    heading to thekkady

    Written by

    We wanted to spend our “most special holiday” amidst serene nature that would provide us with hills and water body at the same time. And what could have been more better than honeymoon trip to Kerala,which is not only an amazing coastal region but also has hill stations forests, and yes, amazing seafood cuisine.

    Also being part of the IT industry and having a tight schedule, Kerala was the perfect choice to break away from the grind and indulge in a vacation that that offered peace of mind, tranquility, romance, and a sense of discovery.

    In other words, Kerala was perfect for us.

    Planning our honeymoon in Kerala

    We found TravelTriangle on Google while we were searching for honeymoon packages to Kerala. Liking their personalization option on packages, we raised a request for the same and were soon contacted by a representative from the company. This representative then understood our requirements and connected us to suitable agents on board who then started sending us quotes. We chose our trip agent and handler and were now sorted with the whole trip planning.

    Details of our honeymoon trip to Kerala

    • Cost: INR 35298
    • Duration: 5 days

    We landed in Kochi and at the airport, were greeted by the agent’s representative. In the cab, we then proceeded towards Munnar and were greeted by some mesmerizing sceneries on our way. The waterfalls enroute were grand (Cheeyappara) and the high mountains with low clouds was a sight to behold.

    Day 5: Cherai beach and back to Cochin

    This was the last day of our honeymoon trip to Kerala and after breakfast, we proceeded towards the Cherai beach. This beach is by far the best picnic spot near Chennai and we loved our time spent here at the sandy beach. The best part here was this place is surrounded by both backwaters and beach – so no matter what, fun and peace is guaranteed here. One can swim in the sea, sunbathe, or enjoy the colorful sunset and sunrise.

    Later, we proceeded back to Kochi airport to catch our flight back home.

    Our honeymoon trip to Kerala was out of the world. This is one of the best destinations in not only India but I believe also the world for the kind of experiences one can enjoy here is amazing. From the mountains to the beaches to the backwaters and cultural extravaganza, spending our honeymoon here was the best decision we ever took.

    High Points:

    The representative was very informative and good to talk to. He drove well and made sure that we do not miss anything. The hotels provided were in amazing and at scenic locations. Even the staff of the hotels was very cooperative.

    Low Points:

    The hotel provided at Munnar was no doubt amazing but the food was a challenge as there was no other option than eating at the same hotel. And, the hotel prices for food was way beyond costly as compared to its cost.
