Club Mahindra Kumarakom is located in the beautiful banks, just 15 km from Kottayam and 85 km from Kochi airport.

They are spacious and well-appointed. For the benefit of guests, the resort has a swimming pool, facilities for indoor and outdoor activities, golf course, health club and gym.
As much as the scenic beauty will mesmerise you in Kumarakom, the food will also be a highlight of your holiday here. The simple, yet distinct Kerala cuisine might be more about rice and seafood, but the vegetables, fiery spices and coconut makes the vegetarian’s heart sing with joy too. The interesting combination of Hindu, Syrian Christian and Muslim traditions and influences gives the cuisine a nice, holistic touch.
Whether it’s the dishes made from freshly caught fish and prawns, especially karimeen (pearlspot) fried or used in a curry or the delicious vegetarian gems, it’s food paradise! Accompaniments are either fragrant, fluffy rice, appam (delicately made hoppers or a kind of dosa), idiyappam (string hoppers or steamed rice noodles) and parotta (a layered and fluffy paratha). The significant Syrian Christian population’s influence is found in dishes like stew, meen moilee (fish in spicy yellow gravy), duck roast, beef fry and crab roast. Popular vegetarian dishes are sambhar, aviyal, rasam, errasseri, pachadi and more. All made with locally grown vegetables.
