Apart from having wrested the World Travel Award for India’s Leading Resort three years in a row, the resort has now emerged triumphant in the awards for Green Hotels as well.
At the first ever Green Edition of the World Travel Awards, a separate ceremony held in the eco-tourist destination of Poprad in Slovakia, the heritage-luxury resort triumphed over competition, that included some of India’s finest hospitality names, to win the title of India’s Leading Green Resort.
The resort has already won the honor of being India’s Leading Resort in 2006, 2007 and 2008. The World Travel Awards is a prestigious event with trophies awarded in over 1000 different categories, making it perhaps the most comprehensive award ceremony in the world.
A heritage luxury resort, Kumarakom Lake Resort is in the tiny island hamlet of Kumarakom, an area famous for its unique ecosystem. Set by the banks of the immense Lake Vembanad, Kumarakom Lake Resort has carefully recreated a bygone era by its timeless shores while focusing on preserving the environment and maintaining the ecological balance. Fifty-nine heritage villas and luxury rooms echo the grandeur of the past, being constructed using bits and parts of the traditional Kerala homesteads, some dating back 2 centuries. Its Ayurveda spa, Ayurmana, is a green leaf certified spa housed in a 200 year old nalukettu and its multicuisine restaurant, is actually a palatial Ettukettu of equal antiquity.
Luxury has been given special emphasis all through the resort, as is obvious through two if its newest offerings – the Heritage Villas with Private Pool, which offer a personal plunge pool and Jacuzzi attached to each villa, enclosed in its own private courtyard for maximum seclusion. The Luxury Pavilion Rooms, tucked away amidst lush greenery offer an ambience that is at once cozy and imposing.
Kumarakom Lake Resort, famously referred to by the Wall Street Journal as ‘the place for a holiday pamper’ is no stranger to accolades. It has been nominated earlier for the World Travel Awards and has also won awards for architectural excellence.
