If yes, you might have just found the honeymoon you were looking for! This creative honeymoon has been curated for couples in search of a quiet experience in off-beat locales of Kerala.
Your honeymoon starts in the ever romantic backwaters of Kerala. Travel from Kochi to your scenic resort set in the backwaters of Kerala. It is an idyllic village set in a maze of complex lush waterways marked by its gentle pace of life. This day has been set aside for you to cool your heels in your island resort.
Take it slow: A day of relaxation in a backwater-front resort

An aroma therapy couple-massage would be a perfect way to cool some nerves after a hectic wedding

Enjoy each-other’s company as you dine in the warm glow of candle lights, set in your open-air backwater resort. Relax for the night.
An activity filled day ensues with kayaking in the narrow canals of the backwaters. On this authentic backwater experience, you will eat the local fare, meet up with locals and enjoy life as they experience it.
Kayaking through the villages: a very intimate backwater experience
The day starts out with some good exercise as you boat through one of the main rivers to a great local breakfast spot. The real magic starts as you leave the main river ways that most tourists see and kayak in a web of narrow, interconnected water ways in the backwater villages. See locals go about their life with women doing their laundry and men shooting for fish with a bow and arrow. Amazing!
