Great Holidays in Kerala from the Experts

Journeys of Mind, Body & Spirit in Kerala

Kerala Holidays from Karma KeralaKerala is India's tropical playground. Although the smallest of India's states it is like an Indian curry filled with all sorts of delicious flavours and experiences. There is a little Goa, a little Tamil Nadu, a little Karnataka; Kerala is both modern and ancient. Home to some of India's most famous and venerable temples, it is also the foundation of India's long christian tradition including six churches that were founded by the apostle St Thomas. Journey inland and you encounter the tranquil rice paddies and inland waterways of the backwaters with their snail like Kettuvalloms that once carried rice to the coast and then around the world. Beyond, the land rises high into the Ghat Mountains and a mist-bedewed landscape of coffee, tea, spices filled with perfumes, tropical jungle wildflowers and, if you are truly blessed, tigers.

On Ayurveda

For guests seeking ayurveda treatment in Kerala, we have a large guide on ayurveda and relationships with both Ayurveda Centres and Doctors. Most treatment courses last14 to 28 days. Anything less than that is fun but generally ineffective. Fun to try but not efficacious. If you have a specific purpose for ayurveda, then we recommend you fill in the detailed ayurveda form and we can proceed from there.

Kerala Houseboat Cruises

  • Karma Kettuvalam Eco Houseboat

    Perhaps the most peaceful houseboat in Kerala and cruising its own grounds from Cherthala. With no engine you move at the speed of the punts that propel you quietly along the small canals in this unexplored corner of backwaters. Eco friendly and tranquil - KarmaKettuvallam is a traditional slice of Kerala!

  • The Oberoi Motor Vessel Vrinda

    For those who really want luxury and are not interested in the more traditional boats - this offers similar experience but with more modern cruise feeling.

  • Extended 3 Night Kerala Houseboat Tour

    The long three day cruise reaches far into the backwater canals where other boats fear to tread. Unspoilt and largely unvisited and so much more interesting for it. Only works with smaller boats.

  • Classic 2 Night Kerala Houseboat Cruise

    The extended version of the popular 24 hr cruise: covers more backwaters and travels deeper in the quiet beyond.  Available in different ratings and sleeps from 2 -8 as required.
