We, including 2 young kids, enjoyed the surrounding and garden at the Illikkalam Lake Resort. The staff do not know english and was very difficult trying to explain what we required. Everything is chargable, including the hammocks, fishing rods (a small stick with twine attached that barely reaches the water), the cycles. Even room service is charged extra. Food was... More

We stayed on the Diwali weekend and it was the most relaxing experience staying on their lakeside cottages, relaxing on the hamlock, fishing, home cooked meals and a lovely staff. The rooms are well maintained and must go for someone searching for a calm and relaxing exp

I stayed at the lakeside cottages of this property on Oct 15th and it was a great experience. The rooms are impeccably maintained. The lawns has many trees and everywhere you see, it is lush green. The staff are well-trained but could do better if knew either a national language or English. I managed with sign language and during my... More

I thought planning is the best way to enjoy your holiday in better way, but this hotel proved it wrong. In-spite of booking this hotel 4 weeks in advance through expedia,They refused to give us the room saying that they did not get any payment from expedia. Now at 11th hr you cannot do like this. Seeing all negative reviews... More

I stayed there for two days. nothing is good to write about the hotel. 1. You need to pay extra amount if you are check in the hotel before 12. that extra amount is the half of your rent. 2. No telephone is working. You need to call personally for any help. 3. Rate of the food is like 10... More

I had booked 2 lakeview rooms in March for 2 nights stay 28th, and 28th September 2014. At the time of booking the owner of the resort Mr. Salim Das, asked for full payment, and also made it clear that it was totally noncancellable. I agreed to the terms and booked. I with my family of four turned up evening... More

Felt like we almost ruined our 7 day Kerala trip once we stepped into this place. We arrived at around 10 PM, and the gate had a print-out on display saying - "Sir, please open the door and proceed to reception" ! At the reception are 2 men half asleep in the most unprofessional outfit you would ever associate with... More

Visited in April 2012, This was a small lake resort with limited facilities and totally managed by women. It has beautiful backwaters lake view and one could spend any amount of times besides the lake. We did a boat tour arranged by the resort and boat had come till the resort which was quite convenient.
