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...

This might be the best resort of its range in Kumarakom. The resort which offers excellent Jain food, prompt room service, outstanding location and importantly, humble staff. Thanks for making my Kumarakon stay worth it.
