A typical family holiday to Kerala could begin in Kochi, known as the Queen of the Arabian Sea, where you could explore the harbour area with its huge ‘Chinese’ fishing nets. Drive up to the hill-station of Munnar in the Cardamom Hills, and spend a couple of days exploring tea plantations and shola forest, with a night at a village home-stay. You can even over-night in a treehouse!
Driving across the Western Ghats, you can visit the tiger reserve at Periyar for tiger safaris and enjoy wildlife-spotting in this beautiful park, both from a boat on the lake and on foot. There will also be the chance to take a ride on elephant-back or bathe an elephant.
Then we have a lovely house on a rubber plantation, where you can watch the rubber being extracted from the trees, spend the day with an elephant, bathing her, travel by ox-drawn cart through the villages, and mountain-bike.
Descending to the famous Keralan ‘backwaters’, you can have a free day at a lovely hotel beside Vembanadu Lake and also take an overnight cruise on a splendid houseboat. The perfect way to end your holiday would be to allow a few days for relaxation at Kovalam, at a charming and very laid-back beach resort. Such a luxury holiday in Kerala would offer an endless visual feast and will entertain and amaze the whole family.

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.
Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!
I could go on but I'll spare you.
Thanks a million
