It was completely worth each penny. They have very courteous staff, beautiful rooms with exquisite woodwork and an amazing patio with scenic view! The resort is very nicely maintained. However, the approach road to the resort needs a lot of repair and there were no streetlights in the night. All in all, it was a very memorable and pleasant stay.

The resort was immaculate and staff were attentive and helpful. Amenities were great, particularly the day spa. Food was served in generous portions and had a mix of both Southern Indian and European cuisine on the menus. Only downside was that the free wi-fi was hardly ever accessible due to system failures.

If you dine there don´t forget to ask brushetta. (condimented with a touch of Indian style). Rooms are fine, views correct and excursions and travel offered from the hotel at average prices and more easy to book.

Its a heaven in God's Own Country, Kerala! Traditional architecture combined with excellent service made our three day stay extremely memorable. Children enjoyed swimming/playing in well maintained pools/play area. All the staffs were extremely helpful and the room service, very prompt.

The hotel has a Kerala wooden architecture touch and feel. We stayed in a Patio room, with a balcony (nothing to write about the view!). I didn't find any cottage that offers any great view, as the resort faces some adjacent concrete buildings , except may be for some of the pool facing ones. They made up for it in... More
