Why is Kerala one of the most sought after Honeymoon destinations in India?
Dubbed as God’s Own Country, Kerala is nestled between the Arabian Sea on the West and the mighty lush mountains of Western Ghat on the East. Its beautiful backwaters, thick forests with exotic wildlife and flora, pristine coconut tree fringed beaches and a pleasant climate throughout the year makes it a romantic choice for honeymooners.
There are Hill stations, Beaches, Wildlife, Back-waters that provide both the seclusion and closeness to nature. One could choose a Tree House stay which is a great change from the usual hotel stays. If you are one of those couples who like to rise up to a view of the sea, there are resorts that are right on the beach. If you are looking for a luxury stay with your own private pool there are enough options but you must loosen your pockets a bit. Well who doesn’t like a soothing massage? Choose a couple massages and rejuvenate your body, soul and senses to the famous Kerala Ayurvedic massages.
Cruise on the backwaters of Alleppey, fondly known as the “Venice of the East” or the famous Kumarakom. And what do you see? Scenic lush paddy fields, exotic village life, water lilies and lotus, birds, old churches and houses, kids waving at you happily, coconut and more coconut trees. Hire your own private houseboat for the night stay with a chef who prepares and feeds you yummy Kerala dishes. If you are a foodie or sea food lover you are in for a treat!
Spice Tours across pepper and cardamom plantations are very famous here. If you are an animal lover you will surely enjoy an Elephant ride. Not just that you can bathe and feed them too. Activities like Fishing, a village walk, bicycle rides etc are sure to give the newly-weds experiences to cherish forever.
If you are the “Explorers” who like adventures, hiking and camping, Kerala offers that too. Camp at the Base of Chembra Peak in Wayanad, Trek through the Tiger Trails at Periyar, Hop on a Jeep Safari at Munnar, Experience Scuba Diving at Kochi, Enjoy Sea Surfing in Kovalam, the list goes on!
Kerala has a great culture and some really friendly people who love sharing their culture and food to enthusiastic travellers. If interested choose a lovely host and spend overnight at their homestay.
Kerala makes a great choice for both small as well as long holidays. You could plan a holiday from 2 nights to even 2 weeks adding variety to the holiday. This is also a reason why it tops the list for honeymoon destinations. It conveniently suits all pockets and offers varied experiences.
Kerala being small in terms of land area has all the destinations located closely, so you can extensively travel by road to reach one destination from another. The 3 major airports which are (1) Calicut, located in the northern Kerala region, (2) Kochi, located in the central Kerala and (3) Thiruvananthapuram airport located towards the south, help in getting in and out of the state pretty conveniently.
A private candle light dinner at the beach front or a private sunset cruise at the Arabian Sea or just lying down on grass under a starry night is sure to bring on the romantic side to you.
If you are looking for choices for your honeymoon, we suggest you must consider Kerala!
