KTDC, being a government hotel, has a great advantage of building resort right on the banks of Vembanad lake. I had single days stay here and it was really great place. 1. The resort location is just next to Kumarkom bird sanctuary, some rooms over the canals and some rooms right on the bank of Vembanad lake. 2. The place... More

Beautiful and relaxing place to stay amidst nature. We stayed last week in Lake View Room which had an amazing view of greenery, pool and the lake. Food at there restaurant was delicious and quite reasonably priced. Overall we enjoyed our stay at Water Escapes.

A wonderful place to be with your loving family and best place for nature lovers. This will be a peaceful place for relaxing in the middle of nature. The rooms are pretty good.

To begin with mentioning good points, The restaurants serves delicious fishes, I could enjoy those foods with drinking beer. And staffs were really polite, none of them showed me arrogant and selfish attitude, which I can see often in similar price hotel in India. I went this hotel to enjoy boat cruise along backwater, However I was disappointed that how... More

You are actually paying for the location of this property.... all the cottages are elevated from the ground... cottages are spacey and neat... u have to remember this is a government ran property so u wont feel the posh of private resorts... Excellent place in the property is the restaurant. its built on top of the back water and you... More
