Good ambiance with outlook to gardens and swimming pool. Overpriced beer and food with typical "casual" (and the use of that particular word is very generous!) government employee service--either freshers who don't know what they're doing and take forever doing what they do know, or older ones who don't care. Too bad.

One should visit the hotel before selecting any other hotel in Cochin ! Because the scenic beauty this hotel enjoys is not artificial ! Being in the Middle of the Island near to city is like heaven ! I would really suggest to go to every corner of the hotel and then Select the room (once you made up your... More

We walked with expectations of good service and property, but to our astonishment had issue with Air-conditioning not working, hot water supply. The response from maintenance and reception was very poor. The property is really good. Kids enjoyed the stay as we had good time at swimming pool and boat ride.

The hotel is housed in a sprawling property and the location is excellent.But in "God's Own Country", devils seem to have been at work to steal this magnificent property of its charm and elegance.The property is not well maintained and the water front adjacent to the cottages was very unclean. Room service and support staff were scarce. However, to my... More

I had a good stay at this place, it is just behind the backwaters and palatial. You need to choose the hotel room wisely though, we had booked a cottage by the water which to my surprise really didn't look as exciting as it sounded. So, we decided to change the rooms to normal deluxe rooms. The mornings are nice... More

Beautiful location but what a nightmare of a place. I suspect this is run and owned by the state as the gorgeous location and very historic buildings are put to very poor use. I requested a cottage by the water and it turned out to be dirty unkept and had mold. The view is terrible ....some oil refineries but this... More

Kerala doesn't have many heavy duty resources of commercial significance outside its well-educated population so it comes as no surprise that tourism should be an attractive card to play in this part of India where human impact would still seem to be 'manageable'. Kerala Tourism knows the would-be perils of leaving heritage and patrimony in the hands of the private... More
