Totally Under whelmed. Setting wonderful,staff excellent, beds super comfortable and housekeeping excellent.However the dining experience was poor,the main dining room resembled a cafeteria and not what one would expect from a five star hotel. I suspect the hotel is trying to cater for too many nationalities. South Indian food very disappointing. After two days we chose to dine elsewhere .... More

We visited Kumarakom Lake Resort in July 2009 and stayed at the Heritage Villa with private pool. It was perfect for two adults and two children aged 8 and 6 years. The service was impeccable. We loved the traditional food served in five-star surroundings.

I lived in Kerala for 10 years and have traveled there twice a year since 2012. I never miss a chance to go to Kumarakom Lake Resort located in the bucolic fishing village of Kumarakom in Kerala's backwaters. I have been privileged to have been one of their first guests since they opened and I feel like I am going... More

It was back in 2010 that we went to the Kumarakom Lake Resort for our honeymoon. But the memories are still fresh in my mind. It was through an extremely well-travelled friend that I came to know about the resort and infact she only booked us in advance at the resort. She suggested the heritage villa with a private pool,...

This is what the definition of a lake resort should be. Stayed for 2 nights and I would rate it one of the best lake resorts in India. Everything from check-in to check-out was perfect. The sea food restaurant was excellent, service top class and in general an amazing stay. Prices are steep but considering the place and service worth... More

From the cool coconut welcome drink to the beautiful rooms to a great massage centre, this hotel ticks all the boxes. The staff is professional and is ever ready to help. Breakfast spread is quite good. The swimming pools are nice with a view of the backwater lake. This hotel is perfect getaway place.
