We were in Kumarakom for our son’s wedding and although it was the wedding that made the stay very special, Zuri Kumarakom as a venue certainly enabled this to happen. We found everyone very friendly and helpful, the food amazing and we loved our villa with its private pool overlooking Vembanad Lake. Unlike some other guests, we found both the... More

Was at Zuri for dinner . The food was good but the place needs more care. The table was wobbly and please check your wine cellar. The red wine bottle was hot and we had to reject it. Not a pleasant thing to do .

It was spacious, well equipped and had a garden with swimming pool, loungers and a spectacular view over Lake Vambanad. A wedding was taking place over the weekend and apart from the joy of watching the... More

Having spent the night before next door at the Lakesong Lodge, the difference in luxury was obvious! We were welcomed at the gate by a cart taking us to the lobby to enjoy a fresh coconut! The decor was so beautiful - the statues and painting - lovely. The facility surrounds a lake which can "pull yourself across" as an... More

Before arrival I was excited to stay here, from beginning to end it was pretty poor. The booking process involved many emails, they wanted copies of ID and the front and back of my cards. When we booked we were told it was at the special wedding rate - later our friends got a higher level room than us for... More

Dear Guest, We noted your feedback closely.The whole event coordination was being handled by a event coordinator arranged by the host. Check in time is 3 PM and any arrival prior did have to wait for rooms to be ready though the team was being rushed by the event coordinators. The Guest service directory kept on the writing table features... More

We spent 2 nights here. Real classy hotel. Very friendly staff. Good food. We got a wrong room initially, but they switched to the right one without fussing. Nice ambience. Good amenities. Free biking, paddle boat, bamboo raft etc. Live music and classical dance every evening. Will stay again.
