Stayed at Waterscapes during Kerala tour in 2011for 2 Nights. Excellent resort amidst greenery of Kumarkom right in front of the sea. Amazing pool with bar. Suites were clean and well done. One can stay at this resort to relax for a few days. Met a few English ladies who had booked their sea facing suite for 9 days, just... More

We enjoyed the hotel and was good I would recommend for sure its value for money. It has good location and good staff. In my tour its not the best because welcome hotel Raviz at kollam has that all, otherwise this ktdc is a good hotel I would say.

The last leg of our trip was Kumarakom, Kerala and honestly, we did not go with high expectations, since the resort is govt owned and run. But all our doubts were thrown aside as soon as we checked in. The vast property that this resort is located on is wonderful and well maintained. It shares the same stretch of backwater... More

This resort quintessentially describes the gist of kerala. It hightlights all the elements which makes kerala special backwaters, flora, fauna and houseboats. Each room is essentially a elevated wooden cabin surrounded by canals on all the sides (and river facing in some cases). The property is located within bird santuary and you can hear chirping throughout the day. Ther restaurant... More

What a splending resort .. The Concept is unique and hard to believe it's run by the govt. KTDC does a wonderful job to offer this resort and this price.. Could have easily been aquired by TAJ which is next door and offered at thrice the price.. I want to write so much more but i'm a little busy now..... More

This is the place to stay if you want to explore God's own country in perfect setting. Lovely lake facing wooden cabins on stilts spread in natural setting adjoining a bird santuary. It has a clean swimming pool from which you can watch a beautiful sunset on the lake as lovely house boats gently glide while you listen to music... More

As per other reviews, this is a very pleasant, relaxing place to visit. The accommodation above the small canal is a different experience. The view of the lake is most relaxing as we watched houseboats go by. A short walk over to the main building for meals. Being on the waterfront the view of the water and the sunsets were... More
