Overview


Because the setting is so incredible, we’ve devised a unique excursion for Awesome Experience customers: a cruise by traditional wooden boat around lush, coconut palm-strewn Munroe Island. It’s the perfect way to see the best of the backwaters, complete with flitting kingfishers, sleepy villages and empty islands. You’ll have the chance to explore further with a trip on Fragrant Nature’s own traditional boat, and the resort also runs a thoughtful menu of optional extras in the local area: Choose from activities including cooking in a village home and angling with a fisherman.

Day One: Time to Relax

After a traditional welcome at Trivandrum airport, you’ll make the 1.5 hour journey by private car, past cashew and coconut plantations towards Kollam and the Fragrant Nature Backwater Resort & Ayurveda Spa. You’ll be greeted on arrival with a welcome drink, fruit and flowers. Enjoy lunch, before taking the afternoon to relax and plan your programme of activities for the week. Daily lessons of yoga and meditation are included with your stay, along with fitness sessions and cookery demonstrations where you can learn how to recreate the resort’s tasty Keralan cuisine. You’ll get your first taste of the region with an authentic dinner, served in a restaurant with serene views over the lake.

Your hotel for this trip is the Fragrant Nature Backwater Resort & Ayurveda Spa. Purpose-designed as a haven for Ayurveda & Yoga holiday makers, it lies nestled amidst graceful coconut groves, spread over five acres of beautifully-landscaped gardens by the beautiful and serene Mala lake near Paravur, in Kollam.

Day3 

This holiday is all about relaxing, de-stressing and experiencing inner peace to make the most of your busy life – so your accommodation has a full-service spa and an outdoor pool, plus a 24-hour health club on site. After exercising your body and resting your mind, you will feel justified in indulging in one of its two on-site restaurants, which specialise in health-conscious dishes inspired by Kerala’s famous cuisine.

All 29 rooms provide free WiFi and free wired Internet, flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, and conveniences such as sitting areas and coffee makers. Guests will also find furnished balconies, minibars and room service.

Day Two-Six: Retreat to Nature

Over the next few days, you’ll wake to the sound of reed warblers and the gentle light of sunrise reflecting on a glassy lake. Each day will be tailored specifically to your needs: settle in to a programme of yoga sessions, reflecting your level of knowledge and with the beautiful water as a backdrop (Kriya Yoga is available to advanced guests). You’ll also benefit from guided meditation in one of many stunning settings around the resort and yoga nidra (guided deep relaxation), complemented by fresh, healthy food inspired by Kerala’s delicious cuisine. Between sessions, the resort offers a huge selection of activities, both onsite and in the surrounding area. Learn tips for a healthier lifestyle in workshops and lectures; take advantage of its fitness centre, palm-fringed swimming pool and Jacuzzi; drift along the lake in the hotel’s traditional boat; and watch Keralan music and dance performances in its floodlit amphitheatre. 

Day2

We’ve arranged a special trip during your stay, as we feel you cannot miss cruising the serene waterways around lush, coconut-palm-strewn Munroe Island. After a two-hour drive, you’ll hop aboard a traditional wooden boat and savour the peace of a three-hour trip: spot colourful kingfishers on the banks and pass quiet fishing villages, lush paddy fields and unpopulated islands, as you slide gently between mangroves and under cashew trees. You’ll stop in one of the villages, for chai tea and a real glimpse into local life. 

The resort has also devised its own thoughtful programme of excursions to help you get acquainted with the local area and customs. At extra cost, you could learn to cook Keralan dishes at the home of a local villager or go angling with a fisherman. Perhaps hire a bicycle to explore the scenic Kappil coast, or just bask in the sun on the powder soft sand of breathtaking Varkala beach (all activities bookable locally).
