PERSONALISED ROAD ITINERARIES IN KERALA AND SOUTH INDIA.



Road as a means of travel allows a great method for viewing the natural scenic beauty of the countryside in South India (Kerala in particular). Examples are shown in the photographs above. It also offers a degree of luxury in that the itineraries are for individuals of two or more. The mode of transport is a car with driver. The car & driver are available for sightseeing at the destinations. Thus you have the flexibility of independent travel with hotels pre-booked in advance. Some popular routes are laid out below. However, they can be tailor-made to suit your requirements. There are two categories of hotels used (i.e. Standard & Superior). Hotel accommodation is on a room only basis (unless stated otherwise) and with attached shower/toilet facilities (Note: In India the rooms are air conditioned).

Standard hotels are simple 2 - 3 * equivalent properties. In some cases they are small family run properties which have been very popular with our past customers.
Superior hotels are generally 3 - 5* properties. Again where possible we have tried to aim for heritage properties in preference to modern concrete block type properties. Note: The superior heritage properties in Kerala tend to have a style similar to a 'Nalukettu' (traditional Keralan wood carved cottage home with a central courtyard). There are very interesting places to stay such as Coconut Lagoon in Kumarakom, Spice Holiday Village in Periyar and Marari Beach Resort in Mararikulam.
