Lagoon is an attempt to capture the essence of the Kerala experience and
then offer it in a unique setting. Conde Nast Traveler rated Coconut Lagoon
among the 25 best getaways in the world. Before you is the great Vembanad
lake, rippling under the vault of an impossibly large sky. Sunlight sparkles
on her waters, tearing the reflection of a passing houseboat into crystal
Timber And Tile Mansion
To a timber and tile mansion that seems to belong to this earth, but to
another time. If you left the comfort of your hammock for a closer look,
you'd see that it is an authentic reconstruction. Some of its timbers are
200 years old.
Bungalows, Mansions & Villas
Relax on the wooden swing before you check in, or wander about, sipping on
a fresh coconut and soaking in the atmosphere. You can choose from three
kinds of accommodation at Coconut lagoon: The Heritage Bungalows are compact
independent cottages, set in lush lawns along the canals. The Heritage
Mansions are larger, with an upper story defined by distinctive wooden ribs
that resemble the sides of a boat. Beyond, on their own quiet section of
lake front, are the Pool Villas. Peace and privacy combine here, with
private pools, distinctive interiors and even your own little hammock, tied
Restaurants & Bar
We have a multi cuisine restaurant (Buffet breakfast, lunch, dinner) and
Theyam - a Bar. Fort Cochin is the specialty seafood restaurant, where,
among other delights is the 'karimeen', or pearl spot fish. Sample it
curried or fried, and try to discover why it has such fanatical devotees.
Besides, a variety of shellfish, sea and river fish are served in local and
international styles. As in all good food, freshness is the first rule.
A true experience is something that must include the body, the mind and the
spirit. At Coconut Lagoon, leisure involves all three. If you're the active
type, you can take a canoe out into the backwaters and explore this
fascinating world just like the locals do. Or go fishing with one of the
simple bamboo poles the staff usually have. You can even take a crack at
Later in the day, don't miss the sunset cruise, in our own restored
'kettuvallom'. These traditional barge boats of the backwaters have now been
given a new life and luxury. So, adrift to the accompaniment of a flute, you
can watch the sun descend into the shadows of the great Vembanad.
Ayurveda , the ancient Indian science of health and longevity, deals with
the well-being of the spirit, as well as the body and mind. Give ayurveda a
chance. The medicines used are completely natural, completely safe, and
there are no side effects at all. Our expert Vaidyars, trained in
traditional medicine, will prescribe for you. Who knows, you may return,
like so many thousands of people, a convert to this ancient system.
And even if you're in the pink of health, there's no reason why you
shouldn't get some traditional massages, just for the tremendous feelings of
relaxation and joy they bring. Of course, regular doctors too are on call
from the nearby town, should you feel the need.
