The stay was very comfortable. Good keralite food. The reception gives a warm welcome. The cycling is a good adventure. You can relax near the swimming pool with the sea view or strll in the hotel garden for fresh air and enjoy nature.

Beautiful location and I'm sure when new it was stunning, good size rooms, but very dated and in need of some TLC. When we stayed the hotel was in the middle of a major building program, which means it was very noisy and as it is small there wasn't anywhere to find some peace, even the spa was saved from...

On arrival we were met by grumpy Eeyore female receptionist who made it clear that we were interrupting her day! The good news was that they had upgraded us to a lake view. We had heard that there there was a complimentary boat trip and she didn't mention it until we asked and replied that "It would probably be cancelled... More

We had early check-in at 11:30am. The hotel was exactly same I saw in the photos. I can see this hotel as one of the best in service, resort facilities, pool and view. The view is awesome. Pool is another beautiful place with complete view on to the backwater side. We really enjoyed the stay in this resort. The staff... More

Loved the ambience and the experience. Very relaxing... Our room was just besides the pool and the lake. The view was astounding, the service was good and the food was good as well. I recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Kerala.

Highly recommended property to spend precious moments with family or friends, with good service and food. Best property visited in recent times. Activities for all age groups with a perfectly located sunset view swimming pool. Truly mesmerizing.
