Backwaters to have Serene Presence of Uday Samudra


Kochi: Uday Samudra Leisure Beach Hotel & Spa (UDS) of Kovalam, touted as the complete wellness resort is all set to make its presence at the famed backwaters of Alappuzha.

Christened ‘Serenity Alappuzha’, the property which is likely to be commissioned by August 2017, is set to become a destination in itself. 3D sketches of the property posted by UDS on Facebook have already received rave reviews from tourists. Overlooking the backwaters of Alappuzha, Serenity would be a great spot to relax and spend hours lost in thoughts, and witness the wonderful sight of the setting sun at the horizon, vouches Raja Gopaal Iyer, CEO, UDS.

“At the coastal end of the resort, the infinity pool will appear to the visitor as if it is stretching out into and merging with the Vembanad lake. You can also say ‘hi’ to all those who cross the lake in front of our resort on houseboats. Great ambience will render this resort different from others. This property will also have exclusive pool villas which will make this a very special place to unwind. Ayurveda and yoga, spa, restaurants, barbeque, banquet halls, and houseboat and country boat trips will ensure your vacation is truly exciting and enjoyable,” says Iyer, who has been in the hospitality industry for more than three decades.

As part of its expansion, UDS will also launch a Hotel and Convention Centre at Kowdiar in Thiruvananthapuram in April 2018. Situated next to the Golf Club, the property will have 75 rooms, a large banqueting area of 2500 pax, ample car parking facility, executive lounge, bar, specialty Indian restaurant, a 24-hour coffee shop, business centre, spa with health club and a library bar lounge. UDS is also coming up with a Hill Resort at Vagamon.
