Blissful Stay at Fragrant Hotels, Kerala

Blissful Stay at Fragrant Hotels, Kerala
This blog is about three wellness and spa hotels that belong to the Fragrant Hotels at three different locations in Kerala, the God’s own country. Yesterday, I met my neighbor’s mother who returned from Kollam, Kerala. She recounted her one week stay at the Fragrant Hotels with such a great enthusiasm that at the end of a two hour listening period, I booked my 4 days stay at Fragrant Hotels in Munnar. She showed stunning pictures of the hotel’s location and the facilities. She said she was treated like a member of a royal family and the attention and pampering she received was something extraordinary. She was satisfied that she spent her money in a worthy way. Fragrant Hotels group has three hotels in: KollamCochinMunnar If you take to visit their website and look at the images, you won’t fail to appreciate their choice of location for all the three hotels. Their first Fragrant Hotels was built just on the shores of backwater canal. Fragrant Nature Backwater Resort & Ayurveda Spa, Kollam
