Kumarakom, a popular tourist destination in the district of Kottayam in Kerala is renowned for its charismatic backwaters. Set in the backdrop of the pristine Vembanad Lake, known for the breathtaking boat races, Kumarakom pulls a large number of tourists every year. The banks of the Vembanad Lake are lined with several luxury hotels, resorts and budget hotels.
The Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary, an ornithologist's paradise and yet another attraction of Kumarakom, is located on the banks of the Vembanad Lake. Situated next to this bird sanctuary is the Coconut Creek, a "Bed and Breakfast" homestay. A winner of the Kerala State tourism award, Coconut Creek is the only one of its kind in the Diamond category for homestays in Kerala - the highest rating given by Department of Tourism. It is one of the homestays in Kumarakom. Coconut Creek offers the best in services and that too at attractive rates. This really is a great bliss for the budget travellers.
A Kerala heritage home spread across four acres of land, the Coconut Creek homestay is an exotic haven of tranquility. This heritage home has been skillfully converted into a modern Bed and Breakfast homestay. Though the ambience is typically Keralite the facilities provided are worthy enough to compete with any of the luxury hotels nearby.
The three independent A/c bedrooms, exotic bathrooms, dining rooms, living rooms, a private sitout and an enticing view at the creek create a magical mood and delightful experience. At Coconut Creek you are given all the quintessential tastes and aromas of traditional Kerala.
