The whole day was spent in leisure (pool, walking, fishing etc.) You can ask for fishing rods if you wish to fish.

We visited here with my family and I must say it is the best relaxation holiday I have had for a very long time. The hotel is very clean the staff are extremely friendly and the food is yummy. I even had a shirodhara massage and it was bliss Will definitely go here again if ever visiting Back wateres again

In the most picturesque location is this beautiful resort that is a feast to the eyes. Had a short yet relaxing time there with family. So if you're at kumarakom just head to Backwater Ripples Resort. The ultimate place for nature-lovers to soak in all that beauty.

The hotel has individual cottages with good amenities. The staff was very friendly. We got a free 1 hour houseboat ride in the backwaters. The food was very nice. Very well maintained property. I would recommend anyone.
