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

We booked the hotel for 4 nights but left after 1. It's poorly maintained, but shame that it's located just by the water and the views are amazing but not worth it considering the other poor aspects of the hotel. The bedsheets were stained, the food was nothing special, the wifi only worked in main lobby. For the same price... More

We stayed here at the end of our Kerala trip. The hotel looked impressive when driving in. The premises are still quite pretty and nice. The rooms were ok however there was higher expectation from previous reviews and photos. The food was the most disappointing part. We had much better local fare at the small local joints then in the... More

It's a good property but worst managed by the KTDC ppl and the menu in the restaurant was very very limited and worst in taste. The only plus of the resort is it's location and floating rooms and superb pool but over chlorinated . The breaksfast was good.

The palace dates back to 1744 and though you may not actually stay in it, a walk through its wood panelled corridors and spiral wooden staircase is enough to tranport you to the days of the scheming Dutchmen and colluding kings. The palace has been restored beautifully. The resort is a great place to unwind if you donot miss the... More
