My wife & I stayed at this property for 3 nights. We stayed in a deluxe allure villa. The villa was extremely spacious and very inviting. The bathroom deserves a special mention. It was huge, had a nice big bath tub and an open shower. What is more, there was a fan in there as well. The room had a... More

We had a great time staying here. It was a relaxing trip. You can enjoy boating in lagoon, cycling, morning canoe trip to local villages, pottery and many such activities. The way they promote local culture by inviting local artists to perform every evening is a great initiative. Food is awesome and the staff are very cooperative and friendly.

Great place for a family or romantic getaway. Its away from all the hustle and bustle of daily life. Pamper yourself with the healing Ayurvedic massage and singing birds. Spot a few Kingfishers and Woodpeckers. Devour the delicious food !

You can enjoy the beauty of the back water and good food in a leisurely way. drive takes a long time from town... More

Our expectation of a relaxed and a soothing 3 nights stay was shattered because of the extremely rude and indifferent attitude of some of the staff, including the General Manager Mr Jayanta Das. The staff under the guidance of the GM went to the extent of counting the number of breads/ bun being taken by children while having the buffet... More

Excellent place to stay. Staff were very friendly, helpful & cooperative. Overall we had a very nice time, except for the slow service at Curry Meen Restaurant. It took more than 45 minutes for the lunch / dinner to be served after placing the order.

We were a couple looking to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and the stay at Taj Vivanta Kumarakom was perfect. There were a bunch of families and kids, but given the large size of the property and the distance between the rooms this was not an issue. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a calm or quiet stay... More
