The top floor rooms with view of the lakes on two sides through large windows is mind blowing. There are two separate rooms with attached corridor most suitable for families with children. They have a good swimming pool and a small lake where you can do paddling free of charge. An additional chart regarding the birds in the sanctuary is... More

Good clean rooms , good A/C. lovely surroundings. Great buffet meals but my only complaint is that all hotels in Kerala seem to use the wrong ceramic tiles on the bathroom floors . They use the same smooth wall tiles on the floor which makes it very slippery to walk on, when the floor is wet after your shower .... More

Stayed for one night on 20th May. It was a Superior Room with excellent facilities. The resort is at the back waters. The restaurant served delicious food. Very courteous and helpful staff. Free WiFi, free boating, free swimming and health club. What else one would need. TRUE VALUE FOR MONEY.

A lot of them were already deserted due to off-season but still not interested in giving an off-season discount. In contrast to the Royal Riviera where we... More

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).
