We stayed in the luxury villas - each with a plunge pool - and loved the experience. The food served is exceptional - thanks to Saurabh Varma (who helped with... More

This place offers a perfect 3 day getaway from city life mayhem. It's is beautifully located between the backwaters and the beach. Food was OK. Staff was extremely courteous, also upgraded me to the Pool Plunge Villa. Rooms are spacious and well equipped. The resort offered a lot of activities to keep us occupied.

This is a great place to relax after travelling for a couple of weeks. I am never quite sure what to expect when I reach hotels in India but on this occasion we were all very happy. The room was a great size, and easily accommodated the extra bed for our daughter. The villa pool and courtyard are a good... More
