The rooms and interiors are sort of ok. The toilet is just about clean, with no great fittings. The location is great. It is by the side of a canal, which has many houseboats parked. From balcony you can see paddy fields stretching to infinity. I believe the hotel has some amenities to keep your kids entertained too. It is... More

Decent property with a small pool, a pond for inhouse pedal boating, a small corner with some birds. The service here is extremely slow, they were really short of staff at the time we were staying there. room services needed multiple reminders. The water here is not clean at all, it does not seem to have a good water treatment... More

This hotel has all, what one can expect at this price. They have very nice suite rooms with great views. One side has the backwater's view while the other has a landscape. We spent a night there. The very day we checked in, it rained & made our stay so nice there. Staff is so friendly. Breakfast is just yummy.... More

From Cochin it took four hours drive to reach this Royal Riviera resort in Kumarakom.Passing through the paddy fields,endless coconut trees lining both the side of the road is a feast for the eyes.The hotel is at the bank of the backwater. Well maintained garden welcomes you. They have a decent clean swimming pool and backwater for paddle boats in... More
