The place was very good. We stayed in lake view room which overlooked the pool as well as the lake. The location and the maintainence are good. However there needs to be more options for food in the restaurant. For people staying there just to relieve stress the food options are very limited and half the items in the a... More

KTDC Waterscape has one of the greatest views of the Vembanad lake. This was my second visit here, First being only for one day I planned to be here at-least for two days and It was a great experience and pleasing environment. The hospitality is good and any uncomfortable situations were handled well. The food was good, less spicy and... More

Stayed there twice. Excellent property with scenic backwater views and quiet bird sanctuary. Room rates and food prices are pretty much value for money. Considering the fact that it's KTDC franchise, this one fares above expectation. Staff is really co-operative and go all in to help and do the needful. Food is overall good but can still improvise. Rooms are... More

This property is blessed with a very scenic location - facing the lake & situated inside the bird sanctuary. The cottages are like tree houses build above ground or canals. Overall an excellent place to stay. They also book boats for backwater rides with additional charges which is at par with market rate. One downside is , the property does... More

Another excellent property with KTDC! Very well maintained, very scenic location, do choose lakefacing rooms ( if you are willing to spend the extra bucks ). Canal facing rooms are great too. Closest place you can stay if you plan on visiting the Kumarakom bird sanctuary. Not uncommon to have winged friends hopping outside your cottage, while you observe with... More

All the cottage in here are same but the view of lake differs, if you are looking for a budget stay you can go for canal view cottage.we stayed there for 3 days in lake view cottages.

Must stay..spare at least one day. Nice, clean, well managed comfortable cottages. You will love sitting outside the cottage and roaming around. Water flowing from backwaters under the cottage gives pleasure..you can hear lot of animals and birds chirping. Bird santuary way is just walking from cottages..better place than Vivanta by Taj in terms of natural surroundings. Childeren will love... More
