Best Places for Vacation in India | Postcards From Kerala

Saturday, 15 March 2014 / , , , , , ,


Today's post is in continuation to my previous post on my travel diaries, just a different author . I persuaded my hubs to do a guest post on my blog, while I intend to go on a spring sabbatical. Since he is a hotelier, and a frequent traveler, he is better equipped to do a complete justice for a travel story. I thought of  giving his hitherto hidden travel bugs and avid eye for quality -  a voice, through my blog space and starting a string of travel post on thefashioflite.com . Guys- Is it a nice idea or should I separate him out ?
At least Let's hear it from him :

Experiencing nature in all its curative best without compromising on the creature comforts is the best part. The name Anantya (infinite) does only half the justice to the infinite natural concoction of waterfront,cloud covered mountains,occasional rainfall,misty rubber plantations,huge variety of local birds,etc.etc.
Maybe if the owners could add another letter to the name to make the total letter count to 8 which is a Chinese favorite as it connects the heaven and earth-Anantyaa.
The vacation at Anantya Resort, Trivandrum,Kerala, was very special for my Family.  We were mesmerized with the sights, smells and sounds (or the lack of it) of this enchanted place.
Pristine nature views all around, unbroken by man made structures, is a rarity which we seldom experience.The sprawling Chittar lake literally hugs Anantya resort from three sides.The beautiful resort nestles quaintly in the blue waters and Rubber Plantations.  Anantya Resort truly enabled us to immerse in nature.
The towering ranges of the Western Ghats capped the scenery, making it picture post card perfect.The breeze and the greenery rejuvenated the soul and filled us with a sense of well being.
The private villas, open vistas, and the alluring restaurant and bars, the welcoming blue waters of the swimming pool and the abundant lily and lotus ponds all around, offer a heady mix for the guests.
Opportunity to commune with other visitors abounded at the Swaad- their lake facing restaurant and the deck bar. 
Oh ! the breeze at the Swaad Restaurant literally and figuratively gives one an opportunity to let the hair down.
I- The Pool Villa with an outdoor private pool and garden space is probably the best waterfront hotel accommodation in Kerala.

 II-The huge and spacious Bathroom with Jacuzzi and open air shower area
III- villa-Poolside at night
IV- The Spacious Bedroom with our monster kid
L- head chef, C- myself ,R- Resort Manager
I- Yali(the demon god) your private water fall
II-Enjoy your wine in the bath-tub with a peek at the lake and mountains through the glass partitions
III-Our lil spa space by the waterfall
From playing Badminton and Volleyball to reading a good book on the quiet shores of the lake or Enjoying a rejuvenating Ayurvedic Spa to attending Yoga lessons a midst natural surroundings there is no dearth of activities to immerse in . Pure luxury !!
Anantya waterfront Resorts,Kerala has unleashed the writer in me. Maybe a week long stay could do some justice to the place . Wishing Anantya all the success with an endless stream of discerning visitors, wanting to invigorate their souls !
