I wasn't sure how many stars to give this review in the end I went with 3 but it could have been 2 if I'd written the review after the first night. I stayed for 3 nights at the end of a 10 night stay in Kerala and this was the worst hotel I stayed at. The room itself was... More

Lovely rooms, super views, helpful staff. Food there is good but menu somewhat limited. and alcohol is strictly banned. On our last day they messed us about big time with our taxi to the airport. We finally arrived at departures just in time to catch our flight. A horrible finish to what should have been a great stay

Very quiet, and a wonderful end to a tour around Kerala. No, its not top end, and yes, the electrics trip in and out - but not for long, and the rooms are cool enough to stay cool from the very efficient aircon whilst it trips! Great shower, spacious room and wonderful balcony to relax on listening to the waves... More

We stayed here for three nights last week. After the first night I was ready to give this place a 1-star rating. Later on things improved - and there were a number of really good aspects. What spoiled the experience for us initially was the fact that we had a pretty shabby, smelly room in which nothing worked. On arrival... More

In Indian terms slightly overpriced place. But if you want a get-away after spending much time in noisy Indian cities, it is a good choice. It is away from everything, with a very nice backwaters location, clean pool and relaxing (but pricy) ayurvedic therapies. Food is awesome, too. The staff is of very friendly, helpful people, always smiling. Mr Vishnu... More

I read previous reviews of the Beach and Lake and was beginning to wonder. However our stay was excellent. We stayed for three nights as part of a tour of Kerala. This small resort consists of an excellent swimming pool, massage centre, and rooms and then across the river on a gondola-like boat, more rooms and the restaurant. We stayed... More

this hotel was situated away from the main town, down a tiny back road. Our room was clean and big enough (it was supposed to be deluxe???). To get to our room we had to cross the river, the river was dirty, and to get to part of the beach we had to use the boat again. Luckily the restaurant... More

My wife and I stayed here for two days. The situation is unusual: our hotel room was away from the main block so we needed a punt (manned) to cross the 50 metre lagoon. This hotel has the benefit of solitude, but it is quite remote from Kovalum. It has a peaceful, tranquil atmosphere, just the sound of the breaking... More

This is definitely not a resort you want to go to anytime you're in Trivandrum. First of all, this hotel is totally un-Indian and targeted towards the Euro and Dollar public. Gosh, they tell you their rates in Euros! To start with, they changed my reservation to an isolated 100 sq. ft. servants' like room because they had supposedly "discontinued"... More
