Soma Kerala Palace
What makes Soma Kerala Palace different from other holiday resorts is its ancient architecture which is recreated using master pieces, about 250 years old, disbanded from their actual site. Classical art forms such as Koodiyattom, Thulall and Padayani, performed by veterans of the art, form a part of the Kalaa Sandhya (Cultural Evening) which was once a means of entertainment for the royalty.

The backdrop of the lilting backwaters and the swaying palms makes the setting picture perfect. It is one place where you will find all your worries ebbing away and your spirits elevating. So take a break from the monotony of daily life to experience Kerala the way it is.

We look forward to having you with us.
 
Facilities Provided By soma kerala palace

We at Soma Kerala Palace have a host of facilities to make your stay with us pleasant. We take care of every need of yours letting you enjoy your holiday to the maximum. Stretch out on a hammock with a nice book; take a stroll in the gardens of the resort or simply laze around; we see to everything else.

Restaurant : That the cuisine of Kerala is all about spices, coconuts and sea foods, is a misconception. There is a lot more to it apart from the flavours lent by the spices and coconuts. The difference in the way it is prepared and served is what makes the food of Kerala, a gourmet’s delight.

At Soma Kerala Palace, we bring alive some old forgotten recipes of Kerala that were known for their delicious flavours and nutritive value. One fine example being Panankanji, a dish prepared with the processed trunk of palm trees. The restaurant also serves multi cuisine, sea food favourites and Ayurveda Vegetarian. The Ayurveda menu includes a variety of salads, juices, sprouts and greens.

The sea food fare is an exciting one with Kerala specialties like Karimeen Pollichathu- a tangy dish made by frying marinated Pearl Spot fish covered in banana leaves, Njandu Curry (Crab Curry), Prawn Masala, Kappa and Meen Curry (cooked tapioca and fish curry), Kerala Fish Curry and the likes. Our chefs prepare for you fresh catches from the lake, according to your tastes.  You can even watch your meal being cooked while the chef is at it. 

The food made in earthen pots and large brass vessels, gives the food a special essence which gets better when served on plantain leaves. The ambience of our elegant restaurant further adds to your dining experience. 

Accommodation :

Sreedhari 
Sreedhari was an Ayurveda Shala (Hospital) built in 1890, functioning in Pala, Kottayam. The structure was carefully disbanded and became a part of Soma Kerala Palace in the year 2003. Today, Sreedhari has palatial rooms that are evocative of the Tharavadus of ancient Kerala.
Kozhanal Maalika 
Kozhanal Maalika (Palace) belonged to the Kozhanal Family who were Kshatriyas (The Royal Warriors). The palace which was originally built at Idakkoli Village, 40 kms from Vaikkom, became a part of Soma Kerala Palace in 2002. Now, Kozhanal Maalika has some of the most sought-after rooms of the resort.
Chempulayil
A building by the banks of the Meenachil River near Pala, Chempulayil was built in 1890. The ground floor was used as a shop where tobacco and other natural products were stored and sold, while the first floor housed various offices. This structure which became a part of our resort in 2004, is absolutely impressive. 
Neythallor Mathom
An ancient Tharavadu (The residence of upper caste Malayalees), Neythallor Mathom was built according to the Ettukettu architecture. The specialty of this architecture is that it has two courtyards inside the dwelling which ensure thorough air passage. Originally constructed in the Kanyakumari district of erstwhile Travancore, in the 18th century, the Mathom was reconstructed at Soma Kerala Palace in the year 2004.
Nalekkatt
Built in the early 1800’s, Nalekkatt House was owned by Suryanarayana Pillai, who assisted the Travancore King in the administration of the state. The mansion which was situated in a dense forest near Vallichira, was re-built at Soma Kerala Palace in 2003.
Kayyalakkakam
Kayyalakkam, a manor done completely in wood was built around 250 years ago. It originally belonged to the Poothet Family but was later on sold to the Kayyalakkakam Family. The mansion which became a part of Soma Kerala Palace in 2004, is a luxurious affair with intricately carved wooden floor, walls and roof.
Vattakkunnel
Situated in the Pala marketplace, Vattakkunnel was constructed in 1875. It was here that the farmers brought their produce of chukku (dried ginger) and elakkaya (cardamom) to be bartered for salt and tobacco. The structure was built at Soma Kerala Palace as it was, in the year 2004.
Mannur
A farmer’s house originally built in Bharananganam, Mannur was located 55 kms away from Soma Kerala Palace. The house was built in 1850 and belonged to a rich family called Kallunthalakkal, who were basically farmers. The Tharavaadu built by Kallunthalakkal Chacko housed three generations. It was reconstructed to be a part of Kerala Palace in 2004.
V.T’s House
The V.T’s House was originally built at Pala town in 1890. The house was constructed by V.T.Thomas, an entrepreneur who built it to store and sell natural goods that were brought from the forest. The structure was reconstructed at Soma Kerala palace just as it was, in 2003.
