Our friends who had visited Kerala suggested to us to stay in the Theme house of Backwater Retreat . Our stay here for a few days on the banks of rivers was really enjoyable . We had good food ,security and clean rooms furnished tastefully.
Motor boat cruising in canals ,rivers and the lake were delightful. .The retreat is located at a peaceful spot where the atmosphere is quiet and tranquil. The staff arranged a 2 hour cultural program also.
We stayed for 3 nights in the Palm Shade Bungalow of Backwater Retreat .We really enjoyed our stay as the place was lovely, peaceful and quiet . Since it was away from the crowd we felt so free , listening to the cackling sounds of birds and looking at the distant bushes protruding into the rivers.In the moonlit night we enjoyed watching the ripples in the rivers.
The food was fine and there was perfect security . The staff were very helpful. The rooms were clean and cool . We wished we could have spent a few more days here in this lap of nature. A memorable experience with canal cruising in boats, village walk and country boat fishing.
