This is a huge property and ahare the same wall as taj. The wembanad lake looks beautiful from the property. Few rooms have amazing view of the canal, swimming pool and wembanad lake. For example room no. 107 and 108. The canal flows all over the property and each room is built over a truss with full wood. The restaurant... More

Lakeside resort surrounding the bird sanctuary. Lakeside rooms were good with airconditioning plus the usual facilities. Restaurant was ok but service was excellent. Swimming pool good. Reception was adequate but not good. WiFi available in the restaurant as well as the reception area.

Many things to say about this place and none are good.   We walked with our bags loaded long way from the main street to the reception. On arrival from the first moment, we did not feel welcome. It seemed as if our presence there bothered to the hotel staff. The rooms were dirty and with some broken furniture. My... More

This resort is very close to nature, which may be a slight challenge for the urban folk. We had to request to change our room as there was a spooky knocking sound on the roof (perhaps bats and coconut leaves combined). That apart, we had a very good stay -enjoyed a relaxing time in the pool, a motorboat ride on... More

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.

I was here in January, 2015 with my parents and sister. The ride to Kumarakom was easy and the resort was easy enough to find. The cottages are quaint and nice and so are the grounds. Definitely a nice resort but it seems to have fallen behind the times. The rooms look tired and the restaurant was so-so. Be prepared... More

The view of the backwaters and the sunset from the resort is awesome. If you are a nature lover / birdwatcher / photographer this is the rite... More
