Fragrant Nature Kollam

Fragrant Nature Kollam
Undoubtedly it’s India’s budget beachside bamboo huts and the (delicious every time) 10p roadside chais which largely account for its charm; but not everyone travelling India is staying on a shoestring, and for those Fragrant Nature Retreat, Kollam (Kerala) is well worth checking into. With second and third sites opening in the stylish Fort Kochi and jungle-deep Munnar in January 2016; Fragrant Nature Retreat is a secluded haven, peacefully overlooking Kerala’s famed backwaters, offering its guests respite in the form of sunrise yoga, Ayeuverdic care, swimming pool, gym, incredible food, riverside bar, restaurant, peddle boats (the best being in the form of a giant swan), and unrivalled sunset views of fishermen towing that day’s catch.
