The hotel is ideally located by the backwaters and offers a serene location for anyone looking for a get-away. The food is absolutely worth every penny, both in terms of taste and portion sizes. The staffs were helpful and always ready to offer assistance. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a hotel in Kumarakom. :)

I would not advise to anyone to have a house boat from this group. The worst experience I had in my entire trip was this house boat. They do not provide whatever the commit like flower decorated bed, wedding cake and welcome drink (coconut water).
