If you have always wanted to visit Kerala or God’s Own Country for a short holiday, why not head to the lovely coastal state with your spouse for a honeymoon? Kerala is synonymous with ancient traditions, art forms, culture and offers something spectacular for tourists irrespective of which city or village they may be in.



If you are keen on a trip that promises to leave you rejuvenated and feeling good from inside out, then don’t miss out on special Ayurvedic treatments which are known to relax the mind and detox the body as well. Here is our list of a few places that you absolutely have to visit on your trip to Kerala:

Cochin- Cochin or Kochi as this city is today known as is home to one of the busiest ports in India and offers tourists a treat. Whether you’re looking for a seven star guest experience or an authentic taste of real Kerala hospitality, Cochin has the answer. A shoppers’ paradise, don’t forget to visit Fort Cochin and Mattanchery which have many quaint buildings and an unmistakeable Dutch Portuguese touch even today. The Mattanchery museum, the Jewish Synagogue and the Chinese fishing nets at Marine Drive are a must. Don’t forget to indulge in some mouth watering Kerala cuisine and if you’re a seafood lover, then we bet you’ll never want to leave.






Munnar- This lovely hill station simply takes your breath away- that’s just how gorgeous it is. Wake up to misty mornings, enjoy a cup of tea made from newly harvested tea leaves and enjoy watching nature at her very best. The Munnar way of life is very simple and all efforts are taken to stay as eco-friendly as possible. Make time to visit the Tea Museum which is one of a kind and just enjoy being away from the crowd and spending uninterrupted time with your spouse.





Kumarakom- The famed backwaters of Kerala are also a much loved boating, fishing and tourist spot. One of the best ways to enjoy the serenity of the Vembanad Lake is by spending a night in a house-boat. The Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary is a favourite with migratory birds such as the egret, Siberian Stork and the Darter Heron. You’ll also get to see other birds like the woodpecker, cranes and skylarks in plenty. The sight of tall coconut trees swaying in the breeze looks just like a scene from a movie.



Kovalam Beach– One of the best known beaches in India, Kovalam beach in Thiruvananthapuram is the favourite haunt of beach babies. Since this place is quite a hit with foreign tourists in particular, visiting the beach at sunrise is a good idea if you would prefer a quieter time of the day to enjoy some sand and surf. In the evenings, you’ll find plenty of shacks and stalls selling interesting curious, mementos and of course, tasty grub. There’s also an old lighthouse in the southernmost part of Kovalam which is quite charming to see.
