Landed up here with a sudden plan. Was pleasantly surprised. Very nice and calm place within the city but on an island. So its quite serene. The rooms etc are fabulous. Nice pool, restaurant and view. Only downside was the morning breakfast. Quite average.

Good location, excellent food and very silent place. Rooms are very big and clean. Staying at Naalukettu during rainy season is a fantastic experience. Good Ayurvedic massage and pool. Good service and smiling staff too.

The hotel is pretty good, its a heritage hotel. I like the ambiance but not sure everyone would enjoy it. The Swimming Pool is very poor, restaurant had the evening buffet dinner, it was kind of average. The staffs were very polite and hostile. I reckon it is quite expensive for what it has to offer.other than a heritage property... More

From the very begining we received a very bad treatment: - They didn't move a finger for us. I had never seen a receptionist like that. They were sitting on their chair all the time. - They didn't show us the facilities. whilst every single indian person that arrived there, they showed everything on a very detailed way. - We... More

Very disappointing, I had a day trip here some years ago and thought it would be nice to stay overnight, wrong, hotel is shabby and very run down. It needs some serious maintenance, the rooms are dilapidated and we were in a suite which was huge!

I ve stayed in this resort owned by Kerala Tourism development corporation. The location is excellent . It is very close to Cochin City. The service is very average and the property is not well maintained. The garden and lawns have not been maintained properly. But if you are looking for a quiet stay at a wonderful place at a... More

Recently we stayed on this property on a family vacation. We were initially skeptical about this being a govt property service and maintenance may not be upto the mark. But to our pleasant surprise we were wrong. We got a very good service as well as nicely maintained property. The prices were also very cheap compared to other similar properties... More

Location of the resort(?)is pretty nice... It is not easy find some where so calm and scenic in the middle of a metro city... But the rooms need hell of a lot of maintenance and renovation(Which, I don't think is going to happen in foreseeable future as it is a government run property)... Dinner is just ok... And break fast... More

I went her for 2 weeks whilst waiting for a friend to arrive. It's government run ,which should tell you something about the place. The pool was ok,but,I always had to find someone to ask for a towel. Rooms are very average,hot water hit and miss. It was quite amusing to see eight waiters at breakfast standing around doing nothing,it... More
