This property is located right in front of the India's second largest lake, Vembanad lake. We stayed in the lake view cottage which provides the best view right from the room window & door. Despite of being a government property, it is very well maintained, full of natural beauty and a very relaxing place to stay. Rooms are descent with... More

Good separate huts. Maintained well. Avoid ayurveda center in the resort which is too costly. Same service could be had at a much lower price elsewhere. Buffet needs improvement. Overall, property is worth the money. Can revisit.

Stayed here for one night.. But, certainly it was an excellent experience.. The area is well maintained, one would definitely feel to be in nature's lap..rooms are well furnished with all modern amenities.. Most importantly the restaurant is a special attraction of the place.. It's on the lake which offers a splendid view of the lake and the beautiful houseboats... More

We not expecting much out of this property at it is a Govt(KTDC) owned property, but to my surprise it was heavenly, the resort itself is in the middle of the bird sanctuary and we could see rare varieties of bird siting just outside our rooms. The check in was smooth and very quick and the welcome drinks were nice.... More

If you want to experience and explore nature with all its essence, Water Scapes Kimarakom is an ideal place for you. We were lucky to have the opportunity to sleep in the cabanas (huts) close to and directly facing the lake. The Hotel offers comfortable stay in the midst of nature. One side is facing Kerala's famous Vembanadu Lake, while... More

I and my wife have recently visited waterscapes Kumarakom in Feb 2015 as part of our 36th Wedding Anniversary holidays. Initially I was very skeptic to book an accommodation here as property belongs to KTDC, a Govt. of Kerala organisation but after some research, I found that Waterscapes has the best location in Kumarakom and probably the largest area.
