Based on the popular movie and TV series, our Marigold Hotel Experience is aimed at long term holiday-makers who wish to live within the local Keralan culture. The Marigold experience is for a minimum three month stay. The reasons for making this trip can be varied, to escape the cold winters, to receive inexpensive private medical treatments, to discover a new and exciting region of the world or perhaps you are looking for an idyllic retirement.
You will stay in a Keralan Homestay (small Boutique Hotels) and become part of the community. You could choose to stay on the backwaters as there are numerous homestays along the canals and lakes of the area, taking in the beautiful scenery and watching the famous houseboats glide past. Another option would be to stay by the coast and make the most of the cool sea breezes, you could take an early morning walk to watch the fishermen prepare for the day or relax on a palm fringed beach. If you enjoy a more hectic pace of life there are bustling villages where you can fully immerse yourself in the culture and the people of Kerala.
You will discover the local cuisine: gently spiced and fragrant meals with local fresh sea food at its heart. Whatever your tastes Kerala has something to offer you.
During your time in Kerala you may want to explore the area and we can arrange day tours with a private car and driver to many local places of interest. You can visit the tea plantations in the hills or view wildlife on the lower planes. The area is also a bird watchers paradise. The bustling city of Cochin has much to offer, or you could discover some of the many local palm lined beaches or join in with the vibrant temple festivals and carnivals such as the famous snake boat race.
