Karma Chakra sits in the picture-perfect village of Kumarakom on the banks of Vembanad, Kerala’s largest lake. Head to the resort’s private jetty where we moor our own traditional Keralan house boat, with two double en suite bedrooms with a full crew and a cook. Special rates for cruises of varying length from two hours to an overnight apply to all our Members. Catch a fish and have it prepared and cooked for lunch.
Kerala is a haven for nature-lovers: there are 12 wildlife sanctuaries and two national parks within easy reach of the resort. This is a landscape full of surprises. You may well spot a leopard, elephant or even a Bengal tiger while you’re here. Kumarakom itself is a favourite haunt of beautiful migratory birds, such as the Siberian stork.
There is plenty to excite culture-lovers, too – including an intoxicating mix of art, architecture and literature. So get ready to be inspired…
