We were here as a group, it was mostly a get together - an occasion for the gang to get together when everyone happened to be back in Kerala at the same time. The group consisted of 5 single guys, and 2 families with kids who joined us for one out of the 2 nights. The good: Location, location, location...!... 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 just came back from a 3-day stay at this resort. True to its advertising, you can expect a real warm welcome, and heritage-styled rooms that are cozy and just perfect! The view from the resort is breathtaking. The rooms are clean and the restroom was neat - with every house keeping visit. The food at the restaurant was really... 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. The swimming pool was excellent and maintained. The sitting places to rest and enjoy was great. But I doubt on the room quality and size. The occasional power cut... More

Quite unlike anywhere I have ever been really. Journey starts by parking the car off the main road in a secure area. We then board a boat which took us to through the backwater lake and we arrive at the wonderfully secluded resort. The views are stunning and the making of this place. We had to get moved from original... More

This location is filled with youth, romance and solitude . Your stay on the island is greeted with the warmest welcome and it just gets better from there. Do not make a mistake of spending only a night or 2, minimum 3 nights - but if your itinerary can manage it, spend at least 5 nights. You will not be... More
