CGH Earth Coconut Lagoon

Set on a private island on Vembanad Lake only accessible by local ferry, Coconut Lagoon is a lovely and exotic resort recognized by Conde Nast Traveler as a world’s best getaway. Ethnic Kerala Tharavads (homes) were painstakingly transplanted from the nearby village of Vaikom in 1993 and reassembled in a delightfully artistic manner to give guests an authentic insight into Kuttanad life. Accommodations at Coconut lagoon are Heritage Bungalows (compact independent cottages set in lush lawns along the canals), Heritage Mansions (larger, with an upper story that resemble the design of a boat), and Pool Villas (privately located on the lake front with plunge pool, distinctive interiors and private porch with hammock). Bathrooms are open-air above and bring nature to the room in the tradition of Kerala. Enjoy delicious Kerala cuisine with a variety of shellfish, ocean and river fish, as well as continental and Chinese dishes. Be pampered with herbal oils by Ayurveda masseurs and check out the butterfly garden.
