Enjoy the Language of Kerala

Malayalam, the language of Kerala, is probably unlike any language you’ve ever heard. You won’t need to know a word of it for this trip, but it’s fun to learn a little. And the staff at the resort always appreciate it when you make the effort to learn a few words of their native language.

Common phrases in Malayalam (written phonetically):
