Indriya Sands, A Resort With A Difference.

Tucked between Sandy Beach and sprawling Backwaters.

It’s difficult to find such a unique location. Right in between a beautiful Sandy beach and miles of sprawling backwaters.

That’s what Indriya Sands is and that’s why it’s unique.

That’s not all. There are 12 well appointed guest rooms, ample dining space, large entrance lounge, two swimming pools and a party hall. One can even catch the fish in the backwaters.

Three kayaks and three paddling boats keep guests busy over the calm backwaters. And the sea keeps guests washing back to the shore draped in frothy white waves.

Rooms are comfortable, fairly large sized, clean with tall wooden roofs.

Then there’s this specialty of Kerala resorts, the amazingly friendly staff, just eager to please you.

You know what happened to us! We checked in previous day to our wedding anniversary. My wife asked the resort to fetch a cake with icing and happy anniversary written. They used the information.

A candlelight dinner table was set up to surprise us at dinner time. The general manager and staff came up to us to extend anniversary wishes. They even played malayalam romantic songs. The cake was declared ‘on the house’. Just got touched.

We’re sure going back. I am recommending, highly, you to consider Indriya Sands, Kuzhippally near Cherai in Ernakulam, Kerala your next holiday location.

Tea Gardens- Beauty Spots of Munnar

It’s like a pedicure and manicure to nature that the tea gardens give to the natural beauty of hill resort Munnar.

I felt a love affair being developed with this beauty on our visit there this last weekend.

Of course, there are many other places and things to see and do in Munnar, the best resort spot one can get to. But Munnar is mostly about the tea gardens.

Aided by the mild wintery weather of the hills and prevalence of world class resorts, tourists rush to this heavenly abode in ‘God’s Own Country’, Kerala.

A tea factory visit is a must to understand the process involved in making the tea that we are so fond of. Green and black tea are touted as health drinks, but I would recommend a cup of garden fresh tea with milk and sugar.

There’s something personal here, as my childhood memories are fresh with the aroma of the tea factory that my parents owned in our small town. Now rubber plantations have taken over the tea and the factory.
