Exploring something new in life is always welcome. Taking this thought into consideration, I and my husband Richard flew all the way from England to Kerala for experiencing the richness of lush green meadows. The moment we landed in Kerala, I was really impressed with the natural surroundings. Indeed, we had booked Vedanta WakeUp! in Kovalam because it offered Ayurvedic massage with a comfortable staying option. I really love India and its cultural significance because of a sense of vivacity in it. As we reached, the people at the reception welcomed us in a true Indian style with application of saffron on our foreheads and offering coconut water as a welcome drink. It was really appreciative of them in greeting foreigners with such warmth.
Our luggage was shifted to the respective room by the bellboy and we rested for a while and ordered for lunch. To suffice our expectations, the lunch was sumptuous that made us appreciate South Indian cuisine. My husband Richard was amazed to see vibrant colors scattered all around in the decorations on South Indian homes and temples. It seemed as if the entire thing is shining like a gold necklace to him. Followed by the lunch, the reception desk arranged a cab, who took us to the sightseeing at Kovalam. One of the most stunning and clean beaches I have ever seen, I and my husband enjoyed a scenic walk and lazed on the sandy beach. Indeed, our dinner was organized at a beautiful restaurant on the shores that doubled our joy.
After a delicious dinner, we were deported back to the hotel for a blissful nap. The other day, we woke up to have bed tea being served at the right time. Then, we got ready had a hearty breakfast that was followed by sightseeing of Akkulam lake, lighthouse and Aruvikkara. On seeing such beautiful places, we were really happy and returned the hotel for our Ayurveda session. This was one such thing that had attracted us to Kerala. The hotel offered a variety of therapies to us and we selected the one that could make us relax as well as enhance my skin. Through a session of half hour, we felt like being in heaven and completely relaxed after the massage got over. As the massage was over, we rested for a while till the body temperature got normal and had our bath.
On finishing off the majestic Ayurvedic massage, we had our lunch that was continental style. By having a continental lunch, we felt like home and not away from England. After the lunch, the remaining half day was at leisure. So, we opted to check out the local market for some shopping. We actually wanted to take some souvenirs that could remind of exotic South Indian essence at home. Finally, we came back to hotels in Kerala, had our dinner and went to airport for boarding the flight back to England.
