Eco-friendly tourism might be a prevalent thing in the West, but now it’s sweeping across the world. Take, for example, the splendid sleepy resort of Vaamika Island. An eco-friendly hotel that caters both to carbon-footprint-aware travellers and luxury-driven tourists.
Situated amidst the tranquil lakes of suburban Kochi, the resort is truly a diamond in the rough. It offers a type of solitude that is not very evident in mainland India. It’s a holistic island that is uncluttered and made to fit every aspect of coziness there is for a romantic or relaxing getaway.
The chalets are literally an all-in-one treat. They are equipped with spacious rooms, outdoors bathroom, a sun patio, a message room with equipment, an infinity pool, a sitting area, a lush garden and even a room for a stay-in butler. All the meals are supplied and included in the deal. Being eco-friendly, some of the fruits and vegetables incorporated in the meals are grown on the island itself.
The service is up to par and the 20 minutes boat ride to the neighboring suburbs is ready to go whenever a visitor asks. As if this wasn’t enough, the island has its own museum that many Kochi tourists who are not staying on the island come visit. The modern style, in this case, does not forfeit the comfortability of the space.
This is truly a place not to be missed.
