Secluded clifftop hideaways near Lighthouse Beach and luxury wellness hotels on the wide sands of Bekal - Kerala’s beach resorts are ideal for a post-tour break; discover the best hotels in Kerala with Kuoni

Utopian sands, coconut groves and sleepy villages – Kerala's beach resorts make a great post-tour break, especially if you’re looking for an alternative to Goa. Lighthouse Beach – the most popular of Kovalam's three main beaches – is lined with hotels and restaurants. On a cliff overlooking the beach is one of our most popular hotels, Niraamaya Retreats Surya Samudra, which has just 23 heritage cottages and a tranquil Ayurvedic spa. Between Goa and the more famous beach resorts of Kerala lies Bekal where you will find luxury resorts (we love Taj Bekal Resort & Spa for its focus on wellness and style influenced by the backwaters) and a wide expanse of white sand. Some of the best wellness hotels are situated here; while the majority of Southern India resorts feature spas that offer Ayurvedic treatments and alternative ancient practices, our feted Carnoustie Ayurveda & Wellness Resort focuses almost entirely on the wellbeing of the body and mind.
