Tripoto
21st May 2018

As every individual in an IT field used to say, I was also so bored by the monotonic life that I have been living, I felt like I need a change from the hectic life and need some calm and peace of mind. My search for peace of mind end up in this beautiful place Coir Village Lake Resort.

I plan this trip on the month of May and since coir village is about 4 hours of travel from the place I live, I decided to travel in train. The journey was quite nice, I got seat next to some North Indian people who came here for joining a prayer meet, even though it was difficult for me to understand their language, I some how make up to communicate with them and it was fun.

The Team at Coir Village Lake Resort welcome me so beautifully and it was a warm welcome for me. They took me to their restaurant called as "Oottupura" first, since it was quite late to have lunch. The lunch cuisine was fried rice and chicken gravy. I found the gravy have a flavour change which i used to eat on my place and i ask it about the butler and he answered me in style that it is "alleppey style chicken curry" and i must say it was tasty.

After lunch Mr. shameer accompanied me to show my room. The room is on the other side of the restaurant, means we need to travel in canoe to reach at the room since the resort is surrounded by backwaters. I enjoy the ride in canoe to my room. I have given a cottage which they have named as "Kerala Cottage" for my stay, The room was clean and tidy and the most beautiful attraction of the room is that the balcony of the room opens to the other side of backwater and it is an astonishing review.
