Family Kerala

Blessed with some of India’s best beaches, Kerala was always going to be a good option for families, but Kerala family holidays are about far more than sun and sand.

Our team of India experts can help you tailor-make a perfect Kerala family holidays designed to your exact family specifications. All Original Travel holidays also come with exclusive additional services as standard. These include fast-track through check-in and security, and access to a lounge, even if you're flying in economy class. In addition, children between the ages of three and ten received a fun pack of games, challenges and destination-specific quizzes to keep the children entertained on the flight to Kerala. When you're actually in India, you have access to our clued-up local Concierge who can make last minute family-friendly restaurant recommendations and tweaks to your itinerary to make a great trip even better.

But what are the attractions beyond the beach on a Kerala family holiday? Well, this southern Indian state has a very distinctive culture of its own, which is markedly different from that in the north of the country, and the children will enjoy absorbing Keralan culture through experiences such as a cooking class with a local family, witnessing a Kathkali dance performance (and buying one of the creepy masks as a souvenir) or spending the night on a converted rice barge as it drifts through the backwaters of Alleppey. Then enjoy another mode of transport on a fun bicycle tour of the Keralan capital Cochin on the coast. For a total change of scene, take the family up into the tea plantation-coated hill country where the temperature is cooler and you can all learn about the tea making process from picking the fresh leaves to preparing a brew. And then of course there are those miles upon miles of beautiful beaches where the children can build sandcastles galore and watch local fishermen hauling their boats ashore.
