Babu Varghese (Tour India)
6 Feb 2008
We are tour operators and tourism product developers functioning at Trivandrum for the last 35 years. We are the people who introduced the concept of the Kettuvallom house boats into the backwaters of Kerala way back in 1991 after 9 years of research. The house boats of Kerala has become a mascot of the Kerala tourism in no time due to our marketing strategy. Now there are more than 400 boats in the backwaters of Kerala, directly providing jobs for more than 2000 people and indirectly about 3000 people jobs in repairing and supporting the enterprise.
We are also the creators of the now famous tree houses on tall trees for serious nature lovers at The Green Magic Nature resort in Vaithiry in 1996. Our contract will be over in the resort in 2008.
Thus we have now started Green Magic Nature Resort 2 in our own property of 35 acres of rain forest area 30km away from the previous one. The resort has two tree houses built on tall trees, one accessible with a rope way and another one with a lift working on a water bag as a counter weight. We have also 4 ecolodges on the ground with all basic facilities for comfortable stay. In addition we have created a house on a natural cave with all amenities for living with a fantastic view.
We have a restaurant to cater to the varied requirements of our visitors with a kitchen preparing Kerala culinary wonders prepared from our organic farm.
The energy used is renewable energy from the sun, bio gas from the biodegradable waste and hydro electrical power we generate from our own water source.
