Location is very good, resort is well maintained. Bird sanctuary is next to resort. But food is bit expensive, you have no choice but to take such expensive food. Apart from food everything is best. Pool is well maintained.

The hotel is a huge property located on the edge of bird-sanctuary and is a treat for nature lovers. The location on the banks of Vembanad lake is perfect as one can sit outside the room and gaze at boats passing by silently all day. The resort is full of birds and greenery, one feels as if one is staying... More

Checked in around 12 in the afternoon and ventured out in the evening to the deck which the hotel has on the Vembanad lake. The property is very famous for its location and in fact it did not let us down on that regard. The sunset... More

We were all dumbstruck by the beauty snd the location of this resort. The rooms were neat and so were the bathroom which even had a bathtub. It was right on the banks of the backwaters. We had lunch in their restaurant and the food was really tasty but expensive though. The room service was slow. We almost got lost... More

The property is located inside the bird sanctuary facing the vembanad lake. We had booked superior lake view room for 2 nights. There is a major problem with the rooms, since there are plenty of bats around the area, the whole room stinks of bat-poop from the room. We changed 3 rooms and realised that the problem lies with all... More

We stayed here in Feb 2014. We came here with a group of 10 people. The rooms are very good. They are private clean and spacious. The grounds are well maintained and there are things like bird watching and butterfly sanctuary on the premises. The restaurant is good, a buffet breakfast and dinner are available. Lunch is a la carte.... More
