Underloved and need-of-a-cleaning rooms and bathrooms. The exterior and the courtyard areas of Theravadu are even more beautiful than on their website so its a shame the rooms/bathrooms do not match this quality. Rooms/bathroomsw need a great big cleaning and regular upkeep, especially for the price they are charging for these rooms. Here they are using the fancy phrase “... More

A place to experience a beautiful Kerala traditional home, delicious Kerala cuisines and very pleasant Kerala music that makes it's way from a temple just opposite to this property. In short, it was a treat to the eyes, tongue and ear ! Moreover, the staffs are very courteous and helping people. However, the toilet needs to be upgraded a little.... More

It was a right decision to have chosen Tharavadu Heritage Home for our stay at Kumarakom. The cottages are very well maintained and the ambiance is excellent. Above all the food is really homely and moderately priced. Overall a very satisfactory stay.

I stayed here for 3 nights when I travelled to Kumarakom for work during peak season (December). I loved the cottage style rooms here and the large number of trees that surrounded the property giving it a rural vibe. The hotel's got a canal flowing in it's backyard and a beautiful south Indian temple and children's school on the other... More

Nice heritage house a little past it's best. The superior rooms are overpriced at 2800Rp including breakfast. Food was ok but nothing special. Wifi is very weak and air con wasn't working. Staff are friendly and at half the price these rooms would be fine. Cannot really recommend.

We spent five nights at Tharavadu and found the rooms to be be clean comfortable and of good value. All the staff were terrific. In the past I have found Indian hospitality oversells itself and does not deliver. It was a welcome relief to be treated with honesty and integrity, we appreciated that so much. The grounds are lovely, picturesque... More

Very close to Boat jetty. One can use KSRTC boats to go in Allepy district @ just Rs. 10 / person. Private boats are also available @ Rs. 500/ hour. If time permits take full round of 3 hours including canal+ lake( total Rs. 1500). Houseboats are too costly. 8000-10000 for ac houseboat so better avoid. Staff was good and... More

Good thing about the the place is its a stones throw from the Govt Jetty where you can get either house boats or shikharas. Hotel staff were also courteous and were prompt in room service. Place is well maintained and run well by Mr. Murali and his staff.

Frankly, I wanted to book a luxury resort but couldn't get any due to last minute travel plan and hence decided to go with Tharavadu Heritage Home, based on lonely planet recommendation for a budget accomodation. And I have to say, they were very very good for the cost at which they offer their rooms (I booked their costliest AC... More
