Coconut Lagoon Kumarakom India (Heritage) Accommodation
14 Heritage Mansion, 28 Heritage Bungalows and 2 Pool Villa.
Though all cottages vary in configuration, and some of the air-conditioned units are newly built replicas incorporating only fragments of old tharawads that could not be saved in their entirely, Coconut Lagoon offers three basic types of accommodation: Heritage Mansions, Heritage Bungalows and Private pool villas. The former have two stories, the upstairs bedroom gallery offering particularly magnificent views of Lake Vembanad.
The latter are more compact, single-level cottages. Both are furnished in aiyny and jack woods, and retain all the charm of original family homes, with thick, solid doors, intricate window carvings, and terra cotta tile floors. Structurally necessary alternations have been carried out with consummate discretion, i.e., in keeping with the style and decor of the era, and great attention has been paid to every detail. The lampstands in each tharawad, for example, having been carved from old wooden hinges. Traditionally, of course, Keralites bathed in the rivers - in rural areas many people still do - but Coconut Lagoon's cottages feature ultramodern bathrooms, each located, in an inner courtyard boasting its own banana (or coconut) tree, so you can shower al fresco under a starlit sky in complete and utter privacy!
