Your Fairytale Honeymoon: Made in Kerala

Kerala is undoubtedly one of the places you should visit for your honeymoon because it will take you to a parallel paradise with its iconic and misty mountains, scenic backwater and waterfalls and the dramatic coastlines. Technically speaking it does have a wide geography and so many honeymoon destinations to its credit, which will make it one of the most romantic experiences. Giving the rest of the places in India a tough competition, Kerala definitely has its edges. You can experience authentic ayurvedic spas with your better half, and enjoy a boathouse to yourself and so much more! Overall, Kerala would be the perfect place to kick-start your new life with your better half. Here are a couple of places you should consider to make your honeymoon special.

Munnar

On the top of everyone’s list are this mesmerising hills of Munnar, which makes a perfect haven for honeymooners. Take a step closer to nature while you stroll along the tea plantations here. The main attraction here is the Eravikulam National Park and beautiful falls at Pallivasal and Chinnakanal which will make it feel as though you are in a countryside retreat. I would recommend you visit Munnar from October to November and January to May and the best resort you could choose to stay here would be the Windermere Estate which gives luxurious and romantic views. If you’re interested you can indulge in rock climbing as well!

Alleppey

What better way to spend your honeymoon than on a houseboat on the tranquil backwaters of Alleppey. The best time to visit here would be from October to February. You could engage in both boathouses and luxury cottages as you have very beautiful beaches here as well. With the right amount of privacy and freshly prepared dishes you can spend a great deal of time with your loved one. Apart from kayaking you could visit the Marari and Alleppey Beach, and Kuttanad Backwaters as well if you have time.

Kovalam

A typical beach holiday is what Kovalam is all about, this town will also resemble the one on the postcard. If you want to be on a quieter beach, then you can visit Samudra beach but don’t miss the iconic Lighthouse beach and Hawah beach as well. Your stay at The Leela Kovalam will surely not let you down, giving you the most dramatic views of the shore! Visit Kovalam between September to March as its recommended months to travel in. Other places that you should also visit while you’re here are the Cave Temple and Sunset Point Cape.

Poovar Island

A true natural wonder is this quiet island of Poovar, that has a unique formation of lake, river, sea, and beach. This island is accessible only by water and is perfect if you like to catch a wave- go surfing. All you have to do is just make sure you check in to Estuary Island Resort and enjoy the views of both lake and Poovar beach. Visit the beach, or take the backwaters, you could even try and visit the nearby villages. This island can also surprise you with the seafood, and you can have a candlelight dinner set up by the lake and just enjoy spectacular views with your better half.
