Backwater Ripples Kumarakam

2004

In the backwaters of Kerala, a beauty to be cherished in all seasons is the village of Kumarakom set in the backdrop of Lake Vembanad. A small plot set along the banks of the lake, houses the Back-water Ripples Resort.
The layout is designed in such a way that every cottage gets the lake view, by placing them in a staggered row. The bedrooms are further raised on to a mezzanine level for better views, while still ensuring sufficient privacy.
The resort also sports all the amenities required for a wide range of vacations, along with 21 cottages and 12 rooms, all planned to sit aptly in the site. Contemporary design of the front office and con-ference rooms, a dining area with bar, a lawn for large gatherings, and a swimming pool blending in with the lake.
Though the cottages reflect a variety of styles, the construction follows traditional Kerala details, with a generous use of timber, while other materials include bricks, stone and Mangalore tiles. The use of these natural materials make the footprint lighter, and also blend with the surroundings visually.
