Encompassing 27 luxury villas beautifully positioned on the banks of Lake Vembanad in Kerala’s backwaters, Backwaters & Beyond Kumarakom combines wellness and hospitality for a serene escape.

Occupying a large and peaceful courtyard amidst lush tropical gardens, the hotel’s Wellness & Spa Centre offers pure Ayurveda treatments in a truly tranquil setting. You’ll also find an outdoor swimming pool, performance deck and two restaurants where guests have the choice of both regional specialities and international cuisine.

All the villas are spacious and come with living rooms, flat screens, walk-in wardrobes and open-sky bathrooms, whilst several also enjoy the addition of a private swimming pool or balcony with views across the gardens, pool or lake. Specialising in creating hand-crafted experiences for their guests, days here can be spent exploring the peaceful backwaters by boat, lounging by the pool or discovering the rare migratory birds at the nearby Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary.
