Very good property. Nice and spacious rooms. Probably the biggest i have ever stayed in. We stayed in lake side rooms and view throughout the day was amazing. The location is outskirts and you cant go out unless you have a vehicle at your disposal. Resort has activities such as indoor activities, cycling, pool bath, ayurveda, boating etc. If you... More

We were told that we'l have a buffet lunch as well as dinner. But by the time we reached there, we were told... More

Located beside the Vembanadu lake and with a lagoon on the southern side. It's inside a village, in Vaikom , the road leading to the resort is bit narrow. Well manicured lawns, swaying coconut trees and water bodies everywhere around is indeed a feast for the eye. The pool needs maintenance. Lots of activities like health club, paddle boat, country...

If I have to describe my stay of two nights at Kalathil, it would be - Beautiful location, Outstanding hospitality, fantastic food and Comfortable stay. I traveled with my family comprising two infants. So things like a mini fridge and an electric kettle in the room were of great help. Being north Indians, we were pleasantly surprised that even the... More

I came to the area on business. My first trip to India! After the wild ride through the city streets, we came into the beautiful resort. I was told not to expect much compared to American hotels. I was astonished at the beauty and perfectly kept grounds. I stayed 10 days and was comfortable every minute. My room was very... More
