Akkara House, near Kottayam town, Kerala, is a large, secluded and comfortable property set on the river-bend of the Meenachil River. It has quaint rooms, with terracotta floors, period furniture, and a large open courtyard with steps leading to the river. Each guest is personally attended by your host Mrs. Shanta Kurian.
Akkara is an ideal place to spend some quite moments, savour some traditional Syrian Christian cuisine, explore the myriad rivulets, backwaters and lakes in ‘Kettuvallams’- house boats or just simply laze. Akkara House is also an ideal location to stay in if you want to undergo Ayurvedic therapy at a close by facility.
We invite you to an experience that packs the true essence of rustic Kerala with the traditional flavours of the Travancore Syrian Christian hospitality.
