It is often said that the wedding is for the guests and that the honeymoon is for the couple. All your guests, family and friends had a gala time at the wedding and celebrated your marriage. But did you? All that months-long planning and preparations would have taken quite a toll on you. All you want to do now is to disconnect from the rest of the world and reconnect with your better half.
And as for couples coming through an arranged marriage, honeymoon is an inevitable part of their new married life. It is very important as it helps them understand each other more and to develop a sense of togetherness.
Even for married couples who have gone for a honeymoon once, a second honeymoon is never a bad idea. Rekindle your lost love and spend some time with your soul-mate.
You might have ended up on this post while on the look-out for honeymoon destinations for you. This write-up tells you why Kerala should top that list of options you made and details the unique attractions offered by Kerala honeymoon packages.
FITS YOUR BUDGET
We all do want to go to Mauritius, Maldives and Bali. But Kerala honeymoon packages offer you a more realistic option that doesn’t take a hard hit on the time and money you can afford to spare. And surely, honeymoon isn’t the best time to explore a new country and understand their culture. Understanding and exploring your new life partner is the more important task at hand.
Nothing spells romance like beaches. With beach dates and beach weddings, couples seem to go the beach way these days. There is something about the soothing ambience about a beach that suits the romantic mood too well. And if you are one of those people easily turned on by a road-sign to the nearest beach, Kerala would never let you run out of options. Most districts in Kerala have their fair share of exotic beaches.
Take a private stroll on the beach, holding your partner’s hand and enjoying the cool breeze. Watching the sunrise together could help give you both a sense of a fresh beginning and a new start. Varkala, Maraari and Kovalam beaches are surely worth a trip. Look out for those Kerala honeymoon tour packages that integrates a beach-resort stay into their wrapping.
The crowd and the hustle of the beaches might be a huge turn off for some of the couples. Well, if beaches don’t do the trick for you, the backwaters of Kerala surely should. The natural entrancing backwaters, the canals and the lakes are what gave Kerala it’s well deserved “God’s Own Country” tag.
This very unique tourist attraction of Kerala shouldn’t be missed at any cost. Backwaters of Kerala are known for its captivating beauty and laudable ecosystem consisting of the surrounding greenery, plants and birds. The best way to explore the backwaters and lakes of Kerala is to take a Houseboat cruise or to spend a night in one. Houseboats have all the basic amenities any standard hotel would provide you with, but gives you a unique experience they can’t give you.
Enjoy the breeze, the beautiful views and even do some fishing. A night in the houseboat could be a great experience for a couple, loaded with all the privacy and ambience they would need. A romantic candle-light dinner can also be arranged for. Allepey and Kumarakom would be your best choices for this. Trying to book these on your own could be quite a hard task. Go for those Kerala honeymoon packages that offer the same service and loosen your burden.
WATERFALLS, FORESTS AND WILDLIFE
Figure out how adventurous your partner actually is! Take an exciting trip into the forest or a trek into the wildlife. Kerala is known to be blessed with green forests, plains and pastures and also boasts of waterfalls and wildlife sanctuaries. Be sure to try out Thekkady, Wayanad and Wagamon.
The climate in Kerala is so pleasantly cool that people here do have a hard time getting up in the morning and rushing to work. But, for honeymooners, it surely is the kind of weather they are looking for. Cuddle up with your partner every morning and enjoy the warmth of your relationship. Kerala has a pleasant climate throughout the day and throughout the year. And if your honeymoon happens to be timed with the Kerala monsoons, you are in for a real treat!
Kerala doesn’t disappoint the foodie honeymooners either. Your taste buds would have a trip as eventful as you did. Seafood dishes in Kerala are a must-try and are easily accessible on your houseboat cruise or in beach resorts. Be sure to try out kappa-fish curry, appam, iddiyappam and the big boss of all – the traditional Kerala sadhya. Order for each other and learn more about the culinary preferences of your partner. Most Kerala honeymoon packages do focus on giving you an authentic experience of the Kerala Cuisine.
Well, I did save the best one for the last! Munnar is reason enough for you to choose Kerala as your honeymoon destination. Munnar is a hill-station town sanctified with an abundance of scenic beauty, greenery, waterfalls and an enviably cool climate. Be double-sure that the Kerala honeymoon packages you decide on do include a trip to this little heaven-on-earth.
Enjoy the breath of fresh air and all that serenity with your special someone. The beautiful landscape and the misty mountains are best relished if you do some walking or if you arrange for cycling. Munnar also offers you trekking experience, plenty of view-points and campfire spots. The nature in Munnar sets up for you, the perfect ambiance and mood to make your honeymoon trip romantic and memorable.
Kerala easily turns to be the perfect choice for your honeymoon vacation. You would be on your way back home with beautiful moments captured forever – a few on your cameras and with so much more engraved in your memory!
