Competing with the tree-houses of Thekkady, the tea plantations of Munnar and the coastal vibes of Varkala, Kollam is no golden star on the tourist map. But for those seeking a romantic nest and the quintessential backwater experience of Kerala, parking up at Fragrant Nature will be a fairytale of fireflies and burnt orange skies.
Enjoy ancient Ayurvedic spa treatments, paddle around Paravur Lake in a giant swan, and sip coconuts balcony-side while tiny Indian palm squirrels scamper up trees.
