The verdant state of Kerala is blessed with over 30 backwaters and Ashtamudi ( so named because it has “eight cones “) which is about 3 hours drive from Trivandrum airport, is now gaining a lot of popularity as the perfect family holiday destination.
The location of this resort tucked away amidst swaying palms and its unique floating cottages truly make very memorable experience. There cant be a better place to sip a cup of hot tea, especially when its made using a traditional steamer. Soak in in the waterfront vistas every evening, nibbling on some crunchy bhajiyas!
The décor of the cottages is so tastefully done using the local coir and wooden panels that retain the natural flavour of the region. A whole new take on relaxation, as you listen to the pitter patter of the rain from your cosy balcony, literally putting your feet up.
The floating restaurant serves the most appeasing fare, especially all the local cuisine. Thursday is the day for the Onam Sadhya, a whole feast served on a banana leaf and certainly not to be missed.
