|Kamyakam Haven - The Complete
Luxury Backwater Resort:
|Perched on the palm-fringed Kothad Island
in the backwaters of Cochin, Kamyakam Haven is an ideal solace
for all. With a total area of 4 acres en-route the Ernakulam-Alwaye-Nedumbassery
International Airport national water highway, this beautiful
3 star backwater resort is equipped with world-class facilities.
The enchanting view of the backwaters, caressing breeze, clear
sky and scenic beauty - all makes it an ideal place for picnickers
and honeymooners. Kothad is one among the fourteen islands in
the Periyar river basin in Vembanad Lake. According to history,
these islands were formed as a result of a great flood in the
1340s. Known as Pearl Islands (the pearls on the necklace of
the Queen of Arabian Sea - Kochi), these small yet beautiful
islands are a real treat to one's eyes. Kamyakam Haven is on
the southern side of the island on-looking the water highway.
Even the route to Kamyakam Haven by boat gives the visitor an
unforgettable experience - with the rural life on one side and
the urban on the other. One can see the sharply outlined silhouette
of the main building from the boat itself. The Resort is also
easily accessible by road from the mainland.
The main occupation of the local inhabitants are agriculture
and fishing. Of the total area of the islands, only 16% is land
and the rest, are paddy fields and streams. During rainy season,
the fields are used for paddy cultivation and in summer, after
the harvest, saline water is filled in and traditional prawn
farming is done. The fields used for prawn farming are called
Chemmeen Kettu. Other traditional activities of the area are
coir processing, clay utensil( the renowned handmade Moolampally
