Coconut Lagoon, Kumarakom
Kottayam - Kumarakom Rd, Kavanattinkara, Kumarakom, Kerala, India- 686563
Coconut lagoon is located upon the Vembanad lake, one of India’s largest inland lakes with its own distinctive ecology that supports a plethora of natural life. There’s only one way to get to Coconut Lagoon: over the water. From our private jetty about a kilometer upstream, the boat ride over the lake’s gentle swells, past lazy coconut palms and houses, to the resort sets the tone of your holiday to come - exciting and novel, yet relaxed and nurturing! If you are a bird lover then Coconut Lagoon will give you many days of happy bird spotting. It will not be far fetched to say that the guest cottages at the coconut lagoon are individual works of art. They were built from the remnants of old mansions - tharavads, that were once the family homes of the nobility of the land. They were brought here in sections and painstakingly reassembled by skilled craftspeople so that you could experience first hand what it is to live in these ancient and celebrated houses of yore. In homage to the environment that supports and sustains us all, we have our very own sacred grove in the property. It is a piece of pristine ‘forest’ dedicated to nature, while keeping with a time honoured tradition.
Accommodation at the Coconut lagoon extends beyond the borders of mere comfort and contentment. We approach it as a distinctive experience and one that you will fondly recall for its uniqueness and variety. Every type of accommodation at our resort has its own mystique nested within it that will captivate you in its own way and manner. No two rooms are alike (just like us humans!) and have their own charms and secrets waiting to be discovered. Different as they are, every guest accommodation at the Coconut lagoon is united by an aesthetic agenda that is inspired and guided by ‘the regional’ and ‘the natural’. We have painstakingly sourced old furniture, artifacts and materials either directly from traditional manors or had them made by skilled craftspersons working with traditional materials to help manifest a rare holiday experience for you.
