Backwater Retreat Reviews


Ever considered getting off that treadmill called your daily routine? And taking a breather in a rural Retreat where you can watch the world go by at a pace you dictate? Here's how to do it. In a traditional house located in Aymanam Village on the banks of the meenachil River (which merge with Vembanadu lake) with all mid-month you need. The best of Kerala cuisine available the way you want it. No noisy neighbors, no pesky peddlers, no noisy traffic. Very calm, silent and peaceful atmosphere. All this and more less than 14kms Away from the bustles of Kumarakom. Distance from Kottayam. 8kms
Distance from Cochin int. Airport. 91kms.
Rain or shine Backwater Retreat offer you the best opportunity of enjoying a break the simple, but stunning way, peace with yourself and the world.

A cruise (motor boat) through the narrow canals would be quite an experience of ones whole life.One can have a glimpse of the village life during this canal tour
