Culture Package - Arts of Kerala


What makes India tick as a single entity? Culture would be our unequivocal answer. Kerala to Kashmir, Mumbai to Madhepur (and beyond) nothing remains same. Languages, attires, customs and cuisine all undergo sea changes. What connects us then? A shared cultural tradition. To explore the breadth of Indian Art in a tour package would be presumptuous. We might be naive, but we are not megalomaniacs. Across five days we will explore a limited classical culture tradition of Kerala. A new art form and new set of experience each day. And in the process, we hope to open a window in your mind to the much larger landscape that is Indian culture.

Being in hospitality, we did not consider ourselves to have sufficient expertise in Ayurveda. So we got specialists to provide Ayurveda experiences

Splendor of Kerala - Temple festivals


Who were the people that celebrated a festival in this village nearly 1500 years ago? What colours and contours would the festival have had then? God knows. He should, for it is a temple festival. One of the oldest extant temple festivals, which Kerala Tourism considers ‘the mother of all festivals’ is right in our backyard. The Peruvanam - Arattupuzha pooram is much more than a temple festival. It is an annual window that opens to an era gone by. A time when villages and

Weekend and day packages


How long do you need to open your mind - a second? an aeon? A weekend would be nice perhaps. While we would love you to stay with us longer, we would be happy to curate a day or two of engaging experiences if that is all you could spare for us. Close to Our Arts is biased towards performing arts and culture, just as we are. Essential Kerala is more eclectic, with a bt of village, Ayurveda and nature thrown in. Looking for something else? Do let us know and we might have a worthwhile plan.
