My husband and I chose to celebrate our honeymoon at Kumarakom. We saved ourselves from all the flight travel and got ourselves a 3 night's stay in one of the best 5-star resorts in Kerala- Kumarakom Lake Resort.
The resort hosts a proper Indian traditional style welcome with a decorated thali (plate) and a lit Diya (lamp). The resort reminds you of old traditional palaces and houses in Kerala. The interiors and the structure are a blend of old enriched traditional architecture along with modern amenities.
Our meandering pool villa was beautifully decorated with rose petals, towel art and a nice chocolate cake wishing us a good honeymoon. It was love at first sight!
