During my first Kerala trip, spent two relaxing days at this resort. While searching for it the first night, felt it to be in a secluded place. But once you enter the property, it is nautural beauty in full bloom. Tastefully decorated reception, well maintained gardens, beautiful backwater shore. What more do you want ? Service non obtrusive but efficient.

That is what I found in this hotel, beautiful views, decent amenities, and the most courteous and eager to... More

The staff are friendly and helpful. Free WiFi is available in the reception, pool and restaurant areas. Our washing 29 items accumulated over the... More
