– Stay at Kondai Lip –
Kondai Lip is a beautiful backwater heritage resort adorned with aristocratic wooden houses. The cottages are all over a hundred years old and were once traditional homes that have been trans-located! The cottages look out at canals on two sides and are elegantly furnished and equipped with all modern amenities.
Kondai Lip is a naturally designed island resort, set amidst tall palm and coconut trees, tropical plants and cropped grass. As the resort is surrounded by water on all sides, guests are transported across in a country boat on arrival. It makes for a fun experience!
– Explore the Backwaters –
Go for a Backwater Cruise and take in the views – the lush green palm trees, the landscape, diverse wildlife and the villages along the banks. You go past Chinese fishing nets – observe them in action, marvel at their scale and mechanism.
Come and see a world full of natural beauty which is still untouched by humans!
– Unwind at the Beach –
Alleppey beach is beautiful, but also very popular and crowded. So if you too prefer avoiding the crowd? Opt for Andhakaranazhi, the serene but equally beautiful beach. There is also a small fishing harbor located here, set near a lighthouse.
– Indulge in Fresh Seafood –
Oottusala is the multi cuisine restaurant at Kondai Lip, which specialises in fresh seafood grill and traditional Kerala delicacies. Don’t forget to order some fresh Prawns and Fish during your stay here.
Serene setting for a meal
The backwaters coupled with the tropical village life makes Alleppey worth a visit! 🌅🌴
