Named after its signature symbol, Taamara (the lotus) this mesmerising homestay in Alleppey is situated in an idyllic location perched upon the Vembanad Lake. Take a look around and meet the hosts Mr. V. V. Babu, an award-winning film maker and his gracious wife, Nirmala in our video.
Taamara, is located in the old trading port of Alleppey, midway between Kollam and Kochi. The home has two uber-chic cottages that overlook Vembanad Lake and share a dazzling deck. At Taamara, whether you’re relaxing in your room, reading on the balcony or dinning on the deck, the lake is always in sight.
Sitting on the deck, you can see fishermen caste their nets at dusk and return at the crack of dawn to collect their catch. Watch houseboats drift by and experience the scenic beauty in the heart of the Kerala Backwaters.
