    Magical Kerala

    Jane's verdict:

    Honeymoon in Kerala, India’s sublime southern state, and a tingle will run up your spine every time you reminisce. Wildlife reserves, ancient temples and spice plantations will fascinate, there are beaches for down time and you can enjoy a voyage on your very own houseboat for two around the exotic backwaters. You’ll quickly understand what all the fuss is about.

    Barefoot Traveller says

    India’s deep south has a wealth of cultural highlights, history and colour – add some glorious beaches and dreamy backwaters to the mix and you have all the ingredients for a blissful honeymoon.

    We have created a fantastic range of private honeymoon tours to suit all budgets and because our itineraries are tailor-made to suit your style and budget, your honeymoon in Kerala will always be truly unique.

    Our 14-day Kerala – God’s Own Country honeymoon lets you discover this beautiful, diverse state with a tour of its cultural cities, epic waterfalls and tropical rain forest. Explore Cochin, sacred temples and caves before visiting the lush spice and tea plantations in the hills of the Western Ghats. A wildlife adventure awaits in Athirapally, home to wild elephants and exotic birdlife. Soak up the culture in historic Tellicherry and relax together Ayurvedic-style on the tranquil beaches of Neeleshwaram.

    Head off the beaten path with our 12-night Kaleidoscopic Kerala honeymoon, taking in the sights from Chennai to Cochin followed by a romantic overnight stay on a houseboat in Kerala’s languid backwaters. You’ll also join a guided safari, find out how cardamom is produced and stay on the beach at Kovalam. It costs from £1,010 per person.

    Explore more of southern India on our 16-day honeymoon tour of South Indian Palaces and Temples. Taking in impressive Mysore, the palaces and temples of Tamil Nadu as well as the wild elephants in Kerala’s Periyar National Park, this romantic adventure also includes a beach break in beautiful Kovalam.

    All our honeymoon tours of Kerala include your very own private car and driver to guide you in comfort through the best of southern India and relax in style at our carefully selected hotels.

    Our private tours range from 9 – 16 days and, with a wide range of optional extras, you can add on an additional city stay, a wildlife safari or extended beach stay for your dream honeymoon.
