The place has an expensive tropical feel to it.

I had been to this resort couple of times & this time it was with my school friends. the major highlight of the resort is the location, probably it is the best one among the options you find in Kumarakom. it's located inside a bird sanctuary & being nature lovers the narrow canals, serene backwaters, lush greenery & birds made...

Just next to the Vembanad lake with cottages and restaurant having good lake view. Also set in good greenery and natural... More

We stayed in this hotel in jan end. Huge resort. Awesome swimming pool. Lake view rooms has great view. Food is good. Not much activity to do. Taj resort is just next door. Bird sanctuary is in this resort only. Lots of insects because of so much greenery. a bit scary at night time.

The resort has beautiful views of the backwaters of Kerala. You can see the houseboats from the pool area. Very relaxing resort. The food is good. Staff very helpful and friendly. They have a massage centre inside the resort. They also have birds and emus and geese.
