We were practically the only guests at this beautiful old wood resort that can be reached only by boat. The staff was wonderful as was my second massage. The first was disturbed by noise from the workers so I suggest you get a massage not in the center where the consultations are held. Especially pleasant is shibin Vincent at reception... More

I came to Kerala for I was intrigued by the Ayurveda specialist who gave me treatments in Chennai. I was warmly welcomed and the Island looked like a paradise. The room I was given was not the one I was booked on, the Maharaja suite. I went to the reception and was told the hotel is full. As it truly... More

The location of this property is just brilliant. It has no road access so the only way to get to the hotel is to go by boat, which the hotel sends to fetch you. Its very well maintained and my stay here was extremely peaceful. This is not a place for you if you like noise and crowds a lot... More

This hotel is reached by a short boat trip. We loved the way our rooms led on to a communal loggia. We sat there in the evening chatting. The ayvada was one of the best experienced during our trip. Very professional and very traditional. The doctor was particularly sympathetic and helpful We liked the way we were asked what we... More

The island location and buildings are simply awesome. The tower at the corner of the resort has excellent view of the backwaters. We had booked 4 rooms. Only one room was good, which was on the 1st floor. Although the buildings are quite a sight from outside, in the inside they are very poorly maintained and not well kept. At-times... More

Stayed there for a day with a group of friends. Hotel looked beautiful …only property on an island. Absolutely calm and quiet place. But the service was big spoiler for the amount spent. Pros: Great location; Hotel architecture; Calm & Serene place Cons: Differential treatment to foreign guests. They don't care much if you are natives even though u pay... More

This hotel has a fantastic location, based on a mini island with boat access only. I was taken in awe the moment the boat neared the dock taking us straight to the reception desk for check in. I loved the whole concept of the historical architecture, which takes you back in time. That along with the water front all around... More

This hotel covers a whole picturesque island! You are transported to the property in their private boat. The cottages and rooms befit historic Kerala mansions. The spread for the buffet breakfast at the restaurant, though limited was well prepared.
