Arrival in Kovalam

Day 1

Arrival in Kovalam

The waving palms of Kovalam are within easy reach of both Periyar National Park and the backwaters. Kovalam itself has developed rapidly over recent years, so we’ve opted for a quieter beach nearby. You’ll stay on Nellikunnu beach, a pocket of tropical peace only 10 minutes by road from Kovalam. The teak cottages are tastefully decorated and the beach is just gorgeous.

Days 2-3

Free time & Departure

Today is all about taking it easy. Cool off with a dip in the Indian Ocean, chill out on the beach, grab an Ayurvedic massage or swing in a hammock with a good book – it’s completely up to you. If you’re feeling active, you can take an excursion to Kanyakumari, the southernmost tip of India.

The next day your beach break draws to a close and you’ll be transferred to the airport for your onward journey.

Optional day trip

Ayurvedic Massage

No trip to Kerala would be complete without an Ayurvedic massage; a great way to relax at the end of your India trip. Using special massage techniques, this style of massage increases blood circulation and draws out toxins from your body. You’ll be treated to a 60min whole body massage with herbal oil, full of moisturising and medicinal properties.
