Ages old Kovilakam (Prince's Palace) and a Naalukettu (traditional Kerala home) on the banks of the Vembanad Lake at Vasundhara Sarovar Premiere, Vayalar, will take you back to an era where affluence was evident from peoples' lifestyle. Wooden gables above and Attangudi floor tiles below speak of the acumen of the craftsmen from a century ago. Your own private sit-out and garden give you a ringside view of the lucid waters dotted with Chinese fishing nets. A sunken courtyard lets you read quietly in the Natakashala, once a theatre for art. Archaic interiors are juxtaposed against uber-modern facilities for an experience like none other.
