Coconut Lagoon is located in the Kerala district of Kuttanad, or the land of the short people. A wag has it that this name came about because the folks here are always knee deep in paddy fields.
Experience the charming backwaters of Kerala coupled with the heritage of Kuttanad. From the reception to the rooms and to the restaurant, every space has been recreated to represent the legacy of the Theravada of old Kerala. In this pristine location, you can explore the real soul of Kerala. In the evening, a sunset cruise on the kettuvallam (traditional Kerala houseboat) will help you unwind like never before.
There’s only one way to get to Coconut Lagoon: over the water. From the jetty, your boat courses out over a breeze-laden watery highway. You take a sharp turn into a narrow canal, it’s banks decked with wildflowers. And greeted with a reviving coconut cocktail, you step off the boat and straight to the reception desk, all ready to check in.
The reception of Coconut Lagoon has been washed with sunlight for over 400 years. It was transplanted here piece by piece, over several months. By and large, we tried to preserve the soul, and let the rough edges were. Notice the elaborate carvings on the roof-fringe, a once-common feature of the tharawads, it's replicated often but rarely preserved, as it has been here. A short way from the reception is a little wood-frame structure, the resort shop. Pick up handicrafts, jewelry, local dresses and assorted bric-a-brac. Many of the screwpine, choir and coconut-based products made by the local village women are also on display. Try too, some of the fine incense products and natural soaps available here. Most of these are bought locally, often directly from the craftspersons themselves.
There are so many facets to the Coconut Lagoon experience. The heritage of the old fuedal villages of Malabar. The vast frolic of the Vembanad Lake. The shimmering waters of the canals that crisscross the property. The flavor bursts of Kerala home-style cooking. Together, they are a celebration of harmony, life and natural beauty that touches every sense and takes you into the world still unsullied by modern ways.
