Classic Kerala, South India

There’s a reason they nickname Kerala ‘God’s own country.’ This beautiful part of India is famous for its green tea fields, stunning coastline, cruising backwaters, and huge spice plantations. It was once a key trading post in the spice race, and our Nemo guide will fascinate you with the area’s history. In each stop, we’ve carefully selected a range of accommodation, so it’s up to you when to indulge in a little more luxury. If you are going to splurge, we recommend the coast. Why not? You’re on holiday.
