Children often construe things, just as much as they misconstrue them to fit them in with the emotional drift that they keep toying with in their heads. A frivolous thing, but in no way juvenile. Some of the best child-friendly getaways in India, promise to bring this spirit out in them and then some. In the listing that follows, you will find a read on a few places in the country where you can carry your bundles of joy to, for a vacation or just a get away, so that the both of you truly end up having a great time together.

Philipkutty’s Farm

Set in a secluded area, overlooking the pristine backwaters of Kerala, at Kottayam, the place is a stunner by day, as much as it is by night. Not just that, the place is run by a family, Anu, Aniamma, Philip and Vinod, who personally take care of the guests and host them, with a thorough respect for their space and privacy. This non-intrusive but extremely hospitable abode, makes for a safe paradise to holiday in with a child or two.

The place is designed on the lines of a waterfront villa, with your own personal view of the backwaters by sunset, as much as by sunrise, as you admire the beauty of the flowing waters through day and night. Organic farm lands cultivate banana, nutmeg, cocoa, pepper, coconut and toddy, among other plants.

Kumarakom Lake Resort

Acclaimed to be the finest luxury heritage resort in the country, this is among one of the many fine places to stay in Kerala. The resort sprawling over 25 acres, is an enclosed world in itself and one can get lost anywhere in the lush greens right here. Taking your kids along, in this losing-yourself-to-find-yourself-all-over-again experience can be quite overwhelming, as you explore some fantastic aspects of Kerala.

The tea, the scenic vistas, the plethora of coconut indulgences laid out on picnic mats in any one of the several pockets of the resort or in your own villa, can be an overwhelming experience for you, together with your family making it one of the best child-friendly getaways in India. It is replete with luxury villas and suites of varying kinds, swimming pools aplenty and Ayurvedic treatments which are atypical of the style of Kerala.

Japalouppe Equestrian Centre

Par inspiring, is the name that inspires what this institution stands for today. ‘Jappeloup’ was a French horse, who was dismissed in the field of show jumping, owing to his short height. The horse wasn't thought of as capable enough to jump heights, leave alone performing or winning a challenge. But his partner in crime and rider Pierre Durand, overcame widespread perception, simply by working on their skills and upping their game. Eventually, determination and faith got the better of them and fast tracked them to the next level.

They are geared up for the activity as a sport, so you know they are constantly on their heels, in a disciplined manner and in good hands.
