Traditional Luxury Resort, Kumarakom

Remember watching those historical dramas such as Mahabharata and Ramayana? Didn't you at least once wish to have royal chambers like them? Because I certainly did. What if I tell you that there's a place where you'll find exactly that? Albeit without the real gold furnishings, of course.

The rooms. Where do I even start? They're like time capsules transporting you hundreds of centuries back. Moreover, the view of the gentle waters of the Vembanad lake only adds to its charm.

The only thing that'll get me out of these rooms is Ettukettu, the resort's multi-cuisine restaurant. If you're staying at such a lovely place, how can you miss out on the ethnic Kerela dishes? To all the foodies out there, this restaurant is going to become your favourite place ever.

Firstly, the rooms are designed with very modest yet elegant interiors. It feels so homelike and cosy as you step in.

Besides, how will you grab the entire rural experience without the earthy meals? You won't find fancy cuisines like Mexican and Continental here. And yet, the dishes served will fill you with warmth and deep satisfaction. That's the taste of the village.

If you want to experience the lavishness of European and Victorian-styled rooms, then you'd find it here. The class and flair of these rooms is something else. Also, since air-conditioners aren't required- because of the all-year cool climate- instead you get a fireplace. It is electric, but oh the charm! Having a dim-light dinner in front of the fireplace- now that is how I wish my romantic stay would be like.

Yet another highlight of the resort is the outdoor swimming pool. Overlooking the forests of Coorg, the sunset view from there is absolutely magical.
