Three of us had visited this place to spend just one evening. We reached at around 5 pm. It's a beautiful, quaint house, with a lovely garden all around dotted with blooming orchids. Martin had arranged everything for our short visit. Selvan, the pleasant caretaker, received us and promptly took us to the boat. Mathew, our softspoken boatman, efficiently weaved his way through the Chinese fishing nets and clumps of mangroves. His conversation was peppered with interesting tidbits that gave us a glimpse of life in Kumbalangi. We were back ashore in time to enjoy the sunset sitting in the backyard of the house, sipping hot tea and munching banana fritters prepared by Selvan. It was an evening well spent, away from the noises and bustle of the city!

Our trip to Kumbalanghi Village was the most memorable one. Martin made sure that everything was to perfection. We had our boatman, Matthew, take us on an hour long boat trip, explaining the activities and the ways of nature around us. As the boat moved quietly through the waters, we were able to see the variety of birds as they came to feed or just perch on the trees singing their song. This serene and the idyllic surrounding envelops you completely and transports you to perfect tranquility. Later, as we alighted from the boat, we had Selvan patiently waiting for us. He led us back to the resort and we were served hot tea and snacks as we watched the sun setting, draping the sky in a pink hue as it plunged into the waters. This is truly a time that will be etched in my memory forever.

Set off in a canoe sitting on the ubiquitous white plastic chair & given a lifebelt to wear! But we slowly travelled across to Kumbalangi where we were shown traditional skills & crafts such as harvesting coconuts & using the coir to make jewellery, ropes etc. Also fishing with hand thrown nets, pottery making & cigarette / tobacco rolling!,
Then a waterside lunch before returning by to the hotel.

We had the pleasure to walk in the village with a great Tour guide William. We observed how things are being done in the present as years ago:
They fish with an open net that has bamboo at the end , they throw it openly into the water and pull it slowly up, and few fish are count in it.
We saw how coconut being used from drinking, eating and made into a strong rope. William walked with us slowly and explained in details to feed our interest.
William talk respectfully about his boss Martin, who owns the place and live in it. Martin cares to keep it clean and constant developing . He brings different vegetation into-this village. The orchid lovers will really enjoy the collection and the care he provides to the garden. We ended with a great lunch in an open tent facing the water and the village.

The entire tour was a great experience: educational, history, garden, vegetation , and ending with great lunch.
Highly recommend.

We took 6 people on this village tour, it was truthly educational and enlightening, we love the freindly atmosphere and people were pleasent.

We thoroughly enjoyed the boat ride, and the food was excellent.

We are grateful for the time me spent there and will be back in the future.

Highly recommend this tour, and ask for William, he's the man!

We spent a lovely couple of hours seeing what could be done with coconuts and having a relaxing boat ride. Unfortunately there were no crabs and no toddy... otherwise we'd give 5 stars

Tour laid on by our operator - India by Car and Driver - expected some awful touristy thing, but was actually a short boat ride (private) followed by a charming introduction to some of the local crafts, illustrating how every piece of the coconut is used for various purposes, - fish and crab farms, followed by delicious lunch by the river. About half an hour by car from Fort Kochi.

Really great day out visiting kallanchery Island in Cochin

Started with being taken by canoe to the island and then seeing how they fish, name pottery and see everything you can do with a coconut from picking to using every bit of it amazing what you can use the tree fo.

This was followed by a lovely lunch followed by a journey back to "civilisation" by Tuk tuk a day out I could recommend to anybody!
