Backwater Breeze, Cheepunkal, Kavanattinkara, Kumarakom, Kerala, India
Backwater Breeze perfectly blends the ambience and privacy of a resort with the warmth of a homestay. Your host is a family of four members, and your holiday home is located in our ancestral property. We are the fourth generation of Puthanpura family. Our great grandparents came here in the 1800s overcoming all odds to make a life of their own. Those days, it was quite adventurous to make a choice of this sort considering the lack of facilities available. But they were convinced by the charm of this beautiful land and decided to settle here. Now, more than a century later, this little village has changed a lot, but still retains its rustic beauty and charm.
You can stay in one of the rooms or in a houseboat. You also have the option to club these if you have more than a day with you. All our accommodation units are backwater facing, ensuring there is nothing between you and backwaters except gentle breeze. Each room offers you the best views of the backwaters in Kumarakom. The vast paddy field behind the property is converted to a fish farm during the months of June–July and it’s the perfect way to watch the rural life go by, is it indigenous fishing techniques, sawing or harvesting. Rooms are spacious and are built in traditional Kerala architecture. Each room is fitted with amenities like cable TV, air condition, DVD player etc.
