Thattukada, Traditional Tea Shop
A traditional teashop recreated at Kumarakom Lake Resort in its original, rustic splendour. The boiling vessel that constantly spews aromatic steam, the cluster of garden fresh bananas that hang by coir ropes, the open frying pan, the aroma of freshly fried local snacks, the easy camaraderie.
Open every evening, the Thattukada is an inviting place to soak in the resort's ambience. To start a conversation, sip a cup of tea, keep hunger at bay, exchange pleasantries, and relish a bit of Kerala you'll cherish for a long time to come.
