Fragrant Nature Resort, Kollam – Experience

Fragrant Nature Resort, Kollam – Experience
Kollam as a seaport had a sustained commercial reputation from the days of the Phoenicians and the Romans. It is also known for its natural beauty embraced with sea, forests, mountains, lakes, backwaters, plains, rivers, tropical crops and vast green fields. With its lush greenery and vivid natural surroundings, Kollam has become one of the favorite holiday destination. Fragrant Nature Resort Kollam Located far away from the hustle-bustle of the city life is Fragrant Nature Resort – the only SLH (Small Luxury Hotels of the World) in South India. Nestled amidst the graceful palms and spread over five acres of land, the resort is a consummate backwater experience in itself which for sure offers a postcard scenery moment of a bewitching collage of blue and green. Thanks to the wonderful folks at Mystikal Holidays and Fragrant Nature Resort, I was invited for a 2D/1N stay to experience the beauty of this enchanting resort. Fragrant Nature reflects the authentic Keralan way of life.
