Small streams running under the cottages. The pool is right on backwaters. Cannot get more picturesque than this...amazing place to relax and unwind !! No direct view of the backwaters from the cottages, except for the ones which they specifically mention on their website. Food is average. Room service is slow. Go there primarily for the greenery all around.

We visited Kumarakom on the second leg of our Kerala tour. The drive from Munnar to Kumarakom in the Tempo Traveler was arduous and took nearly 6 hours. We arrived at KTDC Waterscapes by 3 pm. We had booked 3 Lake View Cottages but 2 Cottages were upgraded to Superior Lake View Cottages. My first impression immediately upon entering the... More

When I booked for a weekend with family at the Water Scapes, I never expected such brilliant property inside the small gate on the roadside. Once you are in, it's a different world. The bird sanctuary visit by foot is so memorable and a the view of lakhs of birds from the watch tower is a feast to the eyes... More

We had travelled from Kochi to Kumarakom to stay in this KTDC property, which was right next to the Taj Vivanta property in Kumarakom. The property is beautiful and looks like its within a wildlife sanctuary. Check in was easy and people helpful to put through our luggage in the cottages. Thick trees all around the independent cottages which are... More

I lived here during my holiday in December 2012. It is a calm place. My favorite part of the day was breakfast time when I would eat a wholesome meal (along with lots of fruits) while watching the lake! A bird sanctuary is right next to this place. So you can walk into that at your convenience. The place from... More

The place was like a picture postcard. The jungle surrounding the resort is a bird sanctuary & ideal for an morning/evening walk. However the area is dark after sunset. Don't forget to carry mosquito repellents. Overall good stay.
