Kerala Holidays

Where an intricate network of backwaters and plush tea plantations meet powder-white palm-fringed beaches and magnificent wildlife, a Kerala holiday will reveal a laid-back India.

A little bit about Kerala... 

Found along India's south-west coast spanning some 600km of shimmering coastline, Kerala offers a memorable location for all holidaymakers who choose to visit. Its stunning scenery and tranquil atmosphere is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the north, allowing you to discover a completely different side to India.

When's best to visit Kerala?

Although temperatures in Kerala are lovely and warm year round, the best time to visit the state is during the winter months. Between the end of November and February, it's the cooler, drier season, and as you work your way through from March to the summer, the humidity grows, with monsoon season taking hold between May and October/early November.
