Each cottage is accessible by boat or by foot over cobbled pathways and rustic bridges. The cottages themselves have air conditioned interiors with all modern amenities for a comfortable stay. The cottages are located on 13 islands and you can fish out of each cottage window.

Kettuvallam - a magical experience:

The ultimate waterfront experience is an overnight cruise on a traditional Kerala rice boat. The charming cocoon shaped silhouette has been retained and the interior has been converted into an elegant suite complete with bedroom, living and dining area and all other modern amenities. The boats are manned by experienced crew, well versed in local lore and always ready to dish out delectable dishes as the boat navigates the still backwaters. The "Kettuvallam" is made entirely of jackwood planks tied (kettu) together with strong coir rope to form a huge barge (vallam). The boat is constructed without using a single nail and is coated with a special resin obtained from boiling cashew kernels.Kettuvallam is a truly unique experience.


Golden waters is an ayurvedic resort with a difference. They offer you the rare privilege of Kalari treatment at the hands of experts. Kalari is an unique system of healing combining herbal oil massages with application of pressure on specific nerve points.
