As the Resort says, gives really the feeling of still, chill, tranquil. We had good stay on 12th & 13th May. Though we decided to stay only one night, but the staff gave us good deal for the second night. Staff was very cooperative in whatever little they could do. Only the food department slightly disappointed us. If they can... More

It was a family trip. We stayed here for a night. The location of the property is very good. Good food served. Staff is co-operative but it lacks in numbers. We had booked two floating cottages for a night, but were shifted to heritage rooms at night due to some drainage problem. The cottages need maintenance. Shifting at the middle... More

We had been to Lotus Aronda in November 2011. The good thing about Resort is its location. We had stayed in the Floating Cottages but visited the Heritage and Deluxe Room. The Floating Cottage has a good view of the Backwaters. The Staff was very cooperative especially for the Room Services. The floating cottages are quiet isolated. The food was... More

Stayed at this "luxory Resort" for two nights with my husband and a friend from Europe. In short: nice property, but kept very bad, with unfriendly, least bothered staff. We stayed in the floating cottages, because regular rooms are not facing the backwaters (very intelligent architecture) and payed 1100 Rs extra per room per night. Backwater was very dirty, bottles... More
