Vasundhara Sarovar Premiere – Vayalar: Resort Review

Vasundhara Sarovar Premier

Vayalar, the lesser known beauty. When everyone heads to Alleppey, Kumrakom to enjoy backwaters it becomes another mainstream tourist destination. Crowded, too commercial, polluted and without the much needed relaxation. Vayalar, an hour distance from kochi, is this beautiful silent place. Its a small town and in there you get to see Vasundhara sarovar premiere. A serene exotic resort with exquisite Kerala touch everywhere, starting from the architecture & furnishings to every thing.

Main Lobby- Sarovar Welcomes you with pookalam and theyyam

The main lobby is decorated with the ‘Nettipattam’ (which is used to decorate elephants) and the beautiful fancy umbrellas. Then there was a real life size of ‘Theyyam’, another ritual art from from Northern part of Kerala. You get a warm welcome in typical Kerala style. Since we were there for our cousin’s wedding, the room and all were planned for every couple. We got a beautiful suit on first floor facing the villas, the backwaters and pool.

The suits facing the backwaters and pool

The room was Big in every manner with a small ‘Thulasithara’ inside the room. Spacious with all modern amenities, modern toilet & washroom, a cozy bed and the tranquility of a Thulasithara inside – the sign of old traditional houses in Kerala. It was more of a sign of prosperity, freshness and beauty.  The perfect stay for a honeymoon couple I must say.

The resort is spacious with lots of water bodies and a pool added to it. There are houseboats and motor boats which you can rent out. There is a small tea shop, the typical “Chaayakada” (kerala Teashop).

We were at Sarovar for my cousin sister’s wedding. We didn’t get the time to enjoy the luxury thoroughly, but we are big fans of the place. Sarovar is perfect for a vacation with your dear ones with the right mix of serenity and luxury served in the perfect kerala atmosphere.
