First things first-the property is surely a heritage one and that too at a fantastic location, right next to the boat jetty! Even the people/staff are very nice and helpful. The food could have more options, given that they have guests from all over the world. The thing that was a big put -off was the bad lighting all over... More

Booked this through stayzilla the annex rooms but due to some other booking were upgraded to Deluxe rooms. Heritage Home with its 1870's style setting and building is great but please visit with minimum expectations as this might not be to everybody's liking. Food is good but a tad overpriced at least for the breakfast. Pro's 1) Location of the... More

We stayed one night here in December, and were in one of the heritage rooms. The room itself was lovely and very clean, however the bathroom was a little more basic. The on-site restaurant serves very tasty food, as long as you have pre-ordered at least an hour before. We were woken up by the call to prayer at 4.30am,... More

It is true that Theravadu is a beautiful 1870s style house built along the river close to the Kumarkom Jetty. It's rooms - in the heritage building itself- are very nicely appointed indeed. However, do not necessarily expect to get what you paid for if you book a room online through any of the booking agencies. At least this was... More

I stayed in Tharadvadu Heritage home in Kumarakom for 2 nights in Dec-2014. We were a family of 8 and had booked 3 rooms in the Annex building. Even though the building is old, it is well maintained and looks very nice. The annex rooms were quite small (especially the beds). The rooms were good value for money, though they... More

The absolute highlight of our Kerala trip. The two nights we spent there are, will always be, unforgettable. Reminded me of my own childhood spent in quiet houses with lots of open spaces. One can just stay within the hotel premises and have a good time relaxing there. What made it even better was that we boarded a boat from... More

I stayed here for 2 days and the property is very beautiful. It's very close to the bird sanctuary. Everything was beautiful except for the mosquitoes at night. Don't forget to ask for the mosquito repellent. Service was very good. The guy at the reception was the sweetest person. They are very helpful. I will go back for sure but... More
