Nestled on the banks of the quiet flowing Vembanad lake lies a typical Kerala architectural delight - Kovilakam.

Like most Kerala homes Kovilakam stands stately, serene, yet traditional with its intricate & perfectly carved woodwork ensembling a typical Kerala style - Tharavadu! .

Lazing on the lawns you enjoy nature and its everyday sights. Kovilakam's atmosphere is sure to take away your stress and strain leaving you completely relaxed.

Occasional cries of a boatman hauling his catch will jerk you back into reality.




There are 5 independent air-conditioned rooms -

3 of which are housed in the main building – “The Tharavadu” while the other 2 are separate individual rooms in a cottage closer to the lake.

The Tharavadu is exclusive in having a common living room & a private dining room for guests who are particular about privacy.
