DINING & FACILITIES
Facilities & AmenitiesResort guests have access to a 25-square-meter fitness center and six yoga classes per week. There is also an outdoor swimming pool to splash in, a library to lounge and a beach to explore. Adventure seekers can enjoy sports like kayaking, archery and cycling on their own, or perfect their skills and techniques under the watchful eye of Vivanta experts. Younger guests can be entertained in the crèche and activity rooms or in kids’ yoga classes.
Travelers new to the region can schedule sightseeing tours to neighboring towns and villages, picnics at local spice plantations, or nature treks to Thonikadavu organic farm; history buffs will discover landmarks like Bekal Fort, Chandragiri Fort and Kasaragod sea fort, as well as Palakunnu Bhagavathi Temple. Other pastimes – banana leaf lunches aboard a Kettuvallam cruise, a visit to the nearby Kappil fishing village to select fresh fish specially cooked by the resort chef and more – ensure a truly unique, authentic experience.
Hair and Beauty
Rooms & DiningGuest cottages and villas, modeled after Kettuvallam houseboats, dot the manicured Balinese-style gardens, which extend and nestle up against the calm backwaters and Kappil shore. Attractively designed rooms are decorated in Chitra Pothi artwork and accessorized with LCD TVs, pillow menus and minibars. Light, airy spaces include bathrooms with rain showers and soak tubs, private balconies or courtyards and, in some cases, plunge pools.
There are two on-site restaurants, as well as a trendy bar for spirits and signature cocktails. Latitude serves a fusion menu, emphasizing regional Kerala cuisine, while BBQ by the Pool features fresh seafood and grilled dishes; both dining venues offer a spa menu as well. In addition, Ivory Bar, with its contemporary black and-white design and elephant motif, is a sleek spot for after-dinner drinks.
Romantics and honeymooners can reserve private dinners on the beach, along the backwaters or aboard a floating pontoon amidst the river.
