Lake. A tranquil resort, it embodies the natural beauty,
culture and art of this tropical paradise. Its eco friendly

Kerala, where silky backwaters lace through the rich
tapestries of verdant fields, where azure skies swoop down to
embrace the blue lagoons, where life is as relaxed as a ripple
on the backwaters.
Bound by the Vemband lake on the two sides, the swaying paddy
fields on the one side and the bird sanctuary on the other,

din and noise of city life.
