Kerala Backwaters accommodation - Purity
In a palm fringed garden on the shore of Lake Vembanad, Purity is a serene waterfront escape in the Kerala Backwaters. The lovely white-washed house is dotted with stained-glass windows and surrounded by large verandas while inside it is filled with antiques and contemporary art. Purity is a fabulous place to relax, enjoy a wonderful massage or take a dip in the pool, but the surrounding area is worth exploring.
The hotel boatman can paddle you along the lake in the rustic punt, visit the nearby village known for its coir matting woven from the fibre of local coconuts, take a tuk-tuk to a temple, pedal a bicycle down the quiet lanes or visit the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary. Yoga and cookery classes can also be arranged on request. The six bedrooms are beautifully but unfussily decorated with carved wooden beds and vibrant splashes of pink or turquoise from plump cushions. The first floor Vembanad Suite also has a romantic swing seat.
Meals are normally served in the pretty courtyard at the back of the house, but speak to the staff and they’ll set up a candle-lit table for you in the covered colonnade, the garden or on the waterfront. Choose between a Keralan or continental breakfast, snacks and light meals at lunch time and indulge fabulous seafood dishes for dinner – all delicious.
