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.

This resort is in very good location with scenic view of backwater. Really one can remember Kerala very well staying here. Swimming pool is just next to backwater in excellent place. There is big place to sit and relax next to swimming pool where one can enjoy watching houseboats and boats. Restaurant is big and variety food in Buffet choice!

They say 13 Lake View rooms but there is actually only one. Unless you specify the room from the picture you will not have a view of the lake.
