Splurge On A Weekend Escape With Bae To This Luxury Island Retreat On Lake Vembanad


    In the mood for an exotic vacay in neighbouring Kerala? Then, set sail on the waters of the famed Lake Vembanad and reach the breathtaking Kayal Retreat.

    Luxury Island

    One of the highlights of the Kerala experience is its backwaters and its lush greenery. And when you plan to explore these, Kayal Retreat makes for the perfect base. Located on a charming island on Vembanad Lake, the boutique property is made up of two cosy cottages that can house two adults {plus one, at an extra cost} in each. The exteriors of the island property resemble a charming, rustic Kerala home with chic design details and the rooms themselves are fitted with all the modern amenities.

    Of course, if you are a pair of lovebirds, Kayal Retreat works out well for you too. They have open baths and the whitewashed cottages are prettied up like a dreamy abode. And they look out to either a serene garden or the gorgeous lake. Prices start at about INR 7,500 during off-season {which is now} and includes breakfast.

    Live It Up

    Experiences at Kayal highlight the magic of rural life in Kerala. Your booking includes a 30-minute canoe ride and a walk around the nearby village. But you can always sign up for more {at an additional cost of course}. You can witness toddy tapping or work alongside a farmer. In the nights, you can even take a boat ride for a stargazing trip. Another highlight of Kayal is the food — their Kerala delicacies are a must try!
