“God’s own country” Kerala is a dream destination to plan a honeymoon, as it can offer you relaxation and beautiful surroundings but also a lot of romantic activities to mark this special occasion as you start your new life as a couple. Take a honeymoon trip to Kerala and you’ll be welcomed in the lush green tea-covered hills or on beautiful boat rides, made to share in the culture and activities of the locals, and given the opportunity to sunbathe on some of the best beaches in the world.
What makes this such a great honeymoon destination is the diversity of its offering and the fact that you can sign up to some amazing romantic Kerala tour packages where everything has been thought of with you in mind. Houseboat dinners and romantic evenings to hill station tours and tea tastings, it’s all possible here with your private guides and drivers. You won’t have to lift a finger, and you’ll return home remembering the places you’ve visited as some of the most amazing in your lives.
What not to miss when you’re looking for top Kerala honeymoon packages? Read on to find out the must-do’s in the area!
Go on a tea tasting tour in Munnar
You simply have to check out the lush green hills of Munnar, nestled in the 1600 m above sea level. After the hustle and bustle of arriving in South India, you’ll enjoy the peace and quiet and cooler climates here. Munnar is world renowned for its tea plantations where you can wander through the hills, and of course you can learn all about this lovely drink at the Tea Museum, where you’ll be encouraged to taste different varieties.
Beyond tea, you’ll be fascinated by the gorgeous views including the Everest of South India, Anamudi Peak, towering over the area at 2,695m. If you want, you can try and climb it for a memorable holiday, or just hike in the beautiful Eravikulam National Park. You can stay at beautiful resorts in Munnar to extend your experience.
Enjoy a romantic dinner on your very own houseboat
No honeymoon trip to Kerala would be complete without this culinary and tourist highlight. If included in your trip, you will arrive at Alleppey which is known as the Venice of the East for its network of backwaters and canals. Here you will board your own houseboat, and sail down the waters in peace and serenity. This is a little magical getaway for just the two of you.
The houseboat comes with your very own chef and it’s a great opportunity to adopt a recipe for your new family dinners! Learn to cook something you enjoy and then have a romantic dinner at sunset. Spend a night – or more if you want to book a long tour! – on the boat before carrying on with your journey.
Relax by the beach at Kovalam
Another must-see in Kerala is Kovalam – one of the picture-perfect sceneries you will have seen every time you look up the area!
Stay at Kovalam for a relaxed beach holiday in the wonderful resorts, or make it a stop on a honeymoon tour package. You have exquisite beaches to choose from, from Hawah beach with its picturesque lighthouse, to quieter and more romantic Samudra beach. You can also sign up for a whole host of water sports and activities if you’re feeling more active!
Explore the wildlife and wild rides of Periyar
If you want your honeymoon to be a bit more on the active side, Kerala will deliver with Thekkady and Periyar. Visit the wildlife sanctuary in Periyar and go on a jungle ride to meet amazing animals and visit vineyards, dams and forests that will blow you away.
You will delight your senses among the spice plantations here in the national park, and satisfy your adventurous side with Jeep safaris, boat rides, hikes and more.
Mix temple hopping with beach lounging at Trivandrum
Kerala’s capital city has many delights, but the chief destination here will be the Sree Padmanabhaswamy temple dedicated to the god Vishnu. Take in the amazing cultural heritage throughout town and visit the Napier Museum and art galleries within, or marvel at Kuthirmalika Palace with its riches.
You’re never too far away from a peaceful and relaxing stop here either, as Veli Tourist Village is just a stone’s throw away where you can enjoy a picnic by the lake. Or stay at Valiatura Beach and top up your tan!
