After a refreshing breakfast, leave for Kumarakom, a land lying on the banks of Lake Vembanad, enveloped with stunning scenery.

Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary, a home to thousand and more of rare species of birds, is also included in the itinerary. Return to the hotel for an overnight stay.
Spend the full day at Leisure and sleep overnight at hotel, after a scrumptious dinner.
After a refreshing breakfast, set out on an enchanting overnight backwater cruise in traditionally decorated houseboats. While cruising in these floating luxury-villas, let your eyes settle for the rare and the unusual - skim past Chinese fishing nets, bowed-down paddy fields, local inhabitants engaged in making coir products, rustic homes, ancient temples and swaying coconut groves. The food will be served onboard. Stay overnight on the houseboat and end this memorable cruise at Alleppey next morning.

Occasionally, walk into some of the certified massaging centres alongside the beach and pamper yourself with an exotic herbal, body-toning massage. After a delicious dinner, spend the night at your beach-side hotel.
