This was our fourth visit to the Lake Villas and we'll be back again! It is 1 ½ hours by taxi from Kochi Airport or ½ hour from the nearest railway station at Piravim Road. We always stay in one of the two villas on the lake side of the property which, although basic are very comfortable with hot showers... More

This was our very first visit to India and were not too sure what to expect. What we found was a little piece of heaven. Wonderful place to relax . Beautiful views, excellent accommodation and mouthwatering food. Our hosts Thomas and Reshni were so pleasant and helpful. We shall certainly return.

Incredible location beside the longest lake in India. The rooms were slightly dark and small but clean and functional. The food was lovely and plentiful. The highlight was a trip on the owners boat around the backwaters.

Stayed as a family in 2 rooms. Collected from our hotel in Fort Cochin by driver from the villas. This worked well as a non local might find it a bit tricky to find. Beautiful gardens with lots to look at. Right on lake, magnificent sunsets. Hosts are warm and friendly. Chalets are not glitzy, but are comfortable and have... More

Spent 2 nights here in January and certainly could have stayed longer, the property is lovely and very peaceful. Bungalow accomodation was spacious and clean with a veranda to sit out on. Backwaters boat (large canoe style) in early morning and early evening are a joy and a great way to while away an hour or so. The Thomas family... More

This place is located at on backwaters with panoramic view. Very good hosts who are always ready to serve and help the guests. Though food they serve is really great, slight improvement on some food items may make it better. But overall its a great place to stay for those who love the backwaters without commercial noise.

The place is beautiful. We completely enjoyed staying in a property bang on the waterfront. Our family spent a lot of time lazing around by the waterfront. The sunset cruise on a motorboat offered by the hosts was a good experience. Our sons enjoyed the pedal boat ride along the canals around the property. The hosts were extremely warm and... More

As soon as you reach Vembanad Lake villas, you are transported to tranquility and beauty. The property is complete with trees, a water canel running through and around the entire property, an amazing lounging spot right next to the lake and birds and ducks. The hosts are very loving and welcoming and we felt like a part of their family.... More
