Far away from the hustle and bustle of city life, is a secluded slice of greenery enhanced by the calm, peaceful pace of the emerald backwaters. At the estuary of the Ashtamudi Lake and Kallada River is Munroe Island, a palm fringed piece of paradise with mangrove forests, lagoons and small islands. And you can take a Cruise Ride to Munroe Island when you check into a Club Mahindra resort in Kerala. Ready for a date with Mother Nature at its purest? Then when you’re looking for things to do in Ashtamudi, make sure this is on your itinerary.
Named after the erstwhile Diwan of Travancore, Colonel Munroe, this island is a union of eight small islands. The Cruise Ride to Munroe Island is an excellent way to study, up-close, the magic of rural life in these parts. You’ll observe how coir making is a home industry to almost all the people in the village. Your kids will be fascinated watching women make coir with the help of weaving wheels. The men here are largely fishermen, boat builders or sand miners. And if bird watching is your hobby, well then, get ready to spot many fascinating migratory birds. As your houseboat cruises past canals that sport various attractions like the thriving prawn hatchery, the scenic temple courtyard, the banyan tree platform and several slanting coconut plantations, you’ll realise how peace of mind resides here.
Interested in an Ayurvedic massage? Then your cruise can also make room for that. Yes, the inhouse houseboat will be happy to make a stop at the Ayurveda Factory and Centre, where you can indulge in various treatments. And if you love to shop, the Cruise Ride to Munroe Island gives you a chance to buy coir products, spices, and Ayurveda products.
Ready to witness the backwaters of Kerala? Then book your tickets immediately and look forward to a houseboat cruise of a lifetime. To know more about the Cruise Ride to Munroe Island experience, read the Club Mahindra member reviews.
