TEA BY THE LAKE: Niraamaya Backwaters & Beyond overlooks the famed Lake Vembanad, making it romantically private. We can arrange your tea setup by the lake either at pre-dawn with the first rays of the sun, or for high tea in the evening, where you can watch the golden sun sink into the horizon.

The direct interaction with local culture, traditions and livelihood activities such as coconut palm frond weaving, screw pine making, or fishing offer a peak into the village life.
