I was facinated by the word "floating cottage" they used for the room type. And booked it to see what it is actually. Reality: Rooms are on water. But you will not feel floating because it never moves an inch. Location: Hotel is on a small (I suppose man-made) island in a lake. and they use small 2 seater ferry... More

Not at all what we expected. I am not sure what is so floating about the room, but in any case......the rooms inside is not bad. Sheets were dirty though! Restaurant is absolutely PATHETIC!! There is only one guy working behind the food counter and if you order something he has to go and collect it from where ever. Everything... More

Having read good reviews about the place and attractive pictures of the floating cottage, we booked the cottage for a significant price (well-above a four-star price) keeping in veiw the December peak season. However the entire experience was so disapointing..the resort has good rooms, but you are on an island, and there is absolutely nothing to do. There is a... More

This place was highly regarded and its worth the cost we pay. Th facilities in the room are good and we have a small balcony which faces the water. The other recreation facilities are OK. Carrom, fishing etc were really a namesake items and no really worth it. The boating is enjoyable. We missed the evening cruise due to heavy... More

What I most liked about this one is the place where it is constructed... on the backwaters..!! Its floating cottages are unique and gives extremely romantic and good view of backwaters. Service is average, I will say little bit disappointing but still acceptable. Hotel provides free fishing. Food quality is ok. Campus is very good when hotel is not fully... More
