One of India's most beautiful places is Kerala, aptly known as God's own country. The tranquil coconut-fringed backwater is a traveler's delight and a perfect honeymoon retreat. The ideal way to experience the nature's beauty in Kerala is by hiring a houseboat. The traditional houseboat meanders along the narrow channels of the backwater where occasionally travelers can get a glimpse of the rural life of Kerala. The houseboats have well-furnished living room, bathroom, kitchen, and a deck with personal chef and crew members. Travelers can enjoy a candle-light authentic Keralian dinner prepared fresh by the boat chef. Romance abounds when couples sleep under the stars in the boat.

Approximate cost to hire a houseboat in Kerala comes around USD 150 along with breakfast, meals, tea, and a welcome drink.

2. Resorts In Goa

Goa is famous for its virgin beaches and luxury resorts, something that any honeymoon couples look forward to as their honeymoon destination. From tranquility to trance parties and casinos, Goa beaches have everything to offer. The beach resorts in Goa are a hallmark of luxury, ideal to spend some relaxed time. Some offer health spas, gyms, and all modern amenities to rejuvenate and unwind. Park Hyatt Goa Resort and Spa located on the Arossim Beach in South Goa is one of the finest resorts in Goa.

3. Palaces In Rajashthan

Rajasthan is the desert state of India famous for its precious stones and exquisite palaces of the Nawabs (kings) that seem to have come up live straight from the Arabian Nights fables. Some of these palaces are now converted to ethnic resorts, ideal for honeymoon couples. One of the most famous palace hotels in Rajasthan is the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. This historic palace is now managed by Taj Group of Hotels and is well known among tourists for its hospitality and services. The rooms are decorated lavishly with a touch of royal elegance. Living like a royal in this palace hotel will give travelers a memory to cherish for lifetime.

4.Tree House In Kerala

Couples seeking out for some adventures can check out the tree houses in the jungles of Wayanad, in North Kerala. These cozy tree houses are built 86 feet above ground level on trees in the Wayanad Sanctuary. The eco-friendly tree houses use electricity from solar energy and cow dung (Gober Gas). Each of the tree houses has modern, furnished bedrooms and bathrooms with a separate dining area. Fresh organic vegetables and fruits are served in the meals. Visitors may take hiking or trekking through various hiking trails to enjoy the peaceful nature more closely hearing the chirps of birds and witnessing a rich collection of flora and fauna.

One night tree house package for two will cost around USD 200.

5. Houseboats In Kashmir

Kashmir located in the northern most part of India, in the lap of the Himalayas is paradise on earth. The serene beauty of the place dotted by Chinar trees, the Dal Lake, and wonderful Kashmiri people has been a choice of honeymoon couples since a long time. There are plenty luxury and budget hotels in Srinagar, Gulmarg, Pahalgam, and other popular places in Kashmir, but the main attraction is the houseboats in the Dal Lake.

The houseboats come with modern furniture, plus a living room, and a kitchen. Travelers can choose from Deluxe, Luxury, and Standard Houseboats according to their budget.

This is good. But, wonder why there is no coverage of North Eastern states? I've always heard good things about these states.Also, houseboats are now available even in Karwar, Udupi and such place, which are not related to Kerala.

Hiring Houseboat in Alappuzha backwater for an overnight or few days will be an awesome and lifetime experience. According to me, it is a perfect honeymoon retreat.
