OMG - we were really happy that we arrived at this island paradise before the tourist season, because we were practically the only people there (maybe 2-3 other rooms were occupied).

We were staying during the monsoon, so the weather was up and down. We watched a tropical storm approach from a little hut in the gardens that was really fun. The setting... More

Visited Soma Kerala Palace last week for a one day stay. We were three families with kids. As pointed out earlier the location is simply stunning. Once you reach there, the peace and beauty is awesome. But its a small island and it can get crowded, as it happened with us. A large group of about 15 families arrived that... More

I loved the Resort and especially the great amenities they have. Good large lawns with beautiful trees of coconut, the garden with hundreds of plants and a wonderful view of lake.
