About the hotel

There are so many facets to the Coconut Lagoon experience. The heritage of the old fuedal villages of Malabar The vast frolic of the Vembanad Lake. The shimmering waters of the canals that criss-cross the property. The flavour bursts of Kerala home-style cooking .

Accommodation details

A short way from the reception is a little wood-frame structure, the resort shop. Pick up handicrafts, jewellery, local dresses and assorted bric-a-brac. Many of the screw pine, coir and coconut-based products made by the local village women are also on display. Try too, some of the fine incense products and natural soaps available here. Most of these are bought locally, often directly from the craftsperson themselves.

Activities

Village Expedition

Explore the area on foot; take a walk to the nearby village. The path to the village runs alongside paddy fields and waterways, and provides more than casual view of local life. The ideal time for such a walk is late afternoon. A naturalist will accompany you at 4.00pm.

Cultural Programmes

Every day at 7.30pm cultural programmes will be held in Kalithattu near restaurant. The common arts performed are Kathakali, Mohiniyattam, Ottumthullal, Bharathanatyam and classical music.

Kalarippayattu (6.00am-7.00am)

Witness the traditional martial art of Kerala, India's own system of medicine, physical culture and self-defence. It is the only form of the ancient martial art still in existence.

Backwater Cruise

A relaxing boat trip through the maze of canals adjacent to Coconut Lagoon is a fascinating experience, and a delightful way to get a closer look at life in the backwaters.

Sunset Cruise

Punted by two boatmen equipped with long bamboo poles, the boat glides silently out across the water as flocks of teals and other migratory and other resident birds return to their lakeside roots in such thick formations they cloud the evening sky.
