Manor Backwater Resort

On the banks of the largest lake in Asia – the Vembenad, nestles Kumarakom a small village whose environs are endowed with pristine natural beauty.This area, blessed with a balmy weather and plenty of rainfall has lush, green surroundings like no other in India. Its clean and dust free atmosphere has a tangible freshness in the air that clears the head and makes for relaxation and rejuvenation.Clear dark velvet skies cover the nights and one can see a shimmering blanket of stars while basking in a cool evening breeze. Developed as a tourist destination less than a decade ago ,The National Geographic Traveler endorsed it as ‘One of the Ten Paradises on Earth’.In her Booker prize winning book `God of Small Things’ Arundathi Roy has written evocatively and extensively of the charms of the beautiful environs of Aymanam, Kumarakom.Welcome to Kumarakom, welcome to the Manor Backwater Resort.

Kumarakom is in the heart of Kuttanad, a ‘Wonder Land’, lying below sea level, comprising of a number of islands, in the backwaters. The beautiful river Pennar winds it’s way through the Kumarakom countryside before it ends up in the lake..  Amidst these scenic locales ……. near the confluence of the serene Vembanad lake and the beautiful Pennar river is the MANOR BACKWATER RESORT.  Only a kilometer away from the Kumarakom bird sanctuary, many migratory birds are constant and welcome visitors at the resort.

Our rooms imbibe the local aesthetic with elements such as traditionally designed furniture, yet keeping the bathrooms smart, bright and contemporary chic!  A unique feature at The Manor Backwater resort is the soothing view of the water from each and every room, right from your very bed.The resort is built as separate cottage blocks with connecting bridges, each block has an atrium of indoor garden on either side of the passages. The view differs from ground to first floor, from one end to the other and from one direction to the other.

You are welcome to stroll, viewing, stopping at the bridges connecting the blocks and take in the breeze as well as different panoramic views.The rooms are snug with a wonderful view of the sun greeting you each morning in the eastern rooms and the last rays of the sunset visible from romantic western rooms.Every room has its own large individual balcony built with traditional kerala ‘Valavukkal’, Burmese teakwood ‘Charupadi’ and terracotta tiles …. Transporting you to another world where overlooking the water you can feel your troubles slowly fade away.  It’s just the place to enjoy the view, a soft caressing breeze, enjoy a drink or a snack –all in your own secluded privacy, watching the sunrise or sunset, or even the moon come up with the stars in tow. Nothing but an occasional boat with smiling shy faces  or a long whale of colorful ducks interrupt - briefly -almost immediately moving out of sight leaving you  wondering if you were day dreaming.

The river is gentle and moves so softly that it looks as if not at all .The still lake like waters have not a ripple, as even the breeze seems to move deferentially, careful not to ruffle the glossy hair of the comely maiden with clumps of pink lotuses for ornaments . The breeze that wafts across green paddy fields flooded with water and then crosses. the river is cool and caresses gently….
