A trip to God’s own country can never go wrong because Kerala is the perfect place for some much-needed relaxation and rejuvenation. It is always good to unplug and take a break from the world, while you enjoy one on one time with nature. Kumarakom is the ideal location for such a trip because of its serene and peaceful location.
Kumarakom is a quaint town located on the shores of the biggest lake in the state, Lake Vembanad. The lake is also known for the abundance of marine biodiversity. Right on the waters of the lake is the Club Mahindra Kumarakom Resort. It is a stunning oasis of calm and peace. The property is spread over 18 acres and is easily accessible from the Kochi Airport. The property offers guests a unique living experience in the form of wooden cottages that reach into the lake and stand on stilts. Imagine waking up to the impeccable view of a pristine lake each morning.
