Had a wonderful experience with Cochin Day tours. I was looking for a hassle free premium holiday and Matthew ( +91 89 07 051000) was flexible and accommodating. He took the time to understand what I was looking for, we discussed options and I was very happy with the results. We did a 5day tour and KTDC was day 3.... More

We have taken three lake facing cottage in this hotel, location is like heaven. Rooms are big but mattress is not much comfortable but location is so nice u will not get time to think about other comfort. Food is average, spa is good but little expensive. We had enjoyed a lot in this hotel with our extended family.

While the resort and it's location is very beautiful, it needs to be maintained better.. Food is substandard as in most of the ktdc hotels... Though the food spread is decent the quality of the food items aren't great... The infinity pool is gorgeous, as are the pretty little cottages..

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.
