Hotel Aquaseren Kollam
Hotel Aquaserene Kollam, as its name says, is a serene spot surrounded by backwater. This unique environment, combined with the traditional ethnic architecture and warm gracious service on offer, make the stay at this 3-star property with 28 villas an unforgettable experience.
Each Villa is an architectural masterpiece in which the time-proven principles of the 'thachusastra' aesthetically blend with the comforts of modern amenities in an eco-friendly atmosphere and heritage ambience. The wood works were acquired from dismantled ancient aristocratic mansions of Kerala over a period of 6 years.
Cruising along the waterways in houseboats or country boats in a leisurely pace is the most popular pastime of the visitors.
While moving on the backwaters, the village life unfolds before you, as would happen when you go by road. You can see rope weaving, toddy tapping, fishing, farming and animal husbandry activities and children playing in the water and along the banks. So you can closely understand the places and people even without close contact.
You can see the rising and setting of the sun over the serene expanses of water, with the wavelets glittering in the rosy glow and moving along the moonlit waters at night.
Besides water cruises and watching the activities of the fishermen, you can go fishing yourself in the backwaters. You can also get out of water for village tours in the proximity, enjoy an elephant ride, engage in water sports, drink in the sun on the nearby beach where the public are kept out, go on short trips to the nearby places of interest, visit a coir making unit and learn the process.
With an exhilarating view of the serene backwaters on three sides, the air-conditioned multi-cuisine restaurant, Aquafontana, is itself a feast to the senses.
From a traditional Kerala Sadya (ceremonial dinner) served on a banana leaf to Thai and Country American gastro-delights prepared by a qualified executive chef, every morsel tickles your taste-buds.
Splendid preparations of Kerala, Indian, Continental, Chinese and Mediterranean delicacies, served with a warm and gracious hospitality of unique skill, will mesmerize you.
Organic vegetables grown in the premises are carefully selected for the vegetarian dishes. The Restaurant also offers high chairs, nanny service and kids' menu on request. Prior reservation is advised for candle-light dinners and for dinners on Saturdays and Sundays.
There will be at least one International Cuisine Promotion each month. A romantic candle-light dinner can be arranged on request outside the restaurant also - by the pool side or the privacy of your own villa.
A theatre-style conference hall with a comfortable seating capacity of 115 people, equipped with all the latest high-tech audio and video facilities, embodies the 'business-with-pleasure' principle of the Hotel Aquaserene Kollam.
Corporate meetings, seminars, celebrations and other events can be turned into delightful memories. It can be easily transformed into a glittering banquet hall, venue for a dance party, place to play musical chairs or any such activity of gorgeous celebration or togetherness.
