CGH Earth, the award winning eco friendly resort chain has more resorts in Kerala than any other state in India. CGH’s Marai Beach resort in Mararikulam is very popular among foreign tourists and few of them send many days exploring the coastal village life in harmony with nature. Fresh catch fish is always a prime attraction in Mararikulam. Brunton Boatyard in Cochin is a colonial house on the shores of Arabian Sea with spectacular views.

The Leela Kovalam is celebrated as Kerala’s fantastic luxury property though it is not as fascinating as those resorts in Jungle or stuck in thick forest. For optimal experience, resorts like Tall Tree and Vythiri tree house stays are recommended which reflect the true soul of Kerala.

Extravagance is not to be expected in Kerala hotels since the state tourism corporation itself doesn’t encourage and so are the tourists. Unlike Goa where thrill, chill and fun are the theme, visitors to The God’s Own Country seek to spend time in harmony with nature. Even shopping should be limited to spices and ayruvedic products as other products are little costly than elsewhere in India.

There are hundreds of resorts around Munnar, but except very few all of them are close to nature without any urban influence. Tea estate bungalows, cottages, homestays, ayruvedic resorts, backwater resorts, boat houses, beach resorts, tree houses and mud huts are some of the unique types of stays available in kerala. Ayurvedic wellness treatments are offered in most of the popular resorts. But if your primary purpose of visit is health and wellness, better opt the specialty therapeutic wellness centers with experienced professionals.
