    Kerala is known as the God’s own country and also as the Spice garden of India. Kerala has the best combination of mountains, rivers, backwaters, lush green paddy fields and pristine beaches. It is also famous for its temples which have a unique style of architecture. They have a sloping roof in the shape of a contour. It is also the land of Ayurveda. So, people from all over India and the world come here to experience the best of nature, Ayurveda and temple architecture and their festivals.

    The hotel sector is therefore an important segment of the tourism industry. To give an impetus to this industry, the government provides tax benefits and other incentives. It is now emerging as a priority industry. Foreign investment and collaboration have been allowed to participate in this industry. Up to 51% foreign equity is allowed. So many states like Kerala and Rajasthan have benefitted from the new economic policy and the tourism and hospitality industries are performing very well.

    The diversity of accommodation ranges from deluxe hotels comparable to world’s most luxurious, to budget ones which are affordable by most modest tourists. The list has now extended to include heritage hotels, beach resort hotels and home stays. The heritage hotels have been introduced to cover functioning hotels in palaces, havelis, castles, forts and residences prior to 1950. These hotels reflect the ambience and lifestyles of the bygone era and are immensely popular with tourists. Heritage hotels are very popular in Kerala. Many of the old palatial buildings have been converted into hotels.

    In the central district of Palakkad hotels are aplenty. Hotels are available from economy, budget hotels to heritage hotels and resorts. Home stays are now becoming popular. Palakkad is the seat of Ayurveda. Many resorts and luxury hotels offer Ayurveda packages for the tourists. They provide rejuvenation programs that attract tourists from all over the world. Therapeutic packages are also available for the tourists. Booking in advance is advisable.
