If you are a traveller and love exploring new places then a trip to Kerala will definitely be on your minds . So when we sat to plan a trip for October 2nd long weekend , Kerala came out as the unanimous choice for our family . We wanted to plan a short quick getaway for three days . So we picked Kumarakom.
We booked flight from Mumbai to Cochin . Kumarakom is further 3.5 hour drive away from the Cochin airport . We took an early morning flight from Mumbai and landed at Cochin before 10 am . Then we booked a pre paid taxi from airport counter and started our journey to Kumarakom. The journey was beautiful. Kerala looked soaked in beauty and green with the effect of recent monsoon. We halted at one of the roadside to savour the sweet coconut water. The taste of coconut water confirmed that we are indeed in God’s Own Country.
Around 1.30 pm we arrived at our resort “ Eastend Lakesong “ . Featuring traditional Kerala architecture and décor, the 4-star Lakesong Resort sits next to Vembanadu Lake in Kumarakom. The one unique feature of the resort was the small canal right inside the property. The resort offered complimentary fishing and kayaking in that canal. White swans were swimming. The property was lush green, adorned by coconut trees on all the side. We enjoyed a traditional Kerala meal on banana leaves. We then explored the property magnificent property > it was no doubt a superb accommodation. In evening we enjoyed every bit of the complimentary boat ride arranged by the resort in the adjoining Vembanadu Lake. Watching the sunset from our private boat and sipping masala tea became the highlight of the day.
We got up quite early next morning as we did not wanted to miss the sunrise and the calm of the morning. We thoroughly enjoyed the extensive south Indian breakfast. Post that we indulged in the Kerala Spa which is now a trademark and a world famous service from the land of Gods.
