All four air-conditioned luxury bedrooms look out over the backwaters.
Two of these four bedrooms have their own private plunge pools.
Wake up to serene views of the backwaters coming to life, with a background score of birds, as the sun comes up.
Spend your day in the infinity pool or just watch the kites fly overhead as you pretend to finish your paperback.
Better still, head out on kayaks for a firsthand experience of life by the backwaters.
Fort Kochi is 15 km away and well worth a drive out from 976.
