KTDC, Suvasam Thanneermukkom is located at Thanneermukkom, Alappuzha. "Suvasam" means a pleasant stay in Sanskrit. Thanneermukkom is the name of the barrier constructed here to prevent tidal action and intrusion of salt water into the Kuttanad lowlands across Vembanad Lake, between Thanneermukkom and Vechur. The water in this part of the lake is the cleanest. KTDC, Suvasam is easily accessible from Kochi and Alappuzha (1 hour) and is located very close to Kumarakom. KTDC, Suvasam overlooking the Vembanad Lake has 37 rooms, each with a garden in front and a view of the lake. A perfect getaway from the stress and hustle of urban life and a window to take glimpse of the calm rural life, KTDC Suvasam brings with freshness and greenery.
