We live in Kochi. We stayed here for one night as I had to deliver a training in Kottayam. I worked, but my husband was able to enjoy the place while I was working. We really weren't sure how it was going to be after reading mixed reviews here. We were wondering also if it would be worth it (financially).... More

This place is amazing and peaceful. You get an amazing view of the lake from the windows as well as Balcony of your cottage. The spa is rejuvenating though you have to book your treatment in advance. Ambience is classy and you get a peaceful atmosphere. If you want to chill out this is the place you should visit...!!!

I became particularly intrigued with the town of Kottayam when I heard about the two firsts which it had; it was the first city in India to achieve 100% literacy (in late 1980s) and also became the first Indian tobacco free district in late 2000s!! I had previously not heard about the place and given my inquisitive nature I decided... More

I know we are at the same place reviewed many times in tripadvisor.com, but it is nothing like described. The Windsor House and The Heritage Resort are one and the same. Check-in is done for both at The Windsor. Maybe The Heritage Resort used to be a nice place. It really has the potential. The grounds have many venues that... More

The garden overlooks the backwaters.The lawn is so neatly maintained that we can allow our children to play outside. The atmosphere we were feeling there was excellent. Its calm... More
