Kerala Beach Stay – Grand Tour of India

Home Icon 3 night Kerala holiday extension from only £495pp

Kerala is a blissfully tranquil region on India’s tropical Malabar Coast, known for its palm-fringed beaches and sleepy backwaters. The unhurried pace of life in Kerala makes it an ideal place to round off your tour with a beach stay, and our three night holiday extension provides a wonderful opportunity to relax and reflect on your time in India.

This holiday extension is available to add to the end of our Grand Tour of India holiday.

Kerala Beach Stay, from only £495 per person

Following the hustle and bustle of some of India’s most fascinating cities, why not take the chance to relax on Kerala’s picturesque white sand beaches at the end of your Grand Tour of India?

Our day is at leisure to spend as we please. Marari is a nature lover’s paradise and the resort offers a host of activities.

Pick your own fruit and vegetables and let the team of talented chefs work their magic!

Day 27: Mararikulam

Another day in paradise! Ayurvedic medicine is rooted at the heart of Indian culture and at Marari Beach Resort you can learn more about this ancient treatment and perhaps enjoy a traditional Ayurvedic massage. Other activities include an early morning yoga session, or you could enjoy your last day taking a cooling dip in the green waters of the hotel’s saltwater pool and a stroll along the golden sandy beach.

Included meals: Breakfast and dinner


Day 28: Depart Cochin / Arrive UK

We bid a sad farewell to Kerala and India today as we travel to Cochin Airport to begin our journey home to the UK. Our flights arrive into the United Kingdom later today.
