My partner and I would like to go to southern India for 3 weeks over Christmas/ New Year 2006. Ideally we only want to go to 2 or 3 places and plan to spend a lot of time relaxing and hanging out. Does anybody know of any quiet huts on beaches or in the hills that they would recommend?

Any help would be gratefully received. Thanks.

Budget?

Any other info?

The more info you give, the more suitable the replies will be.

If you have never been to India, I would one of the quieter beaches of Goa, then a resort in Wyanaad and then the backwaters of Kerala.

Thanks

Middle of the range budget, (whatever that means?). We're not quite backpackers and are just looking for somewhere quiet and relaxing (and a bit romantic?)

goombay, By "Budget" Steven meant -- how much are you willing to spend on the trip? We are hoping your response will include a number of some sort.

I guess this means that Rs1500 - 2200 (20 - 30) per night for a hotel room should be OK, and an expensive backwater cruise would also be OK.

I have no idea about the backwater cruise prices, but probably 50 - 70 each for a 24 hour cruise, but for romance, it's a small price to pay.

Kerala Backwaters - A cruise on budgets!

I went for a 24 hour Kerala backwater trip just a few months ago...in Feb...and it was wonderful. I was in a large group so it wasn't exactly romantic but we all commented on how romantic it *could* be...especially on a honeymoon. We stopped at a small village on the way and bought these jumbo prawns ...the biggest I have ever seen. If you like prawns, it makes the amaizng dinner they cook you even better. You'll love the backwater trip...very romantic!
