I was here to spend my birthday with my family. Resort gives a nice view of sea front. Rooms are ok. I had a room with a lake view. Ducks roaming around in the resort. We all took massage at the resort. We all liked it. Foot massage was relaxing. But, the food !!! No it was even average. Do... More

Awesome views from the property of lake. Good rooms however rooms were having open rain dance bathrooms without any curtains which i think should be improved. The bad thing was that during our candle light dinner they kept it inside the restaurant which i think could be kept outside and also they served only soup remaining dinner a couple needs... More

This is a very nice place to stay. Lovely clean outdoor pool, nice rooms, good restaurant. A great location beside the backwaters, you can take a canoe or motorboat ride to admire the other properties along the backwater, and fishers as well. Only downside is that there is no beach or way to access the water itself, so you will... More

Lovely location, just the place to unwind after 2 weeks of travelling around Kerala. We arrived by houseboat, checked into our lakeside view cottage, lazed around the pool. We had 2 nights there, fortunately we had our own supply of alcohol with us as we were aware the hotel did not serve booze. Staff, in the main, were friendly and... More

Beautiful property. With a superb scenic location. Morning scenery is beyond words. If you have a good budget then u can stay at the bamboo cottages . Pool is excellent which faces the lake. Indoor games like carom & TT are also available. Food is good

For me a hotel is not about just scenic location and beautiful construction. A hotel or a resort is defined by its service and its staff, who actually makes the stay for their guests enjoyable, relaxing and memorable. Abad Whispering Palms has a beautiful property located at perhaps one of the best locations of Kumarakom, but unfortulately it is ruined... More

Positives: Abad brand name, location, pool with lake view. Negatives: No BAR, too expensive for the property available, unpleasant front office, not great food. Felt like locked up in a scenic jail! This is not a bad place if the tariff comes close to INR3500.
