Honeymoon Destination: Kerala Overview

Talk about honeymoon destination in India and Kerala is THE destination which comes up to anybody's mind first! All thanks to the scenic beauty the place is blessed with. It truly is "God's own country"
The following are the Top five honeymoon worthy destinations in Kerala:


  1. Munnar a beautiful hill station. Nearest airport/railway station at Kochi.
  2. Thekkady Rich Jungles of Periyar Wildlife Sanctury. My in-laws loved the Spice Village resort in Thekkady. 
  3. Alleppy Famous for its Backwaters and house boats.
  4. Kovalam Famous for its beaches.
  5. Poovar Islands Lies Southern tip of Kerala and has a beautiful beach! One of my friends highly recommended the place to me. She said that the beach has water on both sides and it was just them on the beach that time.
Kochi to Munnar : 130 Kms (Approx 4 hrs)
Munnar to Thekkady : 85 Kms (Approx 3 Hrs)
Thekkady to Alleppy (Alappuzha) : 160 Kms (Approx 4 Hrs)
Alleppy to Kovalam : 160 Kms (Approx 4 Hrs)
Kovalam to Poovar : 20 Kms (Half an hour)
Poovar to Thiruvananthapuram Airport: 30 Kms (Approx 1 Hr)

Personally, I would hate to travel a lot on my honeymoon. On all other tours, you wont see me without a map and a day tour plan! I love exploring new places. If I were to go on a honeymoon to Kerala, I would just stay at The Leela in Kovalam for 3 days and then go to Poovar island resort for another 3 days. Alternatively, Munnar, Thekkady and Alleppy for 2 nights each seems like a good plan for people who would love traveling on their honeymoon! If you can spend about 10 days or more in Kerala, you can visit all the 5 places mentioned above. 

MW Tip: I always feel one should not choose a popular spot as a honeymoon destination. Kerala is beautiful all over. You can visit the spice valley or the tea estates or walk through the sea in low tide to the Dharmadam island (I hear its a secluded beach) or stay in the jungle in Perriyar. There is so much to explore! 
Best time to visit Kerala: October to March. Although you can also visit during other seasons.

Any tips from Kerala Honeymooners? What did you like the most? Where did you stay?
