. Fortkochi is neither a walled city nor does it have a Fort of its own. The moment you enter Kochi, you will be greeted with an alluding chilled out vibe. You will be forced to follow it to the source. This is when you would discover the laid back region of Fortkochi.

This allure is what resulted into the unbelievable blend of the village with a Portuguese, Dutch, and French feel to it and the Malabar coast added the required spice to the mixture.

A luxury hotel in Fort Kochi, effortlessly blends history with sophistication. Step into the past as you enter the 200 year old structure and find a modern sanctuary in the hotel striking art deco renovation. The building was constructed as a court house and has been witness to many a court proceeding over the last two centuries. And now the court house has been painstakingly restored to it's present day unique offering
