Hi ! Illikkalam is a homestay , so options are limited as regards sports facilities. But they have a badminton court and tennis courts. They can also very easily arrange for the boat rides and rates are reasonable. Opt for the lakeside cottages, beautiful view of the lake. From Kochi airport it is about 2 hours drive, it can be less than that, all depends on the traffic situation. Kochi is approximately 4 hours away from Munnar. From Munnar you can reach Kumarakom via Kochi or via Thekkady (mountainous route,very beautiful) Nearest airport from kumarakom is Kochi.
