Hill station and long beaches within kilometers of each other. Rolling backwaters and amazing amalgamation of cuisine.
Language could become a barrier if you are not a Malayali, though there are a lot of people who can converse in English or Hindi. The summers can be a pain in some parts of Kerala. While the hills would remain cool, the rest would be sweating through and through.
One would think that Kerala is only for families with their children. Young adults can have a fantastic time in God's own country. If one is all about relaxing and enjoying some fresh sea breeze while getting a holistic Ayurveda spa treatment, this could be the destination. If there is an appetite for adventure, there is plenty room there too.
