The best of best place. You get your privacy, good food, amazing location, clean linens, neat bathrooms, peddle boating, motor boating, what else do you need when you are on a vacation. Special mention to Reshmiji for her food. Her smile, food and the deserts are to die for. Thomasji is always ready if you require anything. Morning walk through... More

Our experience with vembanad lake villas was awesome especially the hospitality and the ambience. We enjoyed each and every second living there. THE PLACE, THE SURROUNDINGS, THE FOOD, THE LAKE, THE CANALS, THE BOATING, THE GARDEN, THE FRUITS, THE ROOM, THE CLEANLINESS, THE TAXI, ETC...ETC... ETC..... ALL ARE BEST PARTS. We whole heartedly thank Mr.Simon, Mr.Thomas and Mrs.Reshmi who made... More

We stayed in this heaven like place from 18th to 21st May this year. We had a wonderful experience over there. One of my friend referred this place on 17th evening and we started by not having a confirmed ticket in train and managed to get a single berth for us and reached this place very tired. Once Mr.Thomas and... More

This was the most relaxing part of our homestay tour in Kerala. We arrived tired after a long car journey and found this the perfect cure. The villa was charming and very comfortable. The welcome was very friendly and the food was excellent. We stared at the lake for two days in perfect bliss. What more can you ask for?

We had a very wonderful experience here. One would get a mix of everything. From boating in the vast Lake along the property, to the serene boating experience in the backwaters, surrounded by lush greenery all around. Topping that the heartwarming hospitality of Sir Thomas and Reshmi along with their three smart kids gave our stay an added touch. The... More

What can I add to the other excellent reviews? "Thomas & Resmi lakeside cottages: the further you are away, the more you long for it?" I could write down a few more of these phrases. The place is just excellent. The great thing was that after a few days there, outside the day-to-day work and life stress, you're completely relaxed,... More

We stayed 3 nights and everything was great: the room (lake view), the beautiful garden, the warm hospitality of the owners and the excellent home cooked food. Thomas (the owner who also lives there with his family) was vey helpful in arranging trips for us in the region and everything worked out properly. The food (cooked by Resmi, Thomas's wife)... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Vembanad Lake Villas and the quality of the experience was, once again, extremely high. On both occasions, we flew in to Kochi and transferred to the Villas (under 2 hours) by a taxi arranged by the property. This visit we stayed for six nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. We find the...

Stayed at this warm , nice comfortable and cosy cottage for 1 night and we regret that we didnt stay for a longer duration. Getting up early in the morning and opening the door to the view of the silent beautiful lake is one of the moments that will be etched in my mind forever. This place is absolute value... More
