One Island, one resort; welcome to exclusive and luxurious all pool-villa resort Banyan Tree Kerala which is set on the Kerala’s private island of Nediyathuruthu, and is surrounded by the tranquil backwaters of the quaint Alleppey district and swathed in swaying tropical palm groves. Especially designed to be the perfect place to enjoy the spoils of nature and scenic beauty of Kerala, also called as ‘God’s Own Country’, the resort boasting panoramic views and exquisitely appointed villas is largely inspired by Kerala’s highly stylized Kathakali art, abundant variety of spices and traditional Keralan woodwork. Also, the aesthetic elements ubiquitous in Keralan structures and interiors can be seen throughout the 59-villa resort, which impressively marks the operator’s Indian debut.
