On the fourth day, we will head to the pleasant town of Thekkady where we will take you to a popular boat ride in the Periyar Lake, an elephant ride and some other sightseeing spots depending on the time we have. You will spend the night in a beautiful cottage that belongs to a plantation stay.

The next morning, after checking out of the houseboat, we will take you to Trivandrum where you will spend the next two nights in a beach resort located on a cliff near the Kovalam Beach. During the two days in Trivandrum, you will get to visit the serene beaches in and around the city and the museum and zoo. You can also enjoy a fantastic boating experience in Poovar.

On the eighth day, you can check out of the resort and then we could take you to visit some other sightseeing spots in Trivandrum or you could do some shopping. After you shop until satisfied, we will drop you at the airport or railway station.

Editor's Review

The tour plan offers you a remarkably luxurious holiday experience as you journey through this beauty of a place called Kerala. The graceful cottage situated amidst cardamom at Niraamaya Retreat exhibits unparalleled luxury. Even the ultra-modern Jacuzzi room of the luxury mountain retreat and the beach resort at Kovalam are sure to fascinate you. Well, that's not all. It is during the cruise through the scenic backwaters in the sumptuous houseboat that you realize how you've truly experienced Kerala.

During this memorable trip, you will visit the evergreen hill station of Munnar and be delighted by the sights of sprawling tea plantations. The chirping of exotic birds in the wild yet pleasant environment of Thekkady connects you to the natural world in a very special way. When you walk on the seashore at Kovalam and look at the horizon, the glorious view will fill you with awe. The adventurous boat rides, spellbinding viewpoints and historic sightseeing locations will add to and complete the experience.
