We stayed here for one night with my elderly parents and our daughter. The whole place is serene and calming. The bird song in the morning calmed my heart and soul. The rooms were clean and inviting. The pool was a highlight, and my daughter spent most of her time in it! The food was wonderful. Lots of choices and... More

I had visited the Pearl Spot restaurant at this resort last year while in Kumarakom, and thoroughly enjoyed the slightly overpriced, but delicious lunch buffet. The property looked very beautiful, and this led to my family vacation there in August 2015. The place is calm and serene, and the well-planned, lagoon facing rooms (many of which are atop their own... More

The rooms are housed above water or above space with hammock.The rooms are really neat and well maintained. There were short lapses of electricity, but it wasn't a major concern. They do have a beautiful well maintained lake view swimming pool. The resort houses Emus, ducks and hens - Kids would love watching them. The bird sanctuary is very close,... More

During my visit to Bird Sanctuary, Kumarakom, visited this resort. Could not stay there due to non-availability of cottage of my choice. A very peaceful and quite resort on the back-water lake. Enjoyed the panoramic view. Cottages near the lake are very good. Would like to stay during my next visit to Kumarakom.

Though I could not stay there due to non-availability of cottage, could visit there. It is situated next to Bird Sanctuary. Cottages are quite big in size. Few are just opposite the back water lake. One can live in a peaceful atmosphere, enjoying the nature at its best. Could enjoy lunch in their restaurant. Could find north Indian tasty food... More

The hotel is right next to Kumarakom bird sanctuary and even has a direct entrance to the sanctuary. Situated in a very large property with lot of greens, the hotel is quite relaxing and gives you the feel of being in the midst of nature - in fact its like an extension of the bird sanctuary. They have lakeview cottages... More
