Most businesspersons and tourists are familiar with Cochin, Calicut & northern Kerala. Southern Kerala has a sense of calmness that is not commercialized. Kumarakom, a masterpiece painted by nature, is located at the backdrop of Vembanad Lake –a famous bird sanctuary with many migratory birds like kingfisher & the Siberian Stork. The backwaters attract 60% of the tourism to the city. It is believed the great Jatayu from the Ramayana epic fell down while fighting in the Jatayu Park of this region and the Jatayu Rock is a sight to behold.
Varkala beach in Thiruvanathapuram is the place where Kerala meets the Arabian Sea. The backwater flows parallel to the sea at Edava beach. Kovalam is similar yet different; it is commercialized yet clean with a lot of luxury hotels like the Leela, Niraamaya and the Taj Green cove. It is a major attraction to western tourists especially the Lighthouse Beach with its German bakery, where people can spend quiet time. Thekkady is a picturesque hills station famed for its tea plantations and the Periyar National Park.
Kumarakom Lake Resort, Raviz group, Spice Village by CGH Earth or a Luxury boathouse offer the best stay options. Using good quality lighting and silent wooden Decorative Fans with Light in hotel guestrooms and homes with Kerala or heritage architecture, can greatly increase their grandeur. Luxaire range of Super king sized Fans or HVLS Fans are ideal for banquet halls, large restaurants and courtyards –that means less usage of AC and effective air circulation on humid days. These have 65% energy savings and great for IGBC and Eco-friendly hotels. Tropical resorts and Luxury tents can use unique designer Table fans and Palm Fans for a fun and coastal theme.
