help needed to plan a kerala holiday.

Hi, I'm planning a 6 days holiday to kerala with my husband & 3 years old daughter. This is our first time to kerala & i need your valuable suggestions as to what are the right places to visit & which to skip. We are planning to travel end november'14 from hyderabad, considering there is direct flight from hyderabad to cochin i need to start the trip from cochin.pls suggest how to go about from there.

following are some points which need to be considered for the planning:

1. we are looking at relaxed holiday rather than a hectic one.

2. very interested in shopping, beaches

3. want very clean hotels 4-5 star

4. the entire trip has to be kid friendly ( 3years old daughter)

please help me plan this trip. thanks in advance:)
