The only thing going for this place is the location. We ended up booking the standard lakeside cottage and were given a tiny room attached to the bigger lake view rooms. I didn't complain even though i had double confirmed with them about a lake view prior to arriving. However you can just take your chairs and plonk yourself by... More

Let's just see the pathetic aspects of this so called 'resort': 1. It's all dug and under construction. The partial resort which is constructed is very filthy and dirty. 2. The pproach road is very narrow and all all pot-holes. Very bad approach. 3. The lake front of the resort is too dirty and noisy. 4. The food is as... More

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.
