We went there for a one day picnic from office and had a blast there, its almost like an island and you can play various games on the lawn, swim in the pool or just sit in the look out post and sip a glass of whisky. They also have ayurveda there. One thing that was not upto the mark... More

My American friends and I stayed over a day and a night and it was just relaxing. We flew to Kochi from Bengaluru, and were driven straight to the Jetty (boarding place for boat). A boat took us to the property situated on an Island away from all the hustle and bustle. A welcome rose bouquet at the airport and... More

I already read the reviews about this hotel, mostly good, and was therefore very excited to visit the place. It takes around 15 min of a boat ride(which the hotel sends), and that ride in itself is refreshing. Completely secluded from the rush of life, this place is completely calm with very courteous hotel staff. Room service is very prompt.... More

Great hotel with beautiful lawns, great food and truly awesome views. Bit far from the mainland and a hotel boat takes you to the hotel. Boat ride itself is great and very comfortable. Hotel staff makes you feel very comfortable. The only downside was that the swimming pool was not well maintained. It was dirty and people were swimming with... More

We expected to have a great stay. The rooms charges were over Rs. 10,000. It was the Palace room. The room air conditioner and ceiling... More

If you like dark, dingy room, absolutely filthy bathrooms/toilets, very poor quality food, then this is the place to go. My wife and I hated everything about this place. The pictures do not portray a true reflection of the place. We did not take a shower in the hotel and checked out the very next day as the bathroom/toilets were... More
