  • Accommodation at Hotel Kumarakom Lake Resort :

    They are straight out of a fairy tale. Cute cottages blending old-world charm with befitting modern amenities. The intricately carved wooden walls and the roof within the cottage are of hand polished wooden panels. The front door is a sight to behold, banded with handcrafted grass locks of brass. All furniture are original antiques.

    Even the light switches and shades reflect an age when time moved at a leisurely pace. Paintings by renowned artists adorn the walls. They depict scenes from Hindu epics and are in the temple mural style. Each cottage has a private courtyard and a sunken bath set in a small open-air garden. Just imagine bathing under a moonlit sky or in the rain! And that too in complete privacy.

  • Dining :

    Ettukettu' (8-sided) restaurant.

    Holding court regally is the Ettukettu. A multi cuisine 115 seater Specialty Restaurant (A/c and non A/c). It occupies, aptly, a pride of place in the centre of the complex. And lining one corner of the Ettukettu is the well appointed bar.

    Stroll leisurely down the verdant lawns to this magnificent traditional structure which formerly housed a noble family. Park yourself and choose from a choice ranging from Continental, Chinese, Muglai, North Indian or Traditional Kerala cooking. Of course, we proudly recommend you choose the latter. And rest assured, Kerala cooking is not as hot as its counterparts from neighboring states. Kerala curries usually have very little chillies and is mostly flavored with ginger, cardamom, garlic, cinnamon etc.

    At the Ettukettu Restaurant, stress is on ethnic Kerala cooking. Specialty served here include Syrian Christian Duck Roast, Duck Curry, Karimeen Pollichuthu, Karimeen Mappas, soft spongy rice bread called Appams, Thamarappam speciality, Iddiappams (string hoppers).

    Try out "Karimeen Pollichatu" the banana leaf-wrapped Pearl Spot Fish lavishly marinated in speciall spice mix and grilled. Kerala style curries, be it of vegetable, meat or fish, are usually generously creamed with coconut milk and often spiked with tamarind, raw mangoes or jaggery.

    The first choice for breakfast dish is the "Puttu" (rice flour dough layered with grated coconut and steamed in hollow bamboo cylinders) eaten with spicy curry made of chickpeas.

    Once a week, the restaurant has a cook-out where one special item is cooked right in front of the guests.

    Coffee shop Anytime you feel like a nibble, make thee to the coffee shop. Hot packoras, samosas, dosas and hot steaming coffee, your favorite soft drink or a variety of ice-creams.

    Outdoor barbecue How about a barbecue, in a golden sunset, under starry skies, under swaying palms on a moonlit night? Right beside the pool to the side of the Arts Centre (where the cultural performances are staged). Enjoy tasty Kebabs while you watch Gods take centre stage. Or the performance of a live band.

    ‘Ettukettu’ (8-sided) restaurant - a traditional Kerala mansion, once home to the most prominent family in the community, today it serves up a host of mouthwatering Indian, Chinese or Continental delicacies.

  • The driver Krishna was outstanding, polite, well-dressed and very patient. The road conditions were hazardous at times, but he negotiated them very capably. This is the second time I have used your company and I am extremely satisfied with your service. I will continue to recommend your company to colleagues visiting India and will be in touch for my next trip.......said Randy Bindra, USA travelled through us from 04 Mar. to 09 Mar. 2013
  • We would like to thank you and your colleagues for a very well organised three week holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed it and everything worked very well. The overnight on the houseboat was a wonderful experience, it was such a change from being on the busy road, and to have the peace, silence and tranquillity for nearly 24 hours was indeed very nice. So, we can also recommend that and the two crew were very good indeed, and we thoroughly enjoyed the meals they provided for us. It was really good experience..........said Ketty Tomes, UK travelled through us from 28 Jan. to 17 Feb. 2013
  • Thank you very much for great trip in India. My 4th trip to India has made that I’m more addicted to India than I was before (I thought that I couldn’t be more addicted but I was wrong). I tell only positive things to all my friends about my trip and TSI. Maybe my girl friend decides to visit South India with 3 other girls. I also look forward to visit Ladakh and Kashmir.........said Robert, Poland travelled through us from 29 Jan. to 13 Feb. 2013
  • Dear Manoj,
    Everyone is safely home again after our spice discovery tour, and we can definitely consider it one of our successes. Once again you won everyone’s hearts with your thoughtfulness and thoroughness in all our activities. I don’t know how we would have coped with the flight cancellations between Udaipur and Madurai if you had not been there to sort it out! ..............said Liz and Ian, Australia travelled through us from 13 Jan. to 29 Jan. 2013
  • Dear Manoj,
    Our tour of your wonderful country was fantastic. I was returning, after 36 years, but it was Helen’s first time and she loved every minute of the amazing journey. Our precious eighteen days seemed to stretch—there was so much to see and do! Each night we went to bed tired, and occasionally exhausted. And so, we really appreciated the extra effort made by all the Indian hotels to provide us with additional length in our double beds. Thanks you for making those arrangements. We were always very comfortable at night so we woke up refreshed, ready to enjoy the delights of the next day.........said Helen & Richard Walker, Australia travelled through us from 13 Jan. to 29 Jan. 2013
  • We just want to thank for the amazing service provided to us. We are very happy and impressed with all assistance and support you gave us during the whole trip......said Manha Cleusa, Brazil travelled through us from 22 Oct. to 02 Nov. 2012
  • We have enjoyed our trip to India and will certainly recommend TSI to any friends who wish to visit your beautiful country.....Dr. Chanvit, Thailand travelled through us from 11 Feb. to 20 Feb. 2012
