      Everything was perfect about the trip. Thanks to Suneel and team for taking care of every minute details. It was a memorable Kerala trip for us. All the hotels were top quality. Only I wanted to mention, the Dew Drops hotel was very far from Munnar city. Apart from this, overall experience was very pleasant. The taxi driver was more like a guide and very helpful. The boathouse was clean and the food was great!! Thanks team.

      the trip was good. but had a bad experience in the house boat of allepy. the bot which was given was full of insects, lizards and bed bugs. our children were not able to stay and sleep in the house boat. we had called many times to agent to resolve the matter of house boat but the house boat has not given any response to agent or us. it was horrible experience our child and wife were frightened and this had turned our good experience to bad. the driver which was appointed was restless and doesnot want to go anywhere as suggested by us. the rooms apart from thekkady hotel were of average category's

    FAQ's of Kumarakom

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

     

    Two of the major catches for the fishermen in Kumarakom are the Karimeen, also known as the Pearl Spot and shrimp. Many of the local delicacies are based around the two with one of the most popular dishes being the Karimeen Pollichathu, which is grilled Karimeen wrapped in a banana leaf after being prepared with rich spices.

     

    Kumarakom was involved in many of the fights for supremacy between the local kings in Kerala. There are still remains of a fort wall in Kumarakom. The Taj hotel building also has a piece of history attached to it. The bungalow was built by a British man called Alfred. G. Baker whose family lived there for the next 4 generations and influenced a lot of the things that happened in the area. It was a ruin after they left until the Taj Group took over and converted it into the luxury resort it is now.

    Kumarakom is home to the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary which is an excellent location for photographers that are interested in birding. A large number of rare, migratory birds can be found here. Kumarakom beach is also an excellent place for photography and the Aruvikkuzhi waterfalls deserve a mention as well.

     

    Kumarakom is a rich hub for boating and as such, there are many different kinds of boats here. Especially impressive are the snake boats, which are boats that are also used in boat races. In the months of August and September, there are various boat races which are unique to Kumarakom and an exciting spectacle to behold.

    Kumarakom condenses the essence of a holiday in Kerala. Home to Kerala's biggest backwater, Vembanad lake, spending time on a houseboat is a must. The Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary is also an important spot for tourists along with Aruvikkuzhi Waterfall. The Maya Spa is well reputed for it's Ayurvedic massages and the traditional art forms of Kathakali and Kalaripayattu can be found and enjoyed here as well.
