The entire magic of visiting a Club Mahindra resort is in the experience that is very specific and unique to the place of visit. While South India has a horde of different activities, festivals and sight seeing spots, the culture and lifestyle is also vastly different. And so is the food. The purpose of escaping away from reality and our mundane routines is to relax, immerse yourself in a tranquil state of mind and come back refreshed, enriched and satisfied.
Apart from visiting monuments, forts, etc. there are several things that need to be looked into when you plan a trip to a destination. Sampling the local cuisine, getting a great massage, relaxing with a book in front of a breath-taking view are a a few of them. And what better way to experience this than by booking a stay at one of the properties in Kerala. Here is how your experience at a Club Mahindra resort in Kerala will look like!
The Club Mahindra resort at Munnar is one that offers you a rich experience and allows you to soak in the culture and lifestyle of Kerala beautifully. A day at this resort in Kerala means being able to sample the local cuisine like Puttu (steamed rice cakes), Palappam (a richer, fluffier version of our dosa), Sadhya (banquet served on a banana leaf) and Thoran (a dry curry made from raw jackfruit and yam) These are a few of the authentic preparations that are incorporated in the menu. Food is a huge part of the culture and apart from the festivals. The annual festival of Murugan Koil is held between the months of October and November in the honour of the deity; locals believe that the deity of Murugan Temple can cure all illnesses. All the festivals of Kerala are celebrated with flowers, colours, firecrackers and loads of happiness. And we assure you that at our Mount Serene Munnar resort in Kerala, you shall enjoy these festivities to the fullest.
