Coconut Lagoon

There are so many facets to the Coconut Lagoon experience. The heritage of the old fuedal villages of Malabar. The vast frolic of the Vembanad lake. The shimmering waters of the canals that criss-cross the property. The flavour bursts of Kerala home-style cooking.

Together, they are a celebration of harmony, life and natural beauty that touches every sense and takes you into a world still unsullied by modern ways.

 
 


Heritage

Restoring A Fading World
The distinctive architecture of Coconut Lagoon has its own tales to tell. Some of these mansions are over 150 years old, and were transplanted here, beam by beam, timber by timber, from the old houses of the county that had fallen to ruin.

~ Restoring them was a process that took several years and much love and labour. Our first task was to track down the Aasaris, descendants of the master craftsmen who had originally created these dwellings. By now, sadly, the old crafts were dying, the young lured away by lucrative city jobs. The team we finally found were men well into their 60's. And the styled woodwork and fine detail of Coconut Lagoon's mansions is a tribute to their skill, patience and devotion.

 

Living Spaces

Each time you visit Coconut Lagoon, you're quite likely to have a different experience, not just outside your room but in it too. Every piece of furniture has been meticulously chosen to give our interiors an individual look.

Villas will have different beds, cupboards and chests of drawers that we've sourced, not from a store but slowly, from traditional homes and of course, the famed craftsmen of the region. Furnishings too rely on local materials, offset with linen, rough-woven cotton and other natural fabrics.
