India – Kerala

The distinctive features of a Kerala visit are its mysterious backwaters, magnificent beaches, the healing touch of its ancient science of Ayurveda and the short distances between them all.

What is truly magical about a houseboat cruise on the backwaters is the rare opportunity that it provides for an up-close and personal view of a unique lifestyle that is still untouched and far removed from the stressed and hurried lifestyle of modern civilization.

Kerala Backwaters
A World of Timeless Serenity

The heart and soul of Kerala is it’s ‘poorams’ or the lively and colourful seasonal, temple festivals. Entire communities come to life as the streets are decked up to celebrate these events.

Processions of richly-caparisoned elephants splash the streets with colour to the thunderous roars of applause from enthusiastic crowds of devotees.

The atmosphere is that of a carnival, as local folk artists put on spontaneous performances at every street corner near the temples.

Kerala, Kovalam, beach

Kovalam is world-renowned for white sand beaches and pristine settings. The deep blue waters of the Indian Ocean and a favorable climate make Kovalam a favorite year-round beach destination. The calm, shallow ocean makes swimming safe and enjoyable for the most part of the year.

Cruising the backwaters at Alappuzha (Alleppey), Kerala

The otherwise inaccessible backwaters have served to preserve the unique culture and character of rural Kerala. The houseboats have all the creature comforts of a good hotel including furnished bedrooms, modern ecological toilets, cozy living rooms, a kitchen and even a balcony for angling.

Kerala, Cochin, Chinese fishing-nets

Home to one of the finest natural harbours in the world, Cochin is the queen of the Arabian Sea and one of the most interesting cities of India. The mortal remains of the Portuguese explorer, Vasco da Gama lie preserved at the St. Francis Church in Cochin, the first European church built in India.
