Friday’s Place, a stunning getaway on the Neyyar backwater at Poovar, Southern Kerala, a forty minute drive south from Trivandrum International Airport. A very special place where responsible tourism is not a mere word. Â four eco-friendly, beautifully crafted teak and mahogany cottages set in an acre of palm garden, secluded, private and quiet.
This is a place for you to relax, and at least whilst you are here, forget the pressures of work and a frenetic lifestyle miles away. Itâ€™s a place to read that book, paint that water colour you always wanted to try your hand at, master that instrument, or just take in a completely different outlook whether scenically or culturally.
With no rips or breakers that can dump you, the river, with sensible supervision, is safe for children too. The jetty is great for diving off, and at sundown provides a peaceful platform for fishing. Our local boatman is on hand to punt you around the maze of backwater canals and his keen local knowledge will identify the varied flora and fauna in surprisingly good English!
