Adventurous families planning a holiday to India may wish to consider Kerala, as it offers plenty for people of all ages to discover.

Speaking to Tom Chesshyre of the Daily Mail, Anjum Anand travelled to Kerala with her husband and three-year-old daughter so they could enjoy a family holiday while she explored her interest in the ancient medicine of ayurveda.

The tradition of ayurveda dates back more than 1,000 years and facilities such as the Leela Spa Hotel offer modern-day treatments incorporating the methods.

“Obviously, you’re always more relaxed on holiday, but I began to feel much more so,” said Ms Anand, adding that in addition to being served food according to her body type, she tried breathing exercises, yoga and meditation.

Meanwhile, three-year-old Mahi had plenty to do at the facility’s kids club, which offered entertainment such as a magician and a treasure hunt.

Earlier this month, the BBC reported that the floating supermarket in Kerala is proving to be a popular attraction.

The vessel, known as Triveni, is thought to be the only floating market of its kind in the world – a claim which is currently being validated by the Guinness Book of World Records.
