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

The Tharavadu Heritage is a good place to stay. We easily upgraded our rooms at some extre cost as they were available. The Govt. boat jetty is at 5 mins walking distance where you can get a tremendous experience of backwaters @Rs 10 per person. We were allowed to cook maggie for my Kid which make us great to feel....

If you try one thing in your stay at Tharavadu, it has to be the fish wrapped in a banana leaf. The fish is called a Karimeen and is sourced locally and comes with some fantastic spiced chutney. A really authentic experience for any traveller, and mixed with the humidity, sound of the nearby temple, fantastic and observant service, it... More
