We just visited kumarakom and stayed at waterscapes, it is best resort available at kumarakom. Good services friendly staffs. Very echo friendly rooms, a nice swimming pool. The best idea to save money is to eat food from other hotels. Food is a bit expensive there. I really like to visit waterscapes again

Add to this the amazing varieties of the local cuisine and you will not feel like coming back. The rooms are also very clear and offer warm room service also. Would recommend... More

The moment I entered the resort I knew its going to be a memorable stay. There is canal infront of the reception which foretold the experience. The canal view room 203 in which we stayed also offered lake view partially. The interiors of rooms are not as good as the exteriors. The foul smell of bats was evident and was... More

The best thing about this property is the location. Situated in the banks of Vembanad Lake, this is a wonderful property.Rooms and food were decent. The food was good, big portions so great for families. Average service and value. Rooms very not very clean , weird smell, Canals and lake stinks.

The best thing about this property is the location. The view from our room was stunning, marred by the room itself. The rooms leave a lot to be desired in terms of hygiene. The room we were initially put up in had an unbearable stench, which we were told was because of the monsoons. Our room was promptly changed but... More

Location was great. Rooms and food were decent. Very close to bird sanctuary and houseboat boarding area. Price was very nominal. Swimming pool cleanliness can be improved. Aldo bathroom taps were misfunctioning - minor inconvenience. Overall great value for money.
