The location is on the backwaters of the Vembanad Lake. Large area and well maintained. Services are good and staff friendly and helpful. The rooms are built in traditional Kerala style and actually quite well appointed. The only flip side is if u want to reach it by road one has to drive through very very narrows country lanes to...

Had a great stay at the resort. This is a visual delight above anything. The decor and the overall setup is pretty quaint and peaceful. Restaurant serves good food. Pool's quite good n set beautifully, adjacent to Vembanad. The rooms are comfortable, though a little small. But the hospitable manager makes up for it. Worth a visit.

Quaint, charming resort right in the middle of the Vembanad. The hotel is quite far from Kochi city and it takes a boat ride to get to it. So I would not recommend it if you wish to travel around the city. But it is a great retreat if you want to get away, relax and rejuvenate. There are lovely... More

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). The gardens are beautiful, the room made of dark wood was comfortable and attractive, the shower was great, and Ayervedic green soap and shampoo smelled divine. While they didn't... More

This hotel was recommended to us by a homestay as a little luxury in between a day trip in the backwaters and a night on a house boat. 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
