Munroe Island is a group of eight small islets located in the Kollam district of Kerala. The island is located at the confluence of Ashtamudi lake and the Kallada river that originates from the regions of Western Ghats culminating into the Arabian sea. It has huge mangrove plants and coconut farms along the shores of its lake. Any visit to the Island is incomplete without a canoe ride through the heart of region. Do not miss traversing across its narrow canals and backwaters to the vast lake during sunsets or the sunrise. Secluded from the outside world even today, the Munroe Island stands strong to preserve the culture that the people living in the ancient days in Kerala used to follow. The residents here are exceptionally kind and welcoming by nature.
The Munroe Island is located 22 km from Kollam. You can either hire a car or go on a steamer. You can also travel by a bus or a train. The island has its own railway station called Munroturuttu. Trivandrum airport is 80 kms away from Munroe Island
Located right in the center of the island, the homestay is a blend of traditional architecture and modern facilities. It is surrounded by lush green trees and a garden. It complements the intrinsic wood work and carvings that complete the architecture of the homestay. Having delicious home cooked local food in the open dining area amidst the sounds of breeze hitting the trees and the chirping of birds away from any bustling noises is a relaxing experience in itself. There are 2 spacious rooms both with an attached bathroom.
