The Isola Di Cocco translates as the Island of Coconuts. And sure enough, the resort is covered with coconut trees. It gives a wonderfully green, leafy quality and ensures that nature never feels at arm's length when you're exploring Kerala. The long fronds also give plenty of dappled shade too. The Isola Di Cocco is wonderfully placed at the heart of the resort. Encircled on one side by the Poovar River, and beyond, the Arabian Sea – the hotel is very much in tune with the natural habitat. So staying here is a tranquil and restful experience.
Unless you knew it was here, the Isola Di Cocco could come as something of a surprise. But here, amid the lush vegetation, encircled by water, there's another surprise – the hotel's private beach! Reachable via a 5-minute boat ride, it's the perfect place for an afternoon siesta, the gentle sounds of the water lulling you into a peaceful sleep.
Then back to the hotel – and a lap or two around the wonderful outdoor swimming pool will refresh you in time for dinner. There are three wonderful restaurants at the Isola Di Cocco, as well as a pool bar. Another feature of the Isola Di Cocco Hotel is its Ayurveda Centre. Ayurveda is an Indian therapy – whether for relaxation or the treatment of aches and pains - that can help anyone to relax and unwind. Yoga sessions are also available to really free up your mind and body, and there's also an excellent health and fitness centre too.
Whether you spend more time working out or relaxing, you'll want a comfortable room to 'come home' to. The Classic Pavilion rooms at the Isola Di Cocco Hotel certainly fit the bill. Set in discrete little clusters, they're wonderfully self-contained. Again it evokes that wonderful sense of being 'at one with nature'.
Carved furniture maintains the rustic feel, while the addition of TV, mini fridge, safe, phone and tea/coffee making facilities ensure that you'll have everything you need right on hand.
Do make good use of the balcony/veranda – surely an al fresco cup of tea is the very best way to start the day in India? Lake view rooms are also available for a supplement.
It's easy to feel at one with nature when you spend your days in and around Isola Di Cocco Hotel. And beyond this little oasis of calm, there's a wider world of wonders waiting to be discovered...
