When you see the exclusive and luxurious all pool villa resort Banyan Tree Kerala, you realize why the Indian state is called ‘God’s Own Country’. The operators have chosen the perfect location for their Indian debut. The resort is located on Kerala’s private island of Nediyathuruthu in the Alleppey district of the state. It is the perfect place to enjoy the scenic beauty of Kerala as it is surrounded by the tranquil backwaters and swathed in swaying palm groves. The new resort has 59 villas which have been created in Kerala’s highly stylized Kathakali style. The traditional woodwork of Kerala is visible everywhere. The structures and interiors have incorporated the aesthetic elements of Kerala. You can cut yourself completely from the madding world outside, though the resort is located just an hour away from the International airport at Kochi.
The Resort Has the First Banyan Tree Spa
The traditional woodwork has been done in deep brown teak. Aranmula metal mirrors and glittering copper wall hangings of Nettippattam have been used extensively in the main building. The region boasts of a rich cultural history and it is represented in the ceiling carvings, colorful Kathakali artwork, mural paintings and handicrafts of natural coir and cane. Kerala has matured as a wellness destination and the operators of the resort have created their first Banyan Tree Spa with a dedicated Ayurvedic Centre. The guests can really enjoy the backwaters on the houseboat. The resort also boasts of meeting facilities, an all day restaurant and Banyan Tree Gallery.
The Resort is Positioned as World’s Best Luxury Spa Resort
The operators have positioned the Banyan Tree Kerala as the world’s best luxury spa resort as their spa takes a holistic approach to physical and spiritual well being of its guests. They have adapted the local message treatments and techniques that have evolved over centuries. There is a lot that the resort offers in terms of recreational activities. It features a gymnasium and yoga pavilion, resort pool, kids club, library and games and meeting facilities. It also has a recreation zone featuring a multi-purpose court, climbing wall, archery range and obstacle course. The dining experience at the resort is also unique because of the traditional Keralan spices of chili, cardamom and cloves that are blended cleverly with international dishes. The Banyan Tree Group is justifiably proud of their first Indian property.
