by roxycat

I am travelling to the above in march and want to stay somewhere comfortable - with own shower/toilet and own room. also want yoga, massage and full board so this looks like what i want. Any one stayed there? Anyone had any treatments?
Thanks for any help.

RE: Have you stayed at Somatheeram or manaltheeram?

by minnaminne

Both manaltheeram and somatheeram are excellent places to stay and their food is just divine!I stayed their two times, Both are excellent choices. Enjoy.The price starts at $74 and up, for both the resorts, But it is woth every penny.


by malmost

I have a choice between Somatheeram/Manaltheeram resort and Coconut Bay Beach Resort to stay for a month (package including housing+treatment+food). Both seem attractive with some differences. Someone can give me goods and bads about both resorts regarding what is included in the package, please?

RE: Ayurveda

by BluBluBlu

I'd not bother with the 'food' package (sounds all inclusive) as the local restaurants will be much better both in quality & price!

Travel Tips for Thiruvananthapuram

Watching the Fishermen

by SabrinaSummerville

As we sat on the wooden deck of our hotel cottage each evening we watched the sun set as the fishermen floated gently past in canoe-like boats.

These men are colourfully dressed in bright shirts and skirts. They remove the shirts as the day passes and wind their skirts up like a pantaloons. They catch the fish with long spears. They also fish for fresh prawns which are enormous things.

The whole thing looks like a graceful water ballet.

As they finish for the day they store their boats under the trees in the backwaters. This is also where they live, in makeshift tents.

I will post a couple of photographs which will give you just a slight idea of this reality of poverty. I was bewitched.

Trivandrum Zoo

by Willettsworld

Trivandrum Zoo, one of the oldest in the country, was established as an annexe to the Napier Museum in 1857 by the Maharaja of Travancore in order to attract more visitors. This Zoo was originally set up for recreational purpose only. Spread over in 55 acres (220,000 m2) of land located in the heart of the city, the Zoo has 75 different species of animals not only from India but also from abroad. It also has several species of animals and birds from Ethiopian and Australian regions. Animals include the Lion Tailed Macaque, Nilgiri Langur, Indian Rhino, Asiatic Lion, Royal Bengal Tiger, Leopard, Giraffe, Hippo, Zebra, Deer and Cape Buffalo.

Open: 9am-5.15pm Tue-Sun. Admission: Rs10 plus Rs20 for camera.

Kerala State Science and Technology Museum

by Willettsworld

The Kerala State Science and Technology Museum is located close to the Napier Museum. The exhibits relate to science, technology and electronics but are rather dated and not all that interesting. There's also a planetarium attached to the museum but I didn't visit this.

Open: 10am-5pm, closed Mondays. Admission: Rs15
