This was my 3rd trip to Kerala with family. I have experienced the best of Kerala be it houseboat at Allepey or lakefront resorts at Kumarakom. But I would say this has been one of the best in terms of quality and experience. There is no question about the quality of rooms and the outstanding view from almost anywhere. True... More

Located next to a back water, and a private beach the Vivanta Bekal is a nice, relaxing, Luxurious & romantic experience. Been there for my anniversary. The hotel's layout is a kind of a "village" with lovely paths (edged with loads of flowers and two "waterfalls") Each room is opened to a vintage stone carved Ganesha and a lovely stone... More

The highlight for me personally was the friendliness and hospitality of the staff. Was my first trip and still most of them knew my name. Was extremely helpful. Special thanks to Samir, the... More
