Honeymoon cruises in Kerala

Kerala, an Indian state situated on the coast of Malabar in south-west India, is one of the most popular destinations, across the country. Bordered by the great Arabian Sea in the west and the Western Ghats in the east, the state also boasts of being the country’s most advanced society, with a 100% literacy rate, world-class healthcare systems and the best quality-life for its populace.

Apart from all this, Kerala also displays its grandeur and opulence in the form of its diverse terrain and a solid foundation of rich culture. The serenity of the palm-fringed shorelines of Varkala and Kovalam, the timeless beauty of the unspoiled stretches of the emerald backwaters, the splendor of the undulating hills of Vagamon and Munnar, the magnificence of the cascading waterfalls, the mystical woods and the exotic wildlife of Thekkady, and the picturesque valleys sprawled with plantations and paddy fields seem to join forces together to cast a magical spell on its beholders, in ‘God’s own country’. It is blessed with the invigorating beauty of the exotic vegetation, rich culture, pristine and exhilarating backwaters.
