we got picked up from Taj Malabar - the transfer was amazing - speed boat through the back waters. Something we won't forget. When we arrived our 'butler' was there to greet us with a cocktail. Our lodge was great - very large bedroom. clean and well presented. The bathroom was quite poor - there was just a shower which... More

We booked this residence with 6 months notice. We paid the cost up front by credit card. A month later, the owner contacted us to cancel the booking, leaving us scrabbling for a different hotel over New Year (not easy, even with a few months notice). After a delay, the money was refunded, but because of the Rupee's decline, we... More

Our pickup from Cherai Beach was on time and formal. Mr. Rajesh picked up us on Land Rover and offered some softdrinks on board. Then we have been transferred to Boat Jetty for Sea Ray Speed Boat ride to the resort. Wah ! The ride was joyful and memorable. we have been greeted at island and offered tender cocunuts. Then,...

We went to Kochi in Dec 2012 and were very pleased to stay at magnificent Vaamika. The resort arranges a private car for pickup and after about 45 minutes you hop into speed boat. Within few minutes you are at the island resort. It is like soooo.. peaceful and nice. Antique Villa Mansion(s) (over 200 years old) equipped with spacious... More

Initially we were booked in one of the Lake House but when we arrived, we were told we have been upgraded to Sunrise (which was a bonus considering there was major construction going on nearby the Lake House). We stayed in the Stone House and it was spacious, and has a lovely pool and gorgeous scenery of the lake. I... More

I recently spent a long weekend at the resort and I can't praise it enough. Everything was perfect: from collection at Kochi Airport to the quality of the food or the courteous service from the pleasant staff, but most of all just the complete isolated tranquility of the place. I particulrly like the way that you eat(or drink) what you... More

From the moment u arrive at the airport until the time u depart, the hospitality amazes you. The island is magical, the house that u stay in has a charm of its own, and the infinity pool looking out towards the backwaters makes u feel like one with nature. It's clear that a lot of planning and care has gone... More

We stayed for three nights at Vammika and had the most incredible time. All the staff were all kind and attentive ensuring we had everything we needed from the very moment we were met at the train station. There was a lot of building work going on, but we could not see or hear any of it and spent hours... More

Upon arrival I was very concerned as I thought we were arriving at a construction site. There was indeed construction but our villa was away from it and we weren't disturbed at all. We were fortunate enough to be the only couple there so had full attention to our needs. Watched the floating hyacinth and fisherfolk from our deck which... More

Stayed at Vaamika for 6 nights over New Year with family. We stayed in the Sunrise Villa and Stone House, which are next to each other next to a private infinity pool, overlooking the backwaters. Vaamika really exceeded our expectations. We had such a wonderful, relaxing time there. It’s a beautiful place, lots of privacy, you hardly see the other... More
