The place was excellent with the river view from the bed.. an ideal place for a visit for a honeymoon with a king size bed having a view of the river from the bed itself... The landscape to the enterance of the rooms are neatly planned and maintained.. The stage is ideal to have small functions.. The food is too... More

The view from every cottage is great. Hotel staff is very helpful. Food is reasonably & quality is good. Rooms are good. Book a floating cottage in this resort rather than a houseboat and you will never regret it.

Then a 10 minutes boat ride to the island. Warm reception with a welcome drink. About ten floating cottages with twin... More

I stayed at this property on 10th Jan'14 during my honeymoon. This property is situated on actual Island. I was thinking that 'Island resort' is just name as it is situated near water. We were flabbergasted when we saw hotel property in middle of water. There are small boats which take you to resort. Resort has 18 rooms. During our... More

We stayed here 1 night and we liked everything about this hotel. It is located in the middle of water and you have to go via speed boat. The food is excellent. All the cottages have an amazing view and the rates are also reasonable as compare to other water front cottages in kerala.

We were double booked at Kondai Lip so they put us here… as my daughter said mum there is no Emerald and no pride here. They had a dead pigeon floating outside our superior room and I had to ask twice for it to be removed. The aquarium had a big sign offering "a natural glass pond with various types... More
