This is situated away from bird sanctuary on a side canal, not on the main lake. The Kumarakom village is also away from the resort. Rooms are big. On one side rooms are lake facing (waterfront rooms). On other side rooms are garden facing. Water front rooms are better for view. We have booked two waterfront rooms but were given... More

This resort location is difficult to find as there is no sigh board to the narrow lane where the resort is located. On arrival the front desk is old which needs up gradation. The rooms are very spacious and it faces the backwaters with a beautiful view. There is a big balcony where you can sit and admire nature's beauty.... More

This resort has a lot going for it: it is right on a backwater and you can take boats from the property. When we stayed (Late February 2014) there were not enough guests for a buffet in the restaurant but food from the a la carte menu was generous, varied and good. The maintenance of the property could be improved:... More

+ Excellent resort with a breathtaking view from the room balcony. Facilities such as swimming pool and table tennis are there which are easily accessible. Food is awesome at both breakfast and dinner. Rooms are spacious and neatly maintained. Backwater boat ride is one of the best experiences one can have while in Kerala - no wifi internet water bottle... More

A group of us checked in to the resort and were amazed at the efficient check-in. We were shown our rooms which again were large and very comfortable. We all had balconies which overlooked the Backwaters. The restaurant at the resort served delicious food and the staff were very courteous and helpful. Loved our stay here and would recommend it...
