It was my wife’s first birthday approaching after our wedding and I wanted to take her to a destination that is tranquil and mesmerizing. So, I decided on Varkala beach. But, the question was of a comfortable stay within my budget and I started researching for a perfect hotels in Varkala. Then, I came across Vedanta Wake up that offered just the right facilities within my stringent budget. After finalizing everything, I booked the tickets and told my wife that I am taking her a place that is no less than heaven. She was excited enough to know that her first birthday after marriage will be celebrated in a special way.
As we got down at Trivandrum International Airport, it was quite a surprise to see that a guy was standing with a hoarding bearing our names. The taxi was sent by the Vedanta Wake up to pick us and drop to the destination point at the hotel. It was truly a wonderful service from them because the taxi guy kept on telling us about various places or thing that came on the way. I was really happy because my love was excited to be in South India. She has always loved this part because she was born in Trivandrum; but, brought up in Delhi. On reaching the hotel, we were welcomed with the traditional coconut water and the reception guys gave us the keys.
To our amazement, the room was quite spacious and well decorated with flowers as I had guided them to do over the phone. My wife clung to me in happiness because she was enthralled on seeing the entire arrangement. Then, we were informed by the staff to savor on South Indian delicacies at the buffet dinner. After finishing the dinner, we went to the room that was sea facing. We woke the next day at the alarming call of the receptionist for breakfast after an hour. So, we got ready immediately and went down at the restaurant for breakfast; where we met a lot of couples. Some of them came there for honeymoon.
Indeed, we saw that there was a lounge that had some games arrangement and my favorite guitar. I started playing guitar and sung a romantic song for my wife. Though, she felt shy; but, other couples clapped in praise. Now, this was a moment to cherish always. Then, on our request, the hotel staff organized a trip to Varkala Beach. The beach was quite clean and enabled us to enjoy our visit to the beach. We lazed on the golden beach and played a little football with each other. Followed by this, we went to have lunch at the nearby restaurant.
After that, it was local sightseeing and back to the hotel for dinner. On the other day, we went on a shopping stroll. From the nearby market, I bought wall hangings and some traditional stuff to decorate home and came back to the hotel to pick our luggage for flight back home. It was truly a wonderful experience at Vedanta Wake up.
